    Okay, so I placed an order with BB but totally didn't realize I needed Shea Butter and arrowroot powder. Their shipping takes so long, I need it a little faster (there's also already been issues with this order on UPS side, and I just want the first order to get here someday!). I'm in VA (If that makes a difference). Does anyone have anywhere they'd recommend that has a little better time on shipping?

    Thanks!

    I can't speak to the Shea, but I buy my arrowroot powder from Amazon. Bob's Red Mill is the brand I have been using in homemade deodorant.

    Do you have a local co-op? I got my first shea at the co-op and arrowroot (I think) can be common in gluten free stuff. If Marshal recommends Bobs Red Mill, that's one of the brands I commonly get from the co-op.

    Can be a little pricey, but I their shipping has been really fast. I ordered on late Tuesday, and it is arriving tomorrow. They are located in Connecticut.

    Thanks! I'll check the grocery store before I place the order - if I can get it there, then at least I'll only have to buy shea butter, which would be very useful! :)
