Chocolate Bath - Deliciously Relaxing

Do you like chocolate? Well you're soaking in it...ahhh doesn't that sound nice - a chocolate bath.

A Japanese spa in Hakone offers them. Incorporating chocolate into natural hot springs, the bath contains cacao extract and trehalose, a kind of natural sugar. These ingredients promote beautiful skin by trapping the moisture.

For the rest of us, there are hot chocolate bath salts. They're also available in white chocolate, for only $9.00.

Of course, baths in general are very soothing and relaxing. And there are health benefits and happiness associated with chocolate. I never would have thought to put the two together - but I bet some of you have!

Spending time in the enveloping warmth and the delicious aroma of chocolate must have an amazingly calming effect.

Birdwoman is right, chocolate and nakedness is a total win-win situation! Baths gross me out, though. I don't take baths.

I thought that first...then the nudity thing...naked skin TOUCHING my chocolate (haha, mine)...just ewwy then! No feet in my chocolate, please. That said, I couldn't go there because I would be too tempted...even with the ewwy.
