As the seasons change the skin often requires more moisturizing and hydrating products to make up for the temperature drop making these chocolate winter lip balms an ideal handmade fix. The balms are made using all-natural ingredients filled with rejuvenating properties to keep lips hydrated through even the chillest of days.

The base of the lip balms are made using a blend of coconut oil, beeswax flakes and cocoa butter for the chocolate flavor. To accent the chocolate, drops of peppermint essential oil are added to replicate popular food flavors of the season. The lipbalms can be dyed using food coloring or left the creamy yellow color and potted. The balm mixture sets in the fridge till harden and can be ready to slather on to dry skin.
