What is Rosehip?

After a rose flower finishes blooming it leaves behind a fruit called a Rosehip - a bright red fruit . They are best picked in autumn when ripe and full of goodness. Blended with other herbs and flavourings they can be used in all sorts of cookery, including tea.

Let's explore the secrets behind this bold herbal blend and answer the burning question: does it deserve its claim to fame?

From Humble Herbs to Hollywood Glow:

This seemingly unexpected duo boasts a powerhouse combination of natural goodness:

  • Nettle: Packed with vitamins A, C, and K, minerals like iron and magnesium, and anti-inflammatory compounds, nettle soothes irritation, reduces redness, and promotes collagen production for a firmer, more youthful appearance.

  • Rosehip: Bursting with the highest natural concentration of vitamin C, an antioxidant superhero, rosehip shields your skin from free radical damage, combating wrinkles and sunspots. Its anti-inflammatory properties also calm breakouts, promoting a clearer complexion.

Beyond the Beauty Buzz:

While the "glow factor" is undoubtedly alluring, Rosehip & Nettle tea offers more than just skin-deep benefits:

  • Detoxification: Nettle's diuretic properties help flush out toxins, potentially contributing to overall well-being, which can indirectly reflect on your skin.

  • Digestive Support: Both herbs have a history of supporting healthy digestion, which can indirectly contribute to clearer skin by reducing gut-related breakouts.

So, does it live up to the hype?

Incorporating Rosehip & Nettle tea into your routine alongside a balanced skincare routine can offer several advantages:

  • Antioxidant boost: Combat free radicals and potentially reduce signs of ageing.

  • Anti-inflammatory: Soothe irritated skin and potentially alleviate certain skin conditions.

  • Detoxification: Promote overall well-being, which can indirectly benefit your skin.

The Verdict:

Of course, Tea alone can't solve all of our skin problems but it can play apart in improving it, offering nourishment and support. Embracing the power of plants for a healthy, radiant glow that comes from within is the best start. For targeted benefits, consider using a natural Rosehip oil alongside your Tea routine.
