Chocolate Body Polish

This gentle exfoliating scrub will keep skin healthy look and soft. It smells great too!

½ cup Turbinado sugar*
¼ cup sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

*Turbinado sugar is raw cane sugar that still contains molasses. You can find it in the baking isle of most supermarkets.






Chocolate ~ Lavender Facial Mask

Milk and coffee contain natural acids that help to stimulate cell turnover, while lavender promotes healing and “calms” minor irritations. Note that this formula makes one application.

2 tablespoons coffee, finely ground
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 drops lavender essential oil
4 tablespoons whole milk

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl to make a thin paste. To use, spread over face and neck, but avoid the eye area. Lie down to rest for 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.





Chocolate ~ Orange Lip Balm

11/2 teaspoons pure cocoa butter, grated
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon grated dark chocolate
1-2 drops sweet orange essential oil

Place all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals until the cocoa butter is completely melted. Stir to blend well. Pour into a small tin or lip balm tube and let cool completely before using.
