Not only do I love riding, like running and being active, but I love crafts. Normally my crafts involve glue guns but I have been maturing in my skills…
So, earlier in the season I experimented with lip balms. I made peppermint ones and they were a success!
Now I’m combining my lip balm skills and adding in a lip scrub, so now people (friends, family, loved ones) can not only have a nice pepperminty lip balm but also a smoothing scrub to start things off!
This makes great little gifty things for Christmas.
I call my lip scrubs ‘Bubblegum’ lip scrubs and dyed them pink!
It’s so easy:
- I used 1/2 cup white sugar,
- 1 drop pink food dye,
- 1 tsp vanilla (white),
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, and
- 1 tsp cocoa butter (melted).
Mix the whole shebang together, add your pink food dye, and voila! Bubblegum lip scrub. Parcel it out into cute little containers. I used jam jars, with the labels removed and the lids spray-painted blue. Just boil them first!
This also feels super nice on your hands, if you want to make a bigger batch to use as a really nice gelato-type of hand scrub.
Next up- I am going to try my hand at making a peppermint foot scrub with salts. Should be good!
