Description

Rose Infused Oil

For a slower, more traditional infusion: Cap the jar of dried rose petals and oil and tuck away in a cabinet for around 4 to 6 weeks, shaking occasionally as you remember to. When the infusing time has passed, strain.

For an easy option: You could also place the jar of dried rose petals and oil in a sunny windowsill for several days to a week to jump-start the infusion. (Don’t store for long periods in sunlight though, as it tends to fade flowers and herbs over time.)

Rose Lotion Bars

  • 1/4 cup (52 g) rose-infused oil
  • 1/4 cup (28 g) beeswax
  • 1/4 cup (44 g) shea, mango or cocoa butter
  • a few drops of geranium (or rose) essential oil

How to Make Rose Lotion Bars

  1. Weigh the infused oil, shea butter and beeswax into a small canning jar or upcycled tin can.
  2. Set the jar in a saucepan containing a few inches of water, forming a makeshift double boiler.
  3. Heat over medium-low heat, until the beeswax and butter have melted.
  4. Once melted, remove the jar from the saucepan.
  5. Cool for two minutes, then stir in the essential oil.
  6. Pour the melted lotion bar mixture into small silicone or heatproof  molds and let cool until solid.

Rose Petal Salve

  • 100 g of rose petal infused oil
  • 14 g rosehip seed oil
  • 14 g of beeswax pastilles
  • optional: several drops of rose essential oil (or you can use rose geranium for a less expensive, but still rosy smelling option)

Ingredients are measured by weight.

Add the rose petal-infused oil and beeswax pastilles into a heat-proof container. (Rosehip seed oil is heat sensitive, so that will be added later.)

Set it down into a pan containing several inches of water (just like when infusing rose petal oil.)

Gently bring the temperature up to medium-lowish heat and let the container stay in the makeshift double boiler until the wax is melted.

Remove from heat and stir in the rosehip seed oil.

Carefully pour into tins or jars then let sit until firm.

Natural Rose Milk Bath Bombs

Yields: 4 large heart shaped bath bombs

  • 2 cups (536g)bicarbonate of  soda
  • 1 cup (227 g) citric acid
  • 1 tsp rose clay
  • 1 tablespoon (7 g) milk powder (cow, goat or coconut)
  •  1/4 cup  cocoa butter
  • dried rose petals, optional
  • 5 drops each geranium, clary sage & lavender essential oils, optional for light scent
  • heart shaped bath bomb mold
  • witch hazel in a small spray bottle

How to Make the Bath Bombs

Stir the baking soda, citric acid, rose clay and milk powder together, making sure to work out any clumps with your fingers, as needed.

Melt the cocoa butter and stir into the dry mixture, along with essential oils

If incorporating rose petals (optional):

Grind the rose petals in a coffee grinder to a powder and sprinkle a small amount in the mold.

Spritz the bath bomb mixture with witch hazel and mix well with your hands.

A common cause of bath bomb failure is using too much liquid at this stage. Humid weather can also cause issues.

During humid summer weather, I may only need 6 or 8 spritzes for this recipe. Start out with just a few spritzes and add more, if needed, as you go.

When the mixture is just right, try making a test ball with your hands and see how it holds. If it doesn’t want to stick together, add a tiny bit more witch hazel.

Pack the mixture into half of the mold, pressing lightly as you go, until it’s somewhat overfull.

Next, fill the other half of the mold, until packed lightly and slightly overfilled.

Press the two halves together, cleaning out any extra bits that squeeze out from the edges with your fingers. Try not to twist the mold as you do this, as that can break the bond between the two halves.

If the two sides don’t want to stick together, try scooping the mixture back out of the mold and add one to two more spritzes of witch hazel before trying again.

Remove one side of the mold and make sure it holds together. It will be less fragile to handle once it’s completely dried.

Place the bath bombs on a towel to dry and completely harden for 24 hours.

    Good day,
    As explained in our communications our rose petals are not bright red but shades of pink as illustrated on our website and are dried not fresh and therefore are fragile.
    Please read our returns policy on your invoice and on our website. “please read before you purchase” tab as we can not refund or exchange due to hygienic reasons.
