I have been using the Noxzema for Pre-shave.  I would prefer the benefits of essential oils, but, I am stumped on where to get them.  I am in Houston so I am sure they are available here as almost everything else in the world is!!  Where do you buy your essential oils

I purchase mine from a shop here in Olympia, WA, that specializes in herbal remedies and what not. Super Supplements sells a bunch too.

Do a search and there are numerous online sources.  However, you may prefer finding a local source so you can check the fragrance in person.

It depends on what you want them for. Perfume-grade essential oils (with complex aromas, etc.) can be prohibitively expensive and hard to get, especially if the oils are rare or difficult to extract. But if you just want to rub essential oils on your skin, you should do fine with stuff that would be available at your local health food store.

Ask Roja Dove where he buys the oils he uses in his fragrances.  Icon_popcorn

Be prepared to have your eyes pop due to the number of zeros. Fragrance and essential oils can be expensive.

Roja Dove isn't a member here Tongue. He's basically the best perfumer in the world (IMHO obviously) and an unreserved genius. He's also known for selling extraordinarily expensive fragrances ($500+ basically) that use top quality ingredients.
