Video: Recipe – How to Combine Green Tea + Geranium + Potato Extract for a Great Under-Eye Treatment
Here’s one of my favorite essential oil recipes to refresh skin under your eyes. Why does this natural formula work so well? Because we’re (naturally) extracting the organic healing power of; green tea, potato extract and geranium oil (or essential oil of your choice). According to WebMD.com, potato can have several skincare benefits around the eye. Here’s what to do (see video & detailed recipe, below);
You will need:
- 2 organic green tea bags (opened), or equivalent loose-leaf green tea
- 1/2 potato (to extract liquid)
- organic coconut oil
- organic almond oil
- geranium, cypress, pomegranate seed (or other essential oil of your choice)
Heat pan of water to boiling. While you’re waiting, grate 1/2 a potato and extract liquid from the potato (as shown in the video)
Add potato liquid to bowl (placed in pan, above boiling water). Next, add the loose green tea to the potato liquid. Then, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to the bowl, plus add 1 teaspoon of almond oil. Mix and heat on low (with water around boiling) for around 8 minutes.
Remove oil mixture from heat & allow to cool. Pour oil mixture into container and add either; geranium, cypress or pomegranate seed oil (all are good pro-aging oils) or your favorite pro-aging essential oil to the cooled mixture.
Place around the eye at evening-time (this is an intensive care therapy, not something to wear during daytime with makeup). The infused oil should keep for 3-5 days at room temperature and 7-10 days refrigerated).
