No, there aren't any ingredients listed on the bottle and I checked the website and couldn't find one there. Maybe I missed it. The "flavors" I have are BUTTERCREAM (smells like cupcakes), STRAWBERRY, PEACH and HONEY.
I have emailed the company lab and am waiting, now, for them to let me know if there is something about these oils that would make them a "no no" for hair products.....
Thanks for the advice pepper..... I'll check the net too for oils info.... just wasn't sure what to search for....

there isn't an ingredients list on the bottle? if not call or email the manufacturer and ask. oil of cinnamon should taste like cinnamon, not sweet cinnamon. i'd be surprised if they have sugar in them at all.
use away in cosmetics, shampoo, soap etc. just be sure to research the properties of the oils. citrus can sensitize the skin to sunlight, lots of other oils are strong and need to be diluted properly. get a book and read up.

I have a question here..... anyone feel free to offer your 2 cents.....
I have ALOT of "flavored" oils from The Sage that I have used for making lip balms and I am wanting to use them to make "foody" shampoos and conditioners. Can anyone think of a reason why these oils might NOT work for this purpose? They call them "flavored" but I can detect NO flavor or sweetness at all, so they don't seem to have sugar (or very very little) and they ARE cosmetic grade oils. Maybe they call them "flavored" because they are food scents? I might try it anyway. I mean if it's ok for something as sensitive as lips (and massage products according to The Sage site) then it should be ok for shampoo and such, right? Anyone with experience making shampoos and conditioners, let me know what you think. Or if you have experience with oils and mixing them.
Thanks!!!!!!

Yah, I can't see the pics either voodoo...it's asking me to register.

Thanks for the Dick Blick suggestion! I've gotten painting supplies from them several times before, but for some reason, I never thought of them for mosaics stuff.

WOW..... TRIPLE post but OH well, not like it's super busy here anyway!!!!! hee hee hee.
lot49 - Have you ever seen the Dick Blick catalog or website? They have tons and tons and tons (you get the idea) of art / craft stuff and probably have mosaic stuff. I have the catalog and I think you can get a catalog for free from the web site. I just prefer to have a real "live" catalog instead of just looking online.
Anyway, go to www.dickblick.com and check them out. You may find something else you like too.
If I ever win the lotto, I'm going on a Dick Blick shopping spree!!!!! WooHoo!!!!!!
I'll look around for you too and if I find anything good in way of mosaic supplies, I'll post it here.

do you have littles? my kid loves egg shell planters. we crack a shell, dump out the egg, give 'er a rinse, draw on a funny face, fill with wet cotton balls, sprinkle in seeds and mist every day until our eggs have hair. so much fun.
last week i wrapped the legs of our table with fake ivy and teeny little flowers. looks so cute.
i'm looking for some great fabric, maybe an old sari or something, to use as a curtain in front of the closet doors in my room. they are the slidey kind and are just a big beige blank on one wall. time for a cover up!
i've just about paid off my new sewing machine so the next project on the agenda is to clean out the sewing room/closet and sort that all out. boring busy work but then i'll be able to sew again, yeah!! the outdoor market just started up here again and i'm only working 3 days/wk so i'm thinking about finishing those recycled tshirt panties that i make and throwing together a few tops, skirts, dresses and such out of reclaimed materials. i think i could actually make a few bucks with my crafty nonsense for once.
wish me luck!!
yes to pictures of monsters, ooh, i LOVE monsters!

voodoo, can you post pics of your monsters? I would love to see them.

I must do something crafty, like this weekend. I finally bought an instructional manual for mosaics (I've been thinking about doing a mosaic for like two years and I certainly have enough broken china at this point to get started). Can anyone recommend a good online source for mosaic supplies?

I'm going to start making throw pillows out of that really neato "fur" material. I have found it in blue/green and pink/orange. I plan to find riveted eyes to attach to the fronts and use colorful ribbon to tie into bows and sew them on near the corners (like hair decorations)....
I'm just really into pillows, the more unique, the better.
I've already been making soft toys out of scrap material. They kind of are like oddly shaped, soft toy monsters. I use cool beer bottle caps for the eyes. I poke holes in them with nails and sew them on like buttons and then use fabric paint to put on mouths and toenails. My kids love them and I make them for my friends kids too. Some of them I scent with oils. I use plastic grocery bags to stuff them, so they get used and not just thrown away. Waste not want not, right?
