Do you remember a winter being colder than this? I live in Louisiana and I can’t remember it ever being so COLD. I just traveled to Colorado last week and it was WARMER in Colorado than it was here in Louisiana. Go figure! With all of this cold weather my whole body has been dry and cracked, especially my lips. I’m not sure if it was the Colorado dry climate, the flying, or just the cold, dry weather in general that has me chapped, but this Lemon Honey Sugar Lip Scrub was exactly what the doctor ordered. I just love a good sugar scrub recipe.
My lips are so super soft now. I just followed up my lip scrub with my easy to make moisturizing lip balm. My lips feel so clean and refreshed, and I think I look much better without the rough chapped lip look going on!
You can make this super simple sugar lip scrub in just a few minutes with only a few items on hand. You will need a Small container to hold the scrub. You will also need:
- organic virgin coconut oil
- Lemon essential oil
Lemon Honey Sugar Lip Scrub
It really doesn’t take a lot of this recipe to fill a container, so if you want to make about 4 containers worth of lip scrub (to keep extra on hand for this winter) follow the recipe below. If you want to make less, just divide it by 4 to make 1 container to see how you like it.
- 3 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp honey
- 6-8 drops Lemon essential oil
Sugar Scrub Recipe
I like the light fresh taste with the lemon and honey, so yummy! Take all of your ingredients and mix together well with a spoon.
After mixing, transfer the sugar scrub to small containers.
To use: Scoop a small amount from the container and rub in a circular motion with the tip of your fingers for about 10-15 seconds. Ahhh….so nice and smooth!
Finish your lip beautification process by applying your moisturizing lip balm.
This routine will keep your lips clean and fresh for the winter. Not to mention, your favorite lip stick will be so much prettier with freshly scrubbed lips.
If you and your lips are experiencing the winter blues, spruce things up with this delicious Lemon Honey Sugar Lip Scrub today.

I bet it smells so good. I love citrus this time of year.
My lips are rarely dry and yesterday was their first day in ages. It was rough! So dry and painful!
Ugh, this weather had mine so dry, but they are ALL BETTER!:-)
