How Do You Make a Sugar Lip Balm?

In a mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients into a thick paste to make sugar scrub lip balm. The ingredients are coconut oil, brown sugar, honey, water and essential oils. Together, they make a lip scrub with anti-inflammatory properties, as well as exfoliating and moisturizing agents. You need measuring spoons, a mixing bowl and a small container. This project takes only a few minutes to complete.

  1. Mix the base

    Mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of honey in a small mixing bowl until it reaches a thick, creamy consistency. The coconut oil needs to be solid but still soft enough to mix with the rest of the ingredients. To soften it, place the container of coconut oil in a tub of hot water.

  2. Fold the brown sugar into the base

    Carefully fold 2 teaspoons of brown sugar into the base.

  3. Add more coconut oil

    Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to make the mixture smoother.

  4. Add water and essential oils

    Add a little water to thin out the scrub. Add a few drops of essential oil, such as eucalyptus, grapefruit or peppermint into the scrub. Mix well.

  5. Place the scrub in a container

    Place the scrub in a small container with a lid to preserve freshness.
