Instructions:

Step 1: Mix almond oil and honey together.

Step 2: Add the brown sugar (or sugar of choice) and mix until well combined. You always want more sugar than oil.

Step 3: Transfer your homemade lip scrub to a small mason jar.

Tip: Remember, 75% sugar/25% oil. Raw, organic honey contains the most health benefits since it has not been pasteurized. Pasteurized honey has lost all of its nutrients from being heated. This scrub will leave your lips extremely soft. The hint of almond oil also provides a bit of extra moisture & sun protection with a natural SPF of 5.

Olive Oil Sugar Scrub

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.
  • 2 tablespoons raw organic honey.
  • ½ cup organic dark brown sugar.
