This morning I was flipping the channels and I came across HSN (television shopping channel) and I saw that they are selling kits to make your own melt and pour soap, bath scrubs and body oil. For $44.90 (event price) you received 3 essential oils (lavender, citrus, vanilla), packaging materials (labels, bottles, etc) , and supplies for what kit you chose (melt and pour soap base, safflower oils, salts). I thought the presentation was nice but I thought that it was rather expensive.
If you would like to see what HSN is selling to make your bath salts, M&P soap and body oils, you can check out the following links:
Bath and Body Oil Kit
Lisa's Kitchen Gentle Soap Kit
Lisa's Kitchen Sea Salt Scrub Kit
Also sold separately were 3 additional bottles of essential oils (.34 oz each) of lilac, gardenia and rose for $25.00, Lisa's Kitchen Soap Extras Refill Kit for $25.00 and a kit that contained colorants (red, yellow and blue) and dried flowers (lavender, angel wings which are my favorite and a couple of others).
I would admit that these kits are of a higher quality than you would find at Michaels and they probably are a great starter kit for someone who wants to try and make these products for the first time. But I think I would rather purchase a larger quantity of supplies to make more than having to go back and repurchase the kit if I wanted to make more. It would probably cost you alot less in the long run....
