Also you can buy Ephedrine DIRT cheap so saving money not issue.
Not sure of your location but here in the States, in addition to a few other countries, ephedrine is tightly regulated/monitored. You can't purchase the raw ingredient and it is banned from supplements. Only way to purchase it legally is through decongestant-based meds... this is where I assume the "homemade" comes into play (combining the 3).
Another option to look at could also be geranamine/1,3-dimethylamylamine. Most raw-bulk supplement suppliers sell it, dirt cheap, and comparable to ephedrine.
