Don't Know Whether To Use It Or Eat It

I don't think it's a blogging no-no to blog about things you learn about in newsletters you subscribe to so if it is, well I didn't know (but there's a share button so I think it's OK) . Anyway, I subscribe to the FaveCrafts newsletter and guess what they had featured in the one I got today? This, that's what!
CHOCOLATE BODY SCRUB
And it's edible! Wouldn't this make a fun gift ( if it gets out of your kitchen)? I knew I saved those pasta sauce jars ( hangs head in shame for using pre-made sauce SOMETIMES) for a reason!

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cocoa nibs
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened
  • cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup jojoba oil
  • 1/2 cup sweet almond oil
  • 2 tablespoons vitamin E oil
Steps:
  1. Use a food processor or blender to grind the oats into a powder.
     
  2. Add the cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, salt, almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil.
     
  3. Hit pulse a few times to blend.
     
  4. Store in a glass or plastic jar, and scoop out for use with a spoon or a seashell.
     
  5. Massage the scrub into skin, then rinse with warm water.

Thanks for visiting me over at Pittypat Paperie and leaving the nice comment about my printing on fabric.

You asked about the paper and I get my full sheet sticky paper here:

You can also use the Avery full page sticker sheets from Wal Mart and any office supply store.

If you have anymore questions just let me know.
