So many people asked about substitutes in the Nutella DIY EOS video so I decided to create a very easy version that does not require beeswax or coconut oil. To make this Nutella DIY EOS, you simply need the following ingredients which you might already have in your kitchen!
DIY SIMPLE NUTELLA EOS
1 Tealight Candle
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
0.5 Tbsp Nutella
1) Chop the candle
2) Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and half a tablespoon of Nutella (or even less Nutella such as one teaspoon if you don’t want a tinted balm)
3) Melt everything and pour into an EOS or regular lip balm container
This DIY is NOT EDIBLE. As mentioned in the video, wax is non-toxic and sometimes used in food but only in tiny amounts (such as coating candies to make them look shiny). It is definitely NOT a good idea to be eating solid chunks of candle wax, which is what these lip balms are made of!
FUN FACT: Nutella is actually pronounced Nootella/New-tella! I had some people complain about this in my DIY EOS Nutella video so here’s the link to the article. Nutella comes from Italy and this is the Italian pronounciation.
