Sarah, Beauty Blogger at Just Sarah xoxo, has tried out a DIY Manuka Honey lip scrub recipe for us! An easy to follow recipe to create a simple lip scrub that can be prepared at home

This quick-to-prepare scrub is an essential for every season. We can’t escape chapped lips in the summer or winter, so why not keep a small jar of the scrub to hand, it is so easy to make.

"I would suggest using it a couple of times a month, especially if you are a lipstick gal! Let’s face it, chapped dry lips plastered in matt liquid lipstick is a no go!!!"


  • 1 tablespoon of Manuka Doctor Manuka Honey
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • Brown sugar

The oh-so simple steps:

  • Step 2 - Add 1 teaspoon (small spoon) of brown sugar and mix away
  • Step 3 - If the mixture is too stiff add a little more coconut oil

  • Step 5 - Apply to the lips in a circular motion for a few minutes, then dab off
