Default Hop Chapstick

I was at a New Belgium beer dinner this week and we got some little party favors after. One of them was chapstick that smelled of some super aromatic hops. There were any green leafy bits in the wax, so I'm guessing they just used hop oils. Has anyone else seen this? I can't stop smelling it!

The one I have just has a basic New Belgium label, but I would guess it is the Ranger one.

You mean something like this?

Picked this up some beer festival a couple years ago. This one lists the ingredients... orange peel, olive oil... alas, no hops.

My wife makes me homemade "hopstick". She did not know the recipe "off hand" when I asked her but she is pretty sure it was mostly bees wax and coconut oil. You can get the tubes from Brambleberry.com. When she is not so sleepy and if there is an interest, I can get her to give me the recipe/process if anyone is interested...
