Day 1- Valentine Spa Rituals
Cocoa Java Body Polish
“If I were a woman, I’d wear coffee as a perfume.” ~John Van Druten
This is one of my favorite body treatments, and I invented it 🙂 The rich scents of creamy cocoa and chocolate are pure decadence and are a perfect way to treat yourself for Valentine’s Day. Try this treatment in the shower instead of the tub because it’s a little messy. Trust me, it’s worth it!
In a small, glass bowl combine:
1/4 cup freshly ground coffee beans
3 Tablespoons white, granulated sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened, powdered cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons oil (such as sweet almond, apricot kernel, or olive oil)
1 Tablespoon water
Mix all ingredients together. Step into shower and wet your entire body. Massage body polish all over, avoiding face and genital area. Rinse well with warm water.
Sweetie Pie Strawberry Facial
“Kelly Clarkson smells like strawberry shortcake, I know that.” ~Steve Carell
Mix 5 mashed strawberries with a Tablespoon of honey. Apply to clean face. Rinse with warm water after ten minutes.
