    Is there a substitute for bees wax? After doing batik fabric dyeing for many years, I am allergic to many waxes including bees wax.

    Does this actually taste like pomegranate? I love having a tasty chapstick! I host and teach DIY Spa parties and typically make my lip balm with yummy tasting essential oils like cinnamon, orange and peppermint.

    I made the pomegranate lip balm. It set up on top but underneath it was a gooey mess. What did I do wrong? I thought I followed the directions exactly.
