Chocolate Cinnamon

Doesn't that sound yummy?  Chocolate cinnamon.  Well, it at least sounds yummy to me!  I FINALLY got around to using some of my empty chap stick tubes.  I also finally used the deodorant tubes I bought!  WOO HOO.  I am leaving tomorrow to drive to Utah AGAIN.  I have been promising my mom and dad some chocolate chap stick.  This time I wanted one with some Bees Wax in it.  I looked up some recipes and then adapted one for my liking.  Here is what I did.

Chocolate Cinnamon Chap Stick

1 Tablespoon Cocoa Butter
1 Tablespoons Sweet Almond Oil
1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon & 1 teaspoon Beeswax
5-7 drops Cinnamon essential oil 
6 to 10 chocolate chips

I should have entered a drop or so of Vitamin E and I forgot!  I think this is plenty good for your lips without it though.  

Here's what you do.  Bees wax takes a while to melt.  You want to take the bees wax, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, olive oil and avocado oil and melt them together.  Do this either in 10 second increments in the microwave or use a double broiler.  Once the bees wax is all melted into the other oils you want to add you essential oil.  If using Cinnamon it is VERY strong.  I only used about 4 or 5 drops but I could have used a couple of more.  I would rather have too little then too much though.  Then add some vitamin E if you would like.  Stir in the chocolate chips until they melt.  I used 6 of them and again you could use more.  Whatever you would like.  This is just to add some flavor and to add some color.  Don't let it cool TOO long before pouring into whatever it is you have to hold it in.  I used my empty chap stick tubes and it took up about 9 to 10 of them.  

And here is the deodorant in their cute little roll up tubes

I can't WAIT to roll this on instead of using my finger!  WOO WOO for all natural home made products that won't cause harm or cancer!  YEAH BABY!

With them containing chocolate chips, would there be a certain amount of time they'd stay good for? It sounds like a yummy recipe! Thanks for sharing! :)

Not sure how long actually. I made some with chocolate 4 or 5 months ago and it is still good so I'll say I am sure they are good for at least 5 or 6 months!

I think I'll use this for a YW activity. Thanks.

Al there are a million different recipes out there so shop around because most are WAY easy and some might be better for girls. I did the chocolate one because that's what my mom and dad wanted but you can find all kinds on the internet! Good luck! I want to be in the YW :)

ok chocolate cinnamon sounds awesome to me! I admittedly still love the root beer scented chapstick from the grocery store, seen any recipes for that?!?
