How to Make a Rose Body Balm
A while back I discovered 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!
How to get an affordable, natural rose fragrance.
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.
Simple natural skin care ingredients.
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
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.
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.
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.
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 oil. Learn to make it here.
