where to get your materials & equipment
Sometimes the hardest part of doing it yourself is finding the ingredients, so I have compiled a short list of suppliers. I prefer to deal with local, family owned, environmentally conscious businesses with a passion for their product. If there is something you can't find, just email me and i'll see if I can help. Unfortunately (for me), none of these businesses have offered to pay me for my kind words, yet!
All Australian Candle Making & Supplies
A great place to start your candle and soap making journey. Lots of tutorials and FAQs to ensure your crafting experience is a safe and successful one. Not as cheap as some of the wholesalers, but definitely worth a look when the process is a little unfamiliar. One can get so easily lost in wick sizes and additives in the beginning, and it really is a trial and error process for a lot of the projects, so starting with a kit or at the very least a step-by-step tutorial is highly recommended.
Aussie Soap Supplies
The exclusive Australian distributer of Bramble Berry products, Aussie Soap Supplies is a vegan friendly business focused on building rewarding relationships with their customers. They started as passionate soap makers and moved into teaching and distribution of goods when the love of process just couldn't be contained. Fabulous! Find moulds, fragrances, extracts, oils, equipment, books, and much more.
An internet based business in Brisbane, QLD run by a lovely lady who works incredibly hard to do whatever she can to make your home made experience a joy. As a small business owner I fully appreciate the time and energy Karen dedicates to her clients, and highly recommend the products on the website.

I source the majority of my body & bath supplies from these guys. Great prices and fabulous organic/sustainable products available in bulk with very reasonable shipping. Max is always working hard to make certain his customers are 100% satisfied, so give him the feedback he deserves. We all like to know how much we're appreciated for our efforts.
