How to: Blackberry Exfoliating Hand Polish

Have you been infusing dried blackberries in oil lately?


Have you also been wondering what to do with the blackberries after you strained the oil? Well, here's a suggestion: make a fabulous blackberry hand polish (that you may also want to try out as an exfoliating body scrub too).

Not only do dried blackberries function well as exfoliating nuggets, they will soften fairly quickly as they get wet so are not very likely to clog your drain and cause wailing and gnashing of teeth by plumbing-concerned family members (not that I know anyone who fits that description or anything).

And – they make your hand polish look all kinds of pretty!
