    Default Re: adventures in lip balm...plz share advice and recipes

    yeah, the shea butter in this kit i described as funky, actually smelled rancid, i ditched it. i looked through past posts for lip balm recipes and tips and found some great advice. i have two recipes i am going to try, and one is similar to a popular and well known company, known for their lip balm and other products. i'd like to email them for their recipe, but i don't think they'd give it to me!

    when i try these two recipes, i will post here.

    might be off topic, but now i would like to know where you all get your supplies? have some suggestions, but would like some additional input on reputable companies to purchase supplies from.

    I use the tubes and get those as well as jars for hand salve and shrink wraps from SKS supplies. prices and service are good. I use beeswax, almond oil, vitamin e, a touch of honey and essential oil for the flavor. Be sure to check on oils you plan on using. You can also buy flavorings. I used to pour into individual tuber lined up in a stand I made, but when you spilled it was quite messy. Then I got one of those plastic trays that the tubes pop into and I wouldn't be without it now.

    thanks berkshire bee, what did you mean by "checking on the oils"? where do you purchase your oils and butters? i have the tools to make my own stand but spilling would be messy on anything but some sort of plastic.

    just rediscovered this thread and never answered the last question. I was talking about using essential oils for flavoring. You have to read up on which ones you can and can't use. For example citrus can cause photosensitivity.
