This base comes ready to melt down, add any colorant, flavor oil and re-pour into either small pots (like pictured in this listing), or in lip tube type containers. Within an hour, you can have professional looking lip balms ready for gifts, or for sale under your own business name!
The texture on this product is fairly firm -- so it works great in the chapstick type containers, or you can add a small amount of liquid oils to make a softer, slightly more pliable base. Or add a bit of candellilla, carnauba or beeswax for a firmer product.
This base will also serve as a salve - again, you can adjust the texture by adding other liquid oils or waxes - but as is, it works great as a knee, elbows & heel salve!
