If you intend to use essential oils in DIY recipes that you're applying to the skin, please make sure to carefully read the label first. If it has a warning that says "not for topical use" or "for aromatherapy only" DO NOT put it on your skin!
Better safe than sorry. Just leave them out and use the honey and coconut oil, which both have naturally pleasant scents.

A Few Observations From Tweaking This Lip Scrub Recipe
- I prefer to store it on my bathroom counter, as opposed to the fridge
- If you want a stronger exfoliation, reduce the coconut oil to 1 teaspoon
When I dumped the mixture into a little mason jar and kept it in the fridge, the coconut oil separated from the honey, floated to the top and hardened. I broke it up with a fork and let it sit on the counter for half a day until it softened, but thought that was a total pain. I much prefer to make a smaller batch and keep it in the bathroom, but you do what makes you feel comfortable!
