Cranberry Green Tea Lotion

This is a thick luxurious lotion with both green tea infused and cranberry infused butters. I’ve seen the infused butter trend pick up in the last few years, I’m not sure how long it will be a trend. It’s not hard to infuse your own oils or to use extracts and oils as a replacement to the infused butters.

I like my lotions on the thick side. I made this as a plain lotion, it is unscented and smells a little bit like green tea and quite a bit like unrefined shea butter.
