Feast your eyes on this: chocolate pecan pie body scrub.

A few months ago I mentioned that I’m going to be starting a natural skin care line so I’ve been doing the research to see what kind of scary venture lies ahead. I’ve made a couple of the products and will have people testing them soon and wanted to give you a glimpse.

I haven’t even started on packaging yet and have yet to figure out what I want. What I thought I wanted isn’t what I wanted after all.

This body scrub is to die for and part of the reason I’ve semi-abandoned my blog recently. I’ve been doing too many things at once.

These aren’t the exact ingredients for the body scrub in the skin care line since I’ve had to keep some secrets. It’s edible so of course I took a bite while in the shower. Nice and sugary.

I lifted this off of my new blog The Good Food Diaries so I’ll keep the little intro I wrote that my husband did not get. at. all. but Tricia did. If anything you should go over to check out my recipe disaster that happened over the weekend.


Years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I was an Esthetician, I used to love making natural skin care products. It was difficult back then because I didn’t speak dinosaur so my efforts were hindered. Recently though I’ve been back in the kitchen trying out different skin care recipes and came up with this one. Chocolate Pecan Pie Body Scrub. Yum!
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
1/4 cup very light (or extra virgin) olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stir all of the ingredients together, mixing well.
Put the scrub into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
Store the body scrub in a cool, dry place and it will keep for around 4 weeks.
Use once a week in the shower, gently rubbing into your skin and making sure to avoid your face. Enjoy!

    Is it wrong that I just want to eat that with a spoon? It looks so good! 😛

    LOL! I guess when I put this on the ants would devour me. Hihi
    But I guess it is a good way to exfoliate. But never have I tried sweets to put on my skin. I usually go for coffee. Have you guys tried coffee body scrub?

    Emmm… I really hate chocolate scrubs. Not because they are not effective, in fact, chocolate scrubs are awesome. The problem is, I always want to eat them because they smell good =)))
