I grew up loving Lip Smackers. If you were a child of the 80’s or 90’s I know you know what I’m talking about. They were so delicious that I wanted to eat them! Guava was my favorite, with Chocolate Peppermint a close second. I had about 20 different flavors, I celebrated the entire collection. Well, one day I realized that those intensely flavored chap-sticks were filled with some not so great ingredients (see image below)

Being the all-natural gal that I am, I opted for coconut oil as a lip balm for quite a while instead. I dreamt of the delicious flavors of my lip balms of the past. Until I bought some homemade chocolate peppermint lip balm at a farmers market. My lips were so happy with my new find, that when I ran out I simply had to figure out how to get more. So, I made my own.

  1. Can’t wait to try this, but I only have the lip balm tubes, will this harden enough to use those, or do I need to have the small lip balm pots?

      1. Perfect, thanks! I am sending tubes to school with my kiddos, I hate to have their hands near their mouths with all the germs going around 😉 Little pots for me though!

  2. Hi! Thank you for this recipe! I want to try to make my own lip balm! I don’t like chocolate is it possible to leave the cocoa butter out? Or do you need that in order to get the right consistency? Also is this a rather firm lip chap or does it slide on easy like a gloss? I’m using the tubes so I don’t want to make a actual gloss but I want it to be a little greasier…. If that even makes sense 😉
