Mint Chocolate Chip Lip Balm

During the fall my daughter gets really chapped and irritated lips. She licks them which makes it even worse. I find myself constantly buying Chapstick’s and different balms and I thought to myself why don’t I just try making it. It’s very simple and most ingredients are sitting right in your house already.

All you need to do is gather up the items and and you’ll have a yummy smelling peppermint patty inspired balm that is thick, creamy and taste great because we used real chocolate chips.

Heaven’s Mint Chocolate Chip Lip Balm

40 g grapeseed oil or coconut oil

.5 oz cocoa butter

.5 oz beeswax

15 mini chocolate chips

10 drops of spearmint essential oil

Throw all the ingredients into a heatproof container. Fill a saucepan with about 1-2 inches of water and place the container into the pan. Put the pan over medium-low heat and heat until wax is melted. Remove from heat and pour into container of your liking.
