Tea-rific Treatments

Tea has proven its staying power! Research shows the multiple health benefits you get from drinking a cup of green, black, chamomile, peppermint, etc.

Along with its inner beauty, teas can help with your outer beauty too!

For some outer uses, try out these at-home tea recipes:

For hair:

To add shine and bounce to a drab do, try a tea rinse. Blondies use chamomile, brunettes use black tea, and reds use an orange tea.

Boil around 2 cups of water and add 2 bags of your tea and let them sit for about 10 minutes.

Shampoo and condition your hair, then add your tea treatment.

Leave the tea in for 10 minutes then rinse with luck-warm water.

Towel dry, then style.

To keep hair looking holiday ready, use the rinse once a week.

For feet:

The holiday season is here. It comes earlier and earlier ever year. Get your feet in tip-top perfection so they won't betray you in the checkout line.

To rejuvenate tired feet and easy into shopping mode try a peppermint tea foot soak.

Brew a strong cup of peppermint tea and to a bowl of hot water. Add you favorite salt or soak (Scandle's Dead Sea Salt Soak and Scrub is perfect because it is odorless, no funny scent combinations) and relax.
