“I have named this scrub after the Zaar member/chef who gave me the idea and inspiration to make this. There was a topic about nuts and their "use by date" I had a look in my kitchen cupboard and found ground almonds which had passed their date. I use almonds in the soaps I make, but at the moment I am into the salt scrubs. The vitamin E is in there for your skin and as an extra preservative. You can use different oil; choose any vegetable oil you like. I used almond fragrance oil for this scrub, and for the grated soap a cream bar. So Chia... here it is!”
