You’ve probably heard about the super powers of coconut oil.  Coconut oil has some seriously good benefits for our skin.

 Your lips will love how it keeps them moisturized and it can help heal cracks and chapped lips with it’s anti-microbial properties.

Be sure to get organic, cold pressed, unrefined coconut oil like THIS ONE from AMAZON for the best benefits.

Local Honey


Try to find a raw, local honey from your farmer’s market because the unprocessed honey still has all the beneficial elements in it, and this makes it super good for your skin.  Unprocessed honey is extremely moisturizing and soothing.  

Most honey from the grocery store has been so processed that all of the beneficial properties are gone.

You can order THIS ONE from Amazon if you can’t get a high quality local honey.

Brown Sugar

The brown sugar in this lip scrub is an ingredient you probably already have at home which makes this super easy to throw together.  

I recommend organic if possible, especially since it will be going on your lips and you will potentially be eating it, whether on purpose or not. It will taste delicious, so I won’t judge you.

If your grocery store doesn’t have any,  you can snag organic brown sugar on Amazon.

Essential Oils for your Homemade Lip Scrub

Adding essential oils to your lip scrub will give it that extra “oomph”.The essential oils will make it smell and taste fantastic.Make sure your are using an essential oil that is safe to consume.Most inexpensive fragrance oils are not safe to eat so I wouldn’t recommend using those.doTERRA essential oils are the safest oils available, and the only oils I trust to consume.

Adding essential oils will give you the internal benefits of the oils you choose to add.

For example, you could:

  • boost your immune system 
  • calm stress 
  • energize

doTERRA Peppermint

Peppermint is cooling and soothing to the dry parched skin on your lips.

doTERRA Wild Orange

Wild orange is packed with anti-oxidants, tastes and smells sweet and delicious.

You can pick up this inexpensive starter kit with lemon, lavender, and peppermint here.  

All three oils would be great in this recipe, and also have many other therapeutic uses.
