About Wild Rose
Wild rose is a hybridized rose which is far different from the usual European and Asian roses we know. These roses have a lot of benefits, but without the fruits, the fragrance, and vigor that comes with the usual roses.
Across many locations like Asia, North America, the Middle East, and Europe, these roses have been useful over the years in treating many health conditions, and many cultures radically discovered this. Unlike those in Europe who preferred to have a single or uniform solution in their medical practices, many others in Native America made use of the different Rose species that grew in their locations. These treatments were used to treat conditions like muscle soreness externally. They also made many drinks from roots to treat colds, diarrhea, and the flu. Leaves were also chewed and applied topically for healing bee stings.
In Asia, many of the wild roses have been cultivated for traditional medicine with seeds used as laxatives for many health challenges like arthritis, diabetes, and irregular menstruation. In Europe, on the other hand, the wild rose became a unique herbal formula with a book written by Roman author Pliny's Natural History in 79 A.D, where more than 30 illnesses were recorded as cured. Modern science has confirmed that traditional medicine made use of roses, especially with the absence of Vitamin C, which was later discovered in 1912.
