Blueberry Lip Scrub 10


I’ve been dreaming of blueberries and lemons recently. Particularly a blueberry muffin with lemon glaze. Yum! While blueberries are quite expensive in Utah, I decided to make a lip scrub that would hopefully curb this craving until I get a chance to get my hands on some frozen blueberries.

 

I used our Blueberry Butter because it has a light blueberry color that makes this scrub attractive. This has micronized particles of blueberries, so my favorite use for this butter is in lip scrubs.

I think our Cherry Oil is a dream. Really! It is light and pampers the skin by counteracting any dryness. Perfect for a lip scrub where we are pampering the lips and helping the skin stay flexible.

Peach Kernel Oil is another great addition to this recipe. I love the dewy finish that Peach Kernel Oil can leave on the skin and the lips really look fabulous after using any products containing this oil.

Weigh all of the ingredients into the food processor bowl. Gently pulse the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Once the scrub is mixed together, fill the jars and cap.

Yield: This recipe will fill 15 of the 10mL Lip Balm Jars.

Notes: If you want to make a small batch, you can easily use a small personal blender like I did for these photos. I used a Cusinart Attachment, but I added the flavor after I had removed the scrub from the container. I don’t want to have my savory dishes tasting like lemon!

I’m a twenty something soap snob. I’ve grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won’t tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

      Terry,
      It is easy. Rub your lips with the a pea sized amount of scrub on your finger? Don’t scrub too much or you will make your lips feel raw. Then either wipe it off or lick it off. Now apply a lip balm!

    I was wondering if anyone could help me to troubleshoot an issue I am having with my lip balm recipe that I created? I made a batch for Christmas gifts last year and it was great but I just noticed that the leftover ones are now lumpy on the top. I thought that lip balm should last well over a year? My ingredients include beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, vit E, jajoba oil, and lanolin. Has anyone had this issue or does anyone have any thoughts on what it could be? Thank you so much!

      The bumpy texture is likely fractionation of the shea butter. This can happen when the lip balm is stored at room temperature and the temperatures climb. It can also happen by storing the lip balm in a pocket. Our own body heat is sufficient to cause fractionation. To reduce your chances of having this grainy texture appear you can 1) use High Melt Point Shea Butter instead of Regular or Unrefined Shea Butter; 2) reduce the amount of shea butter in the over all formulation. From your listing of ingredients the only fat that fractionates is the shea butter.

    Tina,
    That makes sense, I usually use part refined, part unrefined to avoid that in my products but maybe for the lip balms I need to use only refined. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
