Whipped Green Tea + Coconut Oil Moisturizer

Whipped Green Tea + Coconut Oil Moisturizer | HelloNatural.coShark Tank is one of my favorite shows. It gives hope to the dream that one day I’ll invent something super duper and go on to fame and fortune. That thought usually comes to me when I have my hand crammed down my jar of coconut oil, wishing I had a Spatty Daddy. (Does getting your hand stuck in a jar bode well for grand inventions? Probably not.)

Having scraped out every last bit of coconut oil, it was time to whip up a replacement. A gallon-sized Costco tub is better for hand access but not so much for a tiny bathroom. Which brings us to a perfectly good invention: green lotion. Something that’s totally awesome for your skin.

Whipped Green Tea + Coconut Oil Moisturizer | HelloNatural.coYou might remember green-tea infused oil from this SPF lip balm. I love this stuff. You get the benefits of coconut oil and green tea all in one. A coconut oil moisturizer hydrates without clogging pores, and green tea can actually reverse sun damage. Whipping it makes a nice frothy texture that’s easier to apply and feels less greasy (if that bothers you). And did I mention that it’s green? No it won’t turn your skin green, but it does make me smile every time I see it.

    Is it possible to use bag green tea instead? Then you wouldn’t have to strain it out… or you could just take the leaves out of the bags?

      I used a tea bag for this and it turned out fine. Mine was not as deep green, but I am sure that is simply because I should have used a few more tea bags. I only used 2 for about 2 cups of oil, should have used 4.
