uh, a pipette? I buy small ones by the hundred from various sites. www.elementsbathandbody.com usually has a good price.

Those are great! I ended up using an oral medicine syringe...because I had it available & it was free.... but would use pipettes if I were going to be making more. I just don't have super good control to pour it directly from the bowl into the little tubes.

Thanks guys for all the great compliments! Definitely give this craft a try! I was completeley intimidated at first.

Maybe I'll even try soaping!

lol score for being super creative plus getting something for free! Yeah pipettes are almost a necessity for these..I used to use a 1 cup plastic measuring cup I had with a pour spout, but the pipette is a little more control. And it looks like you got the trick of overfilling them so they wouldn't have a divot in them when they cooled!

I'm a fast learner!  Cheesy I filled a couple to the top & by the 3rd, the first was getting a dimple.

I've wanted to try this since I started actually reading the labels on everything.  Thanks for the inspiration  Grin

LOL~ I wouldn't hold my breath on that one, but I'll send you a sample! DM me your flavor preference. I can test on friends right?  Cheesy

Go for it! It was so much fun and I have peace of mind now for it! One of the ingredients that made me go 'hmmm' was saccharin on my girl's commercially purchased tube! We prefer either sugar or all natural sweeteners here!

 I admit that I made quite a mess of the workspace at first because I sprayed hot waxy oil all over before I got the hang of the syringe.  Embarrassed It won't be that messy next time!

How wonderful!  I have little containers to make lip gloss with DD, but she would love this as well. She has a slight obsession with lip balm and begs me to buy her some every time we walk into a store. 
That's fantastic that you got a wonderful result after only one try!  I would probably make a big mess of it.  But it would be a fun learning process, right?  Wink
