For those seeking a natural and luxurious way to pamper their skin, DIY Rose Body Butter is the perfect solution.
This easy-to-make body butter is made with soft shea butter and rose essential oil. It provides deep hydration and nourishment to the skin. Not only does it leave your skin feeling soft and silky, but it also offers a relaxing aromatherapy experience with the soothing scent of roses.
In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of creating your own DIY Rose Body Butter and explore the many benefits it has to offer for your skin.
- Soft shea butter
- Rose essential oil
- Magnolia essential oil. This is optional.
- Oil color, which is a color that dissolves in oil. I am using oil color liquid. If you have the oil color in powder form, just dissolve a little of the powder in a small quantity of sweet almond oil. You can also use mica color powder.
Note: Since we are making a rose body butter, I will use red oil color, so that when we add it to the whitish shea butter, we will end up with a rosy color that fits the product name.
- Scale to weigh quantities
- Mixing bowl
- Mixing utensil
- Container to store the rose butter final product
Steps: DIY Rose Body Butter
1- Place a bowl over the scale and measure out 200 grams of soft shea butter.
Note: If you only have hard shea butter, add 20 grams of sweet almond oil.
2- Add 4-7 drops of oil color to the contents.
3- Using a mixing utensil, thoroughly mix the color into the soft shea butter to ensure that it is combined well.
4- It is now time to add the essential oils for fragrance. Add 10 drops of the rose essential oil into the product and mix well.
5- For extra scent, I will also add 5 drops of the magnolia essential oil and mix once again. This is optional.
6- Finally, put the rose body butter in a container of your choice.
How To Use: DIY Rose Body Butter
Here are some tips on how to use your DIY Rose Body Butter:
- Start with clean, dry skin. It’s best to use the body butter after a bath or shower, when your skin is still slightly damp.
- Take a small amount of the body butter and warm it up in your palms. This will help to melt the butter and make it easier to apply.
- Massage the body butter into your skin using circular motions. Pay special attention to dry or rough areas like elbows, knees, and heels.
- Allow the body butter to absorb fully into your skin before getting dressed, as it may leave an oily residue on clothing.
- Use the body butter as often as needed to keep your skin soft, smooth, and hydrated. It’s perfect for use as a daily moisturizer, or as a luxurious treat for your skin after a long day.
