The Rosa canina, often called incorrectly Rosehip, is a variable scrambling rose species. It is a deciduous vigorous-growing shrub that is native to Europe, northwest Africa and western Asia. This soft-branched bush has long, prickly shoots and grows 9 feet high by 9 feet wide. Its bright green, oval-shaped leaflets are finely serrated and taper to a point. Its showy, fragrant blooms are white and pink and are in flower from June to July, followed by the ripening of its seeds from October to December. The fruit is red, succulent, ovoid, and truncated.

The plant has numerous edible uses, including coffee, flowers, fruit, seed, and tea. Its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked, and it is used to make jams and syrups. Its petals are eaten as a vegetable in China and are used to make a scented jam in other locations.

Bach flower applications: For lingering memories of the past, nostalgia, excessive reminiscence, recurrent dreams of past events, regrets, and homesickness. The positive aspect of this remedy is to allow the mind to reflect and enjoy past memories, but be able to focus on the present. These applications also apply to Plant Stem Cell Therapy.

A monogalactosyl diacylglycerol containing two linolenic acid (18:3 n-3) acyl groups has been described in fruits of dog rose (Rosa canina) and was shown to be an anti-inflammatory agent (inhibition of cell migration). This may be directly related to the clinically observed anti-arthritis properties of rose hip herbal remedies (Larsen E et al, J Nat Prod 2003, 66, 994).

Several substances can convert into vanillin. Most attention is focused on bioconversions of ferulic acid to vanillin. Isoeugenol can also be converted into ferulic acid and then on to vanillin. Like many polyphenols found in plants, vanillin has antioxidant and anti-tumor activity.
