I love making botanical body care products from ingredients I already have on hand. This yummy little lip scrub leaves your lips smooth and pampered. The addition of the honey is a nice humectant to keep moisture sealed in.


  • 2 Tablespoons of organic sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoon of Sunflower or Avocado oil
  • 2 Teaspoons of raw honey
  • 2 drops of peppermint essential oil (optional, but it does give the scrub a nice zing)


Mix altogether in a small bowl. You can ad a few more drops of honey or oil if you’d like a creamier texture.

To use, scoop out a little of the scrub on the end of a clean spoon (best to not dip your fingers into the scrub if you are going to save the rest for future use.) Place on lips and rub in a circular motion with your finger.  When done with your scrub, just remove excess from your lips with a damp cloth. Store any remaining scrub in a small, sealed container. Should store fine for several weeks if you avoid getting any water into the mix.
