With the fall and winter come dry, chapped lips. Forget purchasing a lip scrub – make your own that you could lick off your lips if you wanted to!

What you’ll need:
– 2 tbsp granulated organic cane sugar or brown sugar
– 1.5 tsp coconut oil
– 1/2 tsp olive oil or 1/2 tsp honey or 1/2 tsp castor oil
– Optional: 2 drops vanilla or peppermint essential oil
Mix your ingredients together and place them in a little jar. If you’re lazy (like I sometimes am), you could simply keep some coconut oil and a bit of brown sugar in your bathroom and mix a little bit of those two ingredients for an impromptu lip scrub instead!
Scrub your lips in gentle circular motions for 1-2 minutes, leave the scrub on for 1-2 minutes, wash off with a damp cloth and apply some shea butter, coconut oil, or lip balm afterwards. Smack your lips liberally to feel how smooth they are 😉
