Green Tea for the Win
Natural ingredients are perfect for DIY bath and body products. Green tea has so many health benefits that it’s something we’ve just started incorporating into our routine here on Ruffles and Rain Boots.
Recently, we shared these matcha green tea bath bombs. They are easy to make, fun, and are even a great gift idea. Even if that gift is to yourself! :)
Supplies for this Matcha Green Tea Sugar Scrub
Because we make all of our own bath products here on Ruffles and Rain Boots, we’re sharing all of our favorite supplies in our Amazon Shop. Click to see all the goodies.
- 1 cup clear glycerin soap base
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cup shea butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 10-15 drops cedarwood, geranium, and bergamot essential oils (or any oils of your choosing)
- 1-2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder (we love this stuff for smoothies, too)
- silicon mold (you can use any but we like these molds)
How to Make Green Tea Sugar Scrub Solids
Making solid sugar scrubs is just slightly different from their powdered counterpart.
- Put the soap base, coconut oil, and shea butter in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 30-second intervals.
- Add essential oils and matcha green tea powder. Stir well.
- Add in the sugar and still until a thick paste has formed. Spoon it into the molds – press firmly – and let it sit for a minimum of 2 hours. Tip: we usually leave ours overnight. Store in an airtight container.
How to Use Solid Sugar Scrubs
Remove 1 or 2 from an airtight container. Gently crush them in your hands – you don’t need to crush them completely.
Massage the mixture over your skin in a small, circular motion. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
Note: if you’re gifting these, include a note with the instructions for use above.
