Aromas y Esencias – Bulk Soap – Jabón por Major

aromas-y-esenciasA couple of weeks ago we went to Lanús to buy our magnesium sulphate at Droguería Industrial Lanús and the guy who was serving us mentioned that a shop down the road sells essential oils.  We decided to go and see what they have to offer.

Aromas y Esencias offers high quality essential oils from Argentina and abroad at competitive prices.  They also offer one kilo bars of fragrance free glycerin and coconut oil soap for $35 which is a lot cheaper than buying your soap at the supermarket.

We noted the cost of Veritas brand fragrance free glycerin soap at Supermercado Coto; a pack of three bars (3×120 grams) costs $26.80; single bars cost $7.76.  The single bars at Coto are a bit cheaper but the bars at Aroma y Esencias are much cheaper.

Coconut oil soap is reputed to be beneficial for the hair.

Fruit and Veggie Prices – Precios Verdulería

Ayres Insider Fruit and Vegetable Price Comparison June 18, 2014

This week Ayacucho had better prices and selection – Esta semana Ayacucho tubo buenas selección y mejores precios

This week we compared prices at our regular Frutería y Verdulería Ayacucho with Carrefour and Disco.

The differences in prices were impressive.

The biggest price gap was mushrooms where the price at Ayacucho was $60.00/kg versus Disco’s price of $154.95/kg.

A big surprise was that prices in the government supermarket “basket” are very often more expensive than small sellers; for example tomatoes at Ayacucho cost $14.00/kg whereas the government implemented price at Carrefour and Disco was $29.99/kg.
