So, in case I haven’t mentioned it, my first year wedding anniversary is coming up in less than a month. We have some plans for a night or 2 away, and I am very excited!
Last February, for Valentines Day, I wanted to make this massage oil, but things got in the way, and it never happened. I figured our wedding anniversary would be a good time to make it.
Since the oil and the rose has to infuse for 6-8 weeks, it just takes a little while! However, it has been infusing the last couple months, and finally is ready to go! Plus doesn’t “rose infused massage oil” just sound so romantic?
Rose Infused Massage Oil
Recipe from Bath Alchemy
1 cup rose petals or rose buds
2 cups grapeseed oil
10 drops geranium oil
10 drops bay oil
1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
First, infuse the rose buds with the oil. Place in a glass jar and cover with a tight fitting lid. Let sit in a sunny spot for 6-8 weeks, shaking periodically.
After the rose has infused for a sufficient amount of time, strain out the rose from the oil. I placed some cheesecloth over a fine mesh strainer, and removed the rose from the oil. I had about 8 ounces of the rose infused oil.
To the oil, add the remaining oils. Stir well.
I have no idea how long this will last, I am hoping a while! All I know is that it smells really good!
