Ingredients

Part One: HOW TO INFUSE THE OIL WITH ROSE PETALS

Part Two: HOW TO MAKE WHIPPED KOKUM BUTTER

  • 3/4 Cup of Rose Infused Almond Oil

  • 1 Cup of cut up Kokum Butter (loosely measured, do not pack into the measuring cup)

  • 20 Drops Rose Essential Oil. This is optional if you want a stronger rose scent

  • 1 teaspoon of pink mica. This is optional as it does not add any skin benefits to the body butter, however, the soft, pink hue makes this simple skin treat so lovely, so you may not want to skip this 🙂

Instructions

  1. Place rose petals in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or jar
  2. Pour Almond Oil over rose petals until completely covered
  3. Place glass jar with the oil and petals in a double boiler on low heat for 2 – 4 hours
  4. Pour the mixture through a strainer to remove the rose petals from the oil. It is optional to also pour the oil through an additional strainer to remove any fine particles the rose petals may have left in the oil (you may use a cheese cloth or coffee filter for the second filter process)
  5. Place Kokum Butter and rose-infused almond oil in a double boiler system on low heat until completely melted
  6. Once completely melted, place in the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour, until it is firm but not completely solid (soft to the touch)
  7. Stir it up with a spoon or spatula and add in optional pink mica and essential oil, stir these until mixed well
  8. Using an electric blender, whip the mixture for several minutes until it is light and fluffy
  9. Scoop into your jars or final containers

Uses and Benefits

Use this whipped Kokum Butter as a face and body moisturizer, or for particularly dry skin spots. It will help heal the skin and/or maintain it so it is silky smooth.
