For tips on how to deal with dry itchy skin in the winter, please go to my blog http://dreamingwillow.ca/blog/2012/1/19/dry-itchy-skin-in-the-winter.html. But what about your lips? They need some extra attention too at this time of year. Here’s my recipe for Chocolate Bomb Lip Therapy. A delicious way to keep your lips happy!

Coco Butter                 10 gramsLips : Female seamless background with lips

Shea Butter                  10 grams

A blend of Oils*           50 mls

Beeswax                      10 grams

Vitamin E                     5 capsules 400IU

Cooking Chocolate      20 grams

*Use a blend of oils such as olive oil, sweet almond oil, castor oil, coconut oil, or a herbal infused oil for added healing qualities.

Preparation: In a double boiler melt the beeswax, coco butter, shea butter and chocolate. When melted add the fluid oils. When everything is melted into a liquid, take off the heat and add the vitamin E by snipping a cut in the capsules and squeezing out the contents. Lastly add the peppermint essential oil. Stir well and put into lip balm jars or tubes immediately.
