The DIY Dream Team

One of our favourite things about Young Living essential oils is how versatile they are. If you want to enjoy super soft and kissable lips in winter but are hoping to custom-make your very own products, the following formulas offer an easy-to-follow guide on how to make lip scrubs and stunning scented lip balms in no time!

Exfoliating Lavender Lip Scrub Recipe

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1-2 drops Lavender essential oil (or an essential oil of your choice)
  • Airtight container

Method

  1. Combine the brown sugar, honey, olive oil, and essential oil in a small glass container and mix until a paste is formed.
  2. To use, gently rub onto your lips in a circular motion, and then wipe or rinse off. Store in an airtight container.

Tinted Winter Lip Balm Recipe

  • One of your favourite Young Living Lip Balms (Cinnamint, Grapefruit or Lavender)
  • ¼ tube of your favourite Savvy Minerals® by Young Living Lipstick shade
  • 1-2 drops Lavender essential oil (or an essential oil of your choice)
  • 1-2 small air-tight containers

Method

  1. Empty the contents of your lip balm into a small stainless steel or glass bowl.
  2. Fill a saucepan with a small amount of water and bring it to a gentle boil before resting the stainless steel or glass bowl above the water until the lip balm melts.
  3. Once the lip balm has fully melted, remove from heat, and add your preferred lipstick and additional essential oils. Combine well, pour into small glass containers, and then let the blend completely cool in the fridge before using.

While the Young Living lip balm will help with moisturisation, your choice of lipstick will give the blend a pop of colour!

Please note that we strongly recommend NOT using any citrus essential oils or blends in lip scrubs and balms, as it could be too harsh on exfoliated skin and can be highly photosensitive. Always check the label before application to determine an oil’s photosensitivity. Research shows that the level of grapefruit essential oil included in the Grapefruit Lip Balm should pose no photosensitivity issues. To support this research, Young Living performed in-house photosensitivity testing.
