Mint Chocolate Body Scrub

Hey guys!! I often try to make my own body scrubs and I figured that I'd share how I make my Mint Chocolate Body Scrub, it's really easy and it will leave your skin feeling extra smooth, I promise.

Here's what you'll need:

Ingredients:                                                                       Tools:

1 1/3 cups Brown Sugar                                                                       8 oz. plastic jar
1/4 cup Chocolate Powder                                                                  1 mixing bowl
1/4 cup Honey                                                                                      1 mixing spoon
2 tbsp Olive Oil                                                                                      measuring cups
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tbsp Vitamin E Oil
1 tbsp Monoi de Tahiti Oil
10 - 15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Now you're more than welcome to change or add your favourite oils to the mix just to personalize it... this recipe is not set in stone so have fun with it and make it your own!!!

How To:

1. Mix the brown sugar, chocolate powder and honey in you mixing bowl until everything is well combined.

Honey, Brown Sugar & Chocolate Powder combined

2. Add your carrier oils (Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Monoi de Tahiti Oil) there after and make sure that everything is well combined as well.

3. Add your Peppermint Essential Oil last then gently fold it into the mixture.

4. Depending on how you made your mixture, it's always good to test it out first. You can do so by wetting the back of you hand and massage it in, just to see if you need to add anything else. TIP: If your scrub feels a little too oily, add a little extra of the dry ingredients (sugar and chocolate powder) to balance it out.

5. Once you're satisfied with the scrub you can now place your mixture into your jar (mine is a plastic jar that I purchased from From Nature With Love) and top it off with a few extra drops of Peppermint Oil and you're done!!!

How To Use:

Make sure that your skin is properly cleansed before usage. Apply the scrub to your damp skin, preferably after you've taken a shower. Gently massage your entire body, especially those ruff spots like your elbows and knees. Rinse thoroughly and pat your skin dry.You can even use this twice a week if you like.


Honey: moisturizing, natural anti-oxidant & anti-microbial properties, great for acne
Chocolate: great for moisturizing and has anti-oxidant properties
Peppermint Oil: leaves an invigorating, refreshing feeling
Carrier Oils: good for psoriasis and eczema, very moisturizing
Brown Sugar: great natural exfoliant

Have a great days guys and let us know how your body scrub works out for you!!
