Homemade Chocolate Sugar Scrub

Winter is in full force here in the Chicago area, and my skin is feeling it. I like to use a sugar scrub at least once a week to try to keep the scaly skin to a minimum.

It’s so easy to make your own scrubs, play around with ingredients, and choose them to target different skin issues.

I don’t know a lot about aromatherapy yet, but I do know that I find peppermint soothing. I like to use peppermint oil in a bath if I am overly stressed or feel a headache coming on.

I mean, really, who doesn’t want to bathe in their favorite dessert? 😉
