Edible gingerbread lip scrub

gingerbread lip scrubI made a gingerbread lip scrub and then I’ve eaten most of it on a toast…

But let’s start from beginning. Lately I have an obsessive urge to make my own cosmetics. It’s been a while since I made yeast face mask, or used a beer for hair wash, to be fair it was in my teens. So maybe I’m just bored with cooking, or need a DIY project, or just want  feel younger? I don’t know. But I made a my first lip scrub. It smells Christmasy.

The recipe couldn’t be easier. It takes literally 2 minutes, 5 if you need to find ingredients in your cupboard.

And if you don’t like it as a scrub, then just put it on your toast. I’m not sure which application I like more.
