Inspired by Nourish Organic’s Rejuvenating Rose Butter, my rose body butter recipe contains refined shea butter and coconut oil, rosehip seed and sunflower oil, and natural rose kaolin clay. I also added a touch of frankincense essential oil for a light scent and for frankincense’s valuable astringent properties when used in skin care applications.

Because frankincense can help to protect skin cells, it’s useful in preventing acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, and wrinkles. It’s also believed to help lift and tighten skin which can deter the signs of aging.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, my rose body butter recipe also absorbs quickly so you can get on with your day without leaving oily marks everywhere you go!

Which frankincense essential oil should I use?

There are four main types of frankincense. They are Boswellia Serrata, Boswellia FrereanaBoswellia Carteri and Boswellia Papyrifera. For this application, I’ll be discussing the differences between Boswellia Serrata, Boswellia Frereana, and Boswellia Carteri essential oils.

Frankincense (Boswellia Serrata) essential oil is the oldest documented Frankincense and is believed to have been used in both Ayurvedic medicine and as the frankincense mentioned in the Bible. It contains high amounts of alpha thujene, alpha pinene, and limonene which give it strong antiseptic, decongestant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has a sweeter and more delicate fragrance than the other frankincense varieties with top terpenic-pine notes and costs less as it yields a higher amount of essential oil.

Frankincense (Boswellia Frereana) essential oil, which is grown at a higher altitude, contains high amounts pinene, thujene, and cymene. These natural constituents yield strong anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antispasmodic, and analgesic (pain relieving) properties making it especially suitable for inflammation caused by arthritis, swelling, and allergies. This type of frankincense has strong citrus-lemon top notes with an earthy, resinous heart.

And finally, Frankincense (Boswellia Carteri) essential oil is the most well known of all the frankincense varieties. It has the smooth, richa aroma that people are most familiar with when they think of frankincense. Frankincense (Boswellia Carteri) essential oil contains high concentrations of alpha pinene, and other monoterpenes making it useful both in skin care and aromatherapy applications. When used in skin care applications it can help to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars. When inhaled it is particularly beneficial at fighting the effects from acute colds and asthma.

I used Frankincense (Boswellia Serrata) essential oil for my rose body butter recipe, however, you can use whichever frankincense essential oil you prefer for this application.

Natural Rose Body Butter Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

3 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. refined coconut oil
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.25 oz. sunflower or sweet almond oil
.1 oz. arrowroot powder
.05 oz. rose kaolin clay
2 mL frankincense essential oil (of choice)
3-5 drops vitamin E oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the all of the ingredients for my rose body butter recipe except for the frankincense essential oil and the vitamin E oil. For the frankincense essential oil you’ll need to measure out the amount called for in the recipe with a graduated plastic transfer pipette.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter and coconut oil. Combine in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar and heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted. Alternately, you can also use a double boiler.

Now weigh out the arrowroot powder and whisk into the melted shea butter and coconut oil.

Next, weigh the rosehip seed and sunflower oils and stir into the body butter mixture.

Add a few drops of Vitamin E followed by the frankincense essential oil.

Finally, weigh out and add the rose kaolin clay.

Mix well, then set the body butter in the refrigerator briefly. As the clay will want to sink to the bottom, you’ll need to cool the body butter down in order to evenly distribute the clay.

Once the body butter starts to thicken, remove it from the refrigerator and remix until the clay stays evenly distributed throughout the body butter and no longer sinks to the bottom.

Pour the body butter evenly into two 2 oz. straight sided amber glass jars with black phenolic lined caps. (I got mine from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Looking for a vegan friendly moisturizer DIY? This rose body butter recipe fits the bill! Made with only natural ingredients, this rose body butter nourishes skin without leaving it feeling greasy.

Once your natural rose body butter has completely solidified, screw on the caps and label as desired for personal use or gifting. You can find free printable labels for my natural rose body butter recipe here. Simply print the PDF onto a full size sticker or label sheet and cut out the labels.

To use, simply massage a small amount of the body butter onto your skin as desired and wait for it to absorb completely. I personally love this on my hands!

Substitutions?

If you are allergic to coconut oil then you may substitute the coconut oil with babassu oil. Babassu oil is very similar to coconut oil with just a slightly higher melting point. (Learn more about babassu oil here.)

It is also important to note that my rose body butter recipe yields a very soft body butter. If you live in a particularly warm climate in which coconut oil will not stay solidified for you, then I suggest adding a small amount of emulsifying wax to this recipe. I’d start with around .25 oz.

If you actually want your rose body butter to smell like roses, substitute the frankincense essential oil with 1 mL of rose absolute.

Want to sell this product?

If you plan to sell your rose body butters, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

DIY After Sun Moisturizers to Soothe Sunburned Skin

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

Well, spring is here and it’s in full force. I got sunburned on my neck and collarbone yesterday simply driving the car with the windows down! Luckily I had sunscreen on my face but it was an important reminder that we should be applying sunscreen to our décolletage as well.

DIY After Sun Moisturizers to help soothe sunburned skin and promote healing.

Of course, there are times we do forgot sunscreen. Or we didn’t apply it often enough. Or it wasn’t strong enough. So here are three DIY After Sun Moisturizers to help soothe sunburned skin and promote healing.

3 DIY After Sun Moisturizers

This natural burn relief spray recipe was created for a friend with breast cancer to help soothe the pain caused by radiation treatment and promote healing. However, you'll find this burn relief spray also works great on run of the mill sunburns.

Natural Eczema Treatment for Real Relief from Eczema & Dry Skin

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

If you’ve ever suffered from eczema then you understand how awful it can be. Finding relief from over-the-counter topical eczema treatments, however, can be a challenge. Often times, I’ve found, these products make my eczema worse. This natural eczema treatment is different.

Natural Eczema Treatment for Real Relief from Eczema & Dry Skin. This natural eczema treatment knocks over-the-counter eczema creams out of the water. Formulated using only natural ingredients that offer relief of inflammation, itching and dryness, my natural eczema relief balm recipe offers real relief for your eczema or dry skin - with or without essential oils. Learn how to make an eczema repair balm recipe now an eczema remedy that really works! #eczema

Formulated using only natural ingredients known for their ability to help relieve inflammation, itching and dryness, my natural eczema relief balm offers real relief for your eczema or dry skin – with or without essential oils.

The struggle to find a natural eczema treatment that works.

You may remember my anti-aging serum recipe I shared two weeks ago. The carrier oils used in that serum are also incorporated into my natural eczema treatment. So if you’re looking for more ways to use those ingredients, this natural eczema relief balm is the perfect recipe!

While I’ve been lucky and haven’t struggled with eczema since eliminating most dairy products from my diet, not all of us are able to escape our eczema through diet alone. In fact, my dear friend Cathy, recently had her eczema flare up so badly, she ended up with open wounds from scratching. And, like most of us, she went through an array of over-the-counter eczema treatment products. None of which actually offered any relief from her symptoms. A few of them, in fact, actually made her skin burn. While others made the itching worse.

As I had plans to meet up with Cathy for Wine & Art Wednesday, I quickly threw together a natural eczema remedy for her irritated skin. My natural eczema relief balm worked fabulously on Cathy’s eczema. While the anti-aging serum (sans the essential oils) I also created the same day, did wonders for the eczema on her face.

Crafting a natural eczema relief balm recipe.

Since making my natural eczema treatment for Cathy, I’ve revised my natural eczema relief balm recipe three more times. The recipe I’m presenting you with today, is the result of those changes. This natural eczema remedy has the consistency of a rich, creamy beauty balm. It fully absorbs into skin after about a minute or so. In addition to soothing itchy and inflamed skin, it also moisturizes and protects skin while still allowing skin to breathe.

I formulated my natural eczema treatment with essential oils. However, if fragrances or essential oils irritate your eczema, you can simply omit them from my natural eczema relief balm recipe. The remainder of my eczema repair balm is made up of other primarily plant based, natural ingredients with the exception of lanolin and beeswax. These ingredients include skin conditioning shea butter and murumuru butter as well as rosehip seed, moringa seed and borage carrier oils. 100% vitamin E oil is also added for its ability to promote healing.

About the ingredients in my natural eczema treatment.

Every ingredient used for my natural eczema relief balm was chosen with care for its ability to remedy eczema. Following are details on the skin care benefits of some of these ingredients.

Borage Oil

Borage oil is one of the key ingredients in my natural eczema relief balm much like my anti-aging serum. It offers a variety of natural skin care benefits especially for those who suffer from acne, eczema, skin reddening and rosacea. This natural oil is suitable for even the most sensitive skin and is a superior moisturizer. A common treatment for dry skin and cradle cap, borage oil helps fight skin inflammation and dryness to promote skin health. (Learn more about borage oil here.)

Moringa Seed Oil

A nutrient dense carrier oil, moringa seed oil is another prize ingredient for my natural eczema treatment. Like borage oil, it has anti-inflammatory properties when used in skin care. While naturally occurring antioxidants help promote cellular turnover for healthy looking skin. Its incredible moisturizing properties help to hydrate maturing skin as well as ease the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. (Discover more ways moringa seed oil is commonly used here.)

Murumuru Butter

Murumuru butter, similar to the carrier oils used in my natural eczema treatment, is also rich in essential fatty acids. It also contain pro-vitamin A. This makes this natural butter a popular product in anti-aging skin care formulations. In addition to its moisturizing properties, murumuru butter promotes moisture retention making it an especially useful addition when used for dry skin and eczema remedies. (Learn how to make a murumuru sugar scrub recipe for eczema and dry skin here.)

Manuka Essential oil

Manuka essential oil, like manuka honey, comes from the leaves of the popular New Zealand plant by the same name. This essential oil is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing, making it suitable for all skin types. This also means it won’t irritate eczema prone skin. Like the other ingredients in my natural eczema relief balm recipe, this essential oil is also anti-inflammatory. It is commonly used to offer relief for itchy skin and dandruff, rashes and common skin diseases. (Learn more about manuka essential oil, and how to make a natural manuka deodorant recipe, here.)

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this natural eczema treatment.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter, emulsifying wax, murumuru butter, lanolin and beeswax. Combine the ingredients in a double boiler and heat over medium low heat until all the ingredients have melted.

Turn off the heat. Then weigh out the rosehip seed oil, borage oil and moringa seed oil. Stir into the melted butters, waxes and lanolin. Now remove the ingredients from heat.

I used a combination of 2 oz. glass amber jars and 1 oz. white polypropylene thick wall plastic jars.

Allow your natural eczema relief balm to cool completely. Once it has solidified, screw the caps onto your containers.

Usage:

To use your natural eczema treatment, simply massage onto affected area as desired. Allow the balm to sink in. (This may take a minute or two.) Then reapply as needed throughout the day.

Wet wrap therapy for moderate to severe eczema.

For really bad eczema, I also recommend using this natural eczema relief balm in conjunction with wet wrap therapy. Wet wrap therapy is another natural eczema treatment for moderate to severe eczema.

Eczema wet wrap therapy creates a physical moist barrier for your skin. When used in conjunction with an eczema relief balm or cream, it helps the moisturizer penetrate skin more deeply. This natural eczema treatment can significantly improve your skin’s condition in as few as two days. Learn more about wet wrap therapy for your eczema, along with instructions, here.
