Cacao (Koko Samoa) + Coconut Oil Body Scrub

As I looked around the internet, I saw more and more DIY recipes for coffee body scrubs.  That is when I thought, "Hey!  This could totally be done using Koko Samoa."

So I went to work trying a bunch of recipes and finally came up with something that I think you will love and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

What is great about this recipe is that it is easy, affordable and all the ingredients are good for you.

Cacao (Koko Samoa) is full of flavanoids.  Falavanoids are antioxidants.  Antioxidants are found in a variety of fruits and vegetables.  The antioxidants are the first line of defense of against free radicals that can damage our cells.  The omega fats in cacao also helps to heal scars quicker.

Coconut Oil has medium sized saturated fats which aid in keeping skin smooth to touch by retaining moisture.  So coconut oil can reduce the appearance of pores and give you healthier and smoother skin.

Palm Sugar and Raw Sugar naturally have Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA).  AHA  can reduce wrinkles and aide with uneven skin tone.

Cinnamon has some antiseptic properties which can help heal wounds faster.

We hope that you can see the many benefits that this scrub can have for your skin as well as making you smell delicious!  Watch the video below for the full directions on how to make this amazing scrub.
