Do you ever have dry, chapped lips? Craving smooth, kissable lips, but don’t want to dish out a lot of money for a fancy store bought lip scrub? Yes? Perfect! Today I’m sharing my recipe for an easy DIY Vanilla Mint Lip Scrub that you can make at home with just a few ingredients.
I first discovered lip scrubs years ago while shopping at Bath & Body Works. I immediately fell in love with the concept of exfoliating your lips with a natural ingredient like sugar, but I didn’t like the expensive price tag. No worries, though, because now I’ve learned how to make my very own. All you need is some sugar, coconut oil and essential oil. It’s really easy, and can be made in less than 5 minutes.
Seriously. In less than 5 minutes you’ll be on your way to having super soft, smooth, kissable lips. For this recipe I’ve chosen two flavors I like paired together…vanilla and mint.
- 1 T. Brown Sugar
- 1 T. White Granulated Sugar
- 1 T. Organic Coconut Oil
- 1/8 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 5 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
To make this DIY lip scrub, all you have to do is mix the ingredients together well. Here is how you use it:
- Apply a small amount to lips.
- Rub the mixture on your lips for a minute, allowing the scrub to loosen dead skin.
- Wipe the scrub off with a damp cloth.
- Apply a lip conditioner to your super smooth lips.
- Store extra in an airtight container.
As always, this recipe can be easily customized to your tastes. You can use lemon instead of vanilla if you want, or spearmint instead of peppermint if you’d like. It’s your scrub, so make it the way you’ll like it. Don’t forget these make great gifts, too.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Here’s to more kissable lips today!
