could we just reuse the container from our old lipbalm? this would be fun to try out.

Absolutely! Recycling a tube for your personal use is a great idea! You may need a few of these though...because I was surprised at how much one batch made.  Smiley

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

Very fun! A great project for a mom who's DD is lip balm obsessed...I can relate!  Cheesy

Regular sized lip balm tubes hold .15 ounces ( a smidge over 4 grams) by weight so that helps in calculating! Cheesy

Thanks MareMare! I'm going to cut back how much I do next time...which at this rate will be July before this home needs any more lip balm!  Cheesy

These are great! I really want to try them myself. I have a bit of a chapstick obsession... although I don't usually eat it Smiley.

I love this idea!!!
I mix up a couple cups of sugar with a table spoon full of honey, and then enough olive oil to saturate the sugar... mix it all together & you've got a sugar scrub that will banish flaky dry winter skin like nobody's business! mmmmm... honey!  Cheesy

Sure you don't! LOL!  Cheesy

for some oils & wax, I used this supplier on etsy...who was extremely nice & helpful!
http://www.etsy.com/shop/countrysoapshack?ref=pr_shop_more

for the white plastic tubes I found this website & you'll find many different options from pots to slider tins:

For my flavoring, I used candy oil from a little amish place down the road from me.  Wink

For more waxes & oils & colorants, I used this supplier & they have tubes as well:
