I was wondering if anyone knows of any on-line stores in Canada that have flavor oils or lip balm base or containers or labels? I've never tried to make my own lip gloss and was hoping this would be a good Winter project (b/c god knows it's too cold to go oustide) and alot of suppliers that I found wont ship to Canada or charge a huge shipping rate. 

I'm willing to travel if anyone knows any good stores in the GTA or surrounding that carry any lip balm supplies

Thanks so much !!!!

For an easy lip balm base, melt equal parts grated beeswax and almond oil together.  You can also add a few drops of vitamin e oil (you can purchase the oil, or just get some of the gel capsules (should be with the vitamins/supplements) and pop 'em open with a pin).   I've "improvised" a double boiler for the melting, just stir while you melt-- it doesn't take very long.

As far as flavorings go, I've read that candy-flavoring oils can work, but have never tried them.  Just add during the melting process, or stir in just before you pour your concoction.  The base can also work for making perfume solids, just use essential oils instead of flavor oils. 

I've not purchased anything from this website, but I've heard good things about it: http://www.wellingtonfragrance.com/

I hope this helps.  Good luck.   Smiley

just for the record-- I don't see why candy flavoring oils wouldn't work- the only real requirement for a lip balm flavoring would be that it'd be edible and taste nice, right? so it makes sense that candy flavors would work..

Beadbakery,

I have purchased from http://www.lyndenhouseinternational.com/ a few times before, and found they have all of the supplies I needed (they are in Edmonton) I haven't ordered from them in a few years though.  I just checked out their website and it was unavailable. Maybe check back in a while to see if its up and running.

Good luck!
