While drinking green tea is probably renown for its weight loss benefits, did you know that the topical application of green tea essential oil can also reduce fat and cellulite under the skin? Green tea essential oil has various other benefits for your skin and hair as well. Green tea oil, also known as Camellia oil or Tea Seed Oil is obtained through the process of extraction from the seeds of the Camellia sinensis plant. The green tea plant has a long history of consumption and uses in Asian countries, particularly China, Japan and India.
Green tea oil’s strong astringent, antioxidant and anti-ageing properties make it a favourite in creams, shampoos and soaps. Using green tea oil for your face will give you hydrated and clear skin. Its antioxidant properties help remove lines and wrinkles while improving skin elasticity. Its antibacterial content helps to treat acne, while as an astringent it tightens the skin. Green tea oil also reduces sebum, so it is particularly helpful for those with oily skin. The antioxidants in green tea oil also promote hair growth by nourishing hair follicles. Green tea oil for hair can also be used to make your locks soft and shiny.
Used in aromatherapy, green tea oil produces a therapeutic, soothing effect, which is also replicated in scented candles and potpourri. For more benefits of green tea oil, see the infographic below.
