Peppermint Lip Scrub Recipe

Peppermint-Lip-Scrub-RecipeAnother beautiful Friday and that means another DIY project.  This week:  make your own lip scrub with natural ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

There’s no need to spend money on a lip scrub when you can make it yourself – for less – and you control what goes in it.

So gather up your supplies, and say goodbye to rough, dry lips! Try out this Peppermint Lip Scrub Recipe below.

Peppermint Lip Scrub Recipe


  • One Pot for storage
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar
  • Peppermint oil
  • Almond Oil/Vitamin E oil
  • Glass Ramekin (for mixing)

Peppermint Lip Scrub Instructions

To make:  Pour the sugar into the ramekin and then add the oils depending how you want the consistency of the lip scrub. I used about a quarter of a teaspoons of each oil as I like to add the liquid so there is enough flavor and enough liquid for it to hold together, but not so the solution is runny.  A variant of this scrub is that it can be used with lemon oil as well, or generally any other COOKING oil you like the taste of!

To Use: To use the scrub dab a small amount onto lips and rub together to gently exfoliate. You can then lick off the scrub or wipe off with a cloth.  This product can be stored at room temperature.

Tip:  If you have Vitamin E capsules, poke one with a pin and squeeze the oil into your Peppermint Lip Scrub Recipe.
