Our first order from Bulk Apothecary arrived today!  The intention of this order was to set the stage for making our own household cleaning products, shampoo, soap (also to be favors for our wedding guests), body sprays, lotions, lip balms, etc... and containers to hold them in.

This order consisted of:

  • Beeswax
  • Black Fine Mist Sprayers and Cobalt Blue Bullet Bottles
  • Borax
  • Castor Oil
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Glycerin
  • Golden Jojoba Oil
  • Kaolin Clay (white)
  • Lime Essential Oil
  • Lip Balm Jars (white, 0.25 oz)
  • Rose Soap Stamp
  • Shea Butter
  • Silicone Rectangle Soap Molds
  • Sodium Hydroxide (lye)
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Witch Hazel

Unfortunately, we had some lessons to learn with this order:

  1. The Bulk Apothecary rep I called questimated that this order may have as many as seven packages.  This deterred me from using Mike's Parcel Pickup who charges $5 USD per package.  As the shipment only came in three boxes, Mike's fees would have been much better.  Oh well, I guess the rep guestimated high, which would be the preferred choice to guestimating low.
  2. UPS offering to broker packages from the US is stupid expensive... like add $50 to $70 dollars on top of your government taxes.  I wished I had known about this and declined their offer to broker the package for me; choosing to self-clear it myself.
