A few years ago I discovered the wonderful world that is essential oils! There are a million and two (and probably more) reasons I love essential oils! And there are at least that many ways to put them to practical use! I’ve made everything from my own laundry soap, to mood/energy boosting oil blends to skin care and beauty products!
I have to admit, that last category is probably my favorite! There are just so many amazing combinations and ways to use essential oils on and in your body when it comes to your beauty routine. One of the very first DIY Beauty projects I tried was a sugar lip scrub… and since then I’ve been hooked!
I love coming up with “flavor” ideas and playing around with the process, not to mention the fantastic results! Who doesn’t love soft, kissable lips???
My latest flavor combination for a sugar lip scrub, is the stuff that summer dreams are made of! This Raspberry Lemonade concoction is Delicious with a capital D! In fact its so good, I might be using it more often than necessary, just so I can lick my lips to get a taste!

Want to make your own Raspberry Lemonade Sugar Lip Scrub?
Here’s what you’ll need:
In a small bowl, mix the sugar and drink mix together.
Add coconut oil and essential oil.
Store in air tight container for up to 4 weeks.
Take a small amount of your sugar lip scrub on your finger, rub all over your lips in a gently, but firm circular motion. Lick or wipe off access.
Why should you exfoliate your lips with a sugar lip scrub like this?
Exfoliating and removing the dead surface of your lips brings out new fresh layers, making lips soft, smooth and kissable! Not to mention that a smooth lip “canvas” is important when it comes to your lip cosmetics! Lip exfoliation, with something like this sugar lip scrub, helps your lips retain moisture longer, and that will helping to prevent cracked lips!
Regular use of a sugar lip scrub can help you avoid the effects of exposure to wind and cold, and chapped lips! The coconut oil provides instant moisture that will keep your lips soft and kissable too!
With as often as I’ve been using this DIY Raspberry Lemonade Sugar Lip Scrub, I’m pretty sure I might have the softest lips on the planet!
