Homemade Lemon Sugar Lip Scrub

Homemade Lemon Sugar Lip Scrub is great for exfoliating your lips and keeping them smooth and soft.  This recipe is not only easy to make, but it’s also inexpensive.

There are only three ingredients in the recipe:  coconut oil, sugar, and lemon essential oil.  They combine to create a delicious scrub that is all-natural and safe to use.

Young Living’s Lemon Essential Oil is great in this lip scrub.  (It’s also great added to a glass of water for a refreshing drink or diffused in the air for a fresh, clean scent.)

To make it, start with a small glass jar.  (I found this 1/2 cup Ball container at my local Hobby Lobby. I used a 40 % off coupon and got it for less than $1.50.)  

Place 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and melt it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.  (Use coconut oil that is solid at room temperature.)  Allow it to cool for a couple of minutes before adding 1/4 cup of organic sugar.  You want it to cool so that the sugar won’t dissolve when you add it to the oil.

Next, add 10-12 drops of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil and stir well.  Let the mixture sit for a few hours or overnight.

Once the mixture solidifies, you can take a fork to fluff it up.  When you are ready to use, take a small amount and rub it on your lips and leave on for 1-2 minutes.  Remove with a cloth and apply your favorite lip balm.
