Winter Wonder Exfoliating Lip Scrub

Found this great recipe for a lip scrub to smooth and exfoliate lips during the rough winter months or all year round. 
If you're like me, you might be constantly battling dry, flakly lips.  Yuck, I know!  
This stuff is like the fancy stuff you can buy at Sephora but quite a bit cheaper and you can make it as needed at home. 
Our local Co-op has most of the ingredients in the bulk aisle.  That way I can get as little or as much as I like. 
I like using Organic Sweet Almond Oil and Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar.
These can make great gifts too! Just grab a few of the 2 oz jars and package away! 
This stuff is YUMMY!

• 1 tsp honey
• 2 tsp olive, sunflower or sweet almond oil
• 3 tsp sugar
• 2 oz jar

Combine honey and oil in a small bowl. Add sugar and stir until you get a paste. Using your finger, apply scrub to lips, using a circular motion. Wipe scrub off with damp cloth (if you don't lick it off first 😉).
