Homemade Beauty: Lip Scrub with kids

Kids made Lip scrub today with 3 ingredients that we already had in our Kitchen. It was a simple and fun project that they really enjoyed, especially the kids. I try to teach kids to make whatever they can at home and from scratch and whenever they can instead of always buying it as the first option. Instilling the idea of being producers rather than consumers is crucial at a young age. AR always has chapped lips so we made these lip scrubs for all of us. These have always helped his chapped lips. H of course love making it since it's a beauty product. Also teaching them that our beloved used to do things himself (Peace and blessing be upon him).

Kid's lip scrub
Here is what we used in the kids version of the scrub:
  • 1 tsp - organic coconut oil
  • 2 tsp - organic cane sugar
  • dash - organic cinnamon 
Adult's lip scrub
Here is what I used for the adults scrub:
  • 1 tsp - organic coconut oil
  • 2 tsp White sugar 
  • 2 drops lavender essential oil
  • 1 drop Eucalyptus
  • Dash of grated lemon 
Optional additions when making it for adults or giving as a gift:
  • Food coloring (gives it a LUSH touch)
  • Coffee
  • Brown sugar instead of cane sugar and white sugar
  • Olive oil
  • Honey

Enjoy the recipe and polish those beautiful smiles!
