Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeCreme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe

Our Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe will walk you through a few super easy steps to create ten scrumptious and sweet lip scrubs. Not only does this lip care recipe taste delicious, but it’s a fantastic product for exfoliating and moisturizing. Since winter has begun for many of us, it is the perfect time to create recipes that we can use to battle chapped lips. We all know what the unforgiving coldness of winter can do to your lips, so why not sweeten the season some lip care that is effective and super fun? Our recipe combines the sweetness of a delicious crème brulee dessert with the qualities that you’d expect in quality lip care.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe Ingredients Available at Natures Garden

All Natural Lip Balm Base

Flavoring – Crème Brulee

Clear Jar with White Lid Set 10 ml.

Disposable Pipettes

White Chocolate Wafers

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe Other Ingredients You Will Need

Scale

Mixing Spoon

Microwave Safe Bowls

Brown Sugar

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Total Weights and Amounts That Will Be Used

4 Ounces of the Natures Garden All Natural Lip Balm Base

1 Ounce of Brown Sugar

20 drops of Crème Brulee Flavoring

5 White Chocolate Wafers

10 Clear Jars with White Set 10 ml.

3 Microwave Safe Bowls

1 Disposable Pipette

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Melting the Lip Balm Base and the White Chocolate Wafers

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeInitially, you will need to find a scale that will measure in ounces. Be sure the units are set to the ounce measurement. Now, you will need a microwave safe bowl.  Then, use your scale to weigh out 4 ounces of Natures Garden’s all natural lip balm base. Next, you are going to melt the lip balm base. You can use a microwave for a minute or so to melt the lip balm base, but make sure that your lip balm base doesn’t get overheated. Remove the bowl from the microwave after a minute has passed and stir the lip balm base to determine whether it is entirely melted or needs to be microwaved longer. You shouldn’t do intervals much longer than a minute. Doing so could cause the base to overheat.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeSecond, you will need to prepare the addition of the white chocolate wafers. Add 5 of your white chocolate wafers to a different microwave safe bowl. You will want to melt the chocolate in the microwave, but the chocolate will not need to be heated for very long. It should only take about thirty seconds for the wafers to melt. It is important that the chocolate is not burnt to preserve the taste for the lip scrub. So, if you need to microwave the chocolate longer make sure you are watching it carefully.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Combine Base Ingredients

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeNow, you are going to combine the lip balm base, white chocolate, and Crème Brulee Flavoring into the bowl with the lip balm base. Once the white chocolate wafers and lip balm base are both melted, you can add the white chocolate to the liquid lip balm base. Next, using a pipette, add 20 drops of Creme Brulee flavor oil into the bowl of melted base. Quickly and thoroughly mix these ingredients together.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Separate the Top Layer From Base Mixture

Next, you will separate a portion of the base for later use. Since you will need to create a top layer for your crème brulee lip scrub, some of the lip balm base mixture needs to be separated out. So, grab the scale from before and make sure the units remain on ounces. Take your bowl containing the melted base. Weigh out 1 ounce of this mixture into a separate microwave safe bowl. This 1 ounce of lip balm base will be used as the top layer in a later step, but you can set it aside for now.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Pouring the Bottom Lip Balm Layer

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeYou will create the bottom layer of the lip scrub in this step. Your bottom layer will be creme brulee flavored lip balm.  Take your ten 10 ml. clear jars and line them up. You will need to pour the remaining 3 ounces of base lip balm mixture carefully to create a clean bottom layer in the jars. So, try to limit the lip balm getting on the sides of your jars as much as humanly possible. The jars should be filled with this base layer to just under two thirds of the way to the rim of the lip balm jar. This should leave you with about a third left to include the top layer. It is not extremely important whether you get this proportion perfectly accurate, but make sure you will have enough room for a thinner top layer to be added on in a later step.

While it is easier to just avoid getting the lip balm base on the sides of the jar to begin with, we all know that accidents can happen. Luckily, these splashes and misses that cling to the lip balm pot can be cleaned up. Simply take a toothpick and carefully remove excess white lip balm that is above the level of the layer. This will prevent streaks of white from being visible after the top layer is added. Be careful not to poke the toothpick into the layer around the edges, as this will be seen later through the clear jar.

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Creating the Top Layer

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub RecipeNext, you are going to create the top layer. At this point, it is likely that the mixture you set aside for the top layer has hardened. While you will need to re-melt this portion of the base, this step will be quick and it is important that the base layer is set up before you begin. So, you may want to wait a minute before starting this step. However, use your own discretion. If the bottom layer looks like it is already set up, then there is no need to delay.

Next, retrieve the 1 ounce of the lip balm base mixture you previously set aside. Your top layer cannot be reheated once the sugar is added. The sugar has the potential to melt or burn, which would ruin the lip scrub. Now, you can reheat this mixture in the microwave in thirty second increments. Weigh out 1 ounce of your brown sugar, add it to the base and stir. These combined ingredients will begin to make the mixture feel thick, don’t panic you still have some time. Take a spoon and scoop the top layer into the 10 ml. jars. We suggest scooping slightly more than you need, pushing down lightly to push the layers together, and smoothing the excess off the top. Once you have filled the jars, feel free to smooth out the tops. Finally, your lip scrubs are complete!

Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe: Using the Scrub

When you use this brown sugar scrub simply place a bit on your lips and scrub away.  The exfoliation of this recipe comes from brown sugar scrub, which is intended to remove any chapped skin to create more smooth, luscious lips. Our all natural lip balm base provides the moisturizing power that your lips need this time of year. The brown sugar offers a gentle exfoliation that your lips are sure to love!  You can then follow this sugar scrub up with a little bit of the bottom lip balm layer.  We are sure you will find this recipe just as delightful as we have. The scrumptious taste of this lip balm recipe comes from our Crème Brulee lip balm flavoring and a touch of white chocolate wafers. The combination of these lovely ingredients creates a lip scrub recipe that is super cute and perfect for the winter season!

We hope that you love this recipe and enjoyed creating your own Crème Brulee Lip Scrubs. It both looks and smells like a delicious dessert with an added benefit of tasting delicious. I probably shouldn’t lick the scrub off right after putting some on, but I just haven’t been able to help myself. Plus, the recipe creates quick a bit of lip scrubs, which is perfect for sharing with loved ones or saving for the holidays. Since Christmas is right around the corner, you could use these tasty lip scrubs as stocking stuffers or small gifts for your friends and family. This creation would definitely be a great gift, but I couldn’t really blame you for saving all ten for yourself.

Easy Lip Balm


This entry was posted in all natural, cosmetic recipe, fun projects, lip balm, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

easy lip balm Easy Lip Balm

Making your own lip balm is one of the easiest things to do.  By using Natures Gardens all natural lip balm base, you can quickly create your own lip balm.  With a few other supplies such as lip balm containers, flavoring, lip tints, and sweetener; you can take your lip balm to the next level.

To make your very own flavored lip balm using the all natural base, here is what you have to have:
All Natural Lip Balm Base
Lip Flavorings– now this list contains 24 different flavorings to choose from.  But, if you are wondering which flavorings are the most popular right now, they are: Juicy Watermelon, Strawberry Sorbet, Tropical Paradise, and Frozen Margarita.
Powdered Stevia (optional) but here is what you want to sweeten your lip balm or you can sweeten your lipbalm using chocolate wafers or white chocolate wafers.
Lip Tints (optional) but here if you want to tint your lips
Microwavable Bowl
Stirring Utensil
Pipettes (optional) but a great way to transfer the liquid lip balm to its container before it hardens
Containers–  this link will show a variety of lip balm containers from sticks to tins

Now, when it comes to actually making the lip balm, here are the steps:

1.  Scoop out some of the all natural lip balm base.  Place this into your microwaveable bowl.  Place the bowl into the microwave.  Heat in 30 second increments until melted.  If you are going to sweeten your lipbalm using chocolate wafers, you will want to melt the chocolate along with your lip balm base.

2.  Once the lip balm is melted, carefully remove it from the microwave.  If you are tinting your lip balm, add some colorant now and stir.  Obviously, the more colorant you add, the darker your lip balm will be.

3.  If you are adding stevia, you will want to crush it down even finer.  Because the stevia will not dissolve but only suspend in the lip balm the finer you can get it the better.  Once added, stir.

4.   Next, add a few drops of flavoring, and then stir again.

5.  Finally transfer your lip balm into its packaging.  Allow the lip balm to fully set up (which will not take too long).  Once your lip balm is firm, it is ready to use.

Making your own flavored lip balm is just that simple.  A great project to do with kids at birthday parties, sleepovers, or on a rainy day; this craft is simple, takes very little time, and is super easy to clean up.

Now, if you are interested in making your own lip balm from scratch, there are also other free recipes available on the Natures Garden website.  To view these recipes, you can simply click on this link.  Offering quite the variety, some of Natures Gardens more popular recipes are: Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm RecipeVegan Lip Butter, and the Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss Recipe, but there are many more to choose from.
