Common Magickal Uses and Folklore Rose Hip
The Rose Hip or Rosehip, also called Rose Haw, is the accessory fruit of the rose plant. It is typically red to orange but ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rose Hips begin to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer and ripen in late summer through autumn.
Rosehip tea has a powerful punch of Vitamin C; a single cup can contain an entire day's supply of Vitamin C needs. Some varieties of berries have as much as 40 times more Vitamin C than oranges and lemons. Rosehips have B Complex Vitamins, Vitamin E, antioxidants, bioflavonoids, polyphenols, and other vitamins, nutrients, and compounds that help keep the body strong. The teas are a natural, healthy energy boost that lasts all day and won't cause the draining crash of energy later.
They are associated with the planet Venus and the element of water, used for many love and peace spells. Rosehips can create a peaceful, calm atmosphere. Use this herb for ritual baths for work concerning love, soulmates, and companionship, as well as a relief of stress and negativity.
Placed in sachets around the home can bring back harmony and peace, especially if there is a lot of disharmony or upheaval.
Rosehip syrup is good for colds, sore throats, and a source of vitamin C; take a teaspoonful or two daily to prevent colds.
