I am learning to work essential oils through different aspects of our day to day life. I have a lot to learn though so I was relieved when I found out my friend Casey Wiegand has a site dedicated to all things essential oils! There are some excellent ideas on the blog, she hosts classes, and shares recipe ideas on her new Essential Oils instagram account. I am in!

This is a very simple DIY you can do to help keep you lips from getting too dry, and naturally working in beneficial oils. Just by smelling peppermint it is a tension relief and can help with headaches (I get them easily!), so I use Peppermint for this recipe. However, you can substitute with your favorites like lemon, tangerine, etc.

Essential Oil Lip Scrub
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 C. raw or turbo sugar
1 Tablespoon Vitamin E Oil (optional)
2-4 drops essential oil (I suggest wholesale prices)

Directions:
Mix all ingredients and store in an air tight container.
Rub into lips and wipe off with a washcloth.
Finish with lip balm of choice.

Enjoy your super soft smackers! You can learn the benefits of each oil through Casey’s magazine which is a super helpful visual guide.
