    Does it wear off after a few miles, or, how long does an application last?

    Read a great tip somewhere: put a glob of whatever you use in a snack size zip-lock. When you stop to refresh, open bag, turn inside out and apply without getting hands greasy. I stuffed a few baggies in my shirt back pocket. Worked wonderfully -- and made ALL the difference in my comfort!!

    I agree, why haven't I thought of this before? Excellent idea!! Especially for touring.

    I like the ziplock bag idea. Thanks for sharing it.

    I have posted this method many times over the years. Easier and cheaper to use fold-lock-top sandwich bags. I make up 4-5 at a time, put the packets in another sandwich baggie for protection, and keep a couple in my handlebar bag, or in a zip lock along with some Advil, a little money, etc. in my jersey pocket.

    I make butters and creams for my business unrelated to cycling.... that I have started to use when riding and they work well, but I've never used a commercial one so couldn't compare! Admittedly, I started off using my healing salve for skin irritations and bruising AFTER rides on my tender parts and sun burns, and progressed to actually slathering myself up before a ride.

    Ingredients for butter: virgin coconut oil, unrefined shea butter, unrefined cocoa butter, beeswax.

    Ingredients for healing salve: (this is off the top of my head) Calendula, Arnica, coconut oil, beeswax, jojoba, essential oils I could not remember them all off hand but it smells delicious and they were the healing ones like lavender, a little clove, geranium, tea tree and a few others.

    Very simple to DIY and fun too, if you like to make things.
