Earl Grey Tea Cucumber Body Spray

Fall is here to stay, and with it comes cooler air and nipping breezes to chap and damage skin.

 

So today, I'm doing a different kind of recipe! Why not put the antioxidants in tea to work for you in a different way and wear it! This is a fresh calming body spray made with aloe, cucumbers, and tea that will help smooth and repair wind blown or sun damaged skin as the weather gets cooler.

This would be a fantastic gift idea this winter with a cute label and recipe card!

 

Any tea will work for this, but I chose to go with Star Crossed for a delicate earl grey scent with hints of mint and blueberry -- yum!

 

 Earl Grey Cucumber Body Spray

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp of tea (I used Star Crossed)
  • Half of a cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
  • Small spray bottle

 Directions:


Brew 4 ounces of tea, using 1 tbsp of leaf (for an extra strong cup) to 4 oz water. Once steeped, pop that in the refrigerator to cool. Peel and puree half of a cucumber. Strain and discard solids.

Once the tea has cooled, add 2-4 ounces of tea to the cucumber juice. Add 1-2 tbsp aloe vera gel. Whisk or shake to combine. Store in the refrigerator.

Lasts about 10 days.
