Make Your Own Chocolate Body Scrub
Pamper yourself with this chocolate that won’t cause you to gain a pound.
You’ll get some scratchy texture from this exfoliating salt scrub, which should be followed by a warm rinse for a lingering, silky texture on the skin. You’ll find the oils for this recipe in health food stores. For a less expensive version, use either almond or jojoba oil (instead of both).
Makes 21/2 cups scrub
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup cocoa nibs
2 tablespoons unsweetened
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup sweet almond oil
1/2 cup jojoba oil
2 tablespoons vitamin E oil
Use a food processor or blender to grind the oats into a powder. Add the cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, salt, almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil. Hit pulse a few times to blend.
Store in a glass or plastic jar, and scoop out for use with a spoon or a seashell.
