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!
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
  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.
