This lip scrub is not only beyond easy but it is the perfect way to show yourself a little love or include as the perfect gift for friend or family member. I list some great ideas down below!
This recipe takes literally less than 5 minutes to minutes to prep, which is perfect for all of us on a time budget. It’s also budget friendly.
Making your own lip scrub will cost a little but more upfront than going to lush and buying some, but you will get so many batches out of these ingredients AND they are an amazing gift to give to friends or family if you are on a budget but want to give something thoughtful and something people will actually use and love!
A lot of companies intentionally don’t disclose what’s in their products- scents, colorants, preservatives, etc because they are terrible and toxic for you. That’s why you can have total peace of mind making your own!
The good news is, if you don’t like lavender, or you are making a gift for your friend and you know they love bergamot and rose, then go ahead and customize these scents differently! There is endless possibilities. Struggle with stress and anxiety like I do?

Just ALWAYS make sure to look up what you are putting in your DIY concoction and do a patch test first!
Don’t get me wrong, this is an amazing treat for yourself that will leave your lips soft as a baby’s bottom. But, this is just the perfect gift to give to a loved one for :
