Why It’s Time to Make Your Own Rose Body Butter?

I’m not here to convince you that making your own skincare products is the best choice in your life. I just want to share with you my personal reasons for going all-natural.

  • has flexible ingredients (so you can pretty much use what you have on hand)

How Do You Make Homemade Rose Butter at Home

The whole process of making your own rose body butter is fairly simple and straightforward. Combine together butter (like shea butter) and good carrier oil. Add to the mix an oil-absorbing ingredient like arrowroot powder and mix! You’re done! You may add essential oils if desired.

What you will love about this homemade rose body butter is that the recipe is easily customizable. This natural rose body butter recipe uses ingredients that are already shelf-stable.

As such, you can store yours for about six months. You won’t believe how easy this is to make! This is a DIY rose whipped body butter with shea butter. I’m a HUGE fan of shea butter. I love slathering it on after a hot bath or shower. I have really dry skin, especially in the winter, and my skin just loves to soak up the shea butter.

But for this easy rose butter recipe, you will also use coconut oil, arrowroot powder, and rose essential oil + vitamin E oil. You will find this easy body cream recipe below!

Add Natural Ingredients That Absorb Grease

You can use arrowroot powder, cornstarch powder, and tapioca powder to help minimize the amount of oil in your body butter.

Arrowroot powder is starch extracted from the root of tropical plants. In addition to absorbing oils, arrowroot powder is high in B vitamins, helps to improve circulation, and can also improve your skin’s ability to absorb other nutrients.

What are the effects of arrowroot on body butter?

Body butter can feel greasy on the skin. Arrowroot powder helps – it cuts the oily texture and helps the recipe absorb more quickly.

Arrowroot absorbs oils/sebum beautifully and also promotes natural healing as it penetrates the skin.

Well, arrowroot powder is extremely good for our skin, which goes deep into the skin, softens it from inside, and makes it blemish-free naturally.

This easy rose body butter recipe uses essential oils. While they aren’t necessary, adding them can turn your butter from being simply moisturizing to something that really addresses what is going on with your skin.

I also added a touch of frankincense essential oil for a light scent and for frankincense’s valuable astringent properties when used in skin care applications.

Because frankincense can help to protect skin cells, it’s useful in preventing acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, and wrinkles. It’s also believed to help lift and tighten the skin, which can deter the signs of aging.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, my rose body butter recipe also absorbs quickly, so you can get on with your day without leaving oily marks everywhere you go!

Can You Use Rose Water in Body Butter?

Rosewater will make your shea butter lotion smell so amazing. Rosewater provides a cooling and soothing sensation when applied to the skin, which makes it an ideal ingredient for this shea butter homemade lotion. It’s also a natural astringent which keeps your skin fresh by controlling sebum.

Simply add shea butter, rose water, and essential oils into your food processor and blend for about a couple of minutes till smooth. There you are! Your shea butter lotion is ready!

Can I Put Rose Clay in Body Butter?

Yes, you could. However, note that it will change the color of the body butter.

The rose clay adds a pale pink tint to the body butter; you can leave it out or replace it with a bit of alkanet root-infused oil if you’d like.

    I love coconut food, body lotion, hair product, etc. and I love anything rose colored. I will be trying this out. Thanks for sharing

    • Lora says:

      Yes, that’s true. I’m using Frankincense because it has anti-aging properties. So, for example, for clear skin, you can use 5 drops of frankincense + 5 drops of lavender + 5 drops of tea tree. For anti-aging: 3 drops frankincense + 3 drops rose + 3 drops helichrysum + 2 drops myrrh + 2 drops lavender.
