Lush Inspired - Homemade Whipstick Lip Balm

Lush Inspired Series

Ready To Make Your Own Natural Lip Balm? - try these recipes!
These are the two lip balms I've enjoyed the past couple of months.
The fist one is Lush Inspired Chocolate Orange Balm made with Dark Chocolate, Cocoa Butter and Citrus Essential Oils.
The recipe of the tinted one I'll post tomorrow, it has a main ingredient of super healing and moisturizing Illipe Butter.

We'll use today a recipe for the "WHIPSTICK LIP BALM" from the Lush web-site. Keep reading if you'd like to know how I did my Chocolatey Lip Balm.

Lush Inspired Whipstick Lip Balm

Lush Description: "Sweet and chocolatey. Great for lips.
If that sounds a bit worthy, worry not; we livened it up with real chocolate, vanilla absolute and orange oil. Delicious and good for you, which is a rare and lovely thing."

We'll exclude water-soluble Oat Infusion (Avena Sativa), Glycerine and Honey (Mel), thickener Cetearyl Alcohol, synthetic Flavour, emulsifier Sodium Borate, Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Cocoa Absolute, we're going to add a natural antioxidant instead of Methylparaben.
