|I’m not sure about you, but I’m definitely suffering from chapped lips this winter. (Is this where I ask myself, “Andee, where do you work?”) I decided that I wanted to make a Fluffy Lip Scrub that would be fun to make and to use! Since chocolate has been noted to help lower blood pressure and increase the serotonin levels, I decided that I wanted to make a chocolate lip scrub that would at least taste perfectly chocolaty as well as bring a smile to my face.
The inspiration for this scrub was actually some teasing that happened over the weekend. My dad was teasing me that I have a chocolate meter and when I’m running low on chocolate, my mood will be on the cranky side. He reminded me that when I was on the swim team, he would pick me up after Saturday practice and I would be so cranky that it was difficult to deal with me for the rest of the day. After practice one day he had to stop at the grocery store for some lunch items. As we were walking through the dairy section of the store, I saw some shelf stable chocolate milk in a quart size from a local dairy processing plant, Gossner Foods. After we left the grocery store, I drained the carton of chocolate milk in less than 5 minutes. Naturally I was chipper for the rest of the day. Ever since that event, if I’m crabby at all, my dad will tell me that I’m “a quart low!”
If you would like to try the shelf stable milk, I will send one in your order. Don’t miss out on this fun offer as it is only available through March 31st. Write in the comments field, “I want chocolate milk.”
Now back to our regularly scheduled program, I hope you enjoy this yummy lip scrub just as much as I do!
Weigh the Cocoa Butter and Baking Chocolate into a microwave safe container. Microwave using short bursts of time until both are completely melted. Weigh the rest of the ingredients into the food processor bowl. Gently pulse the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Once the scrub is mixed together, fill the jars and cap.
Yield: This recipe will fill 15 of the 10mL Lip Balm Jars.
How do I use this?:
This lip scrub is very chocolaty and a perfectly sweet way to exfoliate your lips. I hope you enjoy this scrub as much as I do!
