Floral Sugar Lip Scrub Project
If the weather left your lips dry and chapped, a scrub is a great way to restore them. They get rid of dead skin and help lip balm absorb better. Granulated sugar is the perfect lip exfoliant because it’s gentle but scrubby (and it tastes good if you happen to get some in your mouth).
This Floral Sugar Lip Scrub is a combination of coconut oil, cocoa butter, and rosehip seed oil to create a texture that’s solid at room temperature. It’s quite firm, but softens up when it comes in contact with skin. If you prefer a softer texture, decrease the amount of cocoa butter. Rose Gold Mica adds a light pink hue without transferring color to lips. Passionfruit Rose Fragrance and Flavor Oil gives the recipe an irresistible floral scent.
To use, apply to clean lips and scrub. Wipe or wash away any extra lip scrub on the lips. Apply your favorite lip balm to hydrate. Depending on how high you fill each container, this recipe makes about 15 lip scrubs.

Floral Lip Scrub Project
This recipe is a skin-loving combination of sugar, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and rosehip seed oil.
About 15 Clear Lip Balm Pots
1.5 oz. Coconut Oil
0.5 oz. Cocoa Butter
0.3 oz. Rosehip Seed Oil
1 mL Passionfruit Rose Fragrance and Flavor Oil
1/4 tsp. Rose Gold Mica
4.5 oz. Granulated Sugar
In a small heat-safe bowl, add 1.5 ounces of coconut oil, 0.5 ounces of cocoa butter, and 0.3 ounces of rosehip seed oil. Place the container in the microwave on 30-60 second bursts until the cocoa butter has completely melted. Be careful when removing from the microwave as the container may be hot.
Add 1 mL of Passionfruit Rose Fragrance and Flavor Oil into the container and stir in completely. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Rose Gold Mica and stir until there are no longer any chunks of color.
Add 4.5 ounces of granulated sugar to the melted oils and stir to fully incorporate.
The exact texture of the mixture will depend on how hot it is. If the scrub is extremely hot, the sugar can fall to the bottom. If this is happening, stir the mixture until it cools. The colder it is, the more the sugar will suspend throughout the oils. Once it’s a gloopy texture (similar to the photo below), transfer the scrub into the lip balm pots. Allow them to fully cool before use. To use, apply the sugar scrub to your lips and exfoliate. Wipe or wash off any excess and apply your favorite lip balm.
