Have you ever noticed that on all those makeover shows they always focus on the person’s mouth? Your mouth is a focal point of your face.
The lips are one of the most sensitive areas of the body. They also get a lot of exposure to harsh weather conditions, such as sun, wind, and excessive cold, so it’s important to protect them with lip balms and conditioners. I like to use simple natural oils yet rich in vegetable fats, such as coconut oil, shea butter or cocoa butter. It’s also a good idea to gently exfoliate your lips with a soft toothbrush or cotton washcloth from time to time.
This lip gloss is great because it smells just like brownies and have kind of the same taste, but without the calories. It’s extremely moisturizing and will keep your lips soft and kissable!
::Chocolate Chamomile Lip Gloss::
1 tablespoon grated cocoa butter
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons grated beeswax
1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil (to preserve)
10 to 15 drops organic chamomile essential oil
1 1/2 teaspoons of chopped chocolate
Combine all of the ingredients in a double boiler. Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed, then pour into small, clean containers. Allow the lip gloss to cool before using.
To use, rub into your lips and enjoy the flavor!
