For over 3 years, I prided myself on being the one-stop shop for raw ingredients and supplies for all of your natural DIY needs. Then, I just couldn’t do it anymore (read this blog post if you’re keen to know why). 

It is important to me that everyone has access to suppliers of natural ingredients and accessories for DIY, and that’s what you’ll find here.

Where possible, I have secured a discount code with suppliers. In some instances, these suppliers have kindly offered a small kickback for me too (read here for more affiliate info). By using the coupon codes provided, we both benefit (and I do believe after the years of research I put in it is well deserved!). Each supplier varies in their terms and conditions, so if you’re unsure at checkout, send them an email 🙂

I have plans to continuously add to this list to give you the most options possible.  If you have a recommendation for me, or if you run a business yourself that aligns with my vision, get in touch!

Note: I haven’t purchased from all of the businesses listed below, and personally haven’t had time to research them all, so it’s in your best interest to ask businesses questions if you’re uncertain. When given the choice between regular and certified organic, make a decision based on your priorities and budget. Some of the companies listed have both versions available. I almost always stocked the certified organic version, but this can be considerably more expensive. Also bear in mind that some ingredients cannot be certified as organic.

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Ask around. Ecosia (Google) it: “insert ingredient” + “insert city (if you want to stay local)” + “organic” (if that is important to you, or possible, depending on the ingredient you’re after of course – not everything can be sourced organically). If you have a supplier you trust or you yourself are a supplier, let us know here.
