For Valentine's Day, I'm making some Chocolate Sugar Scrub.  It is quick and easy, and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry right now.



Ingredients:
5 Tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar (I used brown sugar here)
1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil)

Mix ingredients together, and put in jars.  *To Use: Rub a small amount onto skin and rinse. Do remember that oils make a bath/shower slippery.

....looked so lushly serene in first pic that I wanted to show that scrubbiness...


You could add essential oils and scents like cinnamon, mint, almond, ginger to change it up a bit.

Hope you find this useful!  ENJOY! Grin

I think I'm going to go try this right now! I haven't added cocoa to my scrubs yet, but my scrub is getting dangerously low! I usually mix cinnamon, honey (we have tons of it... Related to someone with a bee farm... So using it in everything is okay hahah!) white sugar, and olive oil together. I'll probably just add a bunch of cocoa to it!

I can't wait to make some of this.  Hopefully I can find some mint essential oil so it'll smell like mint chocolate!

So I got a nice glass jar just like yours and had my scrub in it. Well, that lasted about 6 months before I dropped it in the shower. I'm so sad. I'll just have to go back to using a small tupperware... I don't ever add essential oils to mine, so I can use plastic at least.

I am very tempted to eat this... I'm sure a teaspoon of essential oils won't send me to hospital. I want to make this, I think I might add some coconut oil to the mix too.. Thanks for the recipe  Grin
