Plumping Lip Balm with Cinnamon

Instructions

Lip Scrub with Cinnamon

  • Combine the above ingredients in a mixing bowl. Apply to lips with fingertips and gently slough off dry, dead skin cells by scrubbing in circular motions. Rinse with warm water and follow with lip balm.

Plumping Lip Balm with Cinnamon

  • In a double boiler, melt the coconut oil and beeswax over low heat. Remove from the heat. Then add the vitamin E liquid (puncture the capsules and squeeze), honey, and essential oil.
  • Transfer to lip balm containers or a small jar. You’ll have about 5–10 minutes until it starts to solidify.
  • Use the lip balm whenever your lips feel like they need a pick me up and some extra moisture.

Notes

Once or twice a week use of this scrub should be the amount needed to transition into fall and treat the chapped lips that occasionally accompany the season.
You will notice some tingling when using cinnamon or cinnamon essential oil. But if it feels painful, stop using it immediately.
