Today you get an awesome Rooibus (red tea) body lotion recipe worthy of the goddesses that spend time here. If you haven’t done so, be sure and check Red Tea, White Tea, Green Tea: A Comparison. Once you read that, you’ll understand the why of this recipe.
Red Tea Lotion
1 tsp Aloe Vera gel
1 tsp Coconut oil
1 tsp Beeswax
1 tsp Cocoa butter
½ tsp glycerin
¼ cup steeped Rooibus tea
¼ cup jojoba oil (I prefer Camellia oil, but it’s harder to come by.)
10 drops cosmetic grade fragrance oil or essential oil (optional)
Add cocoa butter to 1 cup microwavable glass container and melt in microwave for 20 seconds. Continue warming at 10 second intervals until cocoa butter is melted. Blend in almond oil, beeswax and coconut oil. Set aside to cool. In a separate bowl, mix together water, aloe Vera and glycerin. Slowly add the oil mixture a small amount at a time into the tea mixture as you whisk. Once mixed, add the fragrance oil and pour into a 6 to 8 ounce pump container or clean lotion container. Your lotion is ready to use.
Now go have fun and relax.
