    When eating rosehips, make sure you take the seeds out of the insides (using your finger nail as a scraper in reverse) otherwise the tiny little hairs will get on your skin and are irritant, Go for a pee after handling rosehip seeds and you will know that you have handled them!!!!!!!

    By USING THE BACK OF YOUR NAIL AND PUSHING THE SEEDS OUT, the hairs cant irritate your nail!!!!!!.........and then easily wiped off your nail using a leaf or something else close by!
