Coco-Rosey Lip Balm Recipe
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 1 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 3 hours.
