I arrived in Germany a couple of months ago and have been trying to find some items. Does anyone know where i can go to find essential oils that i can use for making homemade facial scrubs and masks? I am also looking for jojoba oil and glycerin. I'm thinking the apotheke but I didn't know if there were any other options. I appreciate the help

You can order essential oils from Amazon.
Make sure it's not Lampenöl or Duftöl. (oil for fragrant oil burners, fragrant oil)

Chemist or Reformhaus will stock those.

I always wondered why they are called "essential" when 98% of people don't use them.

They have a couple of essential oils (I've found Orange, Lemongrass, Citronella, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Tea Tree) at DM, Rossmann, and Nanu Nana, in the same area as the Parfum/Duftöl varieties (except the Tea Tree, which is in a different section--herbal remedies or similar, and is the good stuff I used to get in Australia). Not sure if maybe you're looking for a higher grade or something, but I use them all for cleaning and occasionally bath products. Oh I've also seen them at Kaufland.

In Munich there is a shop called Spinnrad
. Looks like you can order online or maybe there is a branch near you.

has 2 stores in Munich plus a big online shop - they should have all that you need.

For my facial cleanser (oil cleansing method) I get Jojoba and tea tree (Tee Bäume) oil from Alnatura. They have a pile of other essential oils as well. Good luck!

You can get liquid glycerine at the apotheke. Where I got it, they filled as much as I needed, not sure of you can get pre-measured amounts. But no problem to fill to order.
