Chocolate Peppermint Lip Balm Recipe
of Mulberry, FL
An invigorating balm that will make your lips smile!
1 oz beeswax
1/4 cup coconut oil
2-3 drops carrot seed EO
2/3 oz butters (cocoa,shea,mango)
1/4 tsp Honey
3 - 5 drops Peppermint EO
For the butter mix above, I mix equal parts cocoa, shea, and mango. The cocoa makes the chocolate, and the shea provides much more moisture and healing ability than cocoa alone. Mango is wonderful for lip balms.
Melt the butters and coconut oil over a double boiler and allow the mixture to reach 175 degrees. Let it remain over the heat for at least 20 minutes. Add the beeswax and stir until it melts.
Allow to cool briefly. Add the peppermint essential and a drop or 2 of chocolate flavor oil if you wish. You can add some cocoa powder to the balm for the natural brown color. This balm turns out mainly a natural color versus anything else, even with the honey added.
This balm has a tingling, a very refreshing feeling. The smell is delightful and it doesn't taste like anything.
Pour into lip balm tubes or jars.
Let sit, harden, and enjoy!
