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.)

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.

How to Get Rid of Your Farmer’s Tan (Using Sunless Tanner)

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

I promise this isn’t some spammy magazine article. It just sort of looks like one. But seriously. This really is what happened when I used sunless tanner on my boyfriend to cover up his farmer’s tan.

Do you have a farmer's tan? Then you must read this article on how to hide your farmer's tan. Learn how I tackled my boyfriend's farmer's tan using a sunless tanner - and what the results were like a week later. Plus tips for using sunless tanners and natural ways to give your skin that summer kiss of bronze without using a sunless tanning product with DHA.

Sunless tanners sort of terrify me. The last time I used a sunless tanner was toward the end of the 80’s. I distinctly remember being very very orange by the end. And of course the tops of my toes and my knees and elbows were uncomfortably darker than the rest of my body. For these reasons I have avoided sunless tanners like the plague ever since.

Last month I received a deluxe sample of St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse in my allure beauty box. Basically a sunless tanner in a pump bottle. Much thinner than a hair mousse, this sunless tanner goes on clear. The formula is supposed to allow you to be able to dress immediately after application. However I found that this product was still slightly tacky to the touch for about a half hour after applying.

Reviews for the St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse agree that this sunless tanner gives you a natural looking tan. Nothing too dark. Just more of a subtle glow. While subsequent applications build color for darker looking skin.

Still, as a Gen-exer who’s survived big hair, orange skin and what is probably the worst fashion decade ever – I was still hesitant to give this sunless tanner a try. So I turned my boyfriend (who is incredibly WONDERFUL btw) into a guinea pig.

My boyfriend often works outside for this job. As a result, he’s developed quite the wicked farmer’s tan. If you’ve ever had a serious farmer’s tan, then you know there’s not coming back from it. At least not until the middle of winter with three feet of snow on the ground.

So, as Greg (the BF) has zero plans for going shirtless this summer, I decided to try out this sunless tanner on this chest. That way, if this sunless tanner turned his skin orange AF, he and I were going to be the only two people to see it.

This Is What Happened When I Used Sunless Tanner - On My Boyfriend! I promise this isn't some spammy magazine article. It just sort of looks like one. But seriously. This really is what happened when I used sunless tanner on my boyfriend.

Here is the before photo. Greg was adamant that I hid his face. Not because he’s self conscious, but because he’s a ghost on social media. He’s the kind of guy who enjoys private moments, well – privately. (I know. He’s already wondering WTF he’s gotten himself into.) Therefore, in this photo he has a frowny face. After all, his chest is white AF compared to his face, neck and arms.

My Review of St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse

After the first application Greg no longer glowed in the dark. However, there also wasn’t really a drastic change. Nothing was orange though, which was awesome. So the next day we decided to try it again.

By the third application, Greg’s fake tan darkened considerably. And it definitely looked more natural than I had imagined it would. (Thus the super happy face!)

And a side by side comparison. The lighting is unfortunately different. Not because I lacked the foresight to take photos at the same time each day, but because it’s been like Seattle in Southwestern Virginia lately. The rain just never stops. (Also I lacked the foresight to take photos at the same time each day.)

The results of this sunless tanner were pretty impressive at tackling Greg’s farmer’s tan. Especially when you compare them to what I had to work with over twenty years ago. You do, however, have to be really careful about applying it. Because you can’t see this tanner once you put it on, you won’t know if you botched your application until after the fact.

This Is What Happened When I Used Sunless Tanner - On My Boyfriend! I promise this isn't some spammy magazine article. It just sort of looks like one. But seriously. This really is what happened when I used sunless tanner on my boyfriend.

Here’s a photo where I had grabbed Greg’s arm, after the product had dried, but before I’d had a chance to wash my hands. (Oh no!)

We also found that the color started to lighten within a few days. By the end of the week, Greg’s chest looked nothing like the after photo. And the sunless tanner became uneven as it faded. The parts of Greg’s chest that had hair stayed darker than the other parts of his chest. So it almost looked like he had rolled around in dirt.

All in all, though, I think that the St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse is a decent product. While it’s not something I would probably ever use, it is perfect for hiding a farmer’s tan. I think this product would be great summer events or weddings that require something like a strapless dress.

Organic sugar scrub. This moisturizing body polish contains a luxurious combination of sunflower oil, shea butter and authentic monoi de tahiti oil blended together into a nourishing emulsion that resurfaces dry skin. Formulated using organic sugar, this natural body scrub gently removes dead skin and impurities. It also helps skin to attract & retain moisture, while revealing a smooth, dewy glow.

Tips for Using A Sunless Tanner

1. Exfoliate.

If you’re planning to use a sunless tanner this summer, then you’ll want to be sure to exfoliate first. This helps to ensure an even looking tan. Otherwise self tanning products tend to look blotchy and will fade unevenly. You can easily make your own custom body scrubs. Or you may like this organic sugar scrub (pictured above) from BK Apothecary.

Formulated using organic sugar, this natural body scrub gently removes dead skin and impurities. It also helps skin to attract and retain moisture, while revealing a smooth, dewy glow. (Buy it here.)

2. Moisturize.

After exfoliating your skin in the shower, be sure to apply a moisturizer. You’ll want to apply an oil free, fragrance free moisturizer on your hands as well as on the backs of your heels and on knees and elbows. The skin on these parts of your body tend to be drier than the rest of your skin.

Because dry areas of skin tend to absorb more pigment, applying a moisturizer beforehand will help your sunless tanner look natural and even. When applying a sunless tanning product, you’ll also want to skip these areas every other application for a more natural look.

Natural Self Tanning Lotion. If you find that sunless tanners dry out your skin, opt for a natural self tanning product. Essenu's Steal A Tan™ Dark Indoor Sunless Tanning Lotion not only contains natural tanning boosters, it also contains naturally moisturizing shea and cocoa butters as well as aloe vera and green tea. It's also formulated with marine elastin and caffeine extract to help to tighten and tone your skin for a smooth, beautiful tan.

It’s also formulated with marine elastin and caffeine extract to help to tighten and tone your skin for a smooth, beautiful tan. (Buy it here.)

3. Apply in a cool, dry location.

Additionally, always apply your sunless tanner in a cool, dry area. You definitely don’t want to be a perspiring mess when using a self tanning product. Dead skin cells along with sweat, dirt and oil can cause streaking. This is because dirt and sweat form a barrier between your skin and your sunless tanner preventing an even application. So steer clear of that steamy bathroom and opt for an A/C vent instead.

4. Dust on powder where you tend to sweat.

You may also want to dust the insides of your elbows, armpits, the backs of your knees and, um, under your boobs (Hello?! AMIRITE?) with arrowroot powder once your sunless tanner dries. A talc free alternative to baby powder, arrowroot powder helps to prevent creasing or sweating while the product develops. And, of course, once you’ve done the deed, be sure to wait at least four hours before getting wet to avoid streaking or partially washing off the product.

Are DHA Sunless Tanners Safe?

Though FDA has approved DHA, a “natural” sunless tanning agent as safe for cosmetic use, there is some controversy surrounding this ingredient.

DHA, or dihydroxyacetone, is a chemical derived from beet or cane sugar. Restricted to topical use only, “DHA works by reacting to the amino acids present in the top layer of the skin, the dead cells of the stratum corneum, to create a browning effect.” (Source.) It’s generally believed that DHA is safe to use as a tanning agent as long as you avoid inhaling the product. You should also avoid applying your self tanning product to mucous membranes.

If inhaled, or applied to unapproved areas of the body, DHA has the potential to cause asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or cancer. For this reason, spray tans containing DHA are not recommended. Additionally, even with the topical application of a DHA tanning product, there is a risk of an allergic reaction that can lead to itching or even hives.

Natural Coffee Sunless Tanner. Holly + Nectar sells a Summer Daze Sunless Tanner that's DHA free. This natural coffee sunless tanner is all natural, vegan, and super moisturizing. Free of harsh chemicals, this natural streak free sunless tanner instead uses a blend of nutrient rich oils and coffee that revitalize skin, add moisture, and give your skin a healthy looking tan.

DHA Free “Tanning” Alternatives

There are other options if you’d like a sunless tanning product that offers a golden glow without DHA. Holly + Nectar sells a Summer Daze Sunless Tanner (pictured above) that’s DHA free. This natural coffee sunless tanner is all natural, vegan, and super moisturizing. Free of harsh chemicals, this natural streak free sunless tanner instead uses a blend of nutrient rich oils and coffee that revitalize skin, add moisture, and give your skin a healthy looking tan.

As if that wasn’t enough, the bonus is the scent! There’s none of the chemical smell that comes with self tanning products that contain DHA. Instead, this natural hazelnut sunless tanner smells like hazelnut and espresso. And, it won’t clog pores! (Buy it here.)

BK Apothecary's Goddess Glow Body Oil & Bronzer. This ultra hydrating, shimmering body lotion contains a blend of bronze and gold micas to give you a natural, sun-kissed glow. More of a gel than a true oil thanks to the addition of cera bellina wax, this captivating formula is easily absorbed and is satiny-smooth. This product is perfect for temporarily bronzing your skin.

My roommate’s house is heavily wooded in the backyard. As a result, a multitude of strange insects, not to mention bird poop, tend to drop from the trees. So my car is often covered in odd looking spiders with turquoise pedipalps and slimy looking larvae. Don’t even get me started on the tree sperm. (Er, pollen.) There’s simply no escaping it.

Yesterday evening I walked back into the house after taking my dog, Jasper outside. I then retired to my bedroom to watch television with my boyfriend, Greg, after dinner. It didn’t take long to discover a black segmented insect of some sort crawling on me. My immediate reaction was to jump up and down and frantically brush off my body and clothing to rid myself of whatever this bug was.

Greg laughed at me and told me he really enjoyed my dance. But, he stated, “You would never survive in the deep South.” This then led into a less than favorable discussion about palmetto bugs – which are fricking huge flying cockroaches! – and the like. Unknown or simply gross insects are kind of my kryptonite. If they have the ability to spike my anxiety, or even worse, bite and potentially poison me, I want it gone as soon as possible.

The same can be said for toxic skin care products. It wasn’t that long ago that Johnson & Johnson lost a lawsuit claiming that their talc based baby powder caused cervical cancer. It was ruled that there was a link between talc and cancer in a court case involving 63-year-old Eva Echeverria. She later died of cervical cancer on Sept. 20, 2017. This ruling – and the award – was later overturned. However it does raise questions about potentially harmful skin care and beauty products. And whether or not we can trust the companies selling us these products.

As we discover more about the cancer causing and potentially toxic ingredients that the beauty industry has been putting in our beauty and skin care products over the years, it’s no wonder there’s a shift toward holistic skin care. With the average lifespan for women lengthening and the cost of healthcare rising, who can afford to get sick? (The cost for treating cervical cancer can run as much as $82,324 for just the first year of treatment!)

Luckily there’s been a shift in the skin care and cosmetics industry here in the United States towards more natural beauty products. A lot of these natural skin care products tend to be more expensive than their synthetic alternatives however. But you don’t have to pay a high prices tag for your health where beauty and skin care is involved. You can make your own easy holistic beauty & skin care recipes at home.
