Tools needed:

How to Make a Natural Rose Body Butter

Double boiler, rubber spatula, sterilized pin, Mixer and mixing bowl (I prefer to use a mix master, but a hand held is fine to use), a spoon or wooden chopstick, teaspoons, 1 sterilized ½ cup (100 ml) jar, label and marker.

Ingredients:

7 tsp Shea butter
12 tsp Wild Rose infused oil
4 tsp grated beeswax
1 Vitamin E capsule (400 UI)
5-10 drops of essential oil (optional)

Make sure your work space and equipment is clean and sterilized. Measure the Shea butter, infused oil and beeswax into the double boiler. Place on medium heat and let melt. The beeswax will be the last to melt. Remove from heat after the Shea butter has melted to prevent the Shea butter from overheating and becoming grainy in the finished product. Gently using the wooden chopstick/spoon stir the mixture until the beeswax has finished melting.

Do not leave the mixture on the stove unattended or try to heat this in a regular pot directly on the stove as Shea butter is flammable and can cause a fire

Gently pour the hot mixture into the mixing bowl and place into the freezer for 3-5 minutes. Do not let it freeze, only cool to almost set. Remove and begin mixing with the mixer or hand held for 10-15 minutes. Use the rubber spatula to scrap the sides. Place back into the freezer for another 3-5 minutes. Resume beating and using a pin pop a hole in Vitamin E capsule and squeeze contents into mixture and add essential oils if you have chosen to use them.

Continue to beat until mixture forms soft peaks. Put the mixture into your sterilized jar and place in the fridge to finish setting. After a few hours you can take it out and use it. It won’t have to be stored in the fridge after this point. Label and date your jar of body butter. This Rose Body Butter should be good for six months.

Natural body butters are an excellent way to take care of your skin in a safe and natural way. Experiment with different infused oils and essential oils to make your own ‘signature’ body butter.
