Green tea is therapeutic and I have previously discussed it’s benefits for overall health, skincare and well-being. If you haven’t yet read those blog posts do visit those and absorb the benefits of Green tea before you begin the regime.
So, I thought why should the goodness of Green tea only be limited to add an intrinsic value to our health. We can for sure come up with some DIY beauty recipes infusing green tea
Before we get into understanding how to make these beauty products understand that you will need a strong cup of green tea.
How to make Green tea?
Though I have written about it earlier, here is repeating myself.
1. Boil the water
2. In a Green tea detox bottle pour the tea leaves in the tea strainer like container which is a filter.
3. Fix the filter in the bottle.
4. Pour the boiled water on the leaves.
5. You will see the water turning it’s color.
6. Now let the tea steep for few minutes. Steep your tea for maximum time to get the best of the tea’s nutrients. Steeping is basicallya process that makes sure most nutrients become one with the water.
7. Steep for atleast 5 minutes to get the best flavor.
8. Sip on some of it and keep some for our DIYs. 🙃
Green tea toner
You will need a strong cup of Green tea. At least 2 tablespoons of Green tea. Once the tea is cooled. Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to the Green tea. Add the goodness of vitamin e oil. Store it in a spray bottle and viola your Green tea toner is ready.
Without vitamin e oil the concoction lasts for a week and with vitamin e oil it is most likely to last for two weeks.
This toner is best for oily and sensitive skin.
Green tea facial mist
This is the easiest one. Again you will need a strong cup of Green tea. Add a few drops of vitamin e oil and your facial mist is ready! Spritz it at regular intervals throughout the day for best results.
Green tea shampoo
You will need strong cup of Green tea, cooled , 1 cup of Castile soap, lavender essential oil and 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil. Add green tea and olive oil to Castile soap and only a few drops of essential oil for fragrance. The shampoo is herbal and conditions your hair thoroughly.
Green tea body spray
Make a strong cup of Green tea and cool it in your fridge. Peel half a cucumber and make it’s puree. Strain it to make sure you only have cucumber juice. Now add green tea, 1/4th of it to a spray bottle. Add 2 tablespoons of cucumber juice, few drops of essential oil and 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Shake it well before use. Store it in your refrigerator. Lasts for about a week.
So those are 4 easy-peasy beauty recipes using Green tea. Try it and let me know what you think.
If you wanna go the old school way by sipping your green tea then you should opt a green tea detox bottle. In my view you can go for Instacuppa thermos travel mug or Instacuppa’s insulated green tea detox bottle.
