How To Apply Flower Petals On Face (Easy Guide)

Roses and other petals have been used for centuries in face masks, toners and other skincare products. 

Rose petals are particularly well known for their healing benefits on the skin and are used as an ingredient in many skincare products. 

You can use fresh or dried rose petals to make your own face mask, facial toner or even a body scrub! 

Here’s how to apply them:

Petals & Essential Oils for Radiant Skin

Rose Petals: For a rosy glow, apply rose petals on the face and neck.

Essential Oils: If you want to add some extra moisture to your skin, consider using one of these essential oils in addition to the rose petals: chamomile, lavender or orange blossom (any one will do).

How To Apply The Petals & Essential Oil: Take 1 teaspoon of rose petals in a small bowl then add 2 drops each of chamomile, lavender and orange blossom essential oil. Mix well so that it forms a paste-like consistency. 

Apply this mixture all over your face and neck by gently massaging it into your skin with circular motions for about 2 minutes until it dries off completely.

Rose Petals for Luscious Lips

To create a lip scrub, you need to grind the rose petals with a mortar and pestle. Mix them with three tablespoons of honey and two tablespoons of olive oil. 

Rub this on your lips, making sure that you hit all parts of your lips including the sides and top. 

Leave it on for five minutes before rinsing off with warm water or wiping off with a washcloth. The result will be soft and luscious lips!

Now, if you want to make a lip balm using rose petals, mix together one tablespoon each of coconut oil (or sweet almond oil), beeswax pellets, shea butter and sunflower seed oil in an airtight container until it gets melted together well. 

Then add ten drops each of peppermint essential oil and frankincense essential oils as well as some dried rose petals (about 1/4 cup). 

Stir everything together until thoroughly combined; then transfer the mixture into little tins or jars before putting them in the fridge for 15 minutes so that they get firm again before use.

Jasmine Petal Toner for Bright Skin

When it comes to skincare, jasmine petals are considered as rich in antioxidants. They help with skin inflammation and also aid in the reduction of pigmentation. 

The flowers are even said to be good for skin elasticity, which can lead to an overall better looking complexion.

Jasmine petals have a cooling effect on the skin and when applied topically; they help calm down irritated or inflamed skin. 

This is especially useful for those who suffer from acne breakouts or redness caused by sun exposure or excessive heat exposure (like inside an oven).

Rose Petal Toner for Tightening Pores

Rose petals are naturally astringent, so they help to tighten pores and even out skin tone. If you have acne or blackheads, rose petals can be massaged into the affected area to remove them.

You may also wish to use rose water as an all-over toner; it’s especially good at reducing redness and calming irritated skin. 

To use rose water as a facial mist, fill a spray bottle with distilled water (or filtered water if you don’t mind the minerals in it). 

Add 1 tablespoon of dried or candied edible roses per cup of water, then allow them to steep overnight in the refrigerator this will help bring out their essential oils and make your toner more fragrant! 

Then strain out any solids before filling up your spray bottle with just enough liquid for one application on each face mask day about 2 tablespoons should do it!

Lavender & Chamomile-Infused Paste to Treat Acne

Chamomile is a natural antiseptic, while lavender is calming and soothing. Mix these two together in equal parts to make a paste, then apply it directly to any acne you would like to treat. Leave on for 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

Fresh Marigold Petal Pack to Treat Sunburns

Sunburns are a common problem for people who spend a lot of time in the sun, especially during hot summer months or on vacation. 

A sunburn causes redness and pain on the skin, and it can lead to serious complications if left untreated. Fortunately there are many home remedies you can use to treat a sunburn and prevent it from getting worse.

One such remedy is applying fresh marigold petals directly to affected areas of your skin. Marigolds have been used for centuries as an herbal remedy for burns because they contain anti-inflammatory oils that reduce swelling, relieve pain, and speed up healing time while reducing scarring!

Rosewater Face Mist to Control Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, rosewater is a natural astringent that can help reduce the appearance of pores and keep your face looking matte for hours on end. 

Simply spritz some rosewater onto a cotton pad and sweep it over your face after applying foundation or concealer.

Rose Water Toner to Control Excess Oil

Rose water is a multipurpose toner that can be used as a skin softener, astringent and facial spritz. It helps control excess oil on the face. 

This can be made by adding 1/2 cup of cornstarch to 2 cups of rose petals and soaking it overnight.

In the morning, add some lemon juice to get rid of any excess starch in the mixture and strain it through a muslin cloth so that only pure rose water is left behind. 

Store this in an airtight bottle and use as required throughout your day not just before applying makeup!

Orange Blossom Face Mask for Dull Skin

Orange Blossom Water:

Orange blossom water is a natural source of vitamin C, which helps reduce skin pigmentation. It’s also good for treating acne and removing blackheads. 

To use orange blossom water on your face, you can add it to any recipe that calls for water or rosewater. 

Or you can make it separately by adding one cup of sugar and one tablespoon of orange blossom oil in a glass bottle filled with two cups of boiling water. Let it cool down before using on your face.

Orange Flower Water Face Mist to Remove Wrinkles

So, what is orange flower water? It’s a toner made from distilling the petals of orange blossom flowers. 

It has a light, floral scent and is often used in face mists because it helps to reduce wrinkles and can also be used for acne. To make your own orange flower water, you will need:

  • 3 cups of distilled water
  • 1/4 cup dried orange blossoms

Lotus Eye Contour Gel to Reduce Dark Circles & Under-Eye Bags

Lotus flower has been used for centuries in various forms of medicine and cosmetics. It is considered a symbol of purity, sacredness and beauty. As it turns out, the lotus flower can have many beneficial properties to your skin. 

The essential oil extracted from its leaves has anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce puffiness around the eyes while also evening out skin tone. 

The gel that I use contains both rose water and sandalwood powder with other natural extracts including aloe vera gel, almond oil and coconut oil that help nourish the delicate eye area.

Brightening Night Cream with Roses, Rosemary & Sandalwood Powder

In order to get the most out of this ingredient, it’s important to remember that the flower petals must be dried. 

You can do this by placing them in a dry, dark place for a few days. Afterward, you’re ready to make your brightening night cream with roses!
