If you’re thinking of what gift to get someone, then consider getting them a homemade gift. It’s easy to purchase a gift from a store or online, but being able to make your own gift is empowering and easier than you may think. Today, we’ll be giving our loved ones the gift of organic homemade lip scrub.
Whether it is cold or warm outside, moisturized lips will always be in style. One of the best feelings comes from having freshly exfoliated lips. Afterward, lip gloss and lipstick application will be much easier, smoother, and satisfying.
Each ingredient in this recipe is handpicked because they benefit your lips in a different way. Honey is a humectant, so it attracts and maintains moisture from the air. Jojoba oil is an emollient, so it moisturizes and softens the lips. Peppermint oil has a very minty scent, so your lips and breath will smell fresh. Finally, white sugar is the star of the show because it will exfoliate away chapped and dead skin on your lips to reveal baby soft lips!
- One teaspoon of jojoba oil, for moisture (About $6 for 1oz.)
- Two tablespoons of organic white sugar, for exfoliation (About $5 for 32oz.)
- Eight drops of peppermint essential oil, for fragrance (About $8 for 0.5oz.)
- Two tablespoons of organic honey, for moisture (About $7 for 16oz.)
