Rose Hand Lotion

I made this recipe on Saturday night to give for Mother's Day. I don't know the exact proportions.

Cold pressed olive oil
Dried rose petals

Infuse rose petals in oil over a double burner for one hour. Strain into another dish and place over double burner. Add:

Coconut oil
Beeswax, grated
Cocoa butter, grated

When melted, pour into containers and label.

The amount of beeswax you use will depend on how solid you like the cream to be. Add more if you want a balm instead of a lotion.
