Homemade Lemon Sugar Lip Scrub is great for exfoliating your lips and keeping them smooth and soft. I have a recipe that 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.
