I had a bit of a DIY beauty day yesterday and got out all my nautral ingredients and had a mess about. I came up with a lovely jubbly after eight chocolate-mint body scrub. It smells absolutely divine!

10 tablespoons of sea salt (fine or coarse, it’s up to you!)4–6 tablespoons of sweet almond oil 2 peppermint tea bags1 tablespoon of raw cocoa powder 2 tablespoons of hot water

In a cup put one of your peppermint tea bags in a cup and cover with the hot water and leave to infuse for 4 minutes.

In the meantime mix together your salt and cocoa powder. Open up one of the peppermint teabags and add the contents to the mix.

Pour in your sweet almond oil and the peppermint tea infusion and mix well.

NB: You can add a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil if you want it more minty!

Apply the scrub to damp skin and massage in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly and pat skin dry.

This is a super simple and quick DIY beauty recipe so give it a go!
