So, you're going to want to eat this mint chocolate sugar scrub recipe, but try to control yourself. It's for your skin. This sugar scrub recipe smells like a Thin Mint. Enjoy it in a nice relaxing bath, perhaps when you are craving chocolate. I can't promise you that it will satisfy your sweet tooth, but worth a try, right?
Winter is in full force here in Chicago, 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, 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.
If you know someone who loves Thin Mints, surprise them with a “lucky” jar of sugar scrub for St. Patrick's Day! I mean, really, who doesn't want to bathe in their favorite dessert? 😉 PS: Am I the only one that didn't realize you can buy Thin Mints on Amazon?
