orange, cocoa and vanilla body polish

Sea salt exfoliates, while sweet almond oil and honey nourishes and soothes dry skin. The fragrance of orange essential oil and vanilla are wonderful together!

3/4 cup fine sea salt
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 cup sweet almond oil
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
20 drops sweet orange essential oil

Place the sea salt and cocoa powder in a bowl; stir to combine. Slowly add the oil, then the honey, while stirring. Add the essential oil and stir again. Scoop into clean glass jars with lids and label. To use, gently massage a small amount onto wet skin using a circular motion with fingertips. Rinse well with warm water.
