Several of you have had questions about soap making,
and as I am just a beginner, I thought I would post links to
some websites that have been helpful to me.
- Rhonda has some good soapmaking instructions and advice here.
- The Miller Soap page has a lot of great information on soap making.
- And a great step-by-step tutorial here on blender soap making.
Now, I mentioned I had tried something new...well, we all love
Burt's Bees lip balm in this family, so when I happened upon
Renee's lip balm recipe, I couldn't wait to give it a try...
Once I had all my materials gathered,
it was very easy and fun to make.
We've all tested it out and agree it is as good, if not better
than Burt's. The savings are substantial since a tube cost me less
than $1 to make; the tins a bit more initially because of the cost of the tin,
but they can be cleaned and reused again & again.
I could reduce the cost even further by purchasing different lanolin--the
brand I found at the grocery store was expensive.
The tins and tubes are from Mountain Rose Herbs--they have
everything for making body care products and shipped my
order out super quick.
Thanks to Renee for sharing this recipe!
