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.
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.
