That's one of the reasons I like using the Lansinoh brand lanolin in the baby section of my local grocery store. I find that not a whole lot of it is needed to get a good effect, and being a hobbyist who makes things in small batches, my 1.4 oz/40g works out perfectly for me for the amount I use. I just use it in lip balms (at a rate of 10%). My biggest batches consist of 18 balms, but more often than not I make just 6 balms at a time. To put things into perspective, from one tube of Lansinoh, I can make 72 lip balms.DeeAnna said:Oh. Ten pounds of the stuff. That's pretty ambitious!
