So after reading the crunchy betty blog for a while, I decided I wanted to give the no nonsense scrub a try. Well, I found out that while I DO have both almonds and oats, we do not own a food procesor. So after a couple of days of brainstorming I came across the PERFECT way to grind up oats and almonds to get the fluffy, grainy consistency that is necessary for the scrub. Here’s how.
Things you’ll need:
Almonds (1/2 cup)
Oats (1/2 cup)
A pair of sharp scissors
A cheese grater
two small dishes (soy sauce dishes work like a charm here)
For the almonds:
1.) Snip the tip off of the almond until there is a flat-ish surface.
2.) Get dish ready
3.) Hold cheese grater above the dish and start grating the almond down as far as you can without cutting yourself.
4.) Chances are that hardly any of the fluff got into your dish, that’s alright, just sweep it in afterwards.
**Tip: Cut up the rest of the end bits and add it to your dish
For the oats:
1.) Measure out 1/2 cup of oats and spread it out on a clean surface.
2.) Hold your hand over the oats so that it is just barely touching them
3.) Slid the scissors underneath your hand and into the oats and begin opening and closing the scissors slowly.
4.) Repeat until the desired effect is reached.
Note: This is very time consuming and can get tiresome, but the effects of the scrub are worth it, trust me.
I will more than likely make a video on how to do this later.1 year ago - 14 notes
