Children benefit from the aroma of rose
Children benefit from the aroma of rose

In the final post of my current double rose trilogy on the blog, I am finishing with three luxurious blends to add to the three simple rose blends from last week. If you love the exotic aroma of rose, and would like to use them for some common situations this summer, these blends are created just for you!

Aromatic Rose Whipped Body Butter with Essential Oils

Whipped body butter is a luxurious aromatherapy product to begin with, so why not add rose and some complimentary aromas to it to take it one step further! The base recipe for my own custom whipped body butter is available via my course but for a basic base, whip shea butter or coconut oil (virgin) lightly and add in the following essential oil blend.

  • 8 oz whipped body butter

Essential Oil Blend (2% blend; half this amount if you intend to use it on your face):

  • 7 drops rose (Rosa x damascena) essential oil

  • 15 drops frankincense (Boswellia sacra) essential oil

  • 10 drops vetiver (Vetivera zizaniodes) essential oil

  • 30 drops lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil

  • 30 drops sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil

Instructions for Use:

  • Blend together the whipped body base with the essential oil blend in an 8 oz container.

  • Apply to the skin after bathing. Be aware that some individuals may have sensitization with regard to the addition of sweet orange essential oil. If irritation occurs, stop using straight away. This blend is intended for adult use only.

Bonus Tip:

  • This a GREAT blend for mature skin and skin which has been exposed to sun throughout the summer months!

Aromatic Rose Perfume Roll on

Perfume roll-ons are great to carry around in your purse and use on-the-go. I have several both in my purse and around my home! I always use a base of jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) for basic perfume roll-on blends as it is the easiest base to blend with almost any essential oil.

You will need:

  • 1 oz jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)

  • 2 drops rose (Rosa x centifolia) essential oil

  • 6 drops lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil

  • 4 drops Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) essential oil

Instructions for Use:

  • Combine the essential oils with the jojoba. Add to a 1 oz roll-on bottle.

  • Apply as required. For adult use only.

Bonus Tip:

  • This is a calming blend and can be used in stressful situations on-the-go.

Relaxing Rose Inhaler for Children

Children can benefit from the aroma of rose essential oil in a number of ways. Although a more luxurious essential oil to use in a children’s blend, it is worth the investment, and just a drop may help. Rose essential oil helps children navigate the stresses of the school yard by increasing confidence, controlling jealousy, and in calming and relieving tension for feelings of inadequacy. An inhaler is a great application to use in these instances.

You will need:

  • a standard plastic inhaler

  • 5 drops of rose (Rosa x damascena) essential oil

Instructions for Use:

  • Add the rose essential oil to the wick of the inhaler. Make sure that it is fully soaked in before putting the inhaler together.

  • The child can use the inhaler by taking a couple of short sniffs in the appropriate situation. Make sure that the inhaler does not touch mucous membranes or that it is inserted into any orifice. Adult supervision is recommended until the child fully understands how to use the inhaler appropriately.

  • For use with children five years and over.

Bonus Tip:

  • Substitute with geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil as an alternative.
