    Question Lemon Grass Oil

    Lemon Grass Oil

    Was wondering if someone mite tell me where to buy this in bulk on the West Coast perferably? If not Where? Since this is measured in pounds, I would like to be able to get this in 5lbs to 25lbs or more. I am not interested in a few ozs. I have tried to google it. Thought it mite be easier to ask this board. The beeks here are loaded with a wealth of info.

    Also where would one buy Citric Acid in bulk?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Default Bulk oils

    I've never used them but Camden-Gray in Florida sells Lemongrass Oil (75%) - 25lbs for $500.

    Although I like Camden grey, Lebermuth has a much better price...

    They're not west coast but at least centrally located in Indiana. We use them for menthol crystals.

    Health Food / Herb Stores is were I get it here. Call and ask them if they carry essential oils. Pick up some spearmint oil too while your there.

    Thanks all for the reply's. After much consideration I decided to buy from Lebermuth. They seemed to the most reasonable.

    Now if someone could let be know where one would buy CITRIC ACID in bulk I think I would be set, at least for now.


    Again many Thanks

    "The L-enantiomer of ascorbic acid is also known as vitamin C. The name "ascorbic" comes from its property of preventing and curing scurvy. Primates, including humans, and a few other species in all divisions of the animal kingdom, notably the guinea pig, have lost the ability to synthesize ascorbic acid, and must obtain it in their food." From WIKI, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ascorbic_acid

    So they are mirror images, with L form having more bio availability. I assume the girls like it?
