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!

what a silly name for something that feels sooooo good in the shower! i don't have expired almonds but if i knew about this scrub i would never have thrown out my long expired hazelnuts. i used walnut oil and the rest of the staples from my pantry for this one- i loved the aroma and the feel, no one dead cell left on this bod! i actually used a semi coarse sea salt and it is just fine. thanks annelies, i'm so honored-and as soft as a babies.....never mind :)
