Make a chocolate treat for the outside of your body.

Chocolate and spa treatments like massages, facials and pedicures are quintessential Valentine’s Days gifts everyone loves to receive. Oasis Day Spa, with locations in New York City and Westchester, offers romantic packages combining chocolate and spa services like massages using chocolate body oil, and chocolate mousse facials. The oils and scrubs they use in their treatments are all natural and use ingredients you probably have at home, and Sandra Lakatos, the spa director, was kind enough to let us in on her secret recipe for their Chocolate Ganache Body Scrub. So treat yourself or a loved one to a homemade chocolate treat this Valentine’s Day — it will leave you feeling renewed and rejuvenated. Bonus: There are zero calories in this chocolate treat; it’s completely homemade and completely guilt-free.

Chocolate Ganache Body Scrub

1 cup of brown sugar
1-2 tsp of cocoa powder (if you have a bar of organic or raw dark chocolate it also works, you just have to melt it)
1 cup of olive oil

Mix the ingredients in a plastic bowl and gently scrub on dry skin.
Rinse without soap so that you keep the antioxidants from the chocolate and the moisture of the olive oil on your skin.
Your skin will feel luxurious!
