How To Make Rose Oil
What better way to get ready for Valentine’s Day or Lupercalia than making your own rose oil? In fact, if you get started today, it’ll be ready just in time. It’s easy – just 3 steps!
Here’s my “lazy lady’s guide” to making your own rose oil:
Step 1: Fill a glass half-full with edible-grade dried rose petals or rose buds.
Step: 2: Pour the carrier oil of your choice into the same jar until it reaches the top (We used castor oil, but almond or jojoba works, too).
Step 3: Place in a dark cabinet for one moon cycle (28 days).
*You may opt to put a few drops of rose essential oil to enhance the scent, but that might be overkill.
I love using rose oil on my skin and hair as a daily self-love ritual, and it’s also a great addition to candle magic. “What’s candle magic?” you ask. Check out our Wild Wonder Podcast episode, “Ritual with Christina Rosso Schneider”. The Wild Wonder Podcast is available on SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube.
Important: If you’ve never used rose oil before, try it on a small patch of skin first to be sure you’re not allergic.
