Living a la mode is all about taking the ordinary to the extraordinary but without any extraordinary expense or fuss. So, by combining some common kitchen pantry items, you can make your own almond inspired body scrub. And if you are like me, and save a few glass jars, you will also have on hand a thoughtful handmade gift, turning your kitchen pantry into a gift pantry. But we can save preparing that for another time. This week is about almond, and a honey almond scrub fits our theme nicely.
Honey Almond Scrub
- Sea salt
- Almond oil*
- Vitamin E oil.
Take enough sea salt as you think you will need. If you are making it for the occasional treatment just make enough for that treatment. Who needs a giant jar of scrub taking up space in the bathroom. And besides, a little goes a long way. I suggest starting out with no more than half a cup. Mix in just enough almond oil, honey and vitamin E oil to create a paste. Add a teaspoon of almond oil and a few drops honey and vitamin E oil until you create a paste.
Voila! A body scrub! And one less jar of crap in your bathroom!
*Olive oil, if you do not have almond, works just as well and costs less. But, after all, almond is my obsession this week.
