DIY // PLUMERIA <> HISBISCUS BEAUTY OIL
The other day on a waxing crescent in Virgo, I made this beauty oil and I thought I would share!
What you need:
- Handful of Plumeria flowers (flowers need to fill entire jar)
- At least one Hibiscus Flower (leaves optional)
- 8-16 oz mason jar with lid
- 8-16 oz of oil: almond, jojoba, coconut, olive oil - the choice is up to you! I used almond oil
- A Rose quartz crystal
Hibiscus and Plumeria are known as the beauty flowers. They are very moisturizing for dry skin and are packed with anti-oxidants. Hibiscus is used for clarifying and dandruff control as well as hair growth. Plumeria, or Frangipani, has an intoxicating scent and is known to bring inner peace and self-love. So why not combine these two to make an ultimate beauty oil for your skin and hair?
First, I picked the flowers (my boss has them in her backyard) or you can find them at a store or nursery. Be sure to pick fallen ones first that are not bruised - think of them as a gift from these magical plants! And then give thanks as you pick the rest from the trees. Pick enough to fill the jar you are using.
Once you fill the far with flowers, fill the jar with oil until you cover the petals. I also added a chunky raw Rose quartz into the jar. Rose Quartz is a love and beauty stone, so I asked her to bless this oil with self love, nourishment, and healing properties. Keep the Rose quartz in there throughout the infusion process because it acts as a good mixer when you give the oil a good shake!
I put the jar outside with another Rose quartz on top to seal it with love! The sun will warm the oil and help break down the flowers and help with the blending. Everyday give it a little shake to break it down more (the Rose quartz will help) and let it all marinate for 1-2 weeks.
I will be straining this beauty concoction on the Full Moon August 10th! I will keep you updated the next time I post on how to strain and use the oil! I have never made it before, so this will be a fun beauty experiment :)
