It’s no surprise I love chocolate. I have said it several times over the course of this blog. 😉
Chocolate makes a great gift for your tastebuds, but also for your body. I made this wonderful chocolate-mint scrub that is so sweet and great for exfoliating your body. It is made from simple ingredients and coconut oil. Coconut oil is great for your skin because it easily absorbs into the skin for a non-greasy moisturizer, perfect for wind blown dry winter skin. I am sure it will delight anyone you give it to.
To make this easy scrub, you will need:
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups solid coconut oil
a few drops mint extract
Start by putting the oil in a bowl and melting it. You don’t want it too hot, just melted.
Add it to a mixture of sugar and cocoa powder. Mix well and then add a few drops of mint extract.
Put in a glass wide mouthed jar, slap on a label and tie with ribbon.
To use, scoop out a bit onto your hands and exfoliate. Don’t use on your face if you have sensitive skin. It should melt away in a hot shower, leaving no residue.
This is a super simple DIY Christmas gifts! I would love to get this as a gift because I really treasure homemade gifts- they are filled with love! <3
