Lip Gloss - Cocoa
1/2 tsp of Hot cocoa mix
2 tbs Vaseline/petroleum jelly
Double boiler pan or 2 pans.
Melt the ingredients down using a low heat in a double boiler method. If you do not have a double boiler place a large bowl over the top of a pan of water, let the water heat up until the ingredients in the bowl begin to melt.
Once the ingredients have melted mix together and pour into a suitable container such as an old lip gloss pot or baby food jar or small container.
let it cool before applying to the lips.
Insure all containers are sterile by boiling them to prevent contamination of your lip loss.
If you wish to dye this balm you can use a cosmetic coloring available from home made body product supply stores. You can also use a small amount of store bought lipstick to tint the balm.
Alternatively you can also use colored beeswax or candle dye as it is being used in such a small quantity it will not stain or harm your skin.
