OMG! I ordered some lip balm, tubes, and caps not knowing there was such a thing as a filling tray. Those suckers start at $15 each and now I'm broke from ordering so many materials over the last 3 weeks. I couldn't even find one any cheaper on ebay or amazon. If any of you fill yours without using a filling tray, how do you do it? I haven't made any before and can't wait for my materials to come in. I got the balm on sale so I am planning on adding some butters etc in it to give it that little something extra I thought of using a turkey baster or syringe but wouldn't it solidify quickly before I could get them filled? Also, do you flavor yours or just leave them plain? I saw that flavor oils are kinda expensive compared to fo's that I'm used to buying. All this stuff is really adding up quickly and when I go to sell I hope I don't run into the same fix I did the other day. There were 3 other soapers there and I sold one bar! My soaps are really nice and I was and am still so let down. I so hope that I haven't wasted a lot of money and time in this venture because I love to soap and other handmades. If you wouldn't mind sharing any tube filling techniques and tricks, I would be so appreciative.
