This has been my favorite body scrub this summer and a staple in my shower. I love the way the scrub gently exfoliates my skin and leaves me feeling decadent and even a little bit spoiled. And the scent is just so yummy. The recipe is very simple and can be customized to your liking. For example, want to add a fruity scent to go with the cocoa? Add some sweet orange essential oil. Want a little spice? Go for a hint of cinnamon (about ¼ teaspoon).
1 cup organic golden sugar or raw sugar
1 tablespoon organic cocoa powder
½ teaspoon coconut or sweet almond oil
Tuscan olive oil
Place the sugar in a bowl and add cocoa powder. Mix well. Add coconut oil and blend. Now gently drizzle olive oil and blend until the desired paste texture forms. Store in a glass jar and try to use within a month.
