I was just wondering where you get all of the materials to make your products? I am having a hard time finding websites that sell natural, unrefined butters and essential oils. Thanks!

Hi Jordy,

I try to purchase my butters from Fair Trade businesses such as Agbanga Karite (Google to find other such companies). I get my essential oils from my local natural grocers (i.e. Whole Foods, Vitamin Cottage, etc.). These are not to be confused with fragrance oils.

I hope this helped. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for the great post!
