Here's a quick and easy lip scrub that will polish and condition with soothing mint.
Sweet peppermint lip scrub:
1tsp. raw sugar
1tsp. dried mint (or a bag of peppermint tea)
1tsp. olive oil
1/4tsp. organic cornstarch
1/4 tsp. agave
2pcs. of clean paper, parchment or wax paper
Put sugar and mint leaves between 2 sheets of paper and crush with rolling pin. This will give you small, irregular pieces and fine grains. Use a coffee grinder instead for a sandy texture.
Combine sugar and mint with cornstarch (if desired, to thicken). Mix with oil and agave in a clean bowl.
This minty recipe yields enough scrub for about 1 week of once-daily use.
Makes a great scrub for sore feet too.
