DIY Rose Infused Grapeseed Oil (Recipe 1)

Good Morning Maicurlies,

I mentioned in my last post (here) that I am going to making a “mini series” of DIY Infused oils and here is the first. My DIY Rose Infused Grapeseed oil.

Completed product: DIY Rose Infused Grapeseed Oil with Rose Essential Oil

So, why would you want to use Rose Infused Oil for your hair and/or skin?

  • Helps retain moisture
  • Provides Shine
  • Strengthens hair at the root
  • Protects against frizz
  • Gives the hair a boost of luster
  • Helps stimulate growth (when massaged on the scalp)
  •  Can help relieve psoriasis & dandruff – (consult your dermatologist)
  • Moisturizing effect on dry and chapped skin
  • Nourishes the skin to help retain moisture
  • Natural astringent
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – (with frequent use)
  • Can fight light skin irritations due to its antibacterial properties – (consult your dermatologist)
  • Soothing effect on lightly sunburned or sensitive skin – (consult your dermatologist)
  • Lightly fade acne scars and stretch marks – (with frequent use)
  • Improves the texture of the skin due to vitamin C

Depending on the carrier oil you choose, you also get the additional benefit of that along with the properties of roses. On my blog I have a list of different carrier oil benefits for the hair and skin.

I personally use Grapeseed oil because:

Grapeseed oil is easily absorbed into the hair and scalp without weighing down the hair or clogging up pores due to the fact that it is an extremely light oil. Those with fine hair (such as I) can use it without worrying about having greasy hair. It is known to help heal alopecia areata as well dry and itchy scalps (consult your dermatologist) and can help fight dandruff. It is great at  sealing and retaining moisture.

Ingredients/tools used:

  • 1/2 cup dried white roses (2x as I made 2 jars)
  • 1/2 cup dried red roses (2x as I made 2 jars)
  • 1.5 cups (roughly) of Grapeseed Oil (per jar)
  • 11 drops Rose Essential oil (optional)
  • Spoon
  • Stirrer
  • Sieve
  • Coffee Filter
  • Funnel

I have a video up of my process (see below):

*NOTE: I am not a dermatologist nor a doctor. I provide this for informational purposes only so please consult with a professional before you apply anything new to your skin or hair. Should you be taking medication or creams from a medical professional please do not replace that with my DIY recipe – consult your medical professional first! If you are allergic to any of the ingredients I use do not use them. Do a small patch test on the inside of your arm when trying anything new before applying it all over your hair/skin. Always ensure to dilute the Essential Oils (EO) in a carrier oil as they can cause skin irritations if used undiluted. If you are pregnant you should NOT use any EO.

If you try this please let me know how it turns out. If you make your own Infused Rose Oil I would love to hear from you!




DIY Infused Oil “Mini-Series”

HELLLOOO Maicurlies,

I hope all is well!

I have been BUSY making DIY mixes, recording videos (editing), taking photos and have come up with an Infused Oil “series”! Do I hear you say: HOW EXCITING! (Yes, it is!)

Infused Oils

                                                                                      Infused Oils

If you are wondering why would you want to make an infused oil? I say why not?!

In all seriousness, infused oils give you the option of incorporating your favorite ingredients to your favorite carrier oil – adding more punch, nourishment and benefits for your hair and/or skin.

Uses of infused oils for the hair

Infused oils can be used in a number of different ways such as: Pre-poo’s, hot oil treatments, scalp massages, Deep Conditioners, leave-in conditioners, whipped butters, sealing…ANYTHING! Their benefits depend on the ingredients used for infusion and the carrier oil you use. With each of my infusions I  will list the benefits of each and how I personally use them.

Infused oil for skin

You can incorporate infused oils into a DIY Body butters, sugar scrubs or even directly onto your skin to trap in moisture after a shower.

So which Oils have I made (are in the making?)

  • Rose Infused Grapeseed Oil
  • Hibiscus Infused Almond Oil
  • Amla Infused Grapeseed Oil
  • Coffee Infused Almond Oil
  • Neem Infused Coconut Oil

Heads up – Rose Infused Grapeseed Oil will be first!

I hope you enjoy this “mini series”.
