Where do you buy your ingredients and packaging for all your DIY projects?

Most of my ingredients and packaging come from New Directions Aromatics, Windy Point Soap Making Supplies, Voyageur Soap & Candle, and YellowBee—all of those suppliers are Canadian, so if you’re not, you may not want to deal with cross-border shipping. For cosmetics, I use TKB Trading and deal with the cross border shipping (ouch). I also have a handy-dandy Where to Buy Ingredients (and packaging) page that’s full of links to places you can purchase ingredients and packaging all over the world.

For packaging—If you’re in the USA, SKS Bottle has some great stuff (curse that cross border shipping, I’d order from them all the time if I could), TKB Trading has great makeup packaging, and Amazon has pretty much everything.

If you see any packaging that looks very unique/old, I likely picked it up at an op-shop, antique shop, or received it as a gift. In any of those cases, I’m afraid I can’t be of any help finding another 🙂 I always recommend checking local odds-and-sods shops for containers, though—you can find some fantastic ones!
