Rose-Infused Lip Scrub
Serves: Appx 6oz
  1. Option 1- Cold Infusion - In a small glass jar combine the oil, rose petals, and comfrey. Seal the jar, giving it a liberal shake to disperse the herbs. Allow the oil to infuse in a cool, dark place for 2-3 weeks. Shake your oil every day or so to help the process along.
  2. Option 2- Heat Infusion – Combine the herbs and oil in a small glass bowl. Make sure the herbs are completely covered in oil. Fill a saucepan partially with water and place the bowl onto the pan and bring the water to a gentle boil. You want the oil in the bowl to get very hot and just the faintest bit bubbly. Too hot though and you’ll burn your herbs! Make sure to add water to the pan as it evaporates. After 2 hours, turn off the heat and remove the bowl.
  3. After the oil has infused and its cool, strain the herbs out and dispose of them. Cheesecloth, a coffee filter, or an old but clean t-shirt all work well for this. Be sure to really squeeze the oil from the herbs, since this is really the most potent.
  4. In a glass bowl combine your strained oil, mango butter, orange essential oil, and vitamin E oil. Mash it all together until well mixed.
  5. Using a fork or rubber spatula, mash the sugar into the mixture.
  6. Spoon your lip balm into a small glass jar.
  7. To use, gently scrub across lips while leaning over a sink and then rinse off with water.
