Infused Rose Oil Lotion Bars

This rose lotion bar is absolutely luxurious

This wonderful infused rose oil lotion bar contains two types of rose oil. The first type it contains is Rosehip seed oil. It’s full of nourishment for the skin. There is a second rose oil. It is by adding almond oil that has been infused with rose petals.

This lotion bar contains shea butter which penetrates deeply into the skin. It has amazing rich healing properties. If you have never used straight shea butter, it might seem very heavy the first time you open a jar. It’s wonderful once its been softened and mixed into a blend of other oils.

Rose Oil infused lotion bar

Lotion bars are made from deep healing oils

Just place a bar into a small closed container and it’s ready to go. Lotion bars are great for travel as they are one less think to worry about leaking into your packed belongings.

This recipe has almond oil that has been infused with rose petals. Check out my post on drying rose petals to see how I made my oil.

The Rose infused Almond Oil adds additional skin nourishment to this recipe. If you don’t have the time or rose petals to infuse your oil, straight almond oil would work just fine.

Oils & Butters

This is my DIY double boiler. I only use glass for this type of project if it’s a small batch project. Something that won’t require sitting in hot water for a long period of time. On a larger batch that requires more heat, a small stainless steel bowl is a better option.

The image shows my shea butter, madder root powder and beeswax in my measuring cup ready to melt. As you can see, I had beeswax beads instead of pellets. Use whatever you have. It will all melt down the same. You can even grate beeswax off a bar. Although, I can tell you that grating a bar of beeswax was more difficult than it looked. Just don’t expect it to grate like cheese. It’s a very hard substance.

Slowly Melt your oils

You will be mixing the remaining ingredients together. Pick out a small silicone mold to use for your lotion bar. You can make these any size you like although I think small is best for this product.

To put good use to your extra shea butter, you may also be interested in trying my cocoa/peppermint lotion bars or whipped body butter.

I suggest leaving your extra bars in the refrigerator during the warm summer months depending on how hot your house becomes. Then again in the cold months, you may need to hold this bar in your hand to warm it up before use.

Infused Rose Oil Lotion Bars

I finally put my almond oil infused with rose petals to use. I love the way these lotion bars turned out. Remember this recipe next time you want to want to make a lovely personal gift.

Equipment

  • Double Boiler
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Small Silicone Mold

Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup Rose Infused Almond Oil
  • ¼ Cup Shea Butter
  • ¼ Cup Beeswax pellets or beads
  • 1 Tsp Rosehip Seed Oil
  • ½ Tsp Vitamin E Oil
  • ¼ Tsp Madder Root Powder
  • 3 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 3 Drops Geranium Essential Oil

Instructions

  • Melt the Shea Butter and Beeswax in a double boiler. If you're using Madder Root Powder, add this into the melting process. It will help the powder release it's soft pink color.
  • After everything is melted, turn off heat but keep your oil container inside the hot water.
  • In a separate container, add together Almond infused Rose Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Vitamin E Oil, and Essential Oils.
  • Add both containers together by pouring the Almond Oil batch into the warmer Shea Butter mixture.
  • Mix well and pour into a silicone mold. You may need to place your container back in hot water and remelt your oils during your pour. The wax will start to harden these bars quickly.
  • Place in the refrigerator and let bars cool completely before removing them from the mold.

Notes

This recipe can easily be doubled.
The madder root added the pretty pink color but it’s not necessary.
