Lemon raspberry homemade lip scrub is the perfect choice for a great DIY summer beauty treatment. These flavors go together wonderfully, and it is so easy to throw together! I love making homemade beauty products like this for pampering myself or giving as gifts to friends.
A homemade lip scrub is an ideal choice for a little at-home pampering. All you have to do is mix a few ingredients together, and you have your very own at-home spa experience in minutes. I don't know about you, but I hate spending a ton of money on pricey products that probably contain ingredients I just don't want anywhere near my skin, let alone my mouth. Using this recipe, I can make something I feel safe using, and gifting to others.
Lemon Raspberry Homemade Lip Scrub
This recipe makes enough lemon raspberry homemade lip scrub to fill 2 small lip balm containers. If you plan to gift this to friends, you'll want to double the recipe. Since the lip balm containers are so inexpensive in bulk quantities, I usually buy 25-50 at a time and store in my craft closet. That means I can whip up a gift item in just minutes anytime I need one!

This lemon raspberry flavor is one of my favorites and is ideal for summer months with the bright fruit flavors.

It is rare to see a reaction, but it is always a good idea to play it safe, especially when using on your lips.

Play with other favorite flavors and essential oils or extracts to create unique lip scrubs you love You can easily make bulk batches and store for gifts, or make as needed.
