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.

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!
*gasp* (so scary!)  Shocked

OOOOOOH!  This would be fun to try!  Was it very hard?  Did you just order the tubes online?

Can I add that your pictures are amazing?

I'm so glad you like the photos! My other computer died in December & I haven't quite gotten the hang of this one yet!

To answer your questions, yes, I found the tubes online. Did a search to find them relatively close to me so I wouldn't have to wait that long to receive them, but then the snow & ice came last week. LOL! Ah, well.
It was SO easy! I just altered a recipe I'd found based on which oils did what & melted it all together in a pan within a pan of hot water on the stove until all the oils were melty...stirring with a chopstick, then separated the batch into smaller dishes within the same pan of water...so the oil didn't set up while I added my flavorings & sweeteners. I then used a warmed syringe type of tube thingy to inject the liquid oils into the tubes. You can ask for them at your local pharmacy. Lucky me to think to ask for one while refilling a prescription over the weekend.
The balms set up within about 20 min to a half hour! Super fun!
