Profile: Rosa canina is a climbing rose cultivar known as Dog Rose, as its botanical name suggests. During World War II, this plant was among the food crops often grown in private "victory gardens" to supplement the public food supply.
The petals were used to prepare teas, syrups, elixirs, and numerous cosmetic treatments back then, as they are now.
Rose petals are high in polyphenols, which are antioxidants that protect cells from harm. Heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cognitive problems have all been linked to the polyphenols in rose tea.
