Using simple ingredients you can quickly create your own lip scrub. Sure, you can buy this stuff, but I like making my own so I know exactly what it is made of. I used organic sugar, because it makes a perfect natural exfoliant. I chose to use jojoba oil, because it is deeply nourishing for the skin. The combination of lemon and peppermint not only tastes good, but lemon essential oil is a powerful oil for exfoliating the skin, while peppermint gently soothes and adds freshness.
Lemon Mint Lip Scrub
- 1.5 Tablespoons of organic sugar
- 2 Tablespoons jojoba oil
- 2 drops of lemon essential oil
- 1 drop of peppermint essential oil
Gently mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Once combined, transfer mixture to a small container with lid. Old lip balm containers are a great option, and a perfect way to re-purpose and reduce waste. :-)
To use the scrub, gently wet your lips with warm water. Use a small amount of scrub and rub over lips in a circular motion. Rinse lips with warm water and pat dry. Add your favorite lip balm if needed.
