You can buy most of the products you need at health food stores but if you are getting serious about making your own creams, lotions, shampoos and lip balms it is worth ordering to wholesalers to save money.
Here are a few wholesalers that sells organic and natural carrier oils, essential oils and beeswax:
- Vancouver, British Columbia Voyageur Soap and Candle
This company offers ingredients, supplies and packaging for natural soap making, bath products, aromatherapy and skin care products to home crafters and small to medium sized manufacturers. A good range of Organic products. Store in Surrey. Shipping available. (fast and cheap – 7 cad for me but it depends on how big and heavy your package is)
Everything you need to create your own skin care products, face creams & serums. They offer lotion crafting supplies, mineral rich clays from around the world, exotic butters and base oils (such as shea butter, coffee butter, seabuckthorne oil , emu oil, calendula oil, squalane and more), herbs, colorants, & pure essential oils. Store in Maple ridge. Shipping available. They have a few organic products.
- Canada and the States:
New directions Aromatics
It is the world-wide leader in Aromatherapy Essential Oils, Cosmetic Bases.. they have a good selection of organic products and if you live in Canada that will avoid you paying custom fees. (yes those are very annoying if your package gets picked as you may have to pay taxes on everything you bought…). I especially like the different glass cream containers. Stores in Toronto and the states.
Mountain Rose herbs
I absolutely LOVE this company because they carry such a a wide range of organic products. Dried herbs (great if you are into making your own infused oil at home), carrier oil, essentials oil, plant extracts, beeswax, containers for lip balms and cream, you name it. I just wish they would have a store in Canada, would make my life easier! Store in Oregon. Shipping to Canada available.
This is only if you live in France where they are based. They carry a wide range of organic products.
NOTE: I ordered from all those companies above in the past and was satisfied by the service and products.
