Minty Chocolate Homemade Lip Balm

This super fun (and very firm) lip balm is adapted from this recipe at From Nature With Love.

This lip balm recipe is firm and almost a little difficult to apply from a tin. It takes some patience to rub your fingers around it until it’s soft enough to transfer to your lips.

Surprisingly, the cocoa powder doesn’t give it much color at all. It turns out a very light tan hue. However, the smell with the mint is out of this world.

Yet again, no matter how heartbreakingly tempted you are to lick your lips when you wear this – don’t do it! It’ll be a fleeting moment of deliciousness followed by an hour of feeling dry. Totally not worth it. (Okay … maybe a little worth it…..)

Minty Chocolate Lip Balm Recipe

  • 1 Tbsp grated beeswax or beeswax pearls
  • 1/8 c. coconut oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp shea butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp cocoa butter
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp vitamin E oil (or 2 punctured, squeezed out vitamin E capsules)
  • 3 drops peppermint essential oil

Place the shea and cocoa butters in a small pot or double boiler, and add the coconut oil. Heat over VERY low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Try not to let the mixture go over 175 degrees, or the shea butter could end up a little gritty.) Add the beeswax and stir well. After the beeswax has completely melted, remove the mixture from the heat and add the essential oil, honey, vitamin E, and cocoa powder, whisking well the whole time. After everything is incorporated and smooth, transfer to a lip balm tube or tin and allow to set for 3 hours.
