To have a romantic time at home, convert your bedroom or bathroom into a lovebird den by choosing the best spa products, the right music, appropriate lighting, and foods that appeal to your senses.

 

The various items needed for home spa treatments include clean towels, massage oil, scented candles, salt scrub, and others. For food, you can choose dark chocolate, dessert wine, fresh fruit like grapes, and some of your favorite snacks that help release happy hormones in your body.

 

You can also make homemade facial cleansers and provide a lovely cleansing session to your spouse. Pampering yourself at least once a month can relieve your stress and rejuvenate your body inside out. So why not indulge your equally stress-relieving sweet tooth at the same time by having a chocolate spa treatment?

 

There are several spas and hotels nationwide that offer different spa treatments using chocolate as the main ingredient and theme. However, if you are on a budget and cannot afford to travel to the nearest chocolate spa, there are several homemade recipes you can use for your own chocolate spa treatment right in the privacy of your home.

 

Here are some of my favourite DIY chocolate spa recipes which you can use at the comfort of your home to pamper your body and your spouse’s.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 1

 

What you need is 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 ounce honey, 1/2 cup conventional cocoa powder and 1 ounce vanilla extract.

 

Stir the sugar with 2 tablespoons of honey to create a uniform mixture. Spread the mixture throughout the body in rhythmic circular upward movements emphasizing on knees, elbows and soles. Rinse off with water.

Stir the chocolate, vanilla and the remaining honey to create a homogenous mixture. Apply mask all over the body and let stand 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with water.

Combine 4 tablespoons ground coffee with equal amount of cocoa powder. Add 8 tablespoon whole milk to the mixture. Stir until you have a smooth paste.

With fingers or a make-up wedge, spread the mixture over face and neck. You may also apply the mixture to other areas of the body where extra softness is needed.

 

Leave the mixture on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat your body dry.

Take a handful of cocoa butter and warm it until it melts, but don’t overheat it. Mix the cocoa butter with ¾ cup of white sugar and ¼ cup of dark brown sugar to form a paste. You can then start scrubbing by spreading this paste over your body.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 4

 

You will need 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of raw organic honey (or manuka honey) and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Combine the honey, cocoa powder and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix well. Then you add 1-2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil into the bowl, and stir the contents in the bowl to form a paste. If the paste is too thick, you can add a little bit more olive oil.

 

This step is optional. If you want, you can add 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil to add an extra moisturizer to the chocolate body scrub. Lastly, you can either add 3 drops of lavender oil to make a chocolate lavender scrub or add 3 drop of essential orange oil to make a chocolate orange scrub.

 

You wet the parts of your body you want to exfoliate with the scrub. Hands, elbows and feet all benefit from a cocoa scrub because the skin on these areas is often dry. Gently rub the scrub onto the area using a circular motion. Rinse the area with warm water.

 

DIY Chocolate Spa Recipe 5

 

You will need ½ cup of cocoa powder, 6 tablespoons of whole cream milk, 3 tablespoons of raw organic honey (or manuka honey), 3 tablespoons of ground oatmeal, and 2 tablespoons of ground almonds, 3 drops of sweet almond oil and 3 drops of lavender oil.

 

You mix cocoa powder, milk, honey, oatmeal and ground almonds to form a paste and then you add in sweet almond and lastly lavender oil. You can now start scrubbing, applying the paste on your face, neck and body. Keep it there for 15 minutes before you rinse off.
