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!

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.

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!

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.

DIY Rose Sugar Scrub

Ingredients:

27 oz. white granulated sugar
9 oz. safflower oil
.45 oz. rose fragrance oil, of choice or 25 drops of rose absolute
dried red roses or dried whole rosebuds, to suit

Instructions:

To make this DIY rose sugar scrub, begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the sugar.

Next, add rose petals to suit, mixing them in with the sugar until they evenly distributed.

In a separate container, weigh out the safflower oil.

If using a fragrance oil, weigh out the fragrance and mix it into the safflower oil. (You can also any other skin safe fragrance oil that you’d like.) If you’re using rose absolute, add 25 drops instead. Rose absolute is pretty potent, so a little will go a long way.

Now pour the sugar and rose mixture into the scented oil and mix thoroughly.

Evenly fill three 8 oz. jars with your rose sugar scrub. I used the 8 oz.Black PET PCR Jars with Black Smooth Lined Caps from SKS Bottle & Packaging specifically for this project. You can find them here.

Feather Clipart from Huckleberry Hearts

All that’s left is to label for jars for gifting! For my labels I purchased feather clipart from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy, then used a Word program to create my labels. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.) Then simply print your newly created labels onto label sheets – I get mine from World Label – and apply to your jars.

If you’re making your DIY rose sugar scrub to sell (for small commercial use) and want to use the same clipart as I have but without credit, you would need to purchase a commercial license from the creator.

You’ll also want to make sure you label your rose sugar scrubs appropriately to meet state and federal laws. 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.

Natural DIY Homemade Chocolate and Rose Hand and Body Cream Recipe - Luxurious Mother's Day Gift Idea

I know, here I am talking about chocolates and roses and Valentine’s Day has already come and gone. But I’m not talking about those chocolate and roses. Instead I’m talking about a heavenly chocolate and rose scented hand and body cream made with moisture intense coconut oil! Not only does it smell fabulous, but it’s a hundred percent natural. I also think it’d make a faboo homemade Mother’s Day gift in the near future. Read on for how to make it!

Natural Chocolate & Rose Body Cream Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. 76 degree melt point coconut oil
1 oz. argan oil
.75 oz. beeswax
.25 oz. walnut oil
.25 oz. castor oil
20 drops cocoa absolute
10 drops rose essential oil (or a blend works too!)

Instructions:

Weigh out the beeswax using a digital kitchen scale and melt either in the microwave (in a glass pyrex measuring cup) or a double boiler. Next, weigh out the remaining oils in a separate container then stir into the melted beeswax until all ingredients have melted. Add the cocoa absolute and rosewood essential oil and stir. Allow to set up almost all of the way, then mix well to incorporate the cocoa absolute back into the cream. (It sinks to the bottom when the oils are still liquid.) Finally, spoon into a 4 oz. container or evenly into two 2 oz. containers of your choice. Use as desired on hands, feet or body.

Don’t want to use walnut oil? Oils with intense healing properties like evening primrose oil, pumpkin seed oil and rosehip seed oil make great substitutes. You can also use tamanu oil – one of my favorites! – however, as it has a strong natural scent it may affect the smell of the final product slightly.

For a slightly thicker cream, try adding 1 oz. of shea butter or .5 oz. of one of the following: cocoa, kokum or illipe butter.

This is also great on lips or even as a hair mask in a pinch.
