With almost every post, we almost always get questions from readers asking where they can buy certain items that we used in our homemade products. If you’re wondering where you can find things like:
- essential oils
- organic coconut oil
- herbs and spices
- washing soda
- baby care products
The links below should point you in the right direction. Please note, some of these are affiliate links, meaning that I earn a little bit for referring you to these sites. But rest assured that I only recommend products that I trust and use myself – I would NEVER advocate a product that I’ve never used, and I would never advertise a product for the sole purpose of earning event 1 cent on it. The companies below are great businesses that care about their customers and offer high-quality items. Read more on my disclosure page.
My Amazon store is filled with all sorts of products that I use in my homemade recipes – from essential oils and other raw ingredients, to cleaning supplies and green living books!
For essential oils, organic herbs, spices and teas, and bulk ingredients like oils, butters, and wax, Mountain Rose Herbs offers a very large selection of high-quality products at affordable prices. They have great specials every month, with 10%, 20%, and even 30% off some of their products. They ship internationally, have an amazing 60-day return policy, and their customer service is just impecable – all-around, a very trustworthy company!
For organic, unrefined, virgin coconut oil, Tropical Traditions is the place to find the best coconut oil! I just love this stuff and use it for so many things around our home. I use it to cook, to bake, to make personal care products…really, the possibilities are almost endless. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined oil, harvested and pressed in the rural Philippine mountains, using old-fashioned traditional methods – no machine processing! It’s made by hand and benefits families in the rural areas of the Philippines where the coconuts grow. I can’t say enough good things about this oil.
For all-natural, organic baby (and mama) care products, Earth Mama Angel Baby is an amazing company with some really great products! I especially love their Angel Baby Bottom Balm and the Earth Mama Body Butter! They offer free shipping for orders over $49 and they carry some really wonderful bundled kits for pregnancy, postpartum recovery, breastfeeding, and baby care. You can even browse their products by the specific herbs you want in your products!
One of the most common questions we receive is where you can find washing soda, used for making household cleaners and laundry detergents. Here are some tips on where to find washing soda (which is NOT the same as baking soda!)
- in the laundry aisle at your grocery store
- in the pool cleaner aisle at Walmart, brand name is AquaChem. Just make sure the only ingredient listed is sodium carbonate!
- call this phone number 1-800-524-1328 and have the UPC code 33200-03020. The service will ask for your zip code and then tell you places in your area that sell it.
- you can make your own by cooking baking soda in the oven until it becomes washing soda!
- If you’re in the US, you may purchase it online from Amazon.
- If you’re in CANADA, you may purchase it online from Well.ca.
