Well I recently created a delicious stocking-stuffer idea with only 4 ingredients! Peppermint Cocoa Lip balm is simple to make and full of organic lip-smacking goodness :)
Yields: 35 1/2 oz lip balms.
Prep time: 20 minutes
You will need:
1 double boiler or steamer
1 two-cup glass measuring cup with a pour spout
35 1/2 oz screw-top tins (Amazon)
1/2 cup Cocoa Butter (Organic and Unrefined)
1 cup Coconut Oil (Organic and Unrefined)
1/2 cup Beeswax Pellets (Organic)
35 drops of 100% Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oil
In your double boiler or steamer, place the glass measuring cup full of the first 3 ingredients (do NOT put the Peppermint Essential Oil in until it's removed from the heat) to melt. You can put a lid on and let all 3 ingredients melt into a liquid. It usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
Once you have carefully removed the measuring cup from the heat, add in your 35 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil. Stir the mixture thoroughly and carefully. If you accidentally burn yourself with the hot oils, put a drop of Lavender Essential Oil on the spot for immediate relief.
Slowly fill each tin by holding it up to the spout on the measuring cup and pouring the liquid in. Let the tins sit for an hour to set and then screw the tops on the tins. Attach a cute label, recipe card, or list of ingredients when giving to others! Enjoy the peppermint cocoa aroma in your home too :)
