Crafting Beauty: A DIY Tutorial on Making Vining Rose Petal Infused Raspberry Seed Oil

Wed, June 7, 2023

Welcome to Ivonne's Corner, our cozy, artisanal haven where the magic of homemade infusions come to life. Today, we're about to embark on a delightful DIY adventure and unveil the magic of creating our very own rose-infused raspberry seed oil. Get ready to infuse your senses with the sweet aromas of roses, lovingly grown right here on our picturesque Vashon Island property. The roses we are using are Rosa 'Cécile Brünner', a vining rose, which we purchased on a whim just three years ago.

What is Rose Infused Red Raspberry Seed Oil?

Rose infused raspberry seed oil is a beautiful, handcrafted oil that combines the enriching qualities of raspberry seed oil, the gentle aroma of rose petals, and its abundance of vitamins and antioxidants. The infusion of rose imparts the additional benefits of vitamin A and C, as well as antioxidants found in rose petals. Additionally, this splendid oil is suitable for all skin types, ensuring that everyone can bask in its rejuvenating properties. This infusion, also known as a macerated oil, is a luxurious way to pamper your skin and nourish your senses.

How to Make Rose Infused Raspberry Seed Oil

Materials Needed:

  • Measuring Cup
  • Mason Jar
  • Filter: Cheesecloth, unbleached/metal coffee filter, or your preferred filter
  • Optional: Scale for exact ratios

Ingredients Needed:

  • Red Raspberry Seed Oil
  • Fresh Rose Petals

Here's a simple step-by-step guide on how to make your own rose infused raspberry seed oil:

  1. Collect the rose petals: In the morning, gently pluck the vibrant rose petals. Allow them to rest overnight, spread out in a single layer to bid farewell to any insects and excess humidity. If you don't have access to vining roses, you can use petals from other edible rose varieties as a substitute.
  2. Prepare the sterilized mason jar: Begin by pouring boiling water into a mason jar, swirling it around to thoroughly sterilize it. Rinse the jar with clean water and let it dry completely.
  3. Add the rose petals to the jar: Carefully layer the rose petals inside the sterilized mason jar, ensuring they have enough space to mingle with the oil. Avoid packing them too tightly to allow for even oil distribution.
  4. Add the red raspberry seed oil: Pour red raspberry seed oil over the petals, covering them completely. Witness the beautiful dance of colors as the oil and petals intertwine. Leave enough room to seal the jar tightly. 
  5. Let it infuse: Seal the jar tightly and let it sit in a cool, dark place for approximately 24 hours, allowing the oil to absorb the irresistible aroma and subtle nuances of the rose petals.
  6. Filter and store: Once the infusion is complete, use an unbleached coffee filter or a soft cheesecloth to strain the oil, capturing its newfound essence in another clean container. Store the infused oil in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.
