Homemade Chocolate Orange Lip Balm Is Lovely
OK, you mention chocolate and we all take a collective sigh. It's just a lovely ingredient to use and not only in food, but in skincare products too. Here we are using dark organic cocoa butter which has absolutely wonderful chocolate aromas. You could use honey instead of the glycerin if you are really going for the completely decadent version of this chocolate orange lip balm.
The chocolate drops flavouring in the ingredients list is something that is easily available to buy online now. Some have used food flavourings, but you will need to conduct from trial and error experiments to get the quantities and textures right.
