Big and Bigger Lip Balm Tube Picture 5

I’ve had some of you asking for pictures of the Big and Bigger Lip Balm Tubes. Well, I now have a picture for you to do some comparisons of your own. On the left side of the picture, I placed a White Bottom Twist Tubes (0.15 oz) with a White cap. The middle tube and cap is the Big Lip Balm Tube set. Then on the right side is the Bigger Lip Balm Tube set. These tubes are perfect for making big lip balms, salves, traveling lotion bars, and anything else you could imagine in them. Wouldn’t these make a great traveling size of salves or lotion bars? I can see this going into pockets of the skiers and snowboarders, ice skaters, campers, hunters and everyone who needs a little extra care while outside in the winter elements. Try these tubes and I think you will love them as much as I do!

P.S. Since Christmas is so close and gifts are becoming harder to make on such short notice, buy a Gift Certificate for your fellow crafters! We now have cute letterpress cards to send with the Gift Certificates! This has me wanting to sing the following song. Gift Certificates, Gift Certificates, How you bring joy! I don’t know, I don’t know, What I’ll get! There is probably a reason that I’m a blog writer and not a song writer!

    my friend had a headache balm. it was in a lip balm tube. it had peppermint and menthol crystals. in kind of a lip balm base.

    this is the stuff that I have.
    shea butter lip balm base.
    bees wax
    jojoba oil – colorless
    shea oil
    peppermint oil
    lip balm tubes, roller ball bottles, and small dropper bottles.

    I do not have a lot of ingredients since I mostly make lip balm and cuticle oil for friends

    can you come up with a headache balm with some of these ingredients. I was thinking just the peppermint oil, base and some extra bees wax. ???????

    Any other aroma therapy items, relaxing, stress, I have seen other items at stores but I do not like all the added stuff.

      Generally I see these done at 1% peppermint. I don’t know if this is helpful to most people or helpful at all. But when people ask me about their formulation or duplicating someone else’s formulation, it is generally the case that the peppermint is at 1%.

      My suggestion is tea. I know that sounds cheesy but I think we all get in too much of a hurry and we forget to add a few Zen moments to our day.

    The MMS guidelines for creating a lip balm are these (from the recipes section of the online store):

    20% Beeswax
    25% solid at room temperature oil (Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Lanolin, etc.)
    15% brittle at room temperature oil (Regular Cocoa Butter, Palm Kernel Oil, etc.)
    40% liquid oil at room temperature (Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, etc.)

    I guess you can also start from the shea butter lip balm base and add only the peppermint essential oil – a few drops for a really small batch (1-2 small tubes or one jar) and , if still needed, increase the dosage.

    I’ve made today a minty lip balm with unfiltered cocoa butter (the one chocolate-like in flavour and colour and some peppermint essential oil), and I would also be interested to know many EO drops can I use per tube(4.5 grams of lip balm). I don’t want to overuse it 🙂

    Do you carry labels for the big and bigger tubes? If not, what are the diameter and length of each? Thanks!
