So, discussions about pricing and shipping made me decide to do a quick comparison of a few things, just for kicks.

FYI, I live in Alabama. The websites are Majestic Mountain Sage, Brambleberry and Lotion Crafters.

I put the same order into 3 websites:
1lb avocado (food grade, I want 100% avocado)
1 lb deodorized cocoa butter
4 oz preservative (MMS has Optiphen and the other 2 have Phenonip)
1 lb alcohol for lotion (BB has Ceteryl, the other two have Cetyl)

BB $29.47 + $13.01 shipping (note: avocado is on sale at BB so this would normally be $1 more)
MMS: $33.50 + $9.12
Lotioncrafters: $33.75 + $14.31

Lotion crafter overestimated shipping it seems as every time I've ordered I've gotten a refund for shipping overages

So envious of your cheap-o shipping charges! It's not bad if I order from a Canadian distributor, but ordering from US sites can be nuts. I've had shipping estimates that are greater than the cost of goods.
