This invigorating body scrub is packed with antioxidants and smells divine thanks to fresh mint and cocoa powder.
Choco-Mint Body Scrub with Fresh Mint
- 10-15 leaves organic fresh mint, coarsely chopped
- 2/3 cup (170ml) organic raw sugar
- 2 tbs (30ml) organic grapeseed oil
- 2 tbs (30ml) organic cocoa powder
- Combine all ingredients.
Fresh mint is much more than a garnish for your cocktail – this powerful herb infuses homemade beauty products with anti-acne properties and helps to slough off dead skin cells thanks to its salicylic acid content.
Raw sugar really is nature’s exfoliant – its fine grains will gently polish your skin before dissolving, no need to worry about blocking the shower drain!
Grapeseed oil is a lightly moisturizing carrier oil that contributes to the smooth texture and spreadability of your homemade body care products.
Cocoa powder is packed with antioxidants that fight aging and free radicals, and studies show that just smelling cocoa powder can give our brains a boost of happiness similar to eating chocolate!
TIP: Always remember to patch test any skin care product or ingredient before using a large amount – your skin matters!
