Everyone who knows me, knows that I like to kiss my husband...a lot.  So, to keep my kisser nice and supple, I like to use an exfoliating lip scrub a couple times a week.  In the past, I would go to the store to purchase some name brand scrub and use that.  But, recently I have started making my own and have ended up saving myself a few dollars and a trip to the store.  A total win-win if you ask me. 

Since I consider myself to be a true kissing advocate, I just knew that I had to share this recipe with you too!  Because, lets face it, a world with minimal kissing in it is BORING!  Therefore, the next time you can spare an extra 5 minutes, whip up some this DIY goodness and use it ASAP.  Your lips and lover will most definitely thank me later!

DIY Flavored Lip Scrub


2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1 Tbsp. Honey

a pinch of cinnamon (to plump and stimulate your lips)

1-2 drops of flavored extract (I like to use mint, vanilla, or lavender)


1. Mix the brown sugar and olive oil together in bowl.

2. Pour in the honey and mix vigorously.

3. Add the cinnamon and extract and lightly stir one last time.

4. Gently massage a small amount of the scrub on to your lips for a minute or two and then wipe, or lick, the remaining excess off.

5. Store your remaining lip scrub in an air tight container. (I store mine in a cleaned out, glass baby food jar.)

*I recommend making a larger batch of this stuff so you can store it longer and use it ALL the time.  Just remember to use equal parts of everything.

Loves and Hugs,
