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.

  2. […]    Simple, easy and fast to make, lasts up to 6 months. With the bit of essential oil in it, you can smell like a raspberry mocha. You can also use peppermint oil, or any skin friendly scent you prefer.   So, make your own body scrub and add whatever scents you like in it. They work very well on the skin. These are not as spendy as the purchased scrubs, either. Chemical free is always a good thing, too, right? […]
