Green Tea Cream 2


I seem to have been focusing a little bit on the spiced tea fan club recently. Well, today I will be fixing that. Green Tea Lovers, be prepared for a fabulous journey into the test kitchen to make a cream that is to die for. We will be using Green Tea Butter, Green Tea Fragrance AND Green Tea! Waoh! Does that seem like a lot of green tea or what? 

For those of you who aren’t such big fans of green tea, don’t leave yet. This cream is worth a try. Wait until tomorrow when we make a fruity green tea. Fun and fruity packed with anti-oxidant power! Come join me in the test kitchen.

Heat in short bursts until everything is liquid. Mix well, using an immersion blender. Allow the cream to cool below 120 F before adding the Optiphen and Green Tea Fragrance Oil. Stir occasionally, preventing the cream from separating. Once the cream is cool and the preservative and fragrance oil have been added, the cream may then be moved to jars or bottles. You can now experience Green Tea Power on your skin. Enjoy!

    To replace the Squalane, I would use light oils like Colorless Jojoba, Coconut Oil Fractions or Macadamia Nut Oil.
    You may omit the Vitamin E. It is there as an antioxidant. I hope this helps.

    Best Wishes,
