This DIY green tea scrub is super quick to whip together. It’s an inexpensive spa treatment and bonus—you very likely have everything needed in your pantry for this fabulous body scrub!
Start with the content from 2 green tea bags (or any other flavor you have on hand or prefer), 1 cup white sugar and ½ to ¾ cup of soft or melted coconut oil (You can use more or less depending on how dry or oily you prefer the consistency to be. I like how exfoliating a dry rub style scrub can be and tend to use less coconut oil).
Optional: I added about a tablespoon of freeze dried edamame beans that I ground in the blender. Totally optional, just gave the scrub a nice color-that is totally natural. I picked up a bag of them for a couple dollars-that we do usually eat, at Target, but you can find them online as well.
Thoroughly stir all of the ingredients together or toss into the blender or mixer and whip together in seconds. Store in an air tight container until you’re ready to use it.
DIY green tea scrub: What makes it special?
This DIY green tea scrub removes dirt and impurities from your skin, leaving a healthy and beautiful glow. Green tea is a wonderful anti-inflammatory that helps soothe blemishes and scars.
If you’re a fan of sugar scrubs you’re going to absolutely adore how this easy, DIY green tea scrub recipe makes your skin feel. Seriously, it’s a winner.
As always, take extra care if using our DIY green tea scrub in the shower, as the coconut oil will make the floor slippery. Same goes for the bath if you’ll be using it there or soaking in it. Rinse off all the way and pat dry (rubbing will remove the hydrating coconut oil, you can leave this on as it will nicely moisturize and protect your skin).
