Chocolate Bacon Sweet and Salty Lip Scrub

I love chocolate. Dark and bitter or sweet and milky. Today you can buy so many flavor combinations with chocolate, it is crazy. Chili peppers, almonds, macadamia nuts, cashews, caramel, toffee, coffee, cherries, blueberries, goji berries, green tea and more! It can be overwhelming to buy a chocolate bar. One of the crazier combinations that I have fallen in love with is a chocolate bar with bacon and a touch of sea salt. Talk about yummy! Today I wanted to make a lip scrub that tastes much like this curious combination. Come join me!

 

Having grown up in Utah, I wanted to really showcase a unique product that comes from Utah. That is salt. If you have ever used salt that was harvested from Utah you are familiar with its unusual coloring. It is a soft peachy/white color with flecks of darker red throughout. It also has what is often described as having a sweeter flavor instead of the more bitter notes that iodized table salt can have. I wanted to use this salt today for the color and the exotic feeling it lends while still being a local product!

The flavor of this finished lip scrub is perfect! When I was making it, I worried that I had too much salt or that I didn’t have enough. It is so good, many of the pickier staff members have snagged a jar to keep in their pockets. My own sample that was taken home was enjoyed by the dog. Sigh… I have managed to keep about 30 to send to shipping for you to try! Request one in your order!

  2. I have been wanting a good lip scrub recipe but would like a good universal flavor or two that most people would like. Chocolate Bacon flavor sounds good but not for everyone. What flavor do you recommend for a replacement. Also what oil can you use to replace the peach Kernel oil. Can you use apricot kernel instead of peach Kernel? Do you sell small one oz containers for lip scrub?

    1. Good universal lip product flavors are vanilla, any citrus and/or mints.

      My favorite replacement oil for Peach Kernel Oil is Apricot Kernel Oil.

      I like using the 1/4 oz lip balm jars for a lip scrub as a little goes a long way. If you want a 1 oz jar, try our 1 oz Jar & Cap Set.
