Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

Although this isn’t a food, you could technically eat it.  I have had a lip balm habit since I was about 10 years old.  Does anyone remember the Lip Smacker trend?  That was a big deal in elementary school!  But my favorite was the glass jar of Bath and Body Works berry scented lip balm that I would keep in my desk as a fourth grader.  I wanted to re-create a grown-up, all-natural version for myself, so I combined cocoa butter, extra virgin coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil for a really effective, homemade lip balm that smells like a day at the beach.  Enjoy! -Amanda
