DIY Lip Scrubs

Have you ever noticed that no matter how much lip balm you put on your lips in the winter, they always end up chapped? A simple solution to this problem is regular exfoliation. There are tons of products out there that do the trick, however a lot of them are quite pricey. What if I told you that you don’t have to spend a fortune on purchasing expensive lip scrubs? Given the fact that lip scrubs are made of two main components: an exfoliant and a nourishing agent, making them at home is quite easy. All you’ll need is some cooking essentials such as sugar, honey and coconut oil. Intrigued? Keep on reading. Here are two recepies I recently tested and worked like a charm!



  • 1 tsp Cocnut Oil
  • 2 tsp Brown Sugar

1. Mix the two ingredients together. If the paste is too wet, add a bit more sugar. If it turns out too dry, simply add a bit more oil.
2. Rub on your lips in circular motion for 2 minutes.
3. Rinse with luke warm water.
4. Apply lip balm.


  • 2 tsp Lavender Honey ( or normal honey will do)
  • 2 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 drop Lavender Oil
  • a few drops of water or olive oil

1. Mix the honey and sugar together.
2. Add a few drops of water, or olive oil as the honey and sugar mixture gets quite sticky.
3. Add a drop of lavander oil, or any other essential oil you really like. Mix well.
4. Rub on your lips in circular motion for 2 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water.
6. Apply lip balm.

Don’ t forget to store your homemade lip scrubs in your fridge, packed in a clean, airtight container. Use them 2-3 times per week for optimal results. Here’s how mine turned out. I reused some old jam jars I’ve saved from a while ago. Aren’t they cute?

Happy DIY-ing everyone!
