Homemade Mint Chocolate Lip Gloss
Makes: 1 small jar of lip gloss Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon pure almond oil
- 1 teaspoon cocoa butter
- 3-4 drops pure vitamin E oil
- 1-2 drops pure peppermint extract
- 3-4 chocolate chips (pick your poison: dark, milk, or semi-sweet)
Place all ingredients in a small heat-safe bowl and set aside.
Place a small saucepan with about 1 inch of water in it over medium-low heat, and heat until the water is steaming and simmering.
Set the bowl on top of the steaming pot of water, taking care that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
Using a small spoon or spatula, slowly melt the ingredients until they are thoroughly combined.
When the ingredients are combined and the mixture is smooth, pour the lip gloss into a sterilized small container and allow to cool to room temperature until solid, about 1 hour.
Note: Do not expose lip gloss to high temperatures. The lip gloss should keep for up to two months.
