Hello! I am new to this board as a poster but I do occasionally visit. I made my first batch of lip balm the other day that I felt I needed to share. I received  the supplies(with the exception of labels) and instructions in the OWS63 swap from lindyv321. She sent Bubble Gum and Cherry Berry flavorings. This batch is Cherry Berry as I was making some as a gift and it fit the recipient more, but I can't wait to try the Bubble Gum!  Grin


*Bees Wax
*Cocoa Butter
*Sweet Almond Oil
*Flavoring
(Lip Balm Tutorial by v@lentine)

Based on questions asked, I have made a mini tutorial on how to make the labels for these tubes.

Label Tutorial
Supplies:
*Scrapbooking Paper (the ones that are on the thin side. The thicker ones will not work for this.)
*Packing Tape (Packing tape's width is the perfect size for this! How convenient!)
*Scissors

1. With a scrap piece of paper make a template of what size label you need. It is best to make it so the paper doesn't overlap itself, but have the edged just meet itself. Draw and arrow pointing "up" on it so you know which way it goes. This way your label won't turn out accidentally sideways.

2. With the template cut out a bunch of labels out of the scrapbooking paper you chose.

3. Lay the label down and take a piece of packing tape(length should be about twice the width of the label) and place it on the label  with the label approximately centered. Then cut the excess off so it looks like pictured below.

Doesn't have to be exact of course, but one side should have just enough tape to hold to the tube. The other side should have a little bit more than that to keep the label on good and secure.

4. Place the small end of tape on the tube and wrap the label around tightly making sure it is not crooked or overlapping the cap or adjuster thingy(whatever it's called haha).

And you're done! Now enjoy your beautiful labels!

Thank you for the compliments everyone   Kiss

I made the labels and have included a mini tutorial in the original post. Hope it helps. If I missed something or didn't explain in an understandable way, or anything really just ask!

Was this a kit or did she just send instructions and supplies (though I suppose that would be a kit)? Also, how much of each ingredient did you use, and did you just mix it and cool it, or....what? Please explain. Thank you!

She sent a kit with the exception of the label situation.

I will ask Lindy for permission to post proportions and instructions. If she allows it I will definitely post! (Link in original post) It's really addicting. I need to order more tubes!  Grin

What a clever idea! I just made some lip balm too and wasn't sure how to do the labels. I had a sticker maker I used because I couldn't find affordable sticker paper... but the sticker maker died on me. This is a great idea and I'll have to do this next time. Smiley

Just remember if these are being sold you are required by law to have them labeled as the FDA requires.  Check out the FDA requirements on their pages for "cosmetics".   

There are certain things that need to be printed on the label.  Such as ingredient list in order from greatest to smallest ingredient.  If you are using a premade base then you need to know how to properly label bases that you are scenting/flavoring.   the actual weight of the product inside the container you can have more just not less of the product that what the label, your name and address, instructions for use, and a do not use if it causes irritation warning.  Oh as well as the product name.  Just to give you an idea of the basics.     

Even if you are giving them as gifts they should be properly labeled as there are people with allergies to certain ingredients.

Have fun lip balms are awesome!

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....
