DIY Lip Sugar Scrub

Oh my goodness winter weather is here and it is playing havoc on my otherwise soft lips! After some trial and error I think I have crafted the best version of a lip scrub with simple ingredients. Plus, when you use a DIY lip scrub, it removes the dead tissue from the skin and it will leave them feeling softer and smoother. It helps to neutralize lip discoloration, moisturize and help your lips look fuller.

This lip scrub also makes a fun activity for a spa birthday party or a great Valentine’s Day gift for friends. Because the ingredients are natural, you can feel good about whipping up a batch to gift to teachers, neighbors, and anyone that might enjoy some softer skin this winter.

It is super easy and you can customize it to your own aroma liking….although lemon, wild orange or eucalyptus are all pretty amazing! And for extra fun and plumping action, try peppermint or spearmint!


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • Combine ingredients and stir until blended.
  • Store in an airtight container. I really like these cute little jars.
