Orange and Shea Lip Scrub Ingredients


Before starting this tutorial please make sure to read all instructions. Use caution when handling melted oils. Spray work surface, utensils and ramekin with 70% isopropanol and wipe with paper towels.

Orange and Shea Lip Scrub Step 1

Place the beeswax, cocoa butter and shea olean in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds, stirring every 20 seconds, or until fully melted.

Stir the sugar and essential oil into the scrub base.

Orange and Shea Lip Scrub Step 2

Place the scrub in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden up a bit before you pour it. If you try to pour the scrub while it’s hot, the sugar will sink to the bottom of the tins.

Orange and Shea Lip Scrub Step 3

Spoon the scrub into the tins. Place the lids on and enjoy! To use the scrub, place a tiny bit of scrub on the tip of your finger and gently scrub your lips. Gently wipe the scrub away with a damp cloth. (Or lick your lips. We won’t tell!)
