Last night when my husband came home and Charlotte and I were knee deep into scrubs, he was like…um…but then he tried my Soft Hands Sugar Scrub and was like…wow!  Charlotte and I spent pretty much a good portion of the evening testing different scrub smells, textures and even adding some extract instead of smell oils.

Basically we were doing what crafting is really intended for – having fun.

And when I discovered this cute baby little jar in the bag still, I knew we had to make lip scrub.

What is lip scrub?

Well, if you have ever endured the biting cold winds of winter or the drying out affects of the sun in the summer, lip scrub is just a sweet little way to dust off any excess dry skin and make your lips a little softer- naturally! The reason I don’t just say use the other Sugar Scrub as a lip scrub is that its grapefruit and I prefer something a little more softer next to my nose – like chocolate. Plus it fits the Valentines Season.

Which is why we made

Cocoa and Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

1) You may be here because you are looking for a very specific sugar scrub or lip scrub recipe, but I have to tell you that making this stuff is SO easy. Its as simple as picking out your sugar (white or brown), deciding which oils you like and adding a scent. In this case I wanted to keep it REALLY simple because nature has made so many amazingly tasty things that are good for your skin already.

We used

  • 1/3rd cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa power
  • 3 drops of Vitamin E Oil ($2.99 at hobby lobby for a bottle – feel free to leave out)
  • 1 capful of Vanilla extract (just turn the cap over and fill, was approx 1 tsp)
  • 1 capful of Olive Oil (this is just under 1 Tbsp)

2) All you do is mix together and put in your jar and seal up. Then when you want to use it just put a little on your fingers and scrub your lips. The scent of chocolate is so inviting and the vitamin E oil made my lips soft without being greasy.

You may have noticed that I used an extract instead of an essential oil. You can surely use a vanilla essential oil if you want but I wanted to try something just a tad different (since it was going on my lips I went for a taste vs a therapeutic smell) and was pleased with the results with on hand kitchen products. And if any touches your tongue its tasty.

3) Now the fun part! Decorate your jar. I used a little heart punch and some modge podge to seal.

I still need to actually take it to the shower and test it out before I share. Yes, I actually try my products before posting here.

For now….here is a hint:
