DIY Sugar Lip Scrub:
- 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 4 TSP Coconut Oil
- 2 TSP Honey
- Hard Candy Flavoring Oil (I used Lorann Strawberry and Watermelon)
Begin by mixing the sugar and the coconut oil. Using a spatula or fork, blend together until well distributed. Next add the honey and continue to blend. I wanted to make two different flavors, so I evenly divided the lip scrub in two separate bowls.
I added about 12-15 drops of edible flavoring oil per bowl. Continue to mix the lip scrub until distributed evenly.
Since both flavors yielded a similar color, I added pink sugar crystals to one of the bowls so I could tell them apart. If I had another color, I would have added it to the other bowl. I think it just looked prettier in the jars with the colored sugar. The honey does add a golden hue to the lip scrub, so keep that in mind when planning out colors. Some people add a drop of food coloring, but you need to be careful since the color may transfer to your lips and stain them.
See how pretty the colored sugar looks?! I really like these small jars. (They are the same ones I used when I made Kool Aid Lip Balm.) With this recipe, I was able to fill 10 of them with the lip scrub.
I created some small labels to attach to the jars, then I glued them on top. You can also use stickers or adhesive labels. I didn’t have either, so these worked fine.
Now wasn’t that simple? After seeing my daughter pay $10 for a tiny jar of lip scrub, I knew we could make it at home for a lot less! I also like knowing exactly what ingredients are being used. Now I wouldn’t recommend eating the lip scrub, but everything I used is 100% edible! Enjoy!
