Quinoa seeds! It's often called a grain, but quinoa is actually a seed that is usually cooked like a grain....#littleknownfacts.
Quinoa is a great pantry staple that can be used in lots of different ways for meals, but today we're grabbing a few handfuls to use these little grains as an easy natural exfoliant.
Just process quinoa in a coffee grinder for 5-10 seconds to get the grains in better-usable form. Grind quinoa to a fine powder and mix your favorite body oil or fruit/veggie puree for a drain-safe body scrub to gently remove dead skin. You can sift if through a fine mesh sieve for a super-fine powder if you're using it on a sensitive face.
You can also mix quinoa powder with your favorite hair wash for an invigorating scalp scrub! If you're looking for quinoa at your local market, check the bulk section for better prices
