Edible sweet coconut lip scrub

By March 6, 2014 DIY

Here’s a two-ingredient lip scrub that you can whip up in 60 seconds flat. This edible sweet coconut lip scrub smells and tastes great and will make your lips oh-so-soft.

Edible Sweet Coconut Lip Scrub

I have super sensitive skin.  In the winter it’s even worse because it’s dry, and my lips are no exception.

I’ve slowly been curing myself with homemade all-natural beauty products.  I started making a simple coconut scrub for my face and it’s never felt better. (I’ve also been lathering up with some homemade whipped body butter.  Smells so good!)

My lips are smiling with my homemade chapsticks, so some lip scrub seemed like the obvious next step.

This sweet coconut lip scrub is so easy to make.  All you need is some sugar and coconut oil and you’ll be ready to exfoliate, moisturize, and pucker up.

Since I love pretty little things, I designed a label to stick on my lip scrub container.  Here’s the free printable so you can use it too: Lip Scrub Label

Edible Sweet Coconut Lip Scrub

Yields: one, 1oz container of homemade lip scrub

Materials

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (I like Whole Food’s and Trader Joe’s organic virgin coconut oil)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1oz container for storage (like this or these)
  • Address label paper to print label, optional (I use address label paper compatible with the Avery 5160 address label template.)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine coconut oil and sugar with a spoon. (Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, but you can kind of smash them together.)
  2. Use the spoon or a butter knife to add the mixture to your container and screw on the lid.
  3. Label with printable label (optional).

To use your lip scrub, scoop out a pea-sized amount with your finger and massage onto your lips. Lick off the excess.  Yum!

P.S. If you’re looking for ways to use up the leftover coconut oil from this recipe, check out my simple coconut oil lotions and cute lavender lotion “sticks”.

Hi

I just made this lip scrub but used raw caster sugar instead of white as don’t have any. I do have regular raw sugar but thought the caster one might be less coarse. great and couldn’t help licking it off 🙂

Just waiting for my essential oils to arrive to try the hand scrubs and lotions… can’t wait!

For something to try i even added a drop of coconut oil to my PALMERS cocoa butter face moisteriser… wow face feels so much softer

I have been doing a lot of crafting for my Grandmother for holidays with mason jars, flowers and she loves everything so far! I’m lucky since I am a beginning crafter and my in-laws have loved everything as well. Anyway, my Grandmother is quite large and needs to have an RN bathe her. I know this is a strange question but can you think of anything that can be useful or enjoyable for her? I was thinking of the foot soak but also wondered if you have any other ideas? I love all of your scrubs and other wonderful things… Read more »

When I was pregnant with my son last summer I got horrible stretch marks, nothing I’ve tried has helped, I was just wondering if you had a homemade lotion or body butter specifically for stretch marks?
