I wonder how chocolate became associated with pretty much every single holiday? Oh to be so popular that we were needed at every major event! LOL 🙂 I don’t have to ponder very long why chocolate has made its way into practically every celebration: The stuff is Delicious! Dark, Milk, White, Semi-Sweet, and even straight up, unsweetened Cacao – I like it all! But my favorite, oh Lord help me, is Easter Candy… Cadbury, how could you?! There is nothing “good” for you in a Cadbury chocolate, but there is caramel, marshmallow, gooey Cadbury egg filling (what is that stuff anyway?)… oh my!
So even though I am now craving some thick, rich, chocolatey truffle, this DIY has NOTHING to do with eating chocolate! Nope. Zilch. Nada. Nothin’. So don’t worry- your hips are safe. Your lips, however, well that’s up to you!
If you want softer, smoother, lips for Valentine’s Day (or just because!), here is one for you, my friend!
1.5 tsp Raw, Organic, Unrefined Coconut Oil, melted
1/4 tsp raw cacao powder
1 tsp organic sugar
1/4 tsp local honey
1/8 tsp non-GMO Vanilla Extract
1,5 tsp grated organic chocolate (optional)
Melt the coconut oil (ideally over a double boiler). Combine all ingredients. Put in container and store in a cool, dark place. This recipe will make about 1 ounce of product. Gently rub over your lips, using a circular motion. Rinse. Repeat process a few times per week. Don’t put scrub on open sores or cuts on lips.
