Who doesn’t love to be pampered? With this DIY Rose Spa Kit, you can get the benefits of a spa treatment at your home. I made this spa kit as a gift for my mom. It is made with all natural ingredients and is really easy to put up. I made three products – body scrub, body oil and face mask. I have used “rose petals” as the wonder ingredient in this spa kit.
We all know that roses are refreshing and awesome-smelling!! But do you know that they are amazing for your skin as well? Yes, roses work wonders for your skin. They contain natural oils that moisturize skin and provide toning benefits. Rose petals also leave your skin radiant and glowing.
Ingredients: Red rose petals, almonds, olive oil, sweet almond oil, oatmeal, fuller’s earth
Rose Almond Body Scrub
To make the body scrub, first grind a handful of almonds in a mixer-grinder to make a coarse powder. Empty this powder in a jar and add a few rose petals.
Then add a small quantity of virgin olive oil (about 1 teaspoon) to moist the mixture. Don’t add too much oil as it would lose its grainy consistency needed for a scrub.
Then, mix all the ingredients thoroughly and the scrub is ready.
This scrub can be preserved for a month. To use it, take a small amount of the scrub and gently rub it on your face in circular motion for 3-5 minutes. Then, wash it off with lukewarm water. Almonds are very beneficial for your skin, as they contain a good amount of vitamin E, which helps in preventing cell damage and also helps in preventing the damage caused by the sun’s rays. They are also rich in vitamin A, and have moisturizing and soothing properties. After using this scrub, you will notice suppleness in your skin.
Rose-infused Body Oil
First, crush rose petals from 2 roses in a small jar to release its oils. Then, I add one part sweet almond oil and two parts olive oil to the jar. After this, keep this jar in a cool place, away from direct sunlight for 2 days. At the end of two days, filter the oil and remove the petals. You can also add a few drops of rose essential oil to the jar now.
This rose-infused body oil works wonders for nourishing and moisturizing your skin. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and has anti-aging properties. It makes the skin smooth and protects it against UV rays. Almond oil adds glow to your skin.
Rose-Oatmeal Face Mask
Grind some oatmeal along with rose petals. Take this powder out in a jar.
Add 2 tbps of fuller’s earth to the jar. Give the ingredients a nice mix. The face mask is ready.
When you want to use it, take some out and add rose water to it and apply to your face. Keep it on for 20-25 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.
This face mask is really good for moisturizing your skin and keeping it oil-free at the same time. Fuller’s earth helps in improving complexion and revitalizes the skin. Oatmeal is a boon for your skin, as it cleanses, nourishes and heals your skin. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
