DIY Jasmine Hand Cream Recipe with Shea Butter and Rosehip Oil

DIY Jasmine Hand Cream Recipe with Shea Butter and Rosehip Oil

Enjoy the beloved floral aroma of jasmine in this homemade hand cream recipe. Not only does it smell beautiful but it can improve the look and feel of skin, particularly mature or dry skin types. The base of this Jasmine Hand Cream is shea butter and rosehip oil, both are skin nourishing.

I like to use a no heat method for this hand cream, it still comes out great with a lot less work. Plus, I love the creamy texture and how it melts like butter onto the skin.

Essential Oils for Hand Cream

Jasmine Oil (Jasminum grandiflorum)

Jasmine oil calms the nervous system and releases stress and tension. Emotionally it can promote self-confidence and diminish fears. Jasmine is a costly oil due to the large number of flowers required with minimal yield. Jasmine absolute is usually easier to purchase than jasmine essential oil. In this recipe, I used the absolute but you can use either.

Absolutes are obtained through solvent extraction, a solvent (a chemical or alcohol) is combined with plant material. Edens Garden describes it as "The solvent attracts the oil from the plant material, and the solvent and oil are then separated."

Clary Sage Essential Oil (Salvia sclarea)

I love using Clary Sage to create female blends, it is so supportive and skin healing as well. It can reduce stress and boost mood. Read more about Clary sage.

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood essential oil has a sweet, woody aroma that is calming and helpful to breathing. Cedarwood Himalayan is the type of oil used in this recipe, you can read more about it here. Any type of cedarwood can be used, they all have skin healing properties.

Carrier Oils for Hand Cream

Shea Butter

Shea butter is the natural fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree. This thick and creamy butter makes an excellent moisturizer. It's perfect for dehydrated skin, especially to soften rough hands, heels, elbow, and knees. Frequently used in body butters, lotions, creams, and other natural skincare products. Read more about shea butter here.

Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip oil is extracted from the hips (fruit) of rose bushes. This valuable oil has a high antioxidant content which can revitalize skin, keeping it healthy and young. It's also incredible for stretch marks, sun damage, scars, and hyperpigmentations. Frequently used in anti-aging blends and skincare blends to moisturize, tone, and condition skin.
