After talking about non-toxic, natural lip balm last winter this year we’re making the perfect companion, lip scrub. I feel like these have become more popular in recent years, but it’s especially important to use non-toxic chemicals around our mouths. The lips are a highly absorbent part of the body, so it’s good to make sure we’re only treating them to nice, nourishing products. The exfoliating properties of lip scrubs are great for keeping our lips hydrated, smooth and soft, plus they’re so easy to make!
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp sweet almond oil
- Vanilla pod
- Using the double boiler method, gently heat your coconut oil until softened, not fully melted
- Add the almond oil and sugar, stirring until you reach desired scrub consistency
- Finally, scrape out the insides of a small amount of the vanilla pod, add to the scrub and mix thoroughly
- Decant into container of your choice
All done! Silky smooth, sweet smelling lips no matter how harsh the weather is!
Until tomorrow, stay magic y’all.
