You know I had to try it….
a Chocolate Sugar Scrub!
It’s chocolate-y…and I like it!
I hope you are not sick of these sugar scrubs! I am having a lot of fun experimenting with some different combinations. They make fun gifts and…well…its that time of year!
One of the best things about this gift is the potential for cute packaging…and you KNOW how much I love gifts in a jar! Jars just make everything cute. I get asked a lot about how I attach my bottle labels. I simply print them out on my laser printer (or you can print them at a copy shop) onto white cardstock. Then I cut them out and paste them onto the bottle with a simple glue stick. This works really well and is fast an easy! You can print them on sticker paper if you want, but I find that to be a lot more expensive.
Many of you have asked in the past about where I find my jars. So I thought I would share it here with all of you. I find a lot of cute bottles at Hobby Lobby and they have them on sale for half price a lot of the time. This particular jar was $1.50 on sale. I also LOVE using Starbucks Frappuccino Bottles too! Those are the ones I use most frequently and I am lucky to have a friend who gives me them when she is done with them.
Chocolate Sugar Scrub Recipe:
1/2 cup Raw Cane Sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp. cocoa baking powder
*don’t add more cocoa unless doubling…it will turn your skin brown ;)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
chocolate shavings from bakers chocolate square (optional)
a few drops of Vitamin E oil (optional)
*If you want to spice it up you can add some orange, peppermint or cinnamon essential oils for a fun twist. I did not do that for this recipe.
Mix together the sugars and cocoa in a bowl. Slowly add the oil until you have your desired consistency. I prefer mine to be drier than oily. But of course you can make it to your likes. Add the vanilla and Vitamin E if desired and stir all together until combined. Store in an airtight jar or container. Should last for up to 3 months.
If you make it…let me know what you think! I love getting feedback from you guys. It helps me know what other projects to work on that you might be interested in!
