Concoct your very own soothing body butter, sure to help your skin through the transition into the fall season!
It's that time of year again. The colors are changing, cooler weather is finally upon us, and our skin is taking a beating. It's around this time of year that our skin may start to feel tighter and itchy. The dryer weather can bring about some trying times for our skin.
Luckily, we here at Catalyst Tea Company have put our very own tea spin on this body butter recipe, which uses our Inner Glow herbal tea blend. The blend is a mixture of nettle leaf, thyme leaf, calendula flowers, whole rosehips, rose petals, and marshmallow root. Not only does this brew taste great, but the blend is also perfect for the skin. The calendula flowers and rose petals are incredibly moisturizing and also act as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Herbal Body Butter
You Will Need:
Medium-sized cooking pot
2 1/2 Cups of water
4TBLS. Coconut oil
3/4 of a cup of Inner Glow herbal tea blend
1TBLS. Candelilla wax
2TBLS. Shea butter
Glass jar or tin
In a medium-sized pot add water and heat on a medium flame until the water simmers. Then reduce to low heat and add in your Inner Glow tea and coconut oil. Let that mixture warm for 10 minutes.
Strain your oil and herbal blend and set it aside.
You will then melt your shea butter and candelilla wax. You may do this by placing the wax and butter in a heat-safe bowl and melting it over a water bath. Stirring periodically to help the process along.
Once your candelilla wax and shea butter are fully melted, remove from heat and add in your coconut oil and Inner Glow tea mixture.
Pour the final mixture into a tin or glass jar for cooling and wait until it has solidified before using.
