When I first started making lip balms I had a hard time pouring it into the tube. I tried straws but they just got clogged and the same thing happened with droppers. I had resigned myself to struggling with it, when one day i walked into a thrift store and there was the perfect device for pouring. It had a spout of sorts with an open top and a handle that could stay out of the hot water I use for melting. So I paid the 53 cents and have been loving the device ever since.
I went on Etsy to check my store's activity and there on the front page are two of the same things I use to pour lip balms. They're Turkish coffee pots. I never in a million years would have guessed that. Pretty cool if you ask me. So since this post was about lip balms, I'll post a link to my new lip balm video on YouTube.
