This will last several weeks, but it is not enough to last that long after you decide you love it. I love this recipe as it makes my face very soft and the fine lines are going away. After learning about beauty recipes and what each ingredient does, it is easy to create your own recipes as I have done here. There will be more recipes to come after I have created recipes we like in our family.
- 6 ounces distilled water
- 1 teaspoon loose green tea leaves or 1 green tea bag
- 3 drops lavender oil
- 3 drops aloe vera gel
- Make a 6 ounce cup of strong green tea and let it cool. Add the 3 drops of lavender essential oil and the 3 drops of aloe vera gel and stir well with a sterile instrument. Pour into a spray bottle that has been sterilized. Shake well everytime you use it. Keep it in the refrigerator. If you feel you need something to help with keeping it fresh, add a drop of vitamin e oil to your mixture.
I love the lavender and also added Vitamin E to mine, and only made 1 ounce. Next time I'll make it with tea tree oil instead of the lavender for my acne. It smells nice and feels refreshing, but it absorbs quickly and doesn't seem to do much for my skin.
Smells lovely. I did have to omit the aloe vera gel, as I am alergic. But sprayed my face at bedtime, and loved the fresh feeling. Thnx for sharing, Chef Petra. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen Chalet Jan 2010.
Lovely nice to do before bed. relaxing and soothing. You do have to stir well the aloe likes to stay gelled. A great way to get antioxidant properties on your face.
