Where can I find lavender oil and tea tree oil? Can I find them at Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop?

Yeah, you can find lavender at the Body Shop (never looked for TTO there) but it's WAY overpriced.

I get mine at my local Henry's (like a Wild Oats or such store). Every few months they have TTO on sale for $7.99 for a 2 oz bottle (usually $9.99) and lavender oil for $11.99 (haven't seen that one on sale).

HTH!

Thanks for your help! Is using these oils the best way to keep a diaper pail smelling fresh? I need something to tone down the amonia smell.

I found a combined lavender and tea tree oil at drugstore.com for $8.49. http://www.drugstore.com/qxp83682_33...a_tree_oil.htm Is it good to use these oils combined?

I found tea tree oil in the vitamins section at Target. I have also seen it at the regular ol' grocery store in the vitamin/organic section.

The Desert Essence brand is what I saw at drugstore.com. It's not a bad price at $8.49 a bottle.

Kmart does too!

Can I buy Bac-out anywhere locally or do I have to get it online?

Wal Mart has tea tree in their pharmacy dept, where the vitamins and first aid stuff is (at the one by me, at least). You can find lavender oil at a health food store, or online.

$4.92 for 2 oz, at Wal-Mart. It's in a brown bottle, on shelf along with rubbing alcohol.
