Naturally Soft Lips
Couple tsp Cocoa powder
Ten drops lemon balm
2 shakes of lavendar essence (about 4 drops)
About 3 TBS coconut oil
1-2 drops vanilla extract
I just mixed it in a bowl then scooped it into some emptied out old lip balm containers. Then I put it in the freezer.
The cocoa doesn't tint your lips, but your lips do have a natural healthy color it seems to bring out. (Probably from healthy moisturized lips)
Because it melts so easily, I wouldn't suggest putting it in you pocket. This stuff is good for putting moisture back into your lips... not giving you a lasting gloss. It seems to not last long but I've noticed that after two uses my lips were really healthy and not needing chapstick or anything else.
I used a little straight coconut oil in my palm for a back massage the other day, and loved the way it rubbed in. And as I mentioned earlier I use it on my face at night after I wash it, and my skin has been soo soft since I started doing that. (But like I said, how much of that is just because my skin was so dehydrated before??) Anyways, hope u can use this :)
