Easy Winter Skin Care Recipes
If you’ve been dying to make your own homemade lip balms for a while, but haven’t yet taken the plunge, now’s your chance! Wholesale Supplies Plus, one of my favorite bath and beauty suppliers for many years, has a wonderfully easy Cranberry Lip Scrub and Body Butter Craft Kit! It comes with everything you need to make ten fabulous homemade cranberry DIY lip scrubs and five jars of cranberry body butter.
I was lucky enough to get to try out this simple to execute kit for myself and found the steps to be easy to follow even for novice crafters. And for right around $37 (includes shipping) this kit is an affordable way to enjoy an afternoon craft night with your family, make favors for an upcoming event or even craft your own products to sell. (You can find the DIY lip scrub and cranberry body butter recipe below.)
I was especially excited to try Wholesale Supplies Plus’ cranberry body butter that comes with this kit as to contains not only a blend of some of my favorite ingredients – shea butter and jojoba oil, but it also contains Cranberry Fruit which is packed with antioxidants. However, as the cranberry body butter – and the resulting products this kit creates – are unscented, I added a few extras to make it a little more fun.
You can feel free to customize your lip scrubs and butters with your favorite scents and flavors or leave the rich and luxurious cranberry butter fragrance free to accommodate those who may have allergies.
To make your own cranberry DIY lip scrubs and body butters, follow the lip scrub and body butter recipes and instructions below. Or visit Wholesale Supplies Plus’ Lotion and Skin Care Library for the original version of the recipe.
DIY Lip Scrub (And Body Butter Recipe)
(Or buy the kit here.)
Instructions for Making the DIY Lip Scrub:
You’ll need a few tools and materials to make this DIY lip scrub and body butter. To get started you will need a digital kitchen scale, a microwave, ten oval lip balm tubes, 5-6 3 oz. low profile jars with lids, a few plastic droppers, spoons for mixing and a beaker or glass pyrex measuring cup.
I really love the little beaker that comes with this kit as it makes pouring lip balms as well as DIY lip scrubs super easy and mess free.
To get started, weigh out 1.25 oz. of the cranberry body butter into the beaker, then melt in the microwave. (It took about 50 seconds for my batch to melt.)
Once the cranberry body butter blend melts, measure out three Tablespoons (approximately 1.5 oz.) of white cane sugar and stir into the melted butter. (If you want to use a flavor oil for your DIY lip scrub like I did, use a plastic pipette or dropper to measure out up to 4 ml of flavor oil and stir into the mixture. I used 2 ml of a chocolate flavor oil and 2 ml of a strawberry flavor oil to make a chocolate strawberry DIY lip scrub!)
Alternately if you prefer a lip balm rather than a scrub, simply omit the sugar.
Allow the mixture to set for several minutes and thicken slightly then stir again to distribute the sugar evenly through the melted butter. Then slowly pour the mixture for your DIY lip scrubs into each of your lip balm tubes.
To prevent air bubbles, lightly tap each lip balm tube lightly halfway through then fill each tube with the remaining mixture.
Once your DIY lip scrubs have completely cooled, simply cap and label.
For homemade gifts I thought these looked super cute decorated with washi tape and little labels that I made in Open Office.
To use your DIY lip scrub, gently rub the scrub over lips to help remove dead skin cells, then rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite lip balm. (If you added a flavor oil try not to eat it!)
How to Make the Body Butter Recipe:
To make your homemade body butters place the remaining cranberry butter into a large glass pyrex measuring cup or bowl. Melt in the microwave until almost fully melted.
Remove the melted cranberry body butter blend, then stir to complete the process. (This will help to prevent the cranberry fruit from settling to the bottom.)
I wanted to scent my body butter, so I also stirred in .3 oz. (by weight) of Pistachio Macaron Fragrance Oil.
Once you’ve mixed in your fragrance, if desired, pour into your low profile jars. (The kit recommended filling five jars evenly with product, however, I found I had enough to actually fill six.)
Allow to cool, then screw on the lid and label. Again, washi tape is a simple and easy choice for decorating your jars!
