How to make a Peppermint Lip Scrub

I love the Lush Lip Scrub in Bubblegum, and when I used it all up I thought I'd look around and see if I could make my own, as I have seen loads of people selling ones they've made. This is only the second time I have made this lip scrub using these instructions so they may be slightly off at the moment while I get used to how much you need to use. I also annoyingly didn't have any honey or food colouring at home so couldn't use any!:( anyway let's get started!

You will need:
Empty pot with lid
Olive oil
Food colouring (red, optional)
Peppermint extract
Vanilla essence

The first thing you need to do is make sure the pot is clean, dry and doesn't have any of the previous content left in! Then scoop a few spoonful's of sugar into a bowl, how many depends on how big the tub is / how much you want, and put just less than a teaspoon of olive oil, and mix together. The mixture should look similar to this!

Next add a few drops of the vanilla and peppermint, to give the lip scrub a nice flavour. You could choose different flavours, like almond, bubblegum or coconut if you had the flavourings! Then you would add a few drops of food colouring, and mix. It's best to use either a pink or red food colouring rather than blue or green as it may stain your lips that colour! Then you'd add some honey which would stick the mixture together and make it easier to apply, but I stupidly forgot to buy it today! Finally, scoop the lip scrub from the bowl and drop it into the pot, squashing it down compact to get more into the pot. This lib scrub will last for ages, taste amazing and because of the oil, will leave your lips smooth and moisturised!
