I have a really simple and easy to make home-made chocolate masque recipe just in time for Valentine’s day! I know of  reputable skin product companies that have pretty pricey chocolate masques in their line. This one will only cost a few penny’s on the dollar to make.

Here’s the recipe:

1. 1 Tablespoon of Raw Cacao Powder (You can use regular cocoa powder such as Hershey’s etc. with great results!)

2. 1 Teaspoon of Organic Honey (Regular honey will do just fine!  Still has excellent benefits)

3. 1/2 Teaspoon of Organic Coconut Oil

Blend ingredients until smooth, masque will be consistency of frosting. Thick is good!

Smooth all over face and throat. Leave on for at least 10 minutes. You can leave on as long as you like, but I must warn that if your skin is warm or the climate is warm, it may start to drip a little! Have fun making your masque!

Homemade Honey-Almond Scrub


AS5

Here’s an easy to make honey almond scrub recipe that also doubles as a masque. I made this one today and used it on my friend Monica. Her skin was so soft and dewy afterwards!

The almonds make a gentle manual exfoliating scrub. The honey acts as a hydration and a soothing anti-inflammatory. The coconut milk is cleansing and moisturizing.  The cinnamon is great for circulation and moving toxins out of the skin.

 

 

The Ingredients:

 

1.  1/4 Cup Raw Almonds (Ground up in blender). Be careful not to over blend , or you may end up with almond butter!

 

2.  1 Tablespoon Raw Honey

 

3.  2 Tablespoons Coconut Milk

 

4.  1 Pinch of  Cinnamon

 

Carefully grind raw almonds in your blender or food processor (pulse).

Separately mix in the raw honey with the coconut milk and the cinnamon.

 

Almond Scrub

 

Add in your ground almonds and mix with spoon or wooden stick. Add additional coconut milk if necessary for desired consistency. Preferably thick.

 

~You can use this scrub all over the body. Apply to dampened skin and rub in circular motions. Let sit for at least ten minutes for masque benefits, then rinse off with warm water and/or a wash cloth.

 

Enjoy!!!!

 

Please let me know if you make this recipe, I would love to hear what you thought of it!!
