DIY natural lip scrub



This DIY sugar scrub can be made using 3 simple ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen cupboards!


This non toxic recipe is super nourishing, soothing, and so healthy you can literally eat it! Just how I like all my products!



My lips always seem to get extra dry this time of year, despite my desperate attempts to keep them hydrated. So I mixed up a small batch of this scrub to give my dry lips an extra boost of nourishment to help heal them through these dry Utah summers.

If you find ourself picking at those pesky flaky lips, or constantly adding lip balm throughout the day to keep your lips hydrated, give this scrub a try!


First you are going to add your raw organic honey to a small bowl. Depending on how much lip scrub you want will determine how much of each ingredient you use, they will all be equal parts.


I personally like to use 1/2 a teaspoon of each ingredient and have a little to store and use again later. ( Note: If storing for later use make sure you are using a container with a seal tight lid, & as always glass is best.)



Next step is to add in equal parts (or 1/2 teaspoon) of raw organic sugar. ( sugar can be substituted for brown sugar, stevia, or other sugar substitutes if needed)


Add in equal part (or 1/2 teaspoon) of coconut oil or another nourishing oil of your choice such as olive oil, jojoba, or almond oil can be used instead.


If you’d like to add some natural flavor to the mix you can add a splash of lemon juice, a small scoop of coffee grounds, or even 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil.


Mix it up!




Next, Apply a small amount to lips & gently rub into lips using a circular motion for 1-2 minutes. I like to let the mixture soak into my lips for a min or two if you have the time.


Gently wipe off scrub with warm, damp cloth & Enjoy your new lush lips!


For a little extra nourishment I like to apply my favorite organic lip balm like the ones offered in the blue branches shop here:


Store any remaining lip scrub in a jar with a seal tight lid & enjoy this yummy lip scrub all year!
