Listed below, you’ll find some of my favorite resources and things I love and use. Some links are affiliate links (which means I earn a small commission if someone clicks & buys), but others are not. All items have earned well-deserved places in my home.

Tins, Jars & Lip Balm Tubes:
The most economical source for tins and small glass jars is Specialty Bottle:
For affordable Lip Balm Tubes, Waterproof Labels & a Lip Balm Tube Filling Tray, check out Rustic Escentuals.
Handy Tools & Accessories:
A digital scale is essential for making soap and extremely useful for body care recipes, in addition to its usual kitchen handiness factor. I had this scale for almost 5 years before I finally wore it out. A great scale for the price!
This immersion (or “stick”) blender is highly recommended for making soap. It will save hours of stirring by hand and make success much more likely.
I consider this little food processor to be one of the best gifts I ever received! I’ve had mine at least 15 years and it’s still going strong. Useful for pureeing herbs, making baby food, chopping nuts and for mixing all sorts of concoctions!
I use this dehydrator by Nesco a ton! We obtained a hand-me-down from a relative, so before you buy, see if that option is available for you. My kids LOVE homemade fruit rolls-ups, but it’s also great for drying herbs, fruits and veggies.
Please note that some (but not all) of the links on this page are affiliate links. That means if you click on them and make a purchase, I may earn a small commission. This helps fund my blogging hobby. (Thank you!) :)
