A luxurious violet coloured lip scrub with the wonderful scent of lavender.
I almost feel apologetic posting another lavender recipe. Then again, it’s lavender so how can you possibly grow tired of this gorgeous flower? #sorrynotsorry I am currently writing this as I am sitting in my office overlooking our snow covered garden. Yes, it has finally snowed here in Aargau, Switzerland. This is our first proper snow we have had and it’s March. What?! Isn’t this supposed to be the time for warmer temperatures and the transition to spring? No, it’s the time for negative degrees and a thick blanket of white fluff.
For someone who already got out her gardening gear, straw hat and rubber boots this is quite a disappointment. (Just kidding, I don’t own a straw hat……yet.) So while my long-awaited gardening projects are currently on hold I am trying to enjoy the snow. We are actually going on vacation in the mountains this week. It’s going to be a week full of snow man building, snow walks, snow angels and hot cocoa. That’s a lot of snow! Speaking of snow, this lavender lip scrub here somehow reminds me of the movie Frozen. Or is it just me?
Anywho, this scrub makes a great easy and inexpensive gift for a fellow girlfriend or mother. Of course you can also totally spoil yourself with this luxurious scrub. Are we thinking the same right now? At home spa day?!
Making this scrub is incredibly easy and you only need 6 ingredients to make it! If you have granulated sugar, coconut oil and some lavender essential oil at home right now, you are good to go. The dried lavender buds, food coloring and vitamin e oil are all optional, though I highly recommend you use them, especially if you plan on giving this scrub as a gift.
- 200g white granulated sugar (1 cup)
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 5 drops vitamin e oil
- 5-8 drops lavender essential oil*
- Wilton violet food coloring
- 2 teaspoons dried lavender
- Combine sugar, coconut oil, vitamin e oil and lavender essential oil in a bowl and mix with a fork until well combined.
- Add food coloring (start with a small amount) and mix until it's evenly incorporated. Lastly mix in the dried lavender.
- Store in clean glass jars in a cool dark place.
- *I highly recommend using food grade essential oil
