Why these ingredients?
When it comes to making a sugar lip scrub, I choose the best ingredients, and choose to make it as wholesome as possible. If you’re going to do it, do it right! Coconut oil is used in ayurveda for many purposes and can be found all over tropic cultures as an almost “cure-all.” While it may not be a cure-all, it definitely is a great ingredient for your a lip scrub. Using raw sugar is a great option since it is unbleached and will give a nice “scrubbing” texture. Finally, spearmint oil is refreshing and invigorating. By using quality ingredients, you can even use this to be a wonderful gift! Package it up nicely with a nice poem or card and you’re good to go!

When it comes to DIY, I’m for quality over quantity. I may not make everything at home, but the things I do make I choose to do with quality, natural ingredients. I also prefer ones like this that do not take a full day to do it right!
