Why don’t you only use ingredients that are easily available globally?

Mostly because that’s an impossible standard. Sadly enough, clean water isn’t even in the “easily available globally” category! I have a decent idea of ingredient availability in Canada and the USA as those are the countries I shop from, but it is impossible for me to keep abreast of the full inventory of every supplier on the planet (especially ones who do not operate in English) and then only use ingredients that are available globally.

I try not to use too many weird/hard to get ingredients, but I also like to play with new ingredients and learn new things. I publish two new recipes every week, and there’s only so much I can make with coconut oil and beeswax. If your ingredient availability is limited to more crunchy ingredients I’d recommend checking out this section of my website—there are still tons of recipes there for you to make!
