This is just something I dreamed up and made and it's very nice.  And chocolate has lots of anti-oxidants.  This is not a low-calorie lip balm...(as if any of them are...)

1 tsp cocoa butter
1 tsp dark chocolate shavings
1 tsp beeswax
1 tsp coconut oil ( or any soft butter)
1 tsp rosehip oil (or any oil)
1/2 tsp liquid crystal

Melt the hard ingredients in a bowl in the microwave.  Add the coconut oil.  Nuke for another 10 seconds if needed.  Add the rosehip oil and the liquid crystal.  Stir until everything seems consistent.  Use a large dropper to decant into lip balm containers.  Makes 8 regular sticks or about 10 little pots.

Happy Valentine's!

yum, this looks great (perfect for Valentines Day, too).  My favorite lip balm, and one I made, contained unrefined cocoa butter, shea butter, chocolate chips and olive oil....fabulous.  I can't wait to try your recipe
