Nothing like the smell of warm hot chocolate on a cold winter day. With this oh-so-delicious bath bomb recipe, you have the chance to really embrace the feeling of warmth on your skin. Almost as if you are swimming in a cup of hot chocolate yourself.

Once combined, spritz in a little bit of witch hazel and slowly add the entire mixture to the dry ingredients. Keep mixing until it feels like damp sand. Stuff the mixture into the mold and leave it to dry overnight.

 

DIY Body Scrubs

 

DIY Body Scrubs

Body scrubs are a must for soft, glowy skin as they exfoliate and remove the dead skin cells that reduce the effect of your moisturizers. For example, if you exfoliate your skin before applying a moisturizer, instead of sitting on the surface of your skin, it will be able to penetrate more deeply.
Additionally, massaging your skin can also be a great way to relax and feel calmer, especially if you’re tired or stressed.

Whether you choose a hand scrub, lip scrub, or body scrub, you can find amazing recipes in our Bellabeat Wellness Coach app.

 

Our favorite: Green Tea Hand Scrub

 

The benefits of Green tea are truly endless. Whether you are drinking it or using it topically, you can notice the anti-inflammatory properties kicking in. This scrub can help reduce swelling, redness, and irritation. All while also adding some moisture to your skin!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 tea bags green tea
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

Leave the tea bags to steep in hot water until it cools down. In a separate bowl add sugar and the melted coconut oil. Once it is completely mixed and the tea is cooled down, slowly add the tea until you reach a paste-like consistency. Rub in the mixture for about 2-3 minutes and rinse with warm water.
