Rose Face Oil Inflammation Support

Ingredients   

  • Petals of 1 organic rose, rinsed and completely dried* 
  • 1 ounce marula seed oil 
  • 1 ounce jojoba oil  
  • You can substitute other oils, but these work extremely well  

 
Directions 

  1. Allow collected rose petals to dry out on a clean kitchen or paper towel thoroughly before using. 
  1. Using a small saucepan, bring 3-4 inches of water to a boil. 
  1. Meanwhile, bruise rose petals by rubbing and tearing them apart, then place them in a sanitized mason jar. Add oils and swirl to mix, then seal the jar.  
  1. Remove the pan from the stove and place the mason jar in the water for 20 mins.  
  1. Move mason jar to a warm, sunny spot and allow it to sit for 24-36 hours.  
  1. Strain petals into a sealable 1 ounce glass jar with dropper using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. 

Note: If you prefer a stronger rose essence, you can repeat the process with the strained oil 

  1. Pat 4-5 drops on clean skin until absorbed, or massage up and outward, extending to your neckline to promote lymphatic drainage. 
  1.  Use face oil as the last step before adding SPF (moisturizer first, if using one). 
  1. If you are using a moisturizer first and have oily skin, rub the rose oil in your palms, then pat gently onto your face.  
  1. Apply AnnieMak Clean Skincare products to your face after your face oil for an added skincare boost! 

Makeup Tip: Use a tiny amount of this oil on non-T-zone areas over makeup that has been on for a while and needs a bit of refreshment. This includes cheeks, lips, and under the eyes (but not on the lash line as this will smudge eye makeup). Allow it to sit a few minutes to do its magic, and voila! 
 

Enjoy!
