D.i.y Lemony lip scrub

Winters almost here & I'm stoked because I love everything about it, but I really could do without the chapped/cracked lips. Don't even think about cracking a smile, cause they literally will. So rather than buying myself a lip scrub I decided to make it. I love the way organic products feel, perhaps its the fact that I made it at home, but I really do feel a difference than store bought. Not only that but they are so simple to make at home. If you have a kitchen then you'll have the ingredients. 


#1. A small container. 
I used a leftover product container.
#2. 1/4th tsp of Lemon or lime
#3. 3 tsp of white sugar or brown sugar 
#4. 3 tsp Unfiltered/Raw honey
#4. 1/4th tsp olive oil
#5. 15 minutes of your time

Step one: Add your honey and Suga. I used a chopstick to mix the ingredients because seeing as I am a klutz this is the safest alternative for me. In other words no mess. 

Step two: Now add the olive oil and lemon juice. If you find the lip scrub to be a little bit to liquidy, you can always add more sugar. 

When you apply this delicious edible lip scrub you will move your finger in a circular motion for about 1-2 minutes. You could either wipe it off with a damp washcloth or eat it all up. Remember that Keeping this lip scrub in the fridge will make it last longer (about two weeks). There you have it a lip scrub to fight against those nasty chapped lips.

D.I.Y citrus body scrub

I'm so sad to see summer leave. Yet I am jumping with joy that I'm going to be able to wear sweaters, splash in rain puddles, eat 10x more than I already do, and everything else that comes with fall/winter.  This scrub is my way of holding on to summer by a string. 

1. 1 cup of white pure cane sugar
2. 1/2 a cup of coconut oil / olive oil
3. 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
4. 1 lemon

1. Place sugar in a bowl along with vanilla, zest 
of one whole lemon, and the juice of half the lemon.
 **Remember to zest first then cut the lemon.

2. Slowly pour in the coconut oil/ olive oil and stir. That
way you can see how liquidy you'll want your scrub. 

3. Place in a container or jar, tie a string with a label and voila!

Now your ready to use it in the shower! I love to scrub it all over my legs, then lather on my shaving cream. You will not believe how clean of a shave you'll get. OH and a helpful tip is to shower 6 mins after you've entered the shower. It prevents ingrown hairs.

The days I feel like sharing I make double the amount. I like to place them in the fridge, that way when a birthday comes along I'm prepared at all times! Did I mention it smells delicious? Im not going to lie, I've had a taste or two. Believe me you'll get curious too.
