Rose Body Butter – Easy 3 Ingredient Recipe

You guys loved my whipped chocolate body butter so much, I felt it was high time for me to reformulate it with an even simpler recipe.  This rose body butter melts to the touch and glides on like…well, butter.  It penetrates deeply and with some studies showing that rose oil has the ability to allow the benefits of other ingredients to absorb more fully, it really harnesses the beautifying properties of both the shea butter and avocado oil.  The whipped version is super simple but this is even easier with a melt and mix format however, this one is infused with the beautiful aphrodisiac scent of roses.

There are two ways to go with the rose oil.  Rose absolute diluted with jojoba is the cost effective route while pure rose otto is the way to go if you’re looking for a potent therapeutic experience.  Keep in mind that with the more concentrated rose oil, a little bit goes a long way.  You may find that you only need a drop or two, even.  Pure, undiluted rose otto is ideal for those with trouble skin, anxiety or even low libido but don’t worry, jojoba blended rose absolute will still deliver the soothing and aromatherapy quality and can be used for multiple DIY’s like in my homemade candles.

I have dry skin and enjoy using avocado oil for this but if you have different skin care needs, you can certainly substitute it for something else.  I wrote an in-depth article about the best oils for every skin type.  Rosehip would be a great match for this body butter and is also excellent for mature skin while jojoba is a good for normal skin.
