Have you tried bidding on ebay?
I've been looking for some ingredients I need for my hobby in the store the other day but it is way too expensive. It costs 54 dollars for a 1 ml. sandalwood essential oil! wow! but I checked on ebay and guess what? same essential, 50 ml. for only 4.50 dollars plus 5 dollars shipping. It's cheaper right? so I bought 5 different essentials for less than 30 dollars! It works good when mixed to other oils.
I also bought 100 empty vials for only 5.99.
This ebay thing is addicting. I think I need to stay away with it for a while.
Have a nice day!
