• 2 tbsp powdered chocolate (we use Grenadian Cocoa Powder)
• 1 tbsp coffee grounds
• 4 tbsp brown sugar
• ¼ cup coconut oil
• 2 drops of essential oil (mint works well)

This treatment is best applied in the shower. Scrub on to dry skin paying attention to the legs and arms. Rinse off with warm water without using any soap. Pat your skin dry and apply coconut oil or your favorite moisturizer to nourish the skin after the scrub. This exfoliator can be stored in a jar for up to 2 weeks.
