I grew up loving Lip Smackers. If you were a child of the 80’s or 90’s I know you know what I’m talking about. They were so delicious that I wanted to eat them! Guava was my favorite, with Chocolate Peppermint a close second. I had about 20 different flavors, I celebrated the entire collection. Well, one day I realized that those intensely flavored chap-sticks were filled with some not so great ingredients (see image below)

Being the all-natural gal that I am, I opted for coconut oil as a lip balm for quite a while instead. I dreamt of the delicious flavors of my lip balms of the past. Until I bought some homemade chocolate peppermint lip balm at a farmers market. My lips were so happy with my new find, that when I ran out I simply had to figure out how to get more. So, I made my own.
