  1. Thank you! That's good to know which questions to ask about the oils. Hopefully I can eventually take a course. One book I got wasn't great so I'm sending that back but I got a few more that have been really helpful!
  2. I want to unsee it AND buy the Wonder Woman one all at the same time
  3. Ooooh a west coast FO Supplier! I'm excited about this! I'm actually trying to pare down my FO choices but then I find new places to buy from.
  4. @kandlekrazy are you saying they work better in m&p or not at all? That's what I do. I won't buy them from an MLM company for sure. I think the one I bought from says they're already wholesale pricing. But it's taken over 2 weeks to get my order so I may find someone else to get them from next time. @Dana It is nice to see familiar names and "faces"! I joined here so long ago! I did look into some of the aromatherapy courses and such online and it would be good to learn! Just kind of expensive! I'm already doing an online marketing course right now. I'm looking forward to the books I'm getting and I'm sure they'll help me quite a bit.
  5. Thanks so much for all of that! I've had to think through the lip balm and will definitely keep the flavors I have already and probably just add a few that are lip safe. Lip balm is one of my best selling products so I don't want to ruin that! I don't do anything with wax at the moment because I was using the ones that were discontinued and now totally gone so I haven't had the energy to try to replace it. I plan mainly to do some body oils and also in the other products I currently have (solid lotion, body butter etc....) And also keep my best selling fragrance oils! I can't stop selling those! It's taking FOREVER for the essential oils I ordered to come in but they're finally arriving tomorrow so I can start testing. I also have some books coming. One that I got was not helpful so I'm returning that one.
  6. Thank you for that info! I have read info from some of the suppliers so that has definitely helped quite a bit! It's the other info that causes the stress! lol. I ordered a book that someone on here had recommended in another post so I'm excited for that to arrive. The soap I make is melt and pour so I don't know if that make a difference at all? I have a lot of testing to do! I'm also glad to be remembered I keep meaning to spend more time here but it just hasn't happened.
  7. All of them I hope I make solid lotion, body butters, sugar scrubs, lip balm ( i know some aren't lip safe?), body oils, soaps.
  8. Hi all! Not sure if you remember me or not, I used to be a lot more regular on here! I am in the process of adding essential oils to my products and am learning all that I can about it. I've run into A LOT of "scary" information out there because of problems with the MLM claims and such. I've used essential oils personally but have never used them in my products and am a little nervous about going forward with them. It's like looking up symptoms online and the worst is always shown! Is using essential oils similar to fragrance oils? have a great day!
  9. I'm on the I wouldn't reuse them team. Unless I was making them for myself but even then I don't keep the used ones lying around. They looked used after one time to me.
  10. I let mine cure for 7 days before starting to test them.
  11. It is weird that it says left with individual. Seems like that individual would have known it wasn't for them? It also took a long time for her to contact you after it was delivered. If tracking shows delivered, any case against you will usually be found in your favor if you decide not to reimburse. Definitely have them check with their local post office, they'll need the tracking number.
  12. This happens from time to time and it's SO frustrating. Luckily it's not TOO often. Most of the time, I end up replacing the order. It's the cost of business sometimes and good to have a happy customer. Though sometimes it's easy to feel like they're taking advantage. But I want to assume the best in my customer. I've had packages marked delivered and then show up a few days later but sounds like she's already done that. Hopefully it wasn't too big of an order. I would definitely have her contact her post office to see if they can help out first!
  13. Most of my fragrances are from NG. There's a lot of great ones already mentioned. Also sounds like there are some I need to try! I do like the Fresh Brewed Coffee but it's not my favorite coffee from them. I do prefer the Mt. Hazelnut one like Gail mentioned or Cafe Mocha is great too. I agree Tinsel is amazing, such a unique fragrance! Other ones not mentioned that I love are Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Elf Sweat, Reindeer Poo, Apple Jack & Peel, Caramel Apple, Jack Frost, Fresh Outdoors. I'm sure I'm missing some!
  14. I have just a little bit of PB left and I also mixed it with xcel which I have a lot of that left. I LOVE my wax melts and I want to pretend that lots and lots of testing is NOT in my future. Mixing a container wax and pillar wax for wax melts seems to help with some of the frosting/crumbling problems but I haven't tested any waxes in a really long time so that may have changed.
  15. I wish I had seen a year ago that they were discontinuing these waxes, I would have bought more to stock up. But of course, i didn't know until I went to buy more eco PB wax and it was no where to be found! That way I could have been testing all summer instead of waiting till the busy season to test. I think the American waxes are ones that seemed promising, and maybe the Golden waxes too. I'm hoping to start testing soon!
