Rose Hips

Botanical name: Rosa canina 

Rose Hips can go by the names Rose haw, Rose hep, or Rosehip and is actually an accessory fruit of the rose plant. The Rose Hip is the oval shaped fruit or seed pod of the rose plant and is found directly beneath the flower after successful pollination. They begin to develop in the spring or early summer and are not usually seen because people prune their rose bushes back to encourage more flowers. Rose hips can range in color from an orange-red to a dark purple or even black depending on the species and harvesting time. 


Our bulk Rose Hips are always in stock and come dried for a variety of uses. Whether you are looking for a few ounces or hundreds of pounds, look to Bulk Apothecary to be your number one Rose Hip supplier. 


Dried Rose Hips

Dried Rose hips are a common ingredient in many crafts, decour, and potpourri. They are popular in both fall and winter blends as they can be earthy and harvestfull or brightly festive. 


Many people use dried Rose Hips in potpourri for their color, texture, and ability to fragrance. To make your own RoseHip potpourri you will need the following. 

  • 1 pound (16 oz) dried rose hips

  • Favorite essential oil or fragrance oil  (cinnamon is an office favorite and blends very well)

  • Sealable Glass container

  1. Place rose hips in a glass container

  2. Add 25-40 drops of essential/fragrance oil

  3. Store in an airtight container for 1 week before use

  4. Shake daily


You can use our Rose Hips on their own for your potpourri, or add additional ingredients. Pine cones, Pine needles, dried orange peels, cinnamon sticks, cacao slices, and lotus pods all make great eye catching additions to your personal potpourri. Rose Hips can be used for more than just potpourri. They can be placed in glass jars alone or with other botanicals for a decorative centerpiece, or scatter them over the table at your next party for a pop of texture. An autumn wreath can be fashioned with Rose Hips still on their stems, they work well as a filler at the base of a candle, they can even be used in making those popular miniature fairy houses or gardens! We are more than just one of the nation's top suppliers of rose hips, we have many unique items in our Decorative Botanicals section for additional crafting and potpourri inspiration. 


Rose Hip Benefits 

Rose Hips are rich in vitamins A and C and studies show fresh rose hips can contain 8 to 40 times more vitamin C than oranges! In fact, during World War II the British government used rose hips to make rose hip syrup as a supplement for vitamin C to prevent scurvy because citrus fruits were impossible to get.  The benefits of Rose Hips can be traced back many years. It was popular in folk remedies for wound healing, arthritis relieving, diuretic and laxative properties. People also thought that sleeping with rose dhips under your pillow would help relieve nightmares. Rose hip oil is used in many of today's beauty products because it is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A and C, and antioxidants.  The beauty industry claims these properties can hydrate, moisturize, reduce inflammation and boost the collagen in your skin.
