Easy rose body butter recipe

Do you want to make your own rose-whipped body butter but don’t want the hassle of heating things in a double broiler or using emulsifying wax? This easy rose body butter recipe is for YOU!

I’ve always dealt with very dry and sensitive skin. Finding a butter or body lotion that doesn’t cause irritation, break me out, or leave me greasy has been a journey.

Consequently, when you’re a green-living mama dealing with endometriosis, finding a cost-effective and HEALTHY option in stores is hard.

If you are in a similar place as me, this DIY rose-whipped body butter needs to make it onto your to-do list. It has been the answer to my body butter quest.

The whole process of making your homemade rose body butter is fairly simple. Combine wrinkle-fighting rosehip seed oil, skin-nourishing oils, butter, and naturally tinted pale pink with a smidge of rose clay or pink mica powder.  Add to the mix an oil-absorbing ingredient like arrowroot powder and mix! You’re done!

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 60 g shea butter
  • 20 g cold-pressed organic coconut oil (the solid version) 
  • 19 g rosehip oil
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 0.5 g rose absolute essential oils
  • 0.5 g of frankincense essential oil
  • 1/8 tsp pink clay or pink mica powder

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 roots 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.

Add a natural pink color to your rose whipped body butter by adding a small amount of rose or pink kaolin clay or pink mica powder. Try using around 1/8 teaspoon of clay or mica. Mix your body butter as normal, add the clay (mica), then mix for another minute or longer until fully incorporated.

How to make whipped rose body butter

1. Combine shea butter, coconut, and rosehip oil and melt in a double boiler.
2. Once melted, remove the heat and let it cool down to 40º(113ºF). You can speed this up by placing the container in the fridge or freezer. 
3. Add the essential oils, rose clay (or pink mica), and tapioca starch (if using).
4. Cool the mixture until it starts to solidify. You can speed this up by placing the container in the fridge or freezer and stirring occasionally.
5. Whip with an electric whisk. If it gets soft or liquid during whipping, cool down some more.
Continue with the process of cooling and whisking until you get your desired consistency.
6. Scoop into desired packaging.

Another option after step 3 is to pour the body into a container and leave it to solidify. This way, you’ll get a smooth, balm-like appearance rather than a whipped butter.

Keep your DIY rose body butter in a cool and dry place. The approximate shelf life is about six months.

Can You Use Rose Water in Body Butter?

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

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

    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.
