Better than Chocolate Body Scrub

Get a cocoa kick from this chocolate body scrub.

Legend has it that the great Mayan Emperor Montezuma tossed back some 50 cups of chocolate a day. My question is: What did he have for dessert? Today, the good news about chocolate, especially the dark variety, just keeps on coming. Not only does it kick up the feel-good juices in our brains, but chocolate is loaded with anti-aging vitamins and minerals. Plus, the caffeine in cocoa is said to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Bring on the cocoa!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup powered cocoa
  • a few drops of chocolate and/or raspberry fragranced oil

Here’s what you do:

Combine ingredients in a bowl. Use whenever cravings hit by massaging into skin and rinsing with warm water in the shower. Store in an airtight container up to six months.
