Author: Patricia Conte


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup almond oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil
  • A glass container with a lid to store any leftovers


  • In a large bowl, add the brown sugar, white sugar, and cocoa powder. Mix them together.
  • Add the almond oil, and peppermint essential oil, and mix until well combined.
  • Transfer the mixture to a wide-mouth container with a secure lid.
  • Use in the shower or bath, while your body is wet. Scoop up some of the scrub with your fingers and gently massage it over your arms, legs and shoulders in a circular motion.
  • Rinse well when finished.


It’s always best to test skincare products before using them. Test the scrub on your inner arm, where you skin is more sensitive, to help ensure you can tolerate the ingredients. Wet your arm slightly before applying the scrub.If you’re pregnant, you should not use essential oils.
