Body & Soul: Flavored Coconut Lip Gloss

| February/March 2006

  • Lips are a unique part of our body in both appearance and construction. Keep yours looking and feeling their best with this simple lip care recipe.

This is a super simple and effective flavored lip gloss that combines coconut oil with your favorite flavoring. Coconut oil is especially good for dry, cracked lips, as it helps lock in moisture. Flavored oils are found easily at grocery stores or gourmet cooking shops because they are used in candy making. MAKES 1/2 OUNCE

• 1 tablespoon coconut oil
• Few drops flavored oil, such as strawberry, orange or coconut OR 1/8 teaspoon flavored extract, such as vanilla, peppermint or almond

1. Mix ingredients well in a small dish with the back of a teaspoon.

2. Spoon the mixture into a lip gloss container.

3. To use: Rub into your lips and enjoy.
