      Well, I love how this turned out, but I don't feel comfortable adding stars, because I had to adjust the recipe to get it to work. I had to add a lot more oil than called for (like 2-3 times?)... however I mentioned that I thought it was hard to measure the beeswax in teaspoons since its solid and you have to melt to measure in teaspoons and she told me that she's seen recipes that call for it to be grated, then measured. So maybe that was what you were looking for? If so, I think that really needs to be specified. If not, I would much rather the measure for the beeswax to be in ounces. I added a small amount of orange essential oil- yum! This stuff works wonderfully for very chapped lips. I had a cold and my nose was horribly chapped, so I rubbed some on my nose too and that worked great. The final result I got was great- I'm just not sure if its necessarily true to the recipe. ?
