Whipped Green Tea + Coconut Oil Moisturizer

On my quest for great skin health I've been looking  for a great natural body moisturizer. I have very dry skin, and now that we are in fall I want to get my skin ready for winter. Like many people these days I am under the coconut oil spell and I don't want a cure!

I'm very into making my own body products lately so I opted  to make a new body moisturizer rather than purchase one. I looked online for a coconut oil based body moisturizers and I this was the easiest recipe I found and I  loved it the most. This whipped Green Tea and coconut oil moisturizer only has two simple ingredients, The coconut oil adds lots of moisture, it's a whip so it doesn't feel extra greasy, and the green tea adds a great scent, color and reverse sun damage, for a more even skin tone! 

Recipe via:

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons loose green tea

  1. Use a double boiler on medium heat to melt the coconut oil.
  2. Stir in the green tea.
  3. Cover and simmer on lowest heat setting for 1 hour.
  4. Strain tea from oil with cheesecloth.
  5. Let cool until almost solid.
  6. Then whip until creamy, 3-5 minutes.
