The Romans had more luck with using an oil called Rosa Canina to heal dog bites, and from hieroglyphics (see image) we know that the ancient Egyptians then starting experimenting by using various plant based oils in skincare; including rosehip oil!


So historically rosehip has been used for generations, as a natural remedy used not only by the ancient Egyptians, but by the Mayans and the Andean Indians of Chile – who apparently were the first to discover its healing benefits. Rosehips were even used during World War II to help combat  coughs and colds thanks to their extremely high Vitamin C (antioxidant) level –  which is almost 60 times higher than that of any other citrus fruit.
