- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp grated cocoa butter
- 1 Tbsp dried rosebuds (or any dried flower, green tea, etc)
- 1/4 tsp vitamin E oil (or 3 punctured, squeezed out vitamin E capsules)
- 3 drops rose essential oil (optional, or substitute lavender, vanilla, or sweet orange)
On very low heat, melt the coconut oil in a small stainless steel bowl or pot. After the oil is liquid, add your roses (or other dried flowers) and stir well. Allow to steep (again, on very low heat) for one hour. Strain oil into a bowl through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth. Wipe out your original heating pot/bowl, pour oil back in, and return to heat. Add cocoa butter and stir until melted. Remove from heat, add vitamin E oil and essential oil and stir well. Transfer to a small container and let set for three hours.
