It is so important to use quality ingredients in all your DIY projects. The right products can make all the difference in the quality and texture of your creation. The following are my suggestions for the most common ingredients in my recipes.
- Shea Butter
- Witch Hazel
- Aloe Vera Gel
- Vitamin E
- Emulsifying Wax
- Meadowfoam Seed Oil
- Rosehip Seed Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Carrot Seed Essential Oil
- Geranium Essential Oil
I understand that purchasing all the ingredients for a certain DIY can get expensive. Amazon often offers fast, free shipping so if you’re in a pinch and need to save on ingredients, I have created my list of Amazon products that I have experimented with and liked. (FYI-I always prefer Mountain Rose Herb and Spark Naturals over Amazon when it comes to quality.)
Spark Naturals is my essential oil company of choice. They offer PURE, certified pharmagrade essential oils. Essential oils are the powerhouses of my DIY skin care recipes. Using a cheaper and possibly diluted essential oil then what I suggest could result in your products being ineffective or not pure. Go HERE for more info. on Spark Naturals.

Mountain Rose Herbs have quality organic ingredients. They are a great company to order ANY ingredients from! I can rest easy knowing this company sources the best possible ingredients that are certified organic, fair trade, ethically harvested and cruelty free.
Using the right coconut oil is especially important when it comes to ingesting and using coconut oil in recipes. I find that if I don’t use a quality coconut oil the textures of my recipes are just not the same. If you want the highest possible quality that will create the most luxurious textures, Tropical Traditions is the only coconut oil you should use. Coconut oil is an amazing way to heal the skin. This is another reason why I choose the highest quality I can find. I use Tropical Traditions coconut oil in all my smoothie recipes. I also use their Refined coconut oil when cooking chicken and fish.
