With our step-by-step guide, you can create your very own DIY Rose Body Splash, capturing the captivating essence of roses and infusing it into a refreshing and invigorating splash.

Indulge in a pampering experience and discover the refreshing power of this exquisite body splash that you can easily make at home. In this article, we will take you through the process, providing you with all the necessary instructions and ingredients to create your very own DIY Rose Body Splash.

Ingredients Needed

  • Polysorbate 80
  • Distilled water
  • Rose essential oil
  • Water-soluble color powder. Don’t use a Mica color powder, because we have water in our body splash and mica color powders don’t mix in water.
  • Vegetable glycerine

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Graduated measuring container to measure small liquid amounts, either in milliliters or in US fluid ounces
  • Stainless steel cup
  • Wooden popsicle
  • Toothpick
  • 100-milliliter spray bottle (3.5 US fluid ounces)

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

Steps: DIY Rose Body Splash

It is important to follow exactly the steps and use the indicated quantities below to ensure that your DIY Rose Body Splash succeeds.

1- Start by adding 10 milliliters (0.33 US fluid ounces) of polysorbate 80 into the cup.

3- Mix them well for 2 minutes.

4- We are using a 100-milliliter spray bottle for our DIY Rose Body Splash. Fill it with 80 milliliters (2.7 US fluid ounces) of distilled water.

5- Water-soluble color powders are strong and color quickly. This is why we will add color to the water using the tip of a toothpick. We don’t want the body splash to have a strong color. Shake the bottle to spread the color.

  • The water-soluble color powder you see in the image is orange, but it is actually yellow once mixed in the water.
  • Since this is a water-soluble color powder, you have to mix it first and separately with the water in the spray bottle. Once the water is colored, we will add it to the polysorbate 80 and essential oil mixture in the cup.

6- Slowly pour the colored distilled water over the mixture of the polysorbate 80 and essential oil, while stirring continuously.

  • The bubbles that appear on the surface while stirring will all disappear once we finish the DIY Rose Body Splash and keep it aside to settle.

How To Use: DIY Rose Body Splash

Using your homemade DIY Rose Body Splash is a delightful and refreshing experience. Follow these simple steps to enjoy its invigorating benefits:

  1. Shake it: Before each use, give your DIY Rose Body Splash a gentle shake to ensure that the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Prep your skin: Start by cleansing your skin with your favorite body wash or soap. Pat your skin dry with a towel, leaving it slightly damp.
  3. Spray or dab: There are two main ways to apply the body splash. You can either spray it directly onto your body or apply it by dabbing it onto your skin with your hands or a cotton pad. Choose the method that suits your preference.
  4. Target pulse points: Focus on applying the body splash to your pulse points, such as your wrists, neck, and behind the ears. These areas emit heat, enhancing the scent and allowing it to linger throughout the day.
  5. Lightly mist your body: For an all-over refreshing experience, lightly mist your body with the DIY Rose Body Splash. Hold the bottle a few inches away from your skin and spray it evenly, allowing the mist to settle on your body.
  6. Allow it to dry: After applying the body splash, give it a few moments to dry naturally on your skin. This will help the fragrance to fully develop and ensure that it lasts longer.
  7. Reapply as desired: If you want to intensify the scent or refresh it later in the day, feel free to reapply the body splash whenever you wish.

Now, take a deep breath and enjoy the captivating aroma of the DIY Rose Body Splash as it embraces your senses, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and confident throughout the day.
