What’s in this homemade chocolate lip scrub?

caster super fine sugar – with smaller granules than traditional baking sugar, this super fine sugar is perfect for gently exfoliating lips.

dark chocolate – yes!  this chocolate lip scrub is made with real, delicious, dark chocolate.  Not only does it taste great, dark chocolate has lots of flavonols that hydrate skin, fight free radicals, and increases blood circulation for healthy, rosy lips.

cocoa powder – packed with antioxidants that help repair damaged lips, rejuvenates and hydrates skin, and exfoliates dead skin cells

vanilla extract – enhances the chocolate flavor

avocado oil – helps heals chapped lips, soothes and replenishes dry skin, and it even can even help increase collagen production

orange essential oil – helps improve blood flow and circulation for rosy lips, high levels of vitamin C help protect and heal skin, it’s a mood booster that helps uplift as well as calm and relax, and it enhances the chocolate flavor

tangerine essential oil – has a sweet flavor adds a tangy kick and it promotes feelings of happiness (who doesn’t like that?!)  🙂

How to make homemade chocolate lip scrub with essential oil?

step 1:  add 2 tablespoons caster super fine sugar (like this) to a small glass bowl

step 2:  use a spice grinder or food processor to grind about 12-15 dark chocolate chips into a fine powder

tip #1 — put chocolate chips into the freezer for a few minutes before grinding them.  This will keep them cold, and prevent them from melting during the grinding.

tip #2 — pulse the grinder on and off to grind the chips.  Pulsing will grind the chips faster and help them to get to soft.
