Pumpkin Pie Lip Scrub
Brown sugar has become a popular beauty ingredient along with other items commonly found in our pantry.
When it comes to skincare, brown sugar is a great:
Exfoliant: softer than white sugar, brown sugar can be used as a gentle exfoliant to scrub away dead skin cells in sensitive areas, such as the face
Humectant: absorbs moisture from the surrounding environment and traps it on the skin
Honey is a wonderful:
Moisturizer: another natural humectant, honey is great for locking moisture onto the skin
Antiseptic + antibacterial: honey kills the microorganisms and bacteria that cause dryness
And Pumpkin Pie spice has a collection of beneficial ingredients:
Cinnamon: irritates the skin/lips to increase blood flow to the area; contains the terpene linalool
Ginger: increases blood flow to skin/lips to plump; contains the terpene pinene
Nutmeg: contains antioxidants and has been used to lighten dark skin/lips; contains the terpenes myrcene and pinene
Clove: increases blood flow to skin/lips to plump; contains the terpene myrcene
About the Recipe
Winter has officially hit, and dry-chapped lips are something we struggle with every year. This lip scrub is perfect for refreshing the lips and giving them a little extra plumping "oomph." If you don't need to plump (lucky you), simply leave out the Pumpkin Pie spice and scrub away!

favorite lip balm (to moisturize after your scrub)

Rinse (or lick) and hydrate with your favorite lip balm
Opportunities for Cannabinoid Infusion
If you'd like to enhance this recipe with cannabinoids, consider using one of the products below. We recommend using between 5-30mg of CBD per serving, depending on your needs and body weight (typically 1-5mg of CBD per 10 lbs of body weight). Remember to always start low and go slow when it comes to cannabinoids, and be sure to read our CBD Safety article and talk to your doctor before incorporating something new into your routine.
Papa & Barkley Essentials Hemp Drops CBD Tincture
If you'd like to enhance your lip scrub with cannabinoids, you can add cannabis flower to your LEVO herb pod or add an available tincture to your recipe.
We added 1 droppers of Papa & Barkley’s full-spectrum CBD tincture to enhance it with the healing properties of CBD.
This tincture is a whole plant extraction made with hemp grown in Colorado and carried in fractionated coconut or MCT oil. It is a lipid infusion, meaning that it uses no solvents in the extraction process and retains a full range of phytonutrients, including all of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes. A full dropper of their 450mg bottle contains 30mg of CBD, and the dropper has measurements on the side for easy dosing.
LEVO Oil Infusion Machine
If you're in a legal state or have access to hemp, you can also add available cannabis flower to your LEVO herb pod to infuse the butter in this recipe. To infuse cannabis flower with butter, set your LEVO to 165˚F for 2.5 hours.
