DIY Rose Oil: Recipe To Make It At Home

Everyone gets crazy for roses because of its undoubtedly pleasant fragrance. But, whenever used topically it also provides ultimate benefits to our skin.

I like to use roses in my beauty regime through multiple ways. Today, I want to share an amazing DIY recipe to make rose oil at home. It helps to keep my skin healthy, clear, flawless and reverses the ageing process. Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 50 ml of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of dried rose petals.
  • 2 tsp of Vitamin E oil or 5 Vitamin E capsules.

Things you will need:

  • A big jar for preparation.
  • A small glass or plastic bottle to store prepared mixture.

Recipe:

Preparation of rose oil

  1. Pluck 15-20 organic roses from your garden and dry them in shade. If you dry rose petals in direct sunlight, it will burn them. The procedure of drying rose petals will take 4-5 days.
  2. After the rose petals are completely dried. Crush them with your hands or with the help of a blender.
  3. Put 1 cup of dried rose petals in a jar of 200 ml.
  4. Then add coconut oil into the jar. I used coconut oil as a carrier oil because it gets easily absorbed by the skin.
  5. Make sure that the jar is filled 3/4th with roses and 1/4th with coconut oil. You can increase or decrease the amount but keep the ratio same.
  6. Leave the jar in direct sunlight during daytime and at a cold, dark place during night-time. And mix the ingredients of the jar at least 2 times a day.
  7. Repeat this simple procedure up to 2 weeks at a minimum and up to 4 weeks at a maximum (if you want to intensify this oil).
  8. When the oil is ready, strain it by discarding the roses. But don’t throw them. You can use the discarded roses in your homemade face packs.
  9. Add Vitamin E oil to the prepared oil. Vitamin E oil will help your skin to slow down the ageing process.
  10. The prepared rose oil will be deep red in colour. I kept the mixture for 4 weeks to intensify it.

How to use rose oil:

  • For normal to dry skin – Use the required amount of rose oil at night-time all over your face & neck.
  • For oily to combination skin – Whenever you apply moisturiser at night-time, mix 3-4 drops of rose oil into it and apply it onto your face and neck.
