Homemade lip balm for chapped lips!

The always excellent Food Renegade has a great recipe for some homemade lip balm. I use organic virgin coconut oil (found in health food stores, Garden of Life is my favorite brand), and organic olive oil. Beeswax comes already flaked or shredded at most hobby stores, make sure it’s not full of extra scents or chemicals! Can’t wait to make this tomorrow, going to find some good extracts to use for scent/flavor. Enjoy!

Guuuhhh…

Eating the foods you crave seems natural until you realize their cost to you and your health. Craving a pile of pancakes doesn’t mean your body needs them. At one time in your life you learned to like these and other starchy foods. That means that, given the chance, you can unlearn that craving and instead learn to like healthier foods.
