COCOA EMPOWERMENT ~ Recent data from the United States Department of Agriculture indicates that cocoa powder and dark chocolate are highly concentrated sources of natural flavanols. In general the higher the cocoa content, the greater the antioxidant potential.
Scientific studies show that naturally occurring flavanoid compounds from cocoa beans may deliver health benefits. Flavanoids act as antioxidants and are found in high concentrations in all plants.
It takes 1-4 cups or more of plant matter to make 1 single drop of pure essential oil, making essential oils an extremely high antioxidant source.
BASIC LIP BALM and REPAIR BUTTER FORMULA (Makes about 2 ounces)
¼ CUP PURE LIGHT COCONUT OIL
1 TBSP (HEAPING) BEES WAX – less makes your lip butter softer, more harder
2 TBSP Semi-Sweet Dark Cocoa
30-40 DROPS PURE ESSENTIAL OILS – Peppermint & Lavender
Optional: May add a few drops of vitamin E oil
Put the bees wax and semi-sweet dark cocoa into the pure light coconut oil and heat in a large glass measuring cup that sits inside of a large pot that’s been partially filled with water. Heat the pot of water on the stove until the bees wax and dark cocoa melts.
Remove the measuring cup with melted beeswax, dark chocolate and coconut oil from the pan. Cool slightly before adding your Essential Oils and optional Vitamin E oil. Gently stir the mixture with a sterile stainless steel spoon.
Pour Valentines Chocolate Kiss Lip Balm into individual containers with lids and refrigerate. You may affix your own personalized label to each container after the balm has completely set. Long shelf life, keeps almost indefinitely!
APPLICATION: Gently apply over your lips or other sensitive skin areas anytime. It won’t build up!
