DIY Beauty | Rose Petal, Sugar + Honey Love Scrub

DIY Beauty Rose Petal Sugar Wedderspoon Honey Love Scrub

Here’s a sweet + sassy little DIY that won’t leave you heart-broken… or, broken-out on Valentine’s Day!

There’s no doubt that roses are ridiculously good for your skin! I mean, they’re in everything when it comes to natural skincare, and, for a totally good reason. Not only are they aromatic, but they’re incredibly soft, really nourishing, + totally luxe… plus, they have some street cred for balancing out hormonal skin.

Wedderspoon’s raw, unpasteurized Ulmo Honey is rich in vitamins + nutrients, + has active properties that are super-similar to cult beauty fave, Manuka Honey! And of course – there’s nothing like a little sugar to sweeten up the deal, + make way for some gorge, new skin cells! So, girl… don’t throw away those flowers without pampering yourself, first!

Ingredients + Supplies


  1. Tear apart or crumble your rose petals into tiny little pieces, + add them to the mortar.
  2. Next, add the sugar, then grind with the pestle {if you don’t have one, see Tips below}.
  3. Add rose oil + honey, + continue grinding until it’s mixed well.
  4. Massage onto damp, clean in a circular motion, avoiding your eye area + rinse as usual.


  • You may have to play with the ingredient amounts depending on the size of your rose.
  • The Rose Absolute Essential Oil is strong, so only use the recommended amount.
  • Organic Roses, or Roses grown in your own garden are of course best to limit the amount of pesticides, fungicides, etc.
  • If you don’t have access to a mortar + pestle, try using the bottom of a small jar inside a bowl to ground the rose petals.
  • Grab DIY ingredients + supplies from Amazon, Mountain Rose Herbs, Starwest Botanicals, Aura Cacia, Frontier Co-op, or The Container Store.

    Interesting! I’ve used honey as a face mask for a while which is great at healing my skin, but never thought to add roses. Thanks for the idea!

    This is great, thanks for sharing! I am a huge fan of honey and all the amazing things it can be used for. I am currently blogging for Beausoleil Organics, a startup natural makeup company, and I would highly recommend checking out their organic products. Head on over to read some of our recent posts or shop for new products!

    Nice recipe! One warning about using rose petals – make sure you know where your roses come from (organic, home grown). I read a book called Flower Confidential that talks about how many roses are dipped in vats of fungicides before being shipped to the US. The book said romantic things like bathing in rose petals with commercial roses is not a good idea and I’d think the same would apply to using them in facials as well.

      Thanks Carly! :) Yes, I agree! Organic roses, or roses grown in your own garden are of course best in order to avoid all the nasties! I’ve noted that under “Tips” in the post. XO <3

    Recently I had a bout of pimples on which I applied garlic (only for a few minutes) which had left behind terrible burns marks. I have tried evrything under the sun to treat these marks but achieved little success. Please help.

      Hey Ishita! Oh no! So sorry to hear that! :( Just goes to show how powerful nature can really be. I’d highly recommend Celsus Bio-Intelligence Scar Cream… I’ve used it (+ continue to use it) on everything from my post-Mastectomy Surgical Scars, to Acne Scars, as a Face Cream under my Makeup + even an Eye Creap which doesn’t creep into my eyes! Good Luck girl, + keep us posted if you try it, or find something else that helps! XO <3
