Weekend Homework: Rose Moisturizer

Friday, August 7, 2009 |

Every Friday I'll post an easy DIY beauty recipe for you to try over the weekend. Good luck!

Rose Moisturizer

1 cup water
1/2 cup fresh red rose petals
1 cup liquid glycerin (available at drugstores)
1 tablespoon aloe vera juice (available at health food stores)
16 oz. empty bottle

In a small saucepan, heat water and rose petals just until boiling. Let the rose water cool, then strain out the petals.

Pour rose water into your bottle. Then, pour in glycerin and aloe vera juice. Place the cap on your bottle securely and shake well to blend.

Store your moisturizer in the fridge. Shake gently before each use. Try to avoid getting it in your eyes when applying to your face. This recipe does not have a long shelf life so use soon!
