Dog Rose (Rose canina)

Dog Roses (Rosa canina) form prickly tangles highlighted with beautiful, pink flowers. They can be so tangled that folks have thought them to be Blackberries.

Dog Roses, like all Roses, bring peace. The beautiful flower, showing from a tangle of worldly thorns, suggests peace within trouble.

All the Roses cool and soothe, a tea made from the fresh petals is a sure way to relax and soothe the mind. Using Rose Oil is a very common way for people to seek peace  and heal heartache.

Rose Hips are a fruit common to many species of Roses and have amazing healing properties. Because of that, I’ve given them their own page here – Rose Hips
