Where do you get your oils, mica's, and botanicals? I am in process of leaving my current work and taking a long deserved break, but want to get my soap biz up and running this year. Can you all help me out?

Thanks a million!

Local saves shipping. I used to buy all my CO at Wal-Mart, but it went up 50% last week. It was $2.89 for 31.5 ounces and is now $4.38. I use Soapers Choice, AKA Columbus Foods for most of my hard to get oils and butters. Depends.... :)

I Would Suggest

I would suggest you do a search and check out some of the supplier threads. There's quite a few of them, and they often include customer feedback. See who's closest to your area, and go from there.

When I started researching learning to make soap, I also did some online research (Google) on where to buy soaping oils/colorants/herbs, etc. I discovered that some of the same suppliers kept coming up. I decided to try a few of them, and that's how I got my basic supplier list going.

There's a lot of info here. If you have questions about individual suppliers, for certain things, then ask for feedback.

I'm in love with Bramble berry, even more so now that I am on the west coast and shipping only takes about three days verses a week and a half...

Also, Peak's Candle has GREAT natural MP bases

Whole Sale Supplies Plus has a lot of hard to find things, but I have had a few problems with their FOs in CP, Good fixed oils though.

And Certified Lye is the BEST place to get lye, I think. Great fast service

Also, snowdrift farm has a good range of supplies and decent shipping.

Hope that helps!

Thank you all so much! I will be checking everything out this weekend and next week. I'm having surgery and will be layed up for a few days. Perfect time to do that!

I wish Walmart carried the Cocunet Oil. I'll see what the case price would be if they would order it such a way. Doesn't hurt to ask.

I knew you all would come through for me!
