Briagha or wild rose (rosa cinnamommea l.) is a barbed bush widespread in most countries of Europe, Western and Eastern Siberia (by the Baikal Lake). It grows mainly along rivers, roads and in the edge of forests. People use it as a medicinal, culinary, decorative and honey plant. Edible are petals and small red fruits. The petals are used dried with honey during the treatment of cold and grippe. The fruits contain different polyvitamins, pectins and natural acids. Decoction of the fruits is a good medicine for kidney, liver and pulmonary diseases. In Western Siberia, the Mansi shamans (probably it would be interesting to know that the Mansi people are the closest to the Hungarians in their language) used a brandy of wild rose roots and fly agarics to treat the pox. So useful plant!
