Rose for Petal Soft Skin

Written by: | January 24, 2018 | Leave a Comment

Rose is a classic symbol of love and its unmistakable fragrance fills the air with romance, but roses also have a full bouquet of benefits for the skin. “The sugars and natural oils found in rose petals trap moisture in your skin, making your skin look smoother and softer—just like the beautiful rose petals themselves,” write Deepak Chopra, MD, and Kimberly Snyder, Certified Nutritionist, in Radical Beauty: How to Transform Yourself from the Inside Out. If you’ve ever felt the silky smooth softness of a rose petal, you can feel the promise this delicate flower has for our skin! Essential has lovely formulations using the power of rose to its fullest or you can try your hand at making some of your own rose recipes at home!

1              Green Tea bag

  • Add 16oz of Rose Distillate and 1 Tbsp of Vegetable glycerin to your pot, mix well, and heat to boil
  • Add your chamomile and green tea bags and let steep 5 minutes

1 Tsp                     Hyaluronic Acid
1Tsp                       Vegetable Glycerin
1TBSP                    Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate
1Tsp                       OptiMSM
1Tsp                       Optiphen Plus


  • Heat Rose Distillate to 180F.
  • Add OptiMSM to tea and mix until fully dissolved.
  • Add Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate and Vegetable Glycerin to tea.
  • Grab your stick blender and add Hyaluronic Acid to your tea slowly while constantly mixing. This will increase the viscosity of your tea and create the “serum” consistency.
  • Finally, add your Optiphen Plus for preservation and pour off into your packaging.
  • Use this serum after cleansing and toning. Apply while face is still wet with toner. After applying, let your skin rest for 1-5 minutes. This allows time for all of these wonderful ingredients to go to work. Apply your facial moisturizer as your final step.
