DIY#1 Candy Cane Lip Scrub

Hello!
For this post I'm gonna show you how you can make your own lip scrub, it's super easy and fast!
You don't need a lot of ingredients and to make it a bit festive I decided to add a candy cane!!
This is also a great gift to give to someone if you don't want to spend a lot of money!!
Hope you enjoy!



To make the lip scrub you are going to need the following ingredients:


 Also you are going to need a bowl to mix all the ingredients in and a small cointainer to put your final product in!
 For the sugar I recommend caster sugar if you can't find it put 1 cup of granulated sugar to your food processor and blend(not too much you don't want icing sugar) let it set for a few seconds and your caster sugar is ready!
The coconut oil is a key ingredient as it's really moisturizing, also Lush uses coconut oil in their lip scrubs!

   You can replace the almond oil with jojoba oil, whatever is easier to find they both work really well!
I added some vanilla extract for extra flavor but it is optional 
Also to make it festive and christmassy I added a candy cane, the peppermint gives a freshness that I really like!!!


Hope you liked it and try it out!!!
