Self-Care with Chado: DIY White Tea Body Soap
For this installment of our Self-Care with Chado series we are making a simple and quick diy body soap using only 3 ingredients. White tea is not only beneficial to drink, it can also be a great addition to your skin care routine. White tea can help reduce inflammation, aid in recovery from sunburn, can help repair skin damage, and help fight bacteria and acne. While using white tea alone isn’t the key to great skin, it can help and be a great addition to your daily self-care.
DIY White Tea Body Soap
15 drops of an essential oil of your choice
½ pound of cocoa butter melted
White tea of your choice, we will provide a couple of options below
In either a double broiler or the microwave, slowly melt the cocoa butter until fully melted.
Once melted, place the cocoa butter in a 4 cup measuring glass. To this measuring cup add in about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the tea of your choosing and 15 drops of an essential oil. Stir until completely combined.
Once mixed thoroughly, pour the soap mixture into the silicone mold. If you’d like you can take some of the white tea and sprinkle it on the top of the soap bars.
Allow the soaps to cool and harden in a cool, dry place. Once hardened, remove from the mold and wrap in wax or parchment paper.
Store the tea soap bars in a cool, dry place and enjoy!
