hey! i love this soooo much, in fact my bf and i decided to start making crafts and selling em at our craft fair-ish thing here and i just wanted to know how do you know if the oils you buy are safe to put on your lips? do i have to buy like those "cooking" flavored oils or do just any oils work? i just want to be safe. :) thanks much! -kellie

Eeeeeppp, amazing project!
I was just wondering though, can any of the other items be substituted? =]
Coz I'm on a very very very tight budget!

I bought most of the ingredients at Whole Foods and my local craft store! Good luck! I'm probably going to make some tonight as well!
