A luxurious violet coloured lip scrub with the wonderful scent of lavender.
I almost feel apologetic posting another lavender recipe. We’re starting to build up quite a collection here, including honey lavender body butter, lavender bath bombs, lavender linen spray and even this delicious lavender limeade. But then again, it’s lavender, so how can you possibly grow tired of this gorgeous flower? While I long for the day that it will be in full bloom again in my garden, I am currently writing this as I am sitting in my office overlooking our snow covered garden. It has finally snowed here in Aargau, Switzerland…and it’s March. What?! Isn’t this supposed to be the time for warmer temperatures and the transition to spring? No, apparently 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 focus my energy on indoor projects, such as the master bedroom.
Getting back to the main topic of today though, namely this fragrant lavender lip scrub. It makes an 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, violet food colouring 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.Print
