Default cost effective and reliable

I use so much! I have been reading up on making my own, but seems like a huge project. Scary stuff about unreliable oils all over the net. What the best medium range priced oils anyone's used?

I'm pretty happy with New Direction as far essential oils go, but theres a $100 minimum to purchase.

I want to apologize. I read these in the "new post" thread and totally missed that you were talking about essential oils... so I deleted my completely silly reply. Sorry!

I don't understand what you are asking about? What kind of oils? Your title just says cost effective and reliable. Your statement says the above. I see a couple of posts above that mention essential oils, but I don't see that in this post. Is that what you are asking about?

Or are you talking about soap making oils (like olive oil, almond oil, etc.)?

And making your own what? Oils? Soap? Bath & Body products?

Thanks, DragonGirl, I suppose it was moved because it's now in Shopping Recommendations and I found it confusing.
