DIY Mint Chocolate Sugar Scrub Recipe

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?
