That should have all the answers about strap on hair that you'll ever need

Short version of your search. Take some fake hair (even the stuff you can get in Claires or whatever), clip it, super or hot glue it to a run-of-the-mill clip and there you go.

With that being said, I would suggest some lanolin and Vitamin E. Lanolin is a natural emulsifer that will help the water and the oil to mix. Vitamin E is a natural preservative so some drops of that won't hurt either.

O.O

Honeybees?...Eep. Nah nah I meant I have a bottle of honey. I live in the city, no bees here (plus I'm terrified of bees). I already have a bottle of honey at home is what I meant and if I need more I can go to the store.

There is a refined version that makes cocoa butter unscented. I doubt you can find it at your average store but it can be purchased online. I also heard that coconut oil can get rid of the smell but I suggest you go for the refined version. It can be bought at http://www.thesage.com/catalog/FixedOil.html . Just scroll down for a while until you get to the cocoa butters.

Well, not necessarily as that (yet an added plus!) but for it's humeculant (sp?) properties and the fact it's readily available in my house.

Thank you so much for your help and insight. Borax sounds scary kinda in lipbalm *imagines me eating Ajax*. Well at my natural food store, I found and bought liquid lanolin. There was a cream version also but that was a bit more expensive. Honey still separates. >.< How much lanolin (or any emulsifier) to honey (or anything water based) do I (or anyone) use or are there tricks and ideas to use that doesn't involve my whole mouth smelling like sheep and/or honey still sitting at the bottom (mainly the honey)? Thanks!

I'm just starting as well but soy wax, cocoa butter and Vitamin E is a good start. Works for me

Yeah I thought of honey powder but that sounds like a tough one to get if you're not living by the right store. Emulsifying wax, where would I find that and dang about the coconut oil. Ah well, at least you've saved me nearly $15 and a trip to the store. Thanks!

I looked everywhere hoping someone would give a super good slip of "Hey this is the emulsifiers I use [rattle off aimlessly the list]" now that I found how forking useful they really would be. Especially because I am not the only one here who have tried and failed miserably to put honey in their lip balm without it sitting at the bottom and goopin up the whole thing!

That means I ask you all to dump your heads into this thread and tell the world of all the emulsifiers a person can use for lip balm (and lotion too).

The ones that I seem to notice are lanolin and coconut oil. Tis true? Tis false? Correction where there is wrong and all that stuff. Thankies much!
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: far too many questions about lip balms (and some about body butter) on: June 15, 2008 12:56:21 AM
Soy Wax is teh love!


Seriously it is! I bought some today because my lip balm wouldn't stop melting on me (cocoa butter+honey+Vitamin E) and it works great!!!!!!! It's cheaper than beeswax (and when I read that I could find a few dead bees petrified in the wax I felt really bad and horrified at the same time) and wonderful to use! Now figuring out emulsifiers so I can finally put some honey in there!
