Just a simple melt and pour soap.  I used a clear suspension base, orange oil, and ground up pistachio shells (this was a recycling project).  At first I tried grinding them up in the food processor but it couldn't even touch them so I used my Vitamix, which survived but the shells did pit some of the surface of the plastic of the jug so be warned if you have a Vitamix and want to attempt grinding nut shells in it (really you're supposed to use the dry jug/blade but I didn't want to shell out another 125 bucks for a separate pitcher/blade).  The idea was to make a bar a soap that could really clean grime off your hands.  Haven't tried it yet but it was fun and simple to make.

 Very fun! I love scrubby soaps (and find they are good sellers, especially with the menfolk!)

Neat!  Do you think a coffee bean grinder would work?

Possibly.  Other people have suggested that for grinding nut shells on the internet.
