Chocolate and Vanilla Lip Balm Recipe



  • A delightful soothing lip balm for lovers of sweet things
  • Vanilla infused oil: Our vanilla infused oil is 100% natural without any additives, colourings or preservatives. The vanilla pods and beans have a rich, sweet, vanilla aroma and are combined with olive oil and vitamin E oil to make a delightful oil. Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fat and polyphenols. It is also rich in anti-oxidants which help fight free radicals that cause damage to cells. Incorporating olive oil in body care products provides nourishment to the skin and hair.
  • Cocoa absolute: Cocoa is known to contain valuable anti-oxidants and is traditionally known to assist with sluggish circulation as well as promoting softer and more youthful skin.
  • Organic Beeswax: Beeswax is used as an emollient. It's soothing & softening properties help retain moisture in the skin and keep it supple. It contains vitamin A, which is essential for cell growth and repair, and possesses antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Organic Cocoa butter: Cocoa butter has excellent emollient properties, it absorbs quickly and is used to soften and protect chapped hands, lips and skin. It is good for all skin types and is particularly excellent for dry skin. The natural emolliency, moisturising and antioxidant characteristics of cocoa butter make it an excellent choice for uses designed to rejuvenate the skin.
