Chocolate is a natural healer, helping to relieve stress and introduce antioxidants to the body. The prime ingredient, cacao, comes from a small, bitter bean that is packed full of natural disease fighting elements such as flavonoids and theobromine. Also containing iron and magnesium, cacao can help ward off nasty effects of aging as it can help to make arteries and veins more flexible.
The bitter cacao has commonly been mixed with sugar and butter to make it sweet and palatable, still yielding the natural benefits to health. Going a step further, it is not only beneficial inside the body, it can work wonders for the skin.
Chocolate has been found to be a soothing healer for the skin, as well. Many salons are now offering chocolate facials, as the antioxidants in the formula help to ward off acne-friendly bacteria. An all natural soap has been developed by Simkha Beauty, and it's simply called Chocolat Candy Soap. The hand-crafted treat for the skin is full of moisturizing olive oil, other natural ingredients and of course chocolate. The luxurious aroma of chocolate can easily add to a delightful bath experience,
