    I had a chocolate mint lip balm years ago what was my girls’ favourite and this sounds like it would taste the same. I’ll have to give it a try, thanks for sharing!

    This sounds delicious Stephanie. I’ve made many lip balms over the years, but never a chocolate one. What female wouldn’t love that!! Thank you for sharing in the showcase.

    I love a lip balm that contains a flavor. Your chocolate mint balm sounds like a real winner. Would you mind sharing where you get your tins? I’d love to make these for my girlfriends.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you
    can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one
    thing that I feel I’d by no means understand.

    It seems too complex and very extensive for me.
    I am looking ahead to your subsequent submit, I will attempt
    to get the hold of it!

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    problems? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my
    blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

    I do not leave a lot of comments, but i
    did a few searching and wound up here Decadant Chocolate Mint Lip Balm
    – Garden Therapy. And I actually do have 2 questions for
    you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does
    it look like some of the responses come across like
    left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other social
    sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of the complete urls of your public sites
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
