So here we are again with another scrub. I am slightly addicted to them for all of the right reasons. I mean, they make your skin feel uh-mazing! So why not make one for your lips.
Can I just say that this was so tasty I had a hard time not eating it right off! The peppermint just gives it an extra pzazz, plus if you eat it its an instant breath freshener. That is exactly why you needed a lip scrub, to make your breath fresh. Right?!
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 table spoon coconut oil
5 drops peppermint oil (below I have info on the oils I prefer)
I got my jar at a local craft store, but you can click the blue link to find ones on Amazon that work great too!
Start by adding 3 tablespoons of brown sugar to your jar. You can use granulated sugar too, brown sugar just isn’t as course.
Then add your coconut oil. I use fractionated oil, which means the fat cells are removed so that it will not get hard like the coconut oil that is white. Again you can use either..if you use the regular coconut oil it will just be more of a cream texture.
Coconut oil has so many amazing properties. It can kill bacteria, increase energy, reduce hunger, and most of all is a great moisturizer for your skin. I used it in this coffee scrub I made the other day. My skin is so flippin soft I still cannot believe it!
Next add your drops of peppermint oil. This is optional but is an amazing bonus! Peppermint oil is great to have on hand to use for things like hot flashes, headaches, upset stomach, freshen breath, lower body temp during fever, cook with..just to name a few.
**I am addicted to essential oils, but I am going to warn you. There are only certain brands that are meant to be ingested. Not every oil is PURE like the labels say so please make sure you read the fine print on the back of the bottles before you ingest anything. I found this out the hard way.
Now I only use doTERRA and so many of my friends wanted to get oils that it turned into a little side business, so if you are interested in getting oils you can go to www. mydoterra .com/jessicabures (remove spaces) id# 2063015 and pick some up…most people start with the Natural solutions package and sign up for a wholesale membership (not preferred..preferred members only get 20% off purchases and the package is more expensive, wholesale gets 25%!! plus there are more perks with the wholesale account).
If you have questions about what to get please reach out to me so I can walk you through the steps and answer any of your oil questions. I have done a lot of research and love sharing my knowledge with anyone interested in learning!**
Mix it all together and rub a small amount on your lips. You can either use your finger to rub it in or rub your lips together for a few minutes. Then rinse it off and call it a day.
What other flavors do you think would be good? Wild orange is the next one I am going to make!
