XOXO - Love Ya!  What a cute and light way to express your affection.   St. Valentine's Day, is the day to celebrate and show appreciation to your loved ones.  Some people might think that this is a special day just for lovers, couples, but in essence, it is really for everybody.  

There are so many kinds of "LOVE", sisterly, brotherly, pet members, friends, the list goes on. I got together recently with some of our Creative Girlfriends and indulged in some chocolate yummies!  It was great getting together and wonderful celebrating CHOCOLATE!  We have decided to do this monthly, title:  Chocolate Therapy!  LOL!

As a token of my appreciation for the Creative Girlfriends, I made some lip smacker with my unique recipe and designs for them.  Want to try this as a gift idea?  Let's go...

You will need to sterilize the containers by putting them in boiling water and air-dry.  Put blended oils in a double-boiler (glass or metal heat-safe bowl over a pot of steaming water).  Remember not to cook the oil, just gentle heat to warm them.  Add white beeswax (cosmetic grade), to pot and blend in with wooden spoon.  When mixture melted together, pour into lip balm container and let it cool to set. Design your own labels and it's done!  Place them in pretty chiffon bags with a lovely card.

Anne's lip smacker recipe:

1 cup Grapeseed oil
2 teaspoon organic coconut oil
1 tablespoon almond oil
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon orange oil
1 teaspoon peppermint oil
1 teasppon rosemary extract 
1 teaspoon vanila oil
3 to 4 small semi-sweet chocolate chips (baking type)
2 tablesppon white beeswax flakes (cosmetic grade)

Use high quality edible organic ingredients.

Enjoy!  Happy Valentine's Day ^^
