Question ? where to buy lotion supply- lecithin, cocoa butter, emulsifying wax

Where can I purchase small quantities of natural lotion making supplies?? I found a few simple recipes that I want to try, but I need at least one OR all of the following: lecithin, cocoa butter, emulsifying wax.

I have some fantastic smelling plants in my garden this year that I'm dying to make lotion from: lemon balm , lavender, chamomile, chocolate mint, spearmint. Does anyone have a favorite simple lotion recipe they are willing to share? Any tips?
TIA!!

I love www.brambleberry.com for supplies. They also have a sister website for recipes: www.teachsoap.com

That was SUPER helpful. Thank you! I was starting to wonder if lotion/soap making was a well guarded secret like Houdini's magic tricks!

ETA I have just found a TON of weekend projects on this site!! I LOVE that they list the ingredients as I am a spaz about chemicals. Hooray! Lotions and lipbalms here I come!

Holy Yumminess! I am so excited!

Oh man, the stuff on this site is fun! I can hardly decide where to start, or what scents to get! The lip balm kit, the lotion supplies, or the bee soap kit? AKK! I can't choose!
