  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup dried rose petals
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp rose hip seed oil or other facial oil


  • Combine the rolled oats and dried rose petals into your coffee or herb grinder and pulse until coarsely ground.
  • In a small bowl, add honey and rosehip seed oil, stir to combine.
  • Add ground oat and rose petal combination and stir well until combined.
  • Store in a sealed glass mason jar.



  • To get 1/4 cup dried rose petals, you'll need to harvest about 1 1/2 cups fresh rose petals.
  • Use a coffee grinder for easy griding. You can use a mortar and pestle as well. 
  • To easily clean your coffee grinder between uses, grind some whole grain and grind for about 10 seconds.
  • It's easiest to work with honey that's slightly warmed up, you can do this by placing your bowl of honey in about an inch of water in a pan on the stove and simmer until honey is a soft liquid.
  • If you can't find rosehip seed oil, you can use any other good quality facial oil.
  • The face wash can be stored for about two months as long as no water gets into the jar. I recommend making in small batches so it's nice and fresh.
