Hocus Pocus Oils: Lip Scrub

 
Recipe borrowed and tweaked from In Honor of Design
 
Experimenting with my Young Living Essential Oils (YLEO) has become one of my new favorite hobbies. As if I don't have enough of those. Anyway, I was anxiously awaiting my brand new bottle of Lavender (it's one of those bottles you use a lot) and when it arrived today, I was all set to make my new lip scrub.
 
If you know the Bores, you know we love chapstick. We have probably 15 laying around at all times - in the junk drawer, in the bathroom, in our nightstands, in my purse, in Mr. B's jean pocket, in the consoles of our cars, in the washer, etc.
 
My lips are usually smooth, but in this dry climate of ours, I sometimes need a little more than chapstick. Like a lip mask to freshen them up! So I mixed up a little scrub and my lips are already feeling smoother and softer.
 
Recipe:
Mix the following ingredients in a bowl.
  • 1/3 cup of Raw sugar (I got this big bag at Sprouts for $2.00)
  • 1/4 cup of Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 3 Drops of Lavender YLEO
 
The original recipe suggested 1/4 cup of sugar, but I found my mixture was too oily, so I added more sugar! I also added 2 drops of Elemi, which is a new YLEO to me and one that is great for your skin. Not necessary for this recipe, but I had it on hand, so I used it! 
 
This recipe makes 4oz of lip scrub. It would take me 3 lifetimes to use this amount, so I actually plan to get smaller tins and share with friends! They would make great favors or gifts.
 
Lavender comes in the YLEO Premium Starter Kit. If interested, visit the bottom of this post for step by step instructions on getting started with some oils of your own. The recipes are SO fun!
