Hi! I'm a complete newb in this area, but I love the scent of Bergamot & Grapefruit and would like to try to make a simple melt & pour soap.

Can anyone suggest a source for these scents?

Thanks!

Mmm that sounds good! I can't find a blend of that in the www.fragranceoilfinder.com so you probably will have to make your own blend. If you search for Grapefruit and Bergamot separately you can find several places that carry both. I would probably recommend www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com because of what part of the country you're in for cheaper shipping. If you think you might be doing any more soaping/lotion making/etc. I might recommend buying a sampler from a company of 6 different one ounce fragrances to get the best bang for your buck. You won't need much fragrance to do MP, so if you wanted more than just the 2 fragrances that would be a great deal for you.

Bergamot Mandarin

Grapefruit


Or Southern Scents is good too! Crap they just do large amounts now, their "east coast" supplier is Sassy Girl Scents

Pink Grapefruit

They don't seem to have Bergamot, but they do have the one ounce sampler I was talking about for a decent price

www.Brambleberry.com is another good supplier.
