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). I promised to share my suppliers with you, and here it is. I have plans to continuously add to this list as I find reputable business worthy of recommendation. If you have a recommendation for me, or if you run a business yourself that aligns with my vision, get in touch!

Where possible, I have secured a discount code with suppliers. In some instances, these suppliers have kindly offered a small kickback for me too. 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 developed a beautiful business relationship with most of my trusty suppliers (I’m the customer who calls and emails with a billion questions about quality, sourcing, possible contamination, sustainability etc) but I do recommend you keep the following in mind when choosing where you shop:

 

  • Don’t take my, or anyone else’s, word for it. Ever. What is good for me, may not be good for you (although my version of good in this space is pretty good!). Ask your own questions, do your own research if you feel you need to.
  • At the time of my research, the suppliers below ticked all of the boxes for me, but I didn’t always buy every product they sold. Some ingredients didn’t meet my standards, hence the wide number of suppliers I used to order from. (As time goes on and I add suppliers I haven’t personally had time to research, I’ll be sure to make that clear in the write-up.)
  • Just because certain ingredients met my needs then, doesn’t mean they still will 6, 12, 18 months down the line. People change, situations change, formulas and processes change. I won’t have time to keep an eye on every ingredient listed and sold, but I will tell you what I used to purchase and you can be sure that at the time it was by far the best quality I could source for a reasonable price.
  • 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.
  • If I haven’t listed a supplier for a particular ingredient you are after, this is what you need to do… Do some research and reading. 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.
  • Most of these suppliers have wholesale programs, meaning you can apply to get bulk discounts. I won’t go into detail on this within each supplier info block, but if you run a business, you might like to ask them about this. Often, shipping becomes cheaper too.

The following is a list of my suppliers that have kindly offered a discount code for you:

    Supplier list by state, as recommended to me by the TILP community:

    I have tried to list businesses based on the state they operate from, but I can’t guarantee they have a storefront or allow pick up. Please note that I haven’t had the opportunity to personally vet all of the businesses on this list. Some I have used, and some I have never heard of but were suggestions given to me by my lovely TILPotters over in the Facebook discussion group. As times goes by, I will work through them and provide more info on the ingredIents they sell, shipping/pick up info etc., but for now, you’ll need to jump onto each site, or make a phone call and suss them out yourselves.
