Fiona has spent hours searching online for these to use with her potpourri and pomanders.

She found a great price but it was a US site and shipping was £150!

Hoping that some of you smoking enthusiasts may know of a reasonably priced UK supplier.

D, you didn't say a quantity you were looking for, so this is probably too small, but just a thought.

By the sound of it, it isn't possible to obtain it from the UK, it will have to come from USA, and therefore a premium to pay for the privilege of someone importing it!

I think you should speak to Michelle and Barbara...

I'll try that again!

Would you be able to get cedar shingles and split them yourselves? They are certainly available in this country--I had to have part of the house reshingled last year. Left-overs make terrific wedges for levelling furniture, and other general uses around the house, and the old, split ones are good to burn. I don't know where the builder got them, but a huge pack of them was less than the shipping price quoted, I think.

Thanks for finding that link, Val. those sachets are what she wants to make so it is the raw ingredient that she is looking for. Several kilos I guess. I can see lumber mills in the US that have mountains of the stuff but not found a UK bulk supplier yet.

Nice thought, TA, but probably impractical for Barbara to lug all that lot home. frown

Yes, impractical to bring back, even though we may well be driving past some of those lumber mills. I will have to be very restrained about what I get there, especially I as may well get lots of family photos to bring back with me. But try builders merchants for shingles, maybe damaged consignments?

What about other woods? Does it have to be cedar wood?

Just seen this thread.

I think cedar wood is resinous so no good for food smoking.

Just thought  would mention this smile
