Yields: Four 4x20ml jars
Four 4x20ml Jars
340gm Shea Butter
20gm Green Tea Butter (optional) or coconut oil or any other butter
8gm Green Tea Extract
5ml Matcha Tea Latte or any Green Tea Fragrance Oil
28gm Corn flour (optional)
3gm Optiphen (optional)
Add the shea butter to a large mixing bowl. Using a hand blender or stand mixer, whip the butter on medium speed for 1-2 minutes until it’s fluffy and smooth. Periodically scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
Add the Green Tea Butter (or alternative) to the shea butter. Turn the mixer on medium and whip the two together until they’re completely smooth
Add the Green Tea Fragrance Oil (and the Optiphen if you’re using it) to the bowl. Blend on low so the oil doesn’t splatter out of the bowl and then gradually increase the speed to medium.
Add the arrowroot powder OR corn flour. Hand stir the powder until it’s mostly mixed in.
Blend for another 1-2 minutes to fully incorporate all the ingredients. Spoon the butter evenly into jars and enjoy!

DIY Green Tea Body Butter is packed full of green-tea goodness. The base is shea butter, which has a soft texture that’s perfect for whipping.
Then the Green Tea Butter is added. This new butter gives the body butter a light green color and antioxidant properties.
For extra antioxidant power, a dash of green tea extract is whipped into the butter.
Once all the ingredients are mixed, arrowroot powder or corn flour helps reduce the greasy feel of the butter.
That being said, because this is made with only oils and butters, it does have a heavier, oilier feel than a lotion
Because this butter does not contain any water, it does not require a preservative.
