It’s Valentine’s Day – a day about LOVE! Whether it’s a significant other, a best friend, family or even your pet, Valentine’s Day is a day to appreciate everyone you love in your life – including yourself! So how can you show yourself a little love today? Give your body a refreshing boost with a DIY Chocolate Scrub.

Here’s what you’ll need!

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup cane sugar

½ cup solid coconut oil

⅓ cup canola (or almond) oil

2.5 tablespoons cocoa powder

A few drops of essential oil(s) (optional)

Directions: Add all ingredients together in a large bowl and mix until combined. Use the scrub on your body and wash it off.

Want to add in essential oils? We recommend Juniper Berry. This essential oil has a crisp, sweet scent with a hidden fruity note (chocolate covered strawberry scrub anyone?) Juniper Berry uses include toxin build-up, cellulitis, and acne.

Don’t use this scrub on your face; sugar granules are too harsh for the delicate, thin skin on the face. You can store the scrub in an airtight container at room temperature.
