Introduction: All Natural Chocolate Body Scrub

If you've had a tough day and need some invigorating, or if you simply want healthy skin, making this completely natural body scrub--infused with chocolate-- is sure to be a success.

This is very simple to make and easy to store.

Step 1: Ingredients

-1 cup raw sugar
-2 1/2 Tbs cocoa powder
-1/4 cup raw oats
-2 Tbs honey
-1/8 tsp vanilla
-2 tsp olive oil
-a healthy dash of cinnamon

Step 2: Beneficial Properties of Ingredients

Some ingredients in this recipe have certain properties that are beneficial to healthy skin.

Cocoa is full of antioxidants and remove many dead skin cells.

Oatmeal is an exfoliator that has a nice effect on skin.

Honey and olive oil both help to soften and moisturize skin.

Vanilla is said to help relax people.

Step 3: Grind Oats

The oats are going to need to be ground into a fine powder. Use a small food processor or blender to grind all the oats.

Below are before and after pictures.

Step 4: Mix Ingredients

Mix sugar, cocoa powder, oats, honey, and vanilla. The result should be a mostly light brown powder.

Then add olive oil to make a pasty substance. Add the cinnamon.

Note: Clumps will appear naturally, but if clumps become too large, use the back of a spoon to get rid of them.


Step 5: You're Done!

The body scrub is finished! Store in container of your choice. (I chose a salad cruet with a fairly large spout.)

Keep refrigerated if you want it to be cool when applied to skin. It works best on wet skin, or in the shower.

    Hi, what do you mean by vanilla? Like Vanilla pods or will Vanilla extract do?

    Vanilla extract will work great!

    Any idea how long this will keep at room temp without going bad?

    These ingredients shouldn't go bad quickly, but the scrub will probably lose its "freshness" within a couple of weeks.

    Hey! Im doing a project in my school! can you please tell me the clear step in doing this? thank you!

    Hi--
    I'm not sure what you mean. I'll do my best to answer your question if you could be a little more specific.

    I like the chocolate idea! Very creative!!

    Awesome! I made this for someone and put it in a pint jar. Your recipe make 1/2 pint, so it filled up exactly. Thanks!

    Also, mine came out chunky, so I put the whole thing back into the food processor and chopped it up a bit and that fixed it.

    Oh, thanks for trying it! I'm glad it came out well. And thanks for the tip about "chunki-ness" :).

    Hi. I have been trying for some time to find out how to DEHULL the oats before use. Any ideas? After all, this was being done for thousands of years before the invention of dehulling machines...
