Red Grape & Blueberry Green Tea Cream 1


I had a blast making the Green Tea Cream yesterday. I couldn’t wait until I made the Red Grape & Blueberry Green Tea Cream. Fun, fruity and fabulous with a fresh green, spring time scent. Oh! So good! Now, where did I put my tea kettle? Never mind. Let’s head to the test kitchen to try this recipe out.

.4% Vitamin E Acetate
5% Squalane 

74.3% Water
.7% Optiphen
.3% Green Tea Fragrance Oil
.3% Red Grape & Blueberry Fragrance Oil

Weigh hot water into a container and allow the tea to steep. Weigh everything except for Optiphen and the fragrance oils into a microwave safe container. Add the tea to the container. 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 fragrance oils. 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 the festivity of a Red Grape & Blueberry Green Tea on your skin. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe is like the recipe yesterday. I just really whipped the snot out of it. It has a lot of air bubbles which have affected the texture. I wonder if I can talk someone into a new immersion blender. Hmm.

    Hello, I just completed one of your lotion recipes using the rose hydrosol. What fun and just what what my daughters and I were looking for. I do have have a few question before I choose another recipe and feel you can guide me in the right direction.

    1. Are your cream recipes too thick for the face and are they used primarily for the body?
    2. Is there a recipe for a green tea lotion?
    3. If using water as your base does the water make your lotions/creams heavier?
    4. Can aloe vera be subsituted for water and will the lotion/cream be just as soft, creamy, etc. I read that aloe vera is good for the skin.

    I’ve made lotions that were heavy and greasy and don’t want to do that again !!!!!
    Thank you for doing what you do and sharing with all of us. I know I am most grateful.
