An easy ,tasty lip scrub to give you smooth soft lips. Great as a pre-lipstick prep, or as presents....
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp castor oil
1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp coffee grounds
3 drops of peppermint oil extract
Step 1: Start with Sugar
For lip scrubs, granulated sugar works best. This oil acts as the base for the scrub, it adds to the sugar to create that scrub texture you are used to. If you don't have castor oil on hand olive oil or almond oil will work too.
Step 2: Add the Fragrance
This oil adds fragrance and some conditioning to your lip scrub. If peppermint isn't your thing then try lavender or almond oil.
Step 4: Mix it up!
Add the Coffee and cocoa and mix it up!!.. Store whats left in a lidded container or package in pretty tubs as gifts!!
To use it take a little bit (or as much as you need) and apply it to your lips using your fingers, scrub it in a circular motion for about a minute, then rinse (or wipe) it off to reveal soft smooth lips!!! For a variation try changing the oil extract used or swap it around for your favourite essential oil...
