Product Information

Although there are many legends about the discovery of tea, what is known for certain is that tea in its greenest and most natural form was discovered in China about 5,000 years ago.

Unprocessed green tea leaves were used in Chinese medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including digestive problems, headaches, body aches, and weak immune systems.

It was also used to improve overall well-being and life expectancy. For centuries, green tea was the only form of tea. The cultivation of green tea gradually spread to other Asian countries.

To achieve the maximum therapeutic values of green tea for the skin and hair, it is imperative to ensure that the integrity of the plant's nutrients are preserved. Fortunately, there are various ways to incorporate green tea as an additive in personal care products.

The best way to take advantage of green tea in skin and hair care products is to incorporate it into formulas in extract form. In this way, the true essence of the green tea leaves can be harnessed. The best natural solvents for the extraction method are carrier oils, such as olive, sunflower, and jojoba or vegetable glycerine.

To make your herbal extract, all you need to do is place some green tea leaf into a glass jar (with lid), do not pack it in, just loosely until the jar is full. Pour in either your carrier oil or glycerine until the jar is almost full and place the lid on tightly. Now shake the jar for about 10 seconds. Label your jar with the date and what it is. Leave the jar to sit for 3 weeks, shaking every day. (shaking will prevent mould growing on your herbs). After 3 weeks you will need to filter out all of your solid matter. You can do this using a kitchen strainer lined with two to three layers of Chux. If any solid matter has passed through the Chux, you will need to re-filter your extract.

Now that you have made your own green tea extract, it can be used in a wide variety of skin care products, including cleansers, toners, serums, creams, masks, and exfoliants; it can also be used in hair cleansers and conditioners.
