How to make DIY Vanilla Peppermint Lip Scrub
2. Add the peppermint essential oil, vanilla flavoring and vitamin E oil and stir until well blended.
3. Transfer to an airtight container(s) and store up to 3 months.
Instructions for use:
1. Wet your lips and apply the vanilla peppermint sugar lip scrub generously to your lips.
2. Using your index finger, gently scrub in a circular motion. This will help the sugar exfoliate any dry and dead skin and allow the coconut oil to moisturize your lips.
3. Leave the lip scrub on your lips for about one minute. Enjoy the warm and energizing aromas of vanilla and peppermint!
4. Rinse with warm water.
5. Pat dry with towel.
6. Apply your favorite lip balm.
