Danielle’s Hot Chocolate Body Scrub Recipe
A cup of hot chocolate is the most comforting beverage for a cozy evening. And Danielle had the ingenious idea of converting it into a body scrub for an indulgent skincare ritual! Her hot chocolate body scrub recipe has chocolate rich in potent antioxidants that brighten and repair the skin. She pairs it with salt and sugar to exfoliate away the dead skin and Vitamin E and grapeseed oil to moisturize the skin. Furthermore, a few drops of vanilla essential oil enhance the comfort factor of this scrub.
To prepare the hot chocolate body scrub, add 1 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon salt, and 4 tablespoons of organic hot chocolate or cocoa powder in a jar. Secure the lid of the jar and shake it well to mix the dry ingredients together. Add 1/3 cup of grapeseed oil, 15 drops of Vitamin E oil, and a few drops of vanilla essential oil to the dry mix. Stir everything well with a spoon to get a uniform consistency. Your hot chocolate body scrub is ready!
How To Use This Body Scrub?
Danielle recommends using this hot chocolate body scrub in the shower on wet skin. You can scoop out the scrub and massage it gently on your body. Then, rinse it off with a body wash and follow up with your favorite body moisturizer. You will be greeted by soft, radiant, and supple skin!
