• DIY Pretty Petals Rose Perfume Balm

    Our DIY perfume balm is a beautiful, simple, low tox way to create a pretty personal fragrance without harmful synthetic chemicals and fake smells. Combining nourishing shea and jojoba oil, as well as a range of pure essential oils, our DIY perfume balm is long lasting, customisable and easy to keep in your bag or on your desk.

    We’ve called this one a Pretty Petals Rose Perfume Balm, but you could use a range of different essential oils to suit your taste. Perhaps something less floral and more woody – it’s up to you.

    Make Your Own Perfume Balm


    Essential oils of choice. In our perfume balm we used:


    1. Combine the rose petals and the jojoba oil in a small mason jar and leave to infuse overnight. The next day, thoroughly strain the oil through a garni bag, some muslin or a fine sieve into a cup and set aside. You may need to squeeze the rose petals to get more of the oil out.
    2. In a mason jar or glass jug, combine 1 tablespoon of the rose infused jojoba oil with the shea butter and candelilla wax.
    3. Place the jar or jug into a saucepan filled with approximately 5cm of water. Turn heat to medium-low and heat until wax has melted. Stir occasionally.
    4. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool slightly.
    5. Stir in the rosehip oil, pink clay and essential oils. Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
    6. Carefully pour the mixture into your containers. Leave to cool completely before sealing with the lid. This will ensure there is no moisture build up inside the lid which could ruin your batch. Store out of direct sunlight and away from heat.

    How To Use

    Use within 6-9 months.

    Apply a little to your pulse points, neck and décolleté using clean dry fingers.

    Don’t have time to infuse? That’s ok! Just leave out the rose petal infusion process and use 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil as is.

    This recipe makes enough to fill 2 x 15ml containers.

    Tip: Rub a small amount of this perfume balm into the tips of your hair. It will not only condition dry damaged ends, but will also surround you with wonderful floral aroma.

    Note: Our perfume balm recipe gets it’s pink hue from the pink clay. This won’t stain your skin or clothes.

We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or a commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication.
