The Smoothest, Easiest, DIY Lip Chap
Lip chap was one of the first DIY recipes I made when I first started my holistic journey. I love lip chap. LOVE it. I feel the need to put it on about twenty times a day. So making my own seemed like a no-brainer for me.
However, after about ten recipe trials, I realized it wasn’t that easy. Sure the lip chaps were okay but definitely not stellar. Some came out too hard (too much beeswax) others too runny (coconut oil is temperature dependent) and some too gritty (the ingredients didn’t blend). I still used all of them (I’m Dutch remember?) but I wasn’t impressed.
Until this recipe.
This lip chap recipe is easily the smoothest one I have tried. In fact, once I started using it I have since refused to even experiment with others as it’s not worth the time. Most recipes fill about 10-20 bottles (dependent) so if you make a “it’s only alright” lip chap, you’re stuck with a lot of unsatisfactory inventory.
But with this recipe, you’ll want a lot! Not only is it smart to have multiple backups but I love giving these away for Christmas to friends and family.
This particular lip chap is Chocolate Peppermint (you’ll want to eat it I swear!). It is perfect to keep your lips hydrated but also to sooth already chapped lips.
If you’re not a peppermint fan you can swap another scent (orange in the summer is nice). But due to the cocoa butter there is a chocolate-y scent regardless. I wouldn’t suggest swapping the cocoa butter though as it’s what helps keep this recipe ultra smooth.
