gingerbread cookie lip polish

Getting into the spirit of the holidays, I have been playing with different “holiday” scent combinations. This gingerbread cookie lip scrub works wonders at exfoliating, polishing, and moisturizing the delicate lip skin, and tastes amazing too! The best part is you probably have these ingredients in your home already. This will make a wonderful holiday gift for the people on your gift list along with some home made lip balm (coming soon).

Gingerbread Cookie Lip Polish


  • 1 tbsp organic coconut oil (moisturizing and nourishing to the skin)
  • 2 tsp sugar (exfoliating and delicious)
  • 1 tsp molasses (brightens skin, has been used traditionally in skincare for ages)
  • 1/4 tsp powdered ginger (encourages the movement of blood. To learn more about the medicinal properties of ginger check out Natural Herbal Living Magazine’s October issue)
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (improves blood movement, antibiotic, reduces redness and great for acne)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (improves blood circulation, antibiotic, invigorating and exfoliating)


Soften but do not melt the coconut oil, and combine all ingredients together. Place it in a jar and give it as a gift!

To use it, take a small amount of the scrub on your finger and rub it in a circular motion on your lips. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes and lick it off… erm… wipe it off with a warm wash cloth. But really, if you lick it off no one will blame you. This stuff is delicious!

*caution* Do not use on open sores.

    I just made this! LOVE! I just have two questions….

    How long can it be stored?

    Does it need refrigeration?

    Is it ok to use honey instead of molasses? Or would that change the exfoliating, moisturizing experience?

    My lips have been terrible this winter! I’m putting on lip balm like a million times a day. This is a godsend! Just made some for myself and I’m going to give some to friends and family, too. Aaaaand I think I’m going to multiply the recipe times about a hundred, refrigerate it, scoop it into balls, and eat it. It is seriously delicious!
