What is tea seed oil?

What’s tea seed oil, you ask? Camellia (tea seed) oil is a natural plant oil derived from the seeds of the Camellia oleifera plant from which green tea comes. This carrier oil, which is used both for cooking and skin care applications, contains valuable antioxidants. Because of this, Camellia oil or tea seed oil can help both skin and hair look rejuvenated and revitalized.

And, like fractionated coconut oil, tea seed oil not only provides skin with extra hydration, but it is also quickly and easily absorbed by skin. This in turn means your skin will feel silky smooth, not greasy. Camellia seed oil can help to improve both the tone and texture of skin as well as reduce the appearance of aging.

Blueberry Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

36 oz. granulated white sugar
12 oz. refined shea butter
3.5 oz. camellia (tea) seed oil
2 oz. clear jojoba oil (or other carrier oil of choice)
2 oz. emulsifying wax
.65 oz. blueberry fragrance oil
.25 oz. flax seed powder
.15 oz. blue oil locking mica powder (or similar)
.1 oz. sparkle cosmetic glitter (or similar, optional)

Instructions:

My blueberry sugar scrub recipe yields six 8 oz. sugar scrubs. All ingredients are by weight and therefore should be weighed using a scale.

For this project I used six Amber PET Heavy Wall 8 oz. Plastic Jars with Lined Aluminum Caps. You can find these containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter and emulsifying wax into a Pyrex Prepware 8-Cup Glass Measuring Cup or similar. Heat in a microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.) Remove from heat.

Weigh out the tea seed oil and jojoba oil and stir into the melted shea butter and wax. Follow with the blueberry fragrance oil, making sure to weigh it first to get the correct amount called for in my blueberry sugar scrub recipe.

In a separate container, weigh out and combine the sugar, flax seed powder, blue mica powder and glitter. Whisk well with a fork until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. (If your tub stains easily I recommend using Polysorbate 80 to help prevent staining and/or using a lesser amount of mica powder.)

Now pour the dry mixture into the liquid ingredients. Mix well with a fork until the wet and dry ingredients are fully incorporated with one another.

Spoon or pour the blueberry sugar scrub evenly into your containers, then screw on the lids.

If you’d like to label the lids for your blueberry sugar scrubs, you can print 4 oz. container labels here or 8 oz. container labels here onto full size blank sticker paper sheets. Then simply cut out the labels using scissors, peel off the back and attach to the lids of your containers for gifting or personal use.

If you’d like to sell your finished product, then you will need to label your product according to FDA guidelines. If you are unsure about labeling laws then I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Natural Rose Body Balm Recipe with Tea Seed Oil

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires just 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using camellia tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

A while back I discovered (via Birchbox) and fell completely in love with Jurlique’s Rose Love Balm. It smells simply AMAZING and feels absolutely divine on skin. However, as I primarily used it as a hand cream, it got used up rather quickly.

When I received a recent purchase of organic Bulgarian rose floral wax, opened the container, closed my eyes and sniffed – I knew I’d found the perfect ingredient for making my own natural rose body balm!

Bulgarian rose floral wax is a wonderfully fragrant, semi-solid creamy wax derived from rose petals. This natural floral wax offers many of the same skin care benefits of Bulgarian roses including the moisturizing phospholipids. It makes a lovely addition to your own homemade creams, balms and lotions. And, because it's naturally scented, there's no need to add a separate fragrance to your products!

It makes a lovely addition to your own homemade creams, balms and lotions. And, because it’s naturally scented, there’s no need to add a separate fragrance to your products!

As this rose wax is plant derived, it is suitable for vegan skin care recipes and products. However, keep in mind this is a very soft wax. It is sort of the consistency of warm butter. Therefore you may want to include harder waxes in conjunction with the rose wax in skin care recipes that contain a high percentage of liquid carrier oils.

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

In addition to the rose floral wax, I also chose to use camellia (tea) seed oil for my natural rose body balm recipe. Like fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil is liquid at room temperature and has a long shelf life. When used in skin care applications, camellia seed oil can help to improve both the tone and texture of skin as well as reduce the appearance of aging. Camellia seed oil is also wonderful for hydration and is quickly and easily absorbed so that skin feels silky smooth, not greasy.

Following is my three ingredient natural rose body balm recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do. Not only does it smell divine, but it’s super moisturizing and non-greasy once absorbed. Plus it can be used anywhere that your skin needs a little extra love. Hands, body, feet and even lips!

Also be sure to check out my free printable labels for this project for personal use or gifting after the recipe!

Natural Rose Body Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

3 oz. refined shea butter
.15 oz. Bulgarian rose floral wax
.5 oz. camellia (tea) seed oil

Instructions:

To make my natural rose body balm recipe, you’ll begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar.

Heat the shea butter in the microwave at 50% power until melted. Alternately, you can melt the shea butter in a double boiler.

Remove from heat. Weigh out the rose floral wax and stir into the melted shea butter until all of the wax has melted.

Now weigh out the camellia seed oil and stir into the melted shea butter and wax.

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

Pour the rose body balm into your container of choice. I recommend around a 4 oz. container. I used a 100 mL wide-mouth cosmetic style screw top jar from Infinity Jars which is around 3.38 oz. It filled the jar to the very very top.

Allow your rose body balm to cool completely and resolidify before screwing on the lid. You can place your rose body balm in the refrigerator to speed up the process.

This natural rose body balm recipe is not only super luxurious, but it only requires 3 simple ingredients to make! Crafted using tea seed oil, rose wax and shea butter, this rose body balm recipe is all natural and makes a lovely homemade gift!

Once your body balm has solidified it’s ready for personal use or gifting! Simply print out the PDF for my free printable labels here onto full size blank sticker paper. Then cut out and apply the tops of your containers.

If you want to sell the natural rose body balm you made, then you will need to label your product according to FDA guidelines. If you are unsure about labeling laws then I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

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

If you like my natural rose body balm recipe, then you may also like my rose body butter recipe. While this recipe doesn’t smell like roses, it is made with rose kaolin clay and is inspired by Nourish Organic’s Rejuvenating Rose Butter. It too is a vegan friendly moisturizer and is naturally scented with frankincense essential oilLearn to make it here.

While fractionated coconut oil is often used in dry oil formulations, a lot of people with sensitive skin find coconut oil drying or irritating. Because of this, I chose to formulate my scented DIY dry oil body spray with camellia (tea) seed oil instead of coconut oil.

Like fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil is liquid at room temperature and has a long shelf life. When used in skin care applications, camellia seed oil can help to improve both the tone and texture of skin as well as reduce the appearance of aging. Camellia seed oil is also wonderful for hydration and is quickly and easily absorbed so that skin feels silky smooth, not greasy.

This DIY dry oil body spray is super easy to make and it’s perfect to gift for Mother’s Day. I’ve even included printable labels to make gifting even easier! Keep reading for the recipe to make this wonderful, silky & hydrating DIY dry oil body spray as well as for a link to download the printable PDF labels!

Scented DIY Dry Oil Body Spray

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. camellia seed oil
.75 oz. rosehip seed oil
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.1 oz. babassu oil
.1 oz. skin safe fragrance oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my DIY dry oil body spray. In addition, you will also need two 2 oz. amber PET Boston round bottle with a smooth black fine mist sprayer. You can find the same bottles with sprayers that I used at SKS Bottle & Packaging.

If you have leftover tea infused camellia seed oil from my coffee & black tea under eye cream recipe, you can use that in place of regular camellia seed oil.

To create your DIY dry body oil spray, begin by weighing out all of the ingredients into a glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar.

Mix well to combine.

This scented DIY dry oil body spray for dry skin is made with natural "dry" oils that won't leave your skin feeling greasy but still nourish and moisturize skin in need. The addition of a fragrance means you can wear your favorite scent while still caring for your skin!

Then, using a small funnel, evenly fill both containers with the dry oil body spray.

Cap the lids on tightly, then download the labels for your DIY dry oil body spray here.

Print the labels onto a full size label sheet. Then cut out the labels individually and apply to your bottles. (If you’d like die-cut sticker labels that don’t require any cutting, I recommend checking out the label options at StickerYou. StickerYou allows you to custom design your own labels, that they then print and cut for you to save time!)

That’s it! Your scented DIY dry oil body spray is now ready for personal use or gifting! To use, simply spray onto clean skin and massage in.

Alternately, if you plan to sell your coffee & black tea under eye cream, 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.
