Food for your Skin

We nourish our bodies by eating healthy foods but what about the outside of our bodies? The skin is our largest organ. It is important to feed it healthy foods as well. So many body care products contain unhealthy chemicals, preservatives, and synthetic fragrances that can be irritating or harmful to our delicate skin. We should feed our skin a healthy diet, with clean and natural ingredients. Here is an easy sugar scrub recipe that your skin will love.
 
Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Sugar Scrub
 
What you will need:

1 cup organic sugar

1/4 cup grapeseed oil

flavor extracts or essential oils

In a bowl combine sugar and grapeseed oil. Add 5 drops of dark chocolate extract and 5 drops of hazelnut extract. Medicine Flower Extracts are my favorite. They are organic food-grade extracts for culinary, scent, and cosmetic applications. They smell so amazing and fresh. I always add them to my tea and mineral water. 
Save the scrub for yourself or place in a glass jar and dress with a pretty bow and give to a friend.
