Don’t throw those roses away! DIY Rose Body Scrub & Rose Potpourri Pouch

Rinse. Reuse. recycle. As my mom always says, “Once you buy it, you can do what you want with it!” Well, Bay bought these roses for me but I am going to repurpose them to get the most out of the beauties. It’s been a week and they have held up magnificently but let’s face it, they will begin to wilt sooner than later. In this post, I will highlight 2 quick ways you can repurpose your roses!

FIRST: Unless your roses are organic, make sure to remove all pesticides by soaking the roses in baking soda for 15-20 minutes. You do not want to use roses/flowers with pesticides on your skin.

#1 Rose Body Scrub

Body scrubs are amazing to gently remove dead skin cells, dirt and oil from the outer layer of skin. This helps to unclog pores and expose your skin’s underlying healthier layers.

Ingredients

1 cups Epsom Salt
3/4 cup baking soda
1 Rose
For Fragrance: Rose Essential oil  or Jasmine Essential Oil (Do NOT use NOT home fragrance on your skin!)

 

#2: Rose Potpourri Pouch  

Place them in your dresser drawers, closets or shoes to add a fresh fragrance to  them! Great to place in storage containers, cupboard to create fragrant aromas!

1 Organza Pouch

1 Rose

For Fragrance:  Rose Essential oil  or Jasmine Essential Oil
