A simple do it yourself beauty project - DIY Tea Body Scrub

A simple do it yourself beauty project 

For a tea enthusiast, like myself, I am always trying to figure out a new way to incorporate tea into my everyday life. Of course, drinking tea is essential but where’s the fun if you can’t explore the options!
As someone who exfoliates regularly, I thought; why not make a scrub that includes tea? I’ve seen the product out there for purchase, but why would I spend the money to buy it when I have all the necessities to make it right at home? And so I began..
First, I needed the scrub base, something to help exfoliate when scrubbing, I used Epsom salts.  I also used a CTC (cut-tear-curl) type tea leaf, because I know this type of tea leaf will not change its consistency when exposed to moisture's such as steam, water or oils.
For my CTC tea I used Irish Breakfast, Thankfully Tea Blendz has this available.
 
 
Secondly I added some vanilla, because well…I simply like vanilla, besides it smells nice.
The vanilla is optional please do not feel obligated to use it.
 
Next I added a TBS of Tea Blendz Natural Raw Honey, olive oil and an essential-oil. 
 
 This portion is really up to what you like, I used Lavender essential-oil to help soothe out the warm tones the vanilla has set earlier.
I am going for a relaxing scrub and lavender does the trick for me.
As an added bonus, or should I say "extra pampering", maybe include some  Tea Blendz Lavender buds, after all, who doesn’t love the smell and lovely pastel color of Lavender!
 

Last but not least, our final step – mixing!!

Make sure to mix the above ingredients thoroughly to distribute the olive oil evenly and get a lovely unison texture. Here you have it – your very own home made
Tea Body Scrub!!!

 

 
 
Tip: Store extra in a spare mason jar and make sure to use within 2 weeks of making.
