Fresh Blueberry Lip Scrub

Finished Blueberry Lip Scrub

We are going to start out the day by making a Fresh Blueberry Lip Scrub. After making that delicious Fresh Blueberry Lip Balm I want to try the Blueberry Flavor Oil in a lip scrub. I think that often people underestimate a lip scrub. They are awesome! I always use a lip scrub when I am recovering from chapped lips. It’s very helpful in getting all the dead skin off my lips and leaves them feeling extra smooth. Plus, we have included Vitamin E Natural in this recipe which is super good for your skin!

This is the first time I have ever made a lip scrub so I am definitely inexperienced as a maker. On my first batch I melted the Mango Butter and Sunflower Oil together. Then I added my flavor oil, lip color, Vitamin E Natural, and the sugar. Once I got the finished product in the jar and it was set up I realized this product was way too hard and was near impossible to scoop out of the jar. I turned to my more experienced co-workers and said, “HELP!”

Tina advised me to try treating this recipe like an actual food recipe, I needed to cream my butter and sugar together. On my second time at it I weighed everything but the flavor and lip color into a chopper/grinder attachment for an immersion blender. I then blended until all the ingredients were completely mixed, then I added the Blueberry Flavor Oil and Blue Lip Color and again, blended until it was fully mixed.

Once it was finished I almost jumped for joy! IT WORKED! After using the chopper/grinder attachment I found that the lip scrub was nice and fluffy instead of being so condensed like it was the first time around. I am so excited that this lip scrub turned out okay because I love the flavor and I love the way it makes my lips feel.

Q.S. Blue Lip Balm color

Q.S. in this recipe stands for quantity sufficient. With all of our lip balm colors a little bit goes a long way! For this recipe I dipped the end of a toothpick into the lip balm color then stirred it around in my lip scrub. It turned out a beautiful blue color, like I said a little goes a long way.

To make this recipe you simply need to weigh together all of your ingredients and use either a food processor or immersion blender with a chopper/grinder attachment. Scoop into jars of your choice. Cap, label and enjoy!
