Lip Balm Making

This is going to be my project for the summer. Making some lip balm for my family for the winter months. I hate buying some in the store because I am more health conscious now than before.

Flavoring will be the very last thing I will add on it. I will start with coconut oil, bees wax, and/or shea butter. I am looking for lip balm tubes and lip balm jars, along with/maybe lip brush pens depending how soft my batch will turn out.

Our supply of virgin coconut oil is going fast. My sister is supposed to mail me some from my parents but I don't know when I am going to get it. Since I am not talking to her, (I don't want to hear her excuses about her life) calling her is the last option.

Maybe one of you (my readers) can provide me a site where I can buy some cheap natural ingredients. Organic is not necessary but if they are cheap I am in. I am not really into organic because the FDA is involve with organic. As long as the company can pay them for the label, yes it will be called organic.

I would love to buy it locally, but I don't know any place. The only place I'm sure to find it is at the health store. They are also FDA controlled, and I don't like it.

SO, if you know a site let me know....thank you in advance. And have a great week.
