How to Make Green Tea Sugar Scrub
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon castille soap
2-3 green tea bags
- Heat coconut oil in microwave safe container just until softened.
- Combine sugar, coconut oil, castille soap, and the contents of 2 to 3 tea bags in a medium bowl, stirring well to combine ingredients evenly.
- Transfer to an airtight glass jar.
- Add a handmade tag and ribbon to your jar if you will be giving it as a gift.
How To Use Scrub:
Massage gently over damp skin – elbows, shoulders, feet, hands, etc. Rinse well before patting dry with a towel. Use 2-3 times per week for soft, moisturized skin.
Note: Oils can make shower floor slippery, so be sure to rinse well with hot water and wipe up the shower/bath floor with a towel if needed for safety.
Bonus: You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to the sugar scrub if desired for extra scent (citrus scents like lemon and grapefruit pair really well with green tea).
