To be clear, mixing flakes (w/ cheap booze) would be better than the Bullseye as far as the kids applying it?
Well, you may have to monitor their consumption.and a good single malt would work as well.
The good stuff is straight grain alcohol at 190 proof. The less water the better.
What kind of neighborhood are these kids from? 🙂
The Vegetable products work well as a beeswax mix. They are chosen for resistance to going rancid. I’ve never had it happen.
Other oils work. burt’s bees lip balm is just olive oil and wax.
Just store it cool ( my basement shelf works) and away from light.
Keep the unmixed oil in the fridge. I mix small batches. I fill a baby food jar 1/3 with wax pellets and top off with the oil. That gives maybe 1:4-5 ratio, but might be too stiff for you. Just experiment.
And coconut oil is like Crisco at room temp, but turns liquid in your hands.
I just microwave it 30 seconds at a time. Flash points are 350°F and the wax only needs to be 165°F to melt, so there isn’t much danger. Or just put it in boiling water.
