This fresh and minty chocolate chapstick might just inspire more kisses. Guys, gals, and kiddos alike will always be ready to pucker up and smile on, with this all-natural chapstick.

1. Infuse Your Herbal Oil

Rose Petals Lavender Flowers Calendula Flower Lemon Balm Clove Beet Hibiscus Comfrey Coconut Oil Fill a glass jar 1/3 of the way full with equal parts of each herb. Cover herbs in coconut oil (more easily done if oil is slightly melted). Place lid on jar. Set jar on top of a towel in a crockpot filled with water, on the warm setting for 3 days. Watch water level and be very careful not to pour cool water on a hot jar, as this can cause it to explode. After 3 days, remove the jar from heat, let cool, and strain off herbs. Now you have an Herbal Infused Oil!
