As with all of our recipes at Rocky Mountain Oils, you can change the essential oils used in the lip scrub depending on your preference and what you have available. Don’t have Blend of Vanilla? Try adding one drop of Peppermint instead.

I love lip scrubs, thank you for this recipe!
And thank you for suggesting substituting peppermint for the vanilla.
What is the benefit of the ginger EO in the scrub? Do you have any other suggestions for a substitute for the ginger?

    Hi Kimberlee! The ginger EO in this scrub acts as a lip plumper. If you don’t have any on hand, leave it out and the scrub will still exfoliate your lips and leave them soft and smooth.

What other things are the ginger root EO used/beneficial for? I knew about nausea/digestive but the lip plumping is an added bonus!
