    Notes Lecithin liquid is better and you can get it in any drug store. I usually but it in the large capsule form. they are easy to put a pin hole in and squeeze the lecithin out however many drug stores also have it in a liquid form not in capsules also. I have never tried the powdered. Sweet almond oil is usually found behind the counter at walmart or a drug store.
