In China, where rose Medicinal are documented for nearly 30 centuries, the berries of a local variety are used against the dysfunction of the urinary tract and, because of their astringency, against chronic diarrhea.

Prepared in syrup, they are widely used to give a pleasant flavor to these medicinal drinks that, historically, children have attempted to spit out systematically, in defiance of common sense. The pills of quinine, in particular, who were extremely bitter and that coated with a "making of dog roses" prepared on the basis of some pulp to two parts sugar which was triturated until all of a uniform paste.

The "seeds" and their hair is known to be diuretics. Be sure to pass the tea well before taking it. One of the best ways to keep the berries all their richness in vitamin C, to prepare a raw puree. The flesh is removed by removing the seeds and their hair and passed just to the mixer. We can add this puree to morning cereal or stewed. But it must be eaten as soon as possible because it does not keep.

The flowers are mainly used in cosmetics. Because of their astringent properties, they are supposed to tighten pores and firm up the grain. They were also used as a mild laxative and as a healing in ulcers, wounds and fungal inflammation of the eyelids.

The "bédégar" caused a gall on the leaves of the wild rose by an insect, was once used as an anthelmintic, diuretic and lithotripsy, but later it was used exclusively as an astringent.

This is usually the bay dog rose (Rosa canina) that is used in medicine. It is not native to our region but it can be found occasionally in some protected environments where temperatures are consistent with those of zone 5. It can also be provided to implement protection against cold weather.

The rose hip rose (Rosa eglanteria) is found in waste places - including pastures - especially in calcareous soil. The thornless rose (Rosa blanda) is found in dry places, especially limestone, throughout Quebec. The rough rose (Rosa rugosa) is an escaped cultivation and is therefore especially around the old gardens.
