Many Uses For Matcha Green Tea

Matcha Green Tea Coconut Sugar Scrub

 

Matcha Green Tea has many health benefits but top on the list is being a super antioxidant. Antioxidants are chemical compounds that help prevent aging, chronic diseases plus fights infections.  Being almost calorie free,  Matcha Green Tea helps with weight loss by boosting your metabolism and it burns fat.  If you are looking for a healthy way to detox your body, Matcha Green Tea is your answer. There are many uses for Matcha Green Tea but my favorite is Matcha Green Tea Coconut Sugar Scrub.

 

 

 

I like the tin container that comes with LukHealthy Matcha Tea.  With the screw on top, the tea stays fresh for the recommended use of 30 days.

 

 

 

Since Matcha Green Tea is strong, you only need a small amount when making a cup of hot tea.  I suggest starting with a very small amount and add to your liking. If you use too much, your tea will be bitter.  It’s also great in smoothies, lattes and baking. But my favorite is making Matcha Green Tea Coconut Sugar Scrubs.  Not only do the antioxidants work on the inside of your body, it also works on your skin, slowing the aging process, reducing wrinkles and leaving your skin soft and smooth plus smelling like fresh coconut.

 

 

 

This is my recipe for Matcha Green Tea Coconut Sugar Scrub, it only takes four ingredients.   When mixing the ingredients, I never use metal, I use a glass mixing bowl and wooden spoon to mix the ingredients.

 

1 cup Coconut Oil

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon Matcha Green Tea powder

3 -4 drops of lemon essential oil (or your favorite flavor)

 

 

 

Add the coconut oil to the bowl and mix until smooth and there are no lumps.

Add the granulated sugar and continue mixing until the coconut oil and sugar are well blended.

 

Add the Matcha Green Tea powder to the mixture and carefully mix this up. I start out slowly until the dry powder is blended then whip it with the wooden spoon, again to make sure there aren’t any lumps in the sugar scrub.

I don’t always put essential oils but when I do, I start with a few drops at a time, mixing well.  I like using lemon or orange essential oil but you can use your favorite oil.

 

 

 

After my Matcha Green Tea Coconut Sugar Scrub made, I store it in 4 ounce containers with a tight top.  When using your Sugar Scrub,  just scoop a small amount from the jar and rub it on your face and neck. Don’t get scared and think you are turning into the Incredible Hulk when your face turns green, it washes off!  I let it stay on my face a few minutes and I can immediately feel my skin begin to tingle. It smells so good and rinses off easily but if you use a white wash cloth, it will turn green.  My skin is soft and smooth, not to mention how great it smells.

    I have this – had no idea I can turn it into a scrub.

    I think I will try this now.

  2. Yum!!!! Thanks for this easy recipe filled with great ingredients. I would be tempted to swap a citrus essential oil for one that benefits the skin, like lavender, rose, frankincense or chamomile. There are others, of course. But as you suggest, play with the oil if adding it.

  3. LadyInRead says:

    will try this out.. bought myself a pack of matcha tea and liked it but not too much so now need to find other uses for it than drinking it:)

  4. Martha says:

    Thanks for visiting Carol. This smells so good!

  5. Martha says:

    It’s very quick and easy Sumudu. Let me know what you think about it if you make some. Thanks for stopping by .

  6. Martha says:

    I usually add lavender in my sugar scrubs but for some reason, I think of lemon when drinking tea so that’s why I decided on lemon. Every time I make a batch, I experiment with other oils. I was thinking about the frankincense also. That will be my next one! If you make a batch, I’d love to know how you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Martha says:

    I’m not crazy about drinking it for an everyday tea but it is good for detox. I also found that it’s not a “sipping” tea, it’s better to drink it up quick so it doesn’t settle in the bottom. Let me know if you make the scrub! Thanks for visiting LadyInRead!

  8. Paul Taubman says:

    Wow! I have been seeing Matcha Green Tea more and more these days. Something tells me that I might have to try it out!

    While I am a coffee drinker, I can still enjoy a nice cup of tea from time to time.

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. I love green tea. I had no idea you could do so much with it.

  11. Martha says:

    Have you had Matcha green tea or regular green tea Brenda? The Matcha is way more potent so you don’t need much. Try the sugar scrub, it’s amazing! thanks for stopping by.

  12. Martha says:

    I love how my skin feels after using the scrub Bushra. Try it and let me know what you think! I get you back. Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Martha says:

    There are so many health benefits in Matcha Green Tea, more so than just regular green tea Paul. While it is a bit bitter, you only need a small amount and the secret is to drink it quickly so the sediment doesn’t settle to the bottom. It’s definitely not a “sipping” tea. Thanks for stopping by!
