I pinned this recipe for a homemade body scrub ages ago, and finally got around to trying it! My legs are definitely exfoliated and soft, so try this one!! It is as simple and easy as it seems, and even after two applications as she advises, there’s still a lot leftover.
And I was making scones.
So I did a little experiment, and it turned out pretty deliciously.
I left sugar out of the scone batter, so I used the oil/sugar/lemon juice scrub mixture as a topper, which caramelized for a nice, sweet crunch with only a few teaspoons of sugar per scone.
- 1 c oats, ground in a blender or food processor
- 1/2 c whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c all purpose flour
- 4 Tbsp cold butter
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c milk
- zest from an orance
- 1/3 c mini chocolate chips
- 1/3 c “silky legs” lemon scrub mixture, for topping
Preheat oven to 425F. Blend the oats, flours, baking soda and salt in a blender (or bowl, by hand). Add the butter and use a dough setting on the blender, or a fork or pastry cutter to incorporate into flour. Place in a bowl, then stir in zest and chocolate chips. Mix egg and milk, then pour into dry ingredients and stir until evenly mixed – don’t over-blend! Drop with a spoon onto a baking sheet (leave lots of space, see below!), then pour a spoonful of the body scrub onto each one. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Whoops. Don’t put them too close together!
