Homemade Lip Balm and Sugar Scrub

Sharing is caring!

Hi everyone! After a short break, I’m back with another easy DIY for you! There are so many DIY posts for homemade beauty products out there, and here are two of the easiest.

The lip balm and scrub are made with 100% natural ingredients, including some from your backyard. No flower’s or herbs in your yard?…I bet the neighbor won’t mind if you return with some lip balm or sugar scrub!

Both of these crafts would be great to make for a bridal or baby shower, or if you’re just having a “girl’s night”…and I’m pretty sure that some Sangria would be a perfect pairing! I’m not going to lie, champagne was an essential “ingredient” in my crafting process.

Coconut Rose Lip Balm

What You Will Need:

  • 1/8 cup Coconut Oil (available at most grocery stores or health food stores)
  • 1/4 cup Beeswax (available at craft stores)
  • 1/8 cup Shea Butter (available at craft stores or health food stores)
  • 1 tsp Coconut or Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Rose Petals (fresh or dried), feel free to substitute a different flower or herb here
  • 1 tsp Sweet Almond Oil (available at craft stores)

*This recipe makes enough for about 6 tubes or small containers

How to Assemble:

  1. Measure all of the ingredients into a small saucepan or Pyrex container
  2. Heat on low until everything is melted, or if using microwave heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted
  3. Strain petals if you wish, I left them in, they look really pretty!
  4. Pour into sanitized containers of your choice
  5. Let cool completely (couple hours) and they’re ready to use!

*Since this recipe uses beeswax (melting point is 145 degrees fahrenheit) it will harden enough to put into empty tubes.

 Lavender Rosemary Sugar Scrub

What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1 cup Sea Salt (large or fine grain)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 tbsp Fresh or Dried Lavender
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Lavender Oil
  • 1 tsp Sweet Almond Oil

How to Assemble:

  1. Measure all ingredients into a sanitized jar or glass container of your choice
  2. Add chopped rosemary and lavender
  3. Mix together, and you’re done! How easy was that?

*This recipe is really versatile, add whatever herbs, spices, flowers, zests, and essential oil combinations you prefer!

I'm love the coconut and Rose lip balm! I want to try it but beeswax causes a bad reaction to my lips, can I use a substitute for it or can I just leave the beeswax out?

Shelf life of the lip balm?

Hi, Monica! I would say about three months, but always use your best judgment. I hope you like it!

YAY! After searching for lip balm recipes on Pinterest for a lil while here, I've finally decided on the recipe to use for my next batch -- This is it but modified! I am really excited! And to have a delicious scrub recipe too! Purrrfect.

I'm wondering though, I can substitute the Sweet Almond oil with Grapeseed oil, yes?? Also rather than extracts to use essential oil... ??

Hi, Maya! I've never tried the substitutions you mention, but I don't see any reason why not. I hope you like them!

I live in India so the coconut oil will be in liquid form half of the year. How all the recipe will become in solid form?


Tuesday 14th of March 2017

Hi, Manasa! I suppose you'll want to try the recipe during the months when the coconut oil is solid. I'm sorry I can't be of more help! I hope you enjoy it.

Hi, Shaliny! You can reheat the lip balm a bit and see if that works. I hope this helps!
