Serves: 2 lip balm pots


What you will need:

Orange Matcha Lip Balm:

 

Chocolate Mint Matcha Lip Scrub:


What to do:

For the Orange Matcha Lip Balm:

1. Melt 3 teaspoons of coconut oil

 

2. Place in a small bowl with 1 teaspoon of matcha and mix until all the lumps have gone


3. Carefully pour into the mini matcha tin and pop in the fridge to set for 30 minutes

 

4. Use as required! (Be careful when removing the lid if you keep your lipbalm in your pocket or in a hot car – it may have melted, just let it cool down and it will set again)

 

For the Chocolate Mint Matcha Lip Scrub:

1. Melt 2 teaspoons of coconut oil

 

2. Place in a small bowl and mix with 1 teaspoon of matcha until all the lumps have gone

 

3. Add 4 drops of almond oil and mix

 

4. Add peppermint essential oil 6-8 drops (or until it reaches your desired strength) and mix

 

5. Add 1 teaspoon sugar, mix

 

6. Carefully spoon into mini matcha tin and pop in the fridge to set for approx 30mins. The scrub won't completely set but will firm up

 

7. Use as required – the skin on your lips is very delicate, so you only need to use a little of this scrub at a time: buff your lips gently with the scrub then gently wipe off to be left with beautifully soft, exfoliated lips!

 

Enjoy!
