House of Herbology: DIY Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

Cocoa butter is a beauty essential applauded for moisturising skin, fading blemishes and stretch marks, and hydrating hair. High in fatty acids, cocoa butter works as a protective barrier enabling skin to hold in moisture.

During the winter months, cocoa butter works wonders at soothing chapped lips and hydrating dry skin. If you have thick or Afro hair, cocoa butter also works well as a natural styling agent.

The below recipe for cocoa butter lip balm can also be used as an all-round nourishing healing balm. The lip balm can either be stored in a small glass jar or a lip balm container.
