    Talking Where do you buy your oils?

    There are SO many oils that I want to experiment with (peppermint oil, rosemary oil, grape-seed oil, etc), but there aren't any Whole Foods close to where I live, and I've heard that certain oils can be pretty pricey...

    So, where do you all buy your oils? Do you order them online? Do you find it kind of pricey?

    Thanks

    I use to order online from all over different places for my oils (vitamin shoppe, swansonvitamins.com, amazon, vitamindeal.com, etc.) for emu oil, peppermint oil, lavander oil, and so on.

    For phyiscal locations, I know Trader Joe's, World Fair, GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, and your local food stores would have a few oils (ie. olive oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil, coconut oil, etc.).

    The only oil I found pricey and wish I never brought was emu oil. It was an okay, funny smelling oil, but 20 bucks for an 2 ounce bottle? I don't know what make me get it years ago...I think it was for healing my ance scars on my face and a chemically damaged scalp. It lasted a couple of months, but I'll never get it again.

    I love my grape seed oil. I get a 24 ounce bottle at my local grocery store for 4 bucks. For my hair, GSO made my hair kinda silky-ish...I can't explain it. It just a great oil for me. It's not heavy, but not too light for me. No smell to me at all. It lasts me for a few months.

    Sunflower oil. Picked this up for around five dollars at Marshall's last year. Great ceramide. Mix it in everything from deep conditioners to just sealing my ends. I do remember seeing grape seed oil there as well.

    The health food store is where I go for carrier oils and essential oils.

    I've also gotten castor oil there as well. However you can also purchase that in a drug store or the pharmacy section at Walmart.

    I've grown accustomed to the expense. Anything natural/organic is often more costly than general items.

    I get a lot of my oils from GNC or the health food store. I get extra virgin olive oil from the supermarket. I usually wait until the first week of the month to buy oils from GNC so I can use their Gold Card and get a discount.

    I usually order my oils online from swansonvitamins.com or vitacost.com, both carrier and essential oils. I just went to kroger last week and bought a HUGE bottle of grapeseed oil for about 5 bucks! Great steal! EVOO you can get at regular grocery stores which is what I do. Fromnaturewithlove also sells alot of the oils

    I buy mine from eBay. I haven't had any problems with getting any bootleg oils or anything.
