f there’s anything that can make me come out of blog post hiding, it’s essential oils (or really anything to do with healthy living). My sister (EO pro) recently hosted a party featuring Young Living oils and it reignited my passion for the healthy, holistic lifestyle and DIY household goods. Seriously, did you know you can make your own deodorant?
So I’m sticking my toes back into the water and educating myself on great sites such as Young Living (seriously, check it out) and The Droppery, which introduced me to great DIY remedies and household cleaners. The best part is that it’s so much more affordable.
This brought me to my first hiccup… where do I found raw almond oil and white beeswax pastilles? What IS the heck a pastille? Naturally, I get online because I promise you no place in my town sells unbleached cocoa butter. To my happy surprise, I stumble upon Bulk Apothecary! This site is amazing! They seriously have everything and in lots of different sizes and costs so if you really want 16lbs of shea butter, you can have that. Do you want 30lbs of beeswax? Sure, you can have that too. I’ll take the 16oz but that’s just me.
Just for kicks, I went on Amazon (which is unfortunately notorious for people re-selling less potent/pure EOs and EO accessories, so I was already taking a huge risk there) and I DID find all the same ingredients. However, most products didn’t allow me to choose the size or weight, and it cost about $3-5 MORE per product. Crazy! So I quickly exited out of my Amazon cart and kept shopping at Bulk Apothecary.
And I STILL have good news for you. If you, like me, want to do some DIY home supplies (even if you’re not into EOs, making your own face cream is pretty darn fun) then click here to be redirected to Bulk Apothecary where they’ll give you $10 off your first order just to encourage you to get started! It’s a win-win. They even sell glass jars and containers to store your EO lotions, balms, shampoos, and such.
Check them out and use the link to make sure you get your $10. Enjoy the oily life!
