The DIY movement (Do It Yourself) has spawned a huge cottage industry of folks making their own jams, jellies, baked goods, scarfs, hats and even soap and hand creams. One of the problems though, is getting the goods from those who make, to those who use. In the case of lotions, balm and hand creams, the best containers are the popular 2 oz glass jars with white metal lids. Not only do these containers hold the exact amount needed, but they also travel well in the mail, providing of course that they are packaged properly.
