1 pint sized mason jar

• A food processor for shredding the dried rose petals (optional: using a mortar and pestle will do too, it’s just a lot more work)
• 1 cup of dried rose petals
• 2 cups of white sugar (use organic sugar so the scrub has a darker color)
• 2/3 cup of carrier oil ( use fractionated coconut oil but if you don’t want the scrub to have a coconut undertone, use something like sweet almond oil or another favorite carrier oil)
• 5-10 drops rose otto or geranium (or 3-5 drops of rose absolute)


Loving Preparation – Rose Petal Body Scrub

  • To begin, add the 1 cup of rose petals to a food processor and pulse until they become small flakes. If you don’t process the rose petals, they will prevent your shower or bath from draining so strictly don’t recommend using whole petals.
  • Next, add the processed petals to a large mixing bowl and add in the 2 cups of sugar and mix.
  • In the smaller mixing bowl, add the carrier oil and essential oils. Mix well. Feel free to add more drops of essential oil to meet the strength you’re looking for.
  • Pour the carrier oil/essential oil mixture over the rose petal/sugar mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Take a small amount and test it on the back of your hand with a small amount of water. If you like the texture and smell strength, the scrub is ready to go!
  • If you would like an oilier mixture, now is the time to add more carrier oil until you find the balance you’re looking for. This goes for wanting a drier mixture, just add more sugar.
  • Fill the mason jar with the scrub and cap closed.
  • Label the jar however you like for the one you love!

Rose Body Butter Scrub

This Carrot Seed and Rose Body Butter can be made in about 5-10 minutes and you only need 4 ingredients. It will last about a month, but if you’re anything like me, it will gone in less than a week.

4 oz of coconut oil
• 1/4 teaspoon of sea buckthorn oil
• 5 drops of carrot seed essential oil
• 5 drops of rose essential oil – note: look for ‘rose absolute’ that is only lightly diluted in carrier oils

• Mixing bowl
• 4 oz mason jar


Step 1. Coconut oil consistency

  • The first step is to look at the consistency of the coconut oil. We’re just on the tail end of summer, so your coconut oil might be more on the melty side. To make the consistency solid quickly, fill the 4 oz mason jar with the oil and pop it in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
  • If you’re starting out with coconut that is already hard as a rock, place the jar in a pot of hot water so it can soften. It should still look white and a bit hard when it’s ready, but you should be able to easily stick a knife or a fork in it.

Step 2. Mixing

  • Transfer the coconut oil to a mixing bowl and simply mix it with a fork or a spoon. For me a fork works best. At this point, you’re whipping the oil into a butter, so it should be pretty soft and easy to mix. If it’s still too hard, just let it sit out for a bit longer.

Step 3. Sea Buckthorn oil

  • Once the oil has the consistency of a body butter, add the sea buckthorn oil to give it that beautiful amber color. Sea buckthorn oil is orange and a little goes a long way! This oil is also renowned for it’s anti-aging properties and essential fatty acids.

Step 4. Essential oils

  • Lastly, add the carrot seed and rose essential oils and mix again.

Step 5. Storage

  • Transfer the butter back to the mason jar and store in a cool dry place when not in use or in the fridge during the warmer seasons.

Step 6. Usage

  • Use after a shower or bath on semi damp skin.
