Hi, is there a good site in the UK for ingredients for homemade cosmetics? Butters/waxes/essential oils and containers etc? Pref with organics? I've seen mountain rose herbs in the U.S. And it looks great but obviously p&p makes it prohibitive. Thanks in advance smile

Baldwins in London.
Aromantic, Moray, Scotland. Both have good online catalogues.

I get essential oils and other bits from Amphora Aromatics, if you're making a big order, sign up as a 'wholesale' customer and it's v good value for money (think it has to be £50+)

Amphora aromatics do allow trade prices if you buy over £50. I got a big consignment for my birthday ;-)

I got raw organic Shea butter off eBay. My college uses amphora.

They also sell bases.
Love them.

Yes Katie wetness mama uses mountain rose. There's so much stuff from the states I love but sadly don't go over like I used too!
