Chocolate Sugar Scrub
Caution! If you are not quick enough to slather this all over your body, you’ll end up eating it! Yes, that’s how delicious it looks and smells!
Imagine the scent of organic coconut oil and cocoa powder combined – irresistible! To be honest, when I made this scrub, I wasn’t really sure whether I should it use to exfoliate my body, or I should add some flour and make cookies.
Note: I didn’t have sweet almond oil at hand, but I am sure it will turn out even better if you add it, like the author suggests.

Rosemary Lemon Salt Scrub
I am kinda bias here, because I am addicted to rosemary. And because I am addicted to rosemary, I wanted to intensify the scent of the scrub and added some rosemary essential oil, apart from the springs. Rosemary essential oil is believed to boost immunity, relieve stress and alleviate headache – 3 good reasons to love it, don’t you think?
*Olive oil can be replaced with any oil of your choice, just make sure it is cold-pressed and organic.
Note: If you have sensitive skin, I’d recommend skipping the lemon juice (add only the zest), because the juice can irritate the skin.
