From the colorful fruits of the cacao tree come the raw ingredients for chocolate. The two main substances obtained from the wrinkly pods are cocoa butter and unsweetened chocolate (sold as baking chocolate). This chocolate lip gloss, made from blending together cocoa butter and chocolate, is an excellent lip conditioner with a mildly sweet taste. MAKES 1/2 OUNCE

• 1 1/2 teaspoons grated cocoa butter
• 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
• 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil
• 1/4 teaspoon grated chocolate or 3 small chocolate chips (I like to use milk chocolate ones)

1. Using a water bath or the microwave, heat cocoa butter, coconut oil and vitamin E oil gently until melted. Stir in chocolate and keep stirring until melted and well blended. Pour into a small lip gloss container and allow to cool completely.

2. To use: Spread on lips with a clean fingertip or lip brush.
