Iced Tea

Iced Tea is simple to make and makes a refreshing, lower sugar beverage option for warmer days.

3 cups of water with 3 teaspoons of loose jasmine green tea and 1 teaspoon of peppermint tea (both from WP) brewed in a pot then strained into a jug with 1 cup sugar (adjust to taste), 5 cups cold water and 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice. Serve over ice and garnish with mint leaves and lemon wedges.

Cinnamon lip scrub

Lip scrubs are fast becoming a skincare staple! Using a lip scrub will help you get rid of the flakes and old dead skin cells and improve the texture and appearance of your skin. Exfoliating your lips properly will allow the moisture from lip balms to actually get in there and penetrate the skin instead of sitting on top of a flaked mess. So to get the most hydration out of your lip balm, make sure you exfoliate first!

Ingredients

➭ 2 tsp cinnamon powder

➭ 1 tbs of honey ( or you can use aloe vera)

➭ 1 tbs olive or coconut oil

➭ 4 tbsp brown or raw sugar

Method

Mix all the ingredients until they form a grainy paste. You can make the scrub courser or softer depending on the liquid to sugar ratio, to suit your needs. Store in an airtight container 😁
