homemade lip balms
Posted 16 July 2007 - 04:39 PM
So me and my sister have done a few crafty things, but now we think we can do anything and are looking into making soaps and lip balms. We want to start now, to get a few practice cycles out and then I want that to be part of the gift bags for my guests next year. We found a few recipes online that we are going to test out, but I am having trouble locating a good place to purchase them from. Has anyone on here ever done this? Most of the sites I found online, the quantities are huge! Any suggestions?

it just occurred to me that i may not have answered your question....check out the aisle in the crafts stores that have the stuff for it - there are usually little magazines that you can take/buy that have recipes/ideas in them.

Kelly - I think it would be awesome so I am hoping we can get it together. My sister makes slings (to carry babies) and I make little memory boxes for people when they are pregnant and they are ALWAYS the most talked about thing at a shower. I usually make the memory box and put the sling inside, so it's pretty cool. And it feels really good to give someone something that you made and they think it's special too! Everyone wins:-)

My sister and I made a few batches, but we made the soap from scratch with lye and all the oils. We wrapped them in wax paper and tied a wrappia (sp?) ribbon around them. They looked super cute and we got all great responses from everyone we gave them to.
I think we are doing this for my shower gifts since we have over 100 peeps on the list (ridic, I know!), and we will use the extras in the OOT bags. It was alot of fun and so rewarding!
