Lesson 10.2 Supplies & Services

Here are the resources I use to gather supplies and build my business. Over the years I have worked to gather this information to keepĀ  my costs low. Every link or resource I post is a product or company I use. In some cases some links may be affiliate. I will state which ones are so that you know. I have not added any links to businesses from whom I have not personally purchased.

Online Resources

Soap Making Supplies

Essential Depot is quality supplier of oils, lye, fragrance oils, & essential oils. I buy my lye from this resource exclusively. They have the best price when adding the shipping. I am also a member of the $5 dollar a month Greener life club, and I find the discounts worth the membership. The link above is an affiliate link. Thank you to all who help support this website.

Website Services

Siteground is one of the services I have subscribed to for over 10 years. Yes, I have websites and domains that have been parked here for over a decade, and I am still active with this service. I have other web hosting services, but if you aren't a developer Siteground has an easy format for you to select whatever type of website you want and gives you 24 hour support if you have any questions.

Tools & Equipment

Printing & Packaging Supplies

This location will offer you the best rates in shrink wrap and heat sealers. I buy tissue, bags, & boxes here, but you have to shop and do some comparison.

This is my choice when I want to print business cards, and promotional material.

Offline - Real World Resources

Soap Making Supplies

Ever wonder how high volume soap makers get oil at 3 - 10 cents an ounce..... AND.....no shipping fees? If you're one of the lucky ones who live near a Restaurant Depot, there is an entire aisle for just oil that looks like a warehouse hiding the ark of the covenant. This is a B2B store, and you will need a resellers permit to get a membership, which you may already have to pay your state sales tax. Once you sign up, the membership is free! You will find Palm Oil, & Olive Oil at bulk offers for pennies to what you can find it for online.

Supplies & Resources

In the links provided on this page you'll find resources on where to buy your soap making supplies, tools, packaging materials and even tech and web hosting resources. Some of these resources are well known popular soap makers outlets and some are smaller preferences.

The goal of this resource page is to locate the supplies required for your business or craft at the smallest cost to you. Every link below is the place where I buy my supplies. I have listed specifically what it is that I buy from each business. Note: This may change as I discover new outlets and apply the price comparisons.

If you are a subscriber outside the united states, these resources may not be the lowest cost to you after you calculate the shipping time and cost. So if you are in the UK or somewhere else abroad, and you have other resources that you would like to share you are welcome to contact me about that. I will be happy to add that on this page. In some cases, some of the links provided here may be affiliate links. By supporting this page through these affiliate links we are able to create and provide more content for you, so your support to us here is helpful in every way. When we have an affiliate link posted, you will see this in the description and they will be made clear to you which ones are affiliate links. These types of links do not in any way affect my reviews, information, or references about the information associated with it.

There are no resources listed here simply for the purpose of being an affiliate list. Every business that I have listed are the current places that I use for supplies and stock. This is a page that can change depending on my purchase experiences and new discoveries. The priority of this page is to provide the reader a consolidated place to find the best prices for their stock room.
