One of my favorite herbalist, Susan Weed, gives each of her interns a 2 pound block of dark chocolate to eat during their stay.  She says it can make a bad day good in a few bites.  She believes it is healthy for the soul.  I AGREE!!  But it is also great for the skin.

Dark chocolate is a skin-friendly ingredient that helps to keep your skin healthy, glowing and just flawless. Midnight Oil Soap offers Hot Chocolate Soap in a very limited supply every fall.  Full of dark bitter ground chocolate.
