Just like our skin, our lips need to be exfoliated regularly to remove product build up and dead skin cells. You can certainly buy an expensive lip scrub at the store but it’s easy enough to make your own instead. I like making mine because I know exactly what ingredients are in it.


  • White sugar
  • Coconut oil
  • Vanilla extract or peppermint essential oil
  • Small container with a lid


  • The quantities you use with depend on the size of the container you have. You will use the same amount of coconut oil as sugar so 1 cup of coconut oil and 1 cup of white sugar or 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup white sugar.
  • 1 to 2 drops of vanilla extract or peppermint essential oil. Peppermint essential oil will “plump” your lips. Vanilla will not. If you don’t mind the tingling sensation as the peppermint essential oil works, go with that. If you want something milder, use vanilla. Or use both. Totally up to you.
  • Mix everything together and store in the small container with a lid.
  • To use, gently rub against your lips to remove dead skin cells. Wipe off.

These ingredients are safe enough to use regularly. You could even let the kids use it although for them I would probably skip the essential oils and use vanilla extract instead. You can make these in a larger quantity to give as a gift. Just make a pretty label with instructions and maybe add a few lip glosses or a body scrub and you’ll be all set.

  1. Oh I’m going to make some for my mom–she will love it. I have downloaded so many freebie DIT homemade recipe books like this but have not tried them so glad you highlighted one recipe.

    For once I have all the ingredients needed except the vanilla extract, but I do have peppermint essential oil, so I’m good to go. I have the last of a gallon container of coconut oil and some older sugar since I’ve sworn it off. Perfect use for older but still good enough ingredients, lol. I’m such a little, cute jar hoarder too–have lots of those. They ship in the mail well too. Have a great weekend!
