Fall - Autumn Equinox
A time to harvest
As fall began on September 22, 2021 in the West, the season to harvest roses has shifted from petals to rosehips. It is generally a good time to harvest rosehips up until the winter. Or buy rosehips at a local store or online to add to your lifestyle for health and beauty purposes.
Check out a beautiful blog poston Rose Hips by Herbalist Colleen ('Foraging Rose Hips & Wild Rose: Identification, Harvesting, & Uses') for more inspiration here.
A number one skincare choice for many is to incorporate rosehip seed oil into their daily or weekly routine to take care of face and body. I have personally seen people's scar issues disappear to breakout being reduced as well. It is one of the ingredients that go into most of the Virtueberry salt scrubs, including one of the most popular ones, the Himalayan Rose Salt Scrub.
A more in-depth Virtueberry post on rosehips can be found from last September here.
Virtueberry hopes you keep your skin beautiful, hydrated and exfoliated during this season! And do keep cozy with some candlelight as the darker months approach us.
