The Modern History of Rosehip Syrup: In the Second World War, there was no citrus fruit available which provided vitamin C, which was in short supply. So when the government laboratories found that rosehips contained very high vitamin C, they sent schoolchildren out into the countryside collecting rosehips from the hedgerows. These were then processed into syrup and were given to babies, children and adults on a daily basis to prevent illness and for health benefits, and a great tradition had been born. Production of rosehip syrup continued after the war ended, even when it was no longer needed. In fact, during the 1960s it was still obligatory for mothers to give it to their babies, but by the early 1970s cheaper artificial vitamin C had been created resulting in the decline in use of this natural wonderful & powerful product. ABOUT The Rosa Canina plant was introduced to Britain through the Romans, who planted it throughout the Roman Empire due to its healing ability. The benefits of rosehips have been known for centuries.
