How to use Tea in soap

      All natural handcrafted soap made with fresh brewed tea,  sweet meyer lemon and honey !

Tea is prized for it's healthy benefits, why not try it in a beauty bar?
If  you make your own soap, you simply use fresh brewed tea for the liquid in your recipe.

HOW:  Make a strong brew of tea, and freeze it in ice cube trays.
When measuring out your liquid for your soap, use your frozen tea instead measuring just as you would for liquid.  Pour your lye crystals right into your tea cubes and stir until melted and all lye is dissipated into the tea.

I also add 1 -2 TBL of warmed honey at light trace while stick blending. Honey adds it's natural humectant benefits to your beauty bar. Honey and tea are both antibacterial making this a lovely cleansing soap for troubled skin. 

Tea and honey in homemade soap make a great facial bar as well as body bar.
Add sweet meyer lemon, or lemongrass for scent and you have an awesome fresh smelling beauty bar.

Enjoy,   Anna
