Step 1

Pour sweet almond oil, coconut oil, lanolin and beeswax into a pot, and melt all the ingredients together over low heat on a stove.

Step 2

Cool the mixture to room temperature.

Step 3

Add rose water, aloe vera gel, rose blend essential oil and vitamin E oil to the mixture. Whip the ingredients together using a metal whisk (or electric mixer on low to medium speed) until smooth.
