    I've purchased from both New Directions Aromatics and Voyageur Soap & Candle, but am wondering what other options there are for base materials and essential oils?

    New Directions seems to have some of the best prices for essential oils, but the $100 minimum to avoid an admin fee is a bit much for a part-timer.

    Voyageur doesn't have a minimum, and seems to have a pretty great selection of micas and decent prices for base materials / supplies, but shipping can be a bit rough for smaller orders.

    I've ordered the most from NDA....I REALLY like their stuff (but I have almost all of it now...ooopie....guess it's not hard for me to make that $100 minimum....). I've ordered FO from WSP and NF in the States and had them shipped to my MIL in Chicagoland. Same thing with supplies from TKB.
    Base oils I try to get at Costco: coconut, olive oil, grapeseed, avocado.

    yep the ones I put there are good suppliers, I had tried them all. However for oils NDA , for all fancy ingredients Windy Point and Voyager, Voyager has awesome packaging.
