Last Christmas we made DIY Gingerbread Lip Balm for my daughter’s Kindergarten classmates, and they were a big hit. So this year we decided to use Homemade Mommy’s recipe for DIY Chocolate Mint Lip Balm!
I doubled her recipe and substituted avocado oil for sweet almond oil just in case any of the children in my daughter’s class have allergies to almonds.
- Use a double boiler (I use a glass pyrex measuring cup in a pot of water), to melt down the first 3 ingredients. Keep it on low heat.
- Add the avocado oil at the end once the solid ingredients have become liquid.
- Remove from heat and add the drops of peppermint essential oil. Mix!
- Pour into lip balm tubes quickly!
We filled 33 of the typical plastic lip balm tubes with this recipe.
Do you want to make some of these to give away? I have some FREE printable labels for you to use! I used these with the Ecofriendly Avery labels 48863 (made from 100% post consumer waste, water based adhesive, & processed chlorine free), which I cut in half so that I could get 20 labels on a page.
Not a fan of chocolate and mint? Try the DIY Gingerbread Lip Balm we made last year, or the Moisturizing Lip Balm recipe I use everyday! You can also customize this base lip balm recipe for any flavour you like!
