• 1tsp Coconut Sugar
• 1 tsp Manuka honey 
• 1 scant tsp of Coconut Oil 

In a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar, Manuka honey and coconut oil. If you desire extra moisture, add a few more drops of coconut oil and mix well.

Once your lip scrub mixture is ready, apply a small amount to your lips using your fingertips. Gently massage the scrub in circular motions for about one minute, allowing the sugar granules to exfoliate and the honey to deeply moisturize. You may feel a slight tingling sensation as the honey works its magic.

After exfoliating, rinse off the scrub with warm water, or gently wipe it away with a soft cloth. Or, since this scrub is so delicious, simply lick off the scrub (its safe to eat) Pat your lips dry and revel in the immediate results—a noticeably smoother and plumper pout.

For the final touch, apply a nourishing lip balm or a dab of pure Manuka honey to seal in the moisture. Admire your refreshed lips as they glisten with natural radiance.
