My Son Doesn’t Like Messy Creams

My son is 12 years old and doesn’t like applying messy creams so I did two things:

Roll-on deodorant – I popped out the ball, washed the container, filled it with olive oil and put the ball back in.  He can apply it anywhere easily and not touch it.

Deodorant stick – I grated beeswax and heated it and olive oil and poured it into a deodorant stick container, it cooled to form a stiff stick that he can apply anywhere and not touch it.
