Combine the dried rose hips and carrier oils in a jar, then cover the jar and let it sit to infuse in a cool and dark place for 4-6 weeks.
Rose Hip Lip Balm
Put the infused oil and beeswax into the top container of a double boiler, and stir as the beeswax melts. (Tip: you can make a double boiler with a smaller pot, bowl, or glass pyrex measuring cup over an inch or so of simmering water. If you use glass pyrex, put something in the bottom of the pot that it can rest on, such as a canning jar lid).
Once the beeswax has completely melted, add the shea butter and stir until it dissolves.
When everything has liquefied, remove from heat and stir in the rose hip seed oil and sweet orange essential oil (if using).
Carefully pour the mixture into small tins or lip balm tubes.
Let them cool undisturbed for several hours. The lip balm will harden as it cools.
Refined cocoa butter or mango butter can be substituted for shea butter, though because they are harder, the final product may also be harder than the original recipe.
