gettingthere mentioned this site as a source for the indian ayurvedic powders shikakai, amla, and aritha which she was using to make a hair nourisher/cleansing tea. i went by to check out the pickings and spent subsequent HOURS looking through the recipes, oils, butters, soapmaking supplies, and fragrance & essential oils. this is now officially my new FAVORITE source for all ingredients i imagine i'll need for a while for my hair pudding and bath mixtures; i am completely sprung off this site and i haven't even ordered from there yet!

no orders honeychild? so might this excitement be premature? sure it might, and i'll post again after i've received an order with a review of shipping time, customer service, product quality, etc. but just from looking at their site they have the best prices for refined shea butter i've seen online ($7 per POUND i think, and i'm paying $5 at my rasta spot for 4 oz!) not to mention a million other butters and fragrance oils and essential oils and pots and bottles and emulsifiers & conditioner base and exfoliating clays and organic herbs. they sell butters i never heard of -- illipe butter! also avocado butter, sweet almond butter, ALOE butter & mango butter. i am giddy off the recipes and inspiration alone.

had to share!

I peeped the site. And I can't get off. :D There is so much useful information.

ETA:
Found these two sites last night while researching info on herbs and oils.
These look good too.

http://www.botanical.com/

http://www.camdengrey.com/ - for this one click on the eo and butters description tabs at the top of the page.

Enjoy.

You're not premature. As a soapmaker, I order from FNWL and Camdengrey all the time. Both of them are great, but I prefer camdengrey.

@aishad,
Your a soapmaker. I am starting to make my own soaps too. Which method do you use (cp or mp - Cold Process or Melt & Pour).

Peace

@twistedmama

I do cold process although I have done melt and pour. It's not as 'authentic' to me, when I do cold process, I feel like I have created something wonderful. :) I was telling someone today they should start making some, I haven't bought a bar of soap in three years.

I may be a lil late on this thread,but I was wanting to make castille soap but got discouraged when I couldn't find the Red Devil anywhere!!!
I also don't have a double-boiler to use for soap either :(
Can anyone give me suggestions on a method (for a beginner) and where to find the lye?
REGEE
BTW- I've been itching to order from here http://www.brambleberry.com/essential.html

This is a great place and they have low shipping prices!!

I was up till 1am looking at Brambleberry's site. I even read the customer reviews. I can not believe they give fo and eo samples. When I get some money I will get the m&p sampler soaps.

I think you can find the lye @ hardware stores and grocery stores. Or anywhere they sell liquid plummer.

HTH

Well based on what I read from the customer reviews, whenever you order from them, they send you a free 1ozs sample with your order.

I have not ordered from them yet but I have already setup my list when I am able to. :D

Peace,

Your hair looks great!!

@Twistedmama...

Thanks I just put in an order at fromnaturewithlove.com and I'm about to do a lil (very very little I hope :roll: :wink: ) shopping at brambleberrys. I say very little because it seems that shopping there can become addictive for first timers :)

I bookmarked this site. I love making my own stuff especially if it is not too complicated or labor intensive. I will definitely try to make up some concoctions. Thanks for the info.
