Make your own DIY lip scrub with brown sugar and coconut oil and package it in a repurposed vintage container
I love vintage containers and I pick them up second hand whenever I find them for a couple of dollars. You can use them to store all kinds of things and I especially like using them for self care products. They are great to store this DIY lip scrub in. The lip scrub can be made with ingredients you already have on hand.
Brown sugar (or white sugar)
Coconut Oil (or olive oil)
Flavoring (I am using Rose water and strawberry but you can also use vanilla)
Rose petals (optional)
Bowl for mixing
Add two tablespoons of brown sugar to your mixing bowl. Remove any clumps.
Add one tablespoon of coconut oil.
Sprinkle a teaspoon of crushed rose petals (optional)
Add a half teaspoon of rose water (optional)
Add about 5 drops of flavoring.
Mix well incorporating all ingredients. Depending on how you like your lip scrub texture add more sugar if your mixture is too wet or more oil if it is too dry.
Spoon your lip scrub into your clean vintage container.
I added a small vintage souvenir spoon to make it easy to portion out the lip scrub without using your fingers.
Tie the spoon onto the container with a thin ribbon to complete your packaging.
So here you have an eco friendly repurposed container with you homemade lip scrub.
You lip scrub is complete and ready to use or give as a gift!
