Step 2: Pour 12.5 full droppers of Macadamia Nut Oil into your sugar. If you cannot get the dropper full, then put 25 half droppers in the sugar.

Macadamia Nut Oil

Benefits of Macadamia Nut Oil: It is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which means the fat molecules have one double bond in the fatty acid chain with all of the remainder carbon atoms being single-bonded. Macadamia Nut Oil also contains an antioxidant called Squalene. This protects your skin from free radical damage. Not only does it moisturize your skin, but it contains anti-bacterial properties and reduces acne, skin irritations, and balances skin tone. Macadamia Nut Oil is rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids as well, making it an excellent choice to soften dry lips.

Step 3: Mix sugar until it is evenly coated.
