Multipurpose beeswax balm | Ain't no Planet B

Multi-purpose beeswax balm

A little dab of multipurpose balm is great for smooth skin, lips, nails and hair. It can also be used for wood and leather treatment. It smells amazing too! 

I see great potential for this balm. I’ve been looking for a non-coconut oil base to maintain its consistency throughout Australia’s fluctuating weather (0-44C / 32-111F). Preferably, something that can travel well, doesn’t melt on a warm day and isn’t rock hard in winter. I’m excited to try this as a base for diy sports remedial balm, deodorant and maybe even peppermint toothpaste!? For my vegan buddies, I’m yet to try vegan beeswax but looking forward to testing this out soon.
