Chocolate Lip Balms with Cocoa Powder
1 oz. Shea Butter
1 oz. Beeswax
1 oz. Cocoa Powder
.4 oz. Castor Oil
.8 oz. Vitamin E Oil
.9 oz. Avocado Oil
25 Heart Lip Balm Containers
STEP ONE: Combine the Beeswax, Castor Oil, Vitamin E Oil and Avocado Oil in a heat safe container and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir the mixture half way through to ensure even mixing.
STEP TWO: Once the beeswax is melted, stir in the Shea Butter. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds if the Shea Butter does not melt all the way down with gentle stirring.
STEP THREE: Once the mixture is completely melted, mix in the Cocoa Powder making sure there are no clumps.
Optional Step Four: Add flavor oil (if you want to). This recipe is plenty flavorful without the flavor oil added.
STEP FIVE: Pour the chocolaty mixture into your heart shaped lip butter pots and let cool. It gives a little bit of a neutral brown tint to the lips and gives a faint smell of chocolate when applied. Don’t put calories on your hips this Valentine’s Day – put ‘em on your lips!
