'Best of 2014' Winner

I've been dying to try some of the soaps containing crushed walnut shells I've seen on pinterest lately.  This winter has been really bad for dry skin so I thought I'd give it a try.  I didn't want to dull my Cuisinart by chopping up the shells up so decided to go for a little more chunky bar.  The peanut shells are leftover from my Floating Candle Tutorial and the hickory shells are from our yard.  This batch isn't scented.  For my next batch, I think I'll try a fragrance that reminds me of springtime.  Also, I won't use shells from salted peanuts, the soap kind of scratches and the salt isn't any fun.

That looks like it would be really great after this long, dry winter!

Ah, this is a neat idea!  It's definitely going to whisk away the winter skin.

I bet the soap would be great for rough and dry winter feet!  Does it smell like peanuts?

The salty peanut scrub idea might be a winner...double the exfoliation! Smiley

There really are so many possibilities with this.  So many nut varieties you could use!

This should really do the trick on those super rough areas such as knees, elbows, & heels!
