someone at the last "bee school" had asked me for the source of LIP BALM stuff - here it is. Balm FLAVORS, TUBES, CONTAINERS.... www.lipbalmtubes.com
the nice LIGHT COLORED/WHITE CAPPING WAX is perfect for making balms, cremes, ointments. for a firm lip balm your ratio will be about 1:2 solids to liquids. if you're looking for a softer creme, increase the liquid (oil). you can use sweet almond oil, castor oil, avocado oil, or olive oil...
some fun things to add: cocoa butter, vitamin e, essential oils - lavendar, peppermint, etc.
and if you want to SWEETEN the lip balm...hmmmm???....add HONEY!
