An easier lip balm.

Coconut oil melts only at body temperature. That of course is 98 degrees and for that reason it makes a perfect lip balm. Far more perfect than any made with beeswax because. its softer on the lips as well. Its very easy to add any flavor you want to it. My favorite for winter in mint. If you add 1/4 tsp cocoa powder to 2 tsp melted coconut oil you can create lip balm that is reminiscent of sipping mint hot chocolate. Allow some whole vanilla beans to sit in a pot at 98 degrees for a while and you will have wonderful vanilla scented lip balm as well.
