Did you know that Nutella can be used to make diy EOS lip balms? It contains a large amount of palm oil which is similar to coconut oil that is used in most diy EOS lip balm recipes. After a bunch of experimenting, I came up with this super easy recipe!
NUTELLA DIY EOS LIP BALM
1 Tbs Beeswax
1 Tbs Nutella
2-3 Tbs Coconut Oil
1) Melt everything in a water bath
2) Follow DIY EOS lip balm tutorial to make the domed balm shape. Any excess balm can be stored in normal lip gloss containers.
3) Please note this is NOT EDIBLE because it contains wax
*If you don’t have coconut oil then you can try substituting with olive oil. If you have shea butter at home then add that too for extra moisture. If you are lazy, then you can buy simply unscented lip balm in the drugstore and melt it up with the Nutella and some beeswax

It was so much fun making this diy EOS lip balm, and this recipe works with almost any condiment, sauce or spread that has a long shelf life at room temperature. However please use common sense when making diy EOS lip balm and stop using if the colour, smell or texture changes! And because this diy EOS lip balm contains wax, it should not be eaten or treated as food.
