Made some balm tonight for my hands and feet.

1/2 cup of Coconut Oil
1 bar of Beeswax 1 of the bars in the package (estimated 1 oz)

I combined both the wax and the oil in a double broiler/bain marie. That's a fancy term for a silver bowl over a saucepan filled with water. I melted and stirred and mixed it all together. I let it cool down a bit then put it in a resealable container.

Voila! Coconut Beeswax Balm!

It is much harder than petroleum jelly, though I don't know if the consistency will be quite as hard in the summer as it is in the winter. It's definitely a balm, and I am using it on my lips, hands and feet. Basically, anything that seems to need a bit more protection from the elements or is a bit dry from the forced air furnace!  It smells nice, and it feels good. This DIY was a success.
