Hot Cocoa Bath Salt Soak

I LOVE hot cocoa! It is so creamy and rich and decadent.  Have you ever wanted to take a bath in hot cocoa? Can you even imagine how wonderful and relaxing it would be to soak in a steamy hot cocoa infused bath? Indulge your senses with this recipe that will satisfy your chocolate craving without adding any calories to your waistline.

You will need 1/2 cup of Mountain Rose Herbs Baking Soda. You can find it HERE.

You will need 1 1/2 cups of Mountain Rose Herbs Epsom Salts. You can find it HERE.

You will need 1/2 cup of Mountain Rose Herbs Himalayan Pink Salt. You can find it HERE.

Combine the baking soda, Epsom salt and Himalayan salt into a medium sized mixing bowl.

I used a 1/2 tablespoon of Organic Chocolate Extract to give the bath salt an extra kick of cocoa aroma.

Drizzle the chocolate extract over the salt/baking soda mixture and stir well to combine.

Add in 1/2 cup of cocoa powder and stir well to combine evenly.

Your mixture will look like this when mixed properly.  It smells delicious!!!!

I thought it would be fun to fill up some glass milk bottles with the salt soak, but you can choose any container you like.

Fun containers like the one in the photo above, make it super cute when giving as a gift.

You simply add in 3/4 cup of the bath salt to a tub of warm water and swirl the water to mix.  Enjoy the decadent cocoa aroma!!!

You could also add in 1/2 cup of powdered milk for extra moisturizing properties if you like.
