There are many effective moisturizers on the market, however some contain undesirable preservatives, artificial fragrances and dyes. Those that have all natural ingredients have a way of also being expensive. When you make your own lotions and creams, you can use all natural ingredients, choosing from a wide variety of oils, butters, herbs, essential oils and liquids to make a product that suits your specific tastes and needs. Green tea moisturizer is made from oils that hold moisture in your skin, aloe vera that draws moisture from the air, green tea which is rich in antioxidants and essential oils which are natural fragrances.
Combine the grated beeswax, coconut oil and grapeseed oil in a small saucepan and melt over low heat. Pour the melted oils and wax into a mixing bowl and let them cool completely.
Make an infusion with the green tea and simmering water. Let it steep for 5 minutes. Strain through a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Allow it to cool.
Use the immersion blender to blend the oils while slowing pouring in the tea and aloe vera gel. Continue blending until the mixture is thick and creamy. Add a few drops of essential oil for fragrance at the end of the mixing process.
Scrape the cream into a container with the spatula.
