Is the juice of boiled roses good for diabetics?

I haven’t heard of roses used in this way. Medicinally, the rose hip is used for its high vitamin C content, rose oil is used externally for skin problems and the dried petals are used in teas to strengthen the liver, heart and stomach, nourish the nervous system and enhance the immune system. To make the tea, Infuse the petals in water that is just off the boil.
