My personal favorite! There are so many bath bombs and bathing products out there, and I LOVE them all, but this formula creates such a tantalizing and conditioning kick that I can not get enough. Mix 4 Tbs. of Chocolate Mint Mineral Soak in a small bowl, add 1 Tbs. of Coconut Bath and Body Serum very slowly, (this helps keep the Citric Acid and Baking Soda infused), and blend. Place a large bowl of warm water (for feet) over a towel by a chair, sit down, place feet into a bowl of warm water, and gently exfoliate shins and calves. Leave on the skin, pour the remaining mixture into the bowl of water and relax. The fizz and scents released create my favorite remedy for dry skin and are super fun around the end of summer and holidays! Sit for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse shins, pat dry, and apply immediate moisturizer to calves and feet.
This is a must for muscle aches and pains. Use as directed for a bath once a week.

Luminous Ingredient - Organic White Cocoa Powder (Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter)
Nestled in the northwestern corner of Costa Rica’s majestic tropical mountain town of Rincon de la Vieja, is where I first encountered this luxury in the form of a hot beverage.
Surrounded by a 35,000-acre national park, and an incredible combination of bubbling mud pots, steaming fumaroles, and rushing creeks, lives a family who creates this lovely opaque powder.
Here I learned more about Costa Rica’s many different uses for the native “Cocoa Pod”.
Although it’s not your classic traditional dark or milk chocolates, it is a different kind of chocolate!
White Chocolate is made by blending cocoa butter with milk and sugar using the same methods used to create milk and dark chocolate.
White chocolate has none of the cacao mass, hence the delicate, ivory-like color, which it gets from the cocoa butter.
Cocoa butter is derived from the chocolate-making process, or more specifically when cocoa powder is made.
To make cocoa powder, roasted cacao beans are ground into a paste, known as chocolate liquor, and then the paste is pressed through a powerful hydraulic press, which separates the cocoa mass from the cocoa butter.
Once the cocoa butter, milk, and sugar are blended, molded, and dried, the molded pieces are then broken into smaller pieces and hand-grated.
The final result is an intoxicating aroma, which has incredible skin conditioning benefits.
The Chocolate Mint Mineral Soak has a double whammy of wonderful; you get the white chocolate powder and addition of extra cocoa butter!
