Natural at Home Spa Treatments: Chocolate Honey Body Scrub

Chocolate Honey Scrub recipe┬áby the National Honey Board and Christopher Watt Esthetics – 2 cups honey (100 percent pure is best) 1/2 cup grapeseed oil 6 Tbl. grated unsweetened chocolate (or dry cocoa powder) 2 cups kosher salt.

In a rubber mixing bowl, combine honey and grapeseed oil. Stir in chocolate and salt, mixing completely. Consistency should be grainy and thick. Apply scrub to your skin and gently massage all over your body. Remove with warm, damp towels or rinse off in shower. Makes two treatments.

Beauty Benefit: The rough texture of the salt exfoliates the skin while increasing circulation and ridding the body of toxins. Honey provides a moisturizing effect and fights damaging free radicals, as does cocoa, which contains antioxidants.
