Finding quality suppliers can be one of the frustrating parts of being a business owner. We need suppliers who have quality products in stock at competitive prices, that ship quickly and also provides great customer service. So I’m going to review some suppliers on the blog so that you can see if they’re a good fit for your business. Today I will review New Directions Aromatics. All comments and opinions are my own, and I was not compensated in any way for writing this review.
New Directions Aromatics has both U.S. and Canadian- based websites, so entrepreneurs and hobbyists in both countries can shop for their bath and body supplies. They carry an extensive range of essential oils, fragrance oils, carrier oils, clays, herbs and salts, cosmetic and melt and pour soap bases, packaging and even candle making supplies. Their ingredients are packaged well – I’ve never had a item arrive damaged or leaking whenever I’ve ordered from NDA, and I like the sizes they offer. I have always been pleased with the quality of ingredients I’ve ordered over the last 7+ years.
Prices are on average pretty reasonable – like any supplier, some prices are much better than you can find elsewhere, and others are comparable or higher. I always suggest you compare prices across all of your suppliers to see where you’re getting the best deal. But some of the perks I like most about New Directions Aromatics that I haven’t already mentioned are:
- savings of 3% on every order placed online
- an additional 2% savings if the order total exceeds $500
- newsletter subscribers receive additional savings throughout the year
- weekly specials sent via e-newsletter
- fast turnaround time
- very reasonable shipping prices
- great customer service
The only drawback I can state about this company is their minimum order policy of $100. This may be too steep for some business owners who may only need to purchase one ingredient. Overall, I recommend New Directions Aromatics as a high quality supplier. Check them out and see if they are a good fit for you and your business!
