Well, Dip Me In Chocolate And Call Me Dessert...

"Twill make Old Women Young and Fresh; Create New Motions of the Flesh. And cause them long for you know what, If they but taste of chocolate."   (from "A History of the Nature and Quality of Chocolate" - James Wadworth (1768-1844) )

Just a little treat from me to you...I was very pleased to come across this little recipe because it combines two of my favorite self care tools:  chocolat and a hot bath!   (It is a great little way to get my chocolat fix on this diet  I am on too!)


Chocolat Lover's Milk Bath Mix

2 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tablespoons cornstarch
optional: 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix together all ingredients and place in a pretty glass jar (be sure to tie it with a pretty pink bow!).
Add a half cup to your next bath.

Take a moment and set the atmosphere - one does not just JUMP into a tub of chocolat without a few preparations!

Here are a few tips for getting the senses primed and making the most of your bathing experience:

  • Turn off the lights and light some candles (might want to light the candles first, actually)
  • Play some soft music
  • Dine on strawberries and a glass of wine
  • Inhale the chocolately bath goodness (in with the good chocolat-scented air....out with bad with the good chocolat-scented air...)
  • Relax. 
  • Feel fabulous.
 Follow up with your favorite scented lotion (Doesn't coconut body lotion sound good about now?)
