Kiss me- I'm Irish!

It seems that the cold weather is dragging on and on this year! I don't know about you, but it has greatly affected my skin this year. I especially have a difficult time keeping my lips soft and shiny - so in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day here is a simple lip scrub to exfoliate those lips! This combination of ingredients works because the sugar sloughs away dead skin, while the honey, which is a humectant, helps your lips retain moisture. The Olive oil is also moisturizing, while the peppermint and orange lift your spirits out of the never-ending winter gloom! Just mix these ingredients together, massage into lips and wipe with a warm cloth. Follow with your favorite lip gloss!

1 Tablespoon of Sugar
1 Tablespoon of Honey
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
3 drops of sweet orange essential oil
2 drops of peppermint essential oil

Essential oils should be available at your local health food stores - if not, you can buy some at my favorite shop, Cosmic Flower. Have fun and go kiss your sweetie! (only if they're wearing green of course! :)
