DIY: Lip & Body Scrub

If you're a fan of Lush's lip scrubs, this post is definitely for you. I love that their lip scrubs are edible, but the products can be a little out pricey for the amount you get. Don't get me wrong, the products are great and generally last a long time, but why pay more when you can make something similar at home for a fraction of the price?

All you'll need for this is a sealable container, sugar, olive oil and a spoon. I chose to use a meyer lemon olive oil to add a little flavor. Any flavor or unflavored olive oil will do (I'd stay away from garlic though—unless you're into that kind of thing). 

Step 1: Add desired amount of sugar to jar

Step 2: Add olive oil

Step 3: Mix together

Step 4: Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the mixture is at the desired consistency

Step 5: Apply to lips or body

The great thing about this scrub is that it can be used on your legs in the bath or shower and then your legs feel like dolphins. It's wonderful. Plus with flavored olive oils you don't even need to use lotion after.
