  • 3 Cups of Fine Organic Sugar

  • 15-25 drops of rosewater oil concentrate ( This is for scent)

  1. In a large bowl, mix the sugar, tea leaves, and oil. This mixture will seem light and fluffy, but if you press it together it will form a shape. You don't want too much oil, just enough to keep it fluffy and soft.
  2. Now add in about 15 or so drops of the rosewater concentrate. Start with that and if you want a stronger scent, add in 5-10 more drops.
  3. Store in a jar with a tight lid. This will keep for many weeks. If it starts to harden up, heat it up a little to use it. Once it starts hardening, that is when you need to use it up soon. Other than that, it will not go bad.

This is loose leaf green tea, but you can also cut open a green tea bag and use that. You can even use leftover tea bags once the tea has dried.
