As I mentioned to you last week I recently became a Young Living Essential Oil Independent Distributor-I’m absolutely in love with incorporating Essential Oils into my daily routine and eliminating manufactured chemicals from my home. One of my biggest irritations especially in the winter is having a hard time keeping my lips moisturized. I hate when my lips get chapped or flaky so I like to use a lip scrub to keep them in tip-top shape. I recently came up with a recipe for a homemade lip scrub using essential oils that I love so much I knew I had to share it with you!! It’s super easy to make and one batch lasts forever.
3 tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil
2 tablespoons Honey (I prefer local honey)
4 tablespoons Brown Sugar
4 Drops Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl and store in a glass container-I use a medium sized baby food jar and this recipe fills it perfectly! Feel free to change your essential oils to suit your taste but I don’t recommend using brands other than Young Living because you will be putting this on your mouth and many brands other than Young Living are not suitable for ingestion (Young Living oils are therapeutic grade.) I personally like the minty flavor of the peppermint but citrus would be great too I think!
If you’d like to learn more about using essential oils see my post last week or check out my new sister site The Happier Holistic. I’ve also created a Happier Holistic Facebook Group where anyone can ask questions and learn more (it’s private so you can feel comfortable discussing health issues without it showing up on your Facebook wall-just click “request to join” on the right hand side and I’ll approve you!) I also have a new YouTube video showing my Starter Kit and suggestions for how to get started using oils in your home!
Also I’d sooooo appreciate it if you could hop over to the Reece’s Bracket Challenge and vote for my Reece’s Triple Double Trifle I posted yesterday in the recipe contest! You can win a daily $100 Walmart gift card prize just for voting!!
