Pampering You

13 Jun

Two of my favorite things are coffee and chocolate. Here are 2 recipes I have on file for personal pampering using those 2 ingredients. I have no idea where they came from (I didn’t invent them), so if they’re your original concoctions, claim your fame in my comments section, and a big THANK YOU from me, because I’ve been enjoying the pampering.

Coffee Scrub:

  • 2 cups of coffee grounds
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar (sea salt works)
  • 2/3 tablespoon of sweet almond oil (or any other massage oil)

Mix all together and enjoy the rejuvenating effects of caffeine. You can also add cinnamon or vanilla for some added aromatherapy or brown sugar if you want the mixture to be more coarse and sweet smelling.

Cocoa Bath Milk:

  • 1 c cocoa powder
  • 1 c. powdered milk
  • 1 capful of peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Mix all and add to warm bath. Mmmmm…..Chocolate!

If you’re in the mood for more chocolate immersion and want to spend some money on yourself, check out the great chocolate spa packages at The Spa at Hotel Hershey.

Send the hubby with the kids to Hershey Park, Hershey’s Chocolate World, or Zoo America and submit yourself to some chocolate decadence. Ahhh……
