After two applications of the paw balm. 2 T. olive oil, 2 T. coconut oil, 1.5 T shea butter, & 2 T. beeswax (small pellets work best for melting and measuring) In a microwave safe small container, combine the 4 ingredients. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted. At this point, you can pour the mixture into lip balm tubes if you have them for easy application on the paws, small tins work great as well, or a small Tupperware type container with a lid. Let it/them cool on.
