descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
This is a very thick, white-like-water liquid. Due to its density, the container in which we dispense this product may not be filled to the top, i.e., 7 lbs. will be dispensed in a gallon jug, but the jug will be filled halfway.
Liquid vegetable glycerin is an odorless, colorless, syrupy liquid which may be derived from olive, palm, coconut or soybean.

Glycerin is used as a carrier for an active ingredient, is sweet tasting, warming to the skin and edible. Glycerin is used as the main ingredient in edible love oils, it’s used in vaping liquids 50/50 with propylene glycol which we also offer.. In herbology, glycerin's naturally sweet taste helps mask the flavor of bitter-tasting herbs and can be used to make extracts that are more potent than either alcohol or vinegar. Our glycerin is edible and does not include materials from China.
The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) is a non-profit organization that determines safe standards for drugs as well as medical devices and diagnostics. It s our understanding that once a USP-certified container is opened and its contents repacked into various sizes, the product loses its USP certification. We purchase in large quantities and repack; thus, the certification we receive on any USP-certified product which we repack is lost the moment we take this step. This product is Kosher but we do not provide paperwork for this certification. Our glycerin has 99.7% purity and contains 99.7% pure glycerin. INCI: Glycerin.

A staple in my shop
Glycerin is great for moisturizing and protecting skin! I use it in water-based products because it dissolves easily and I don't have to use an emulsifier. Very economical, and comes in a convenient tall plastic bottle!

I use a little of this in my body butters and add it to my hair conditioner for an added boost. It is going to last me forever! You really can't beat the price or quality!

*** Should have gotten a larger order***
I wasn't sure what this product would look like or how much it would enriched my body products. I love it and will make sure I keep this on hand.

Great price for a Great product.
I'm glad I got this product in a large quantity and the price was great to me for how much I got. Else where I had to pay more. I mix this with my other products to use on my hair. Can be sticky if you don't use enough water.
Reviewer: NAKETA HASKINS (LAVERGNE, TN) 4.6.2011
Awesome for keeping hair and skin moisturized!
With the weather warming up, I love to put glycerine in my hair spritz for added moisture. The price for the amount of product is UNBEATABLE! I wish I had ordered more bottles.
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.
Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.
EO = essential oil
FO = fragrance oil
Our containers are filled with products to where our commercial digital scales indicate the container should be filled. Some containers will be filled to the top, some will not.
HOW OILS ARE DISPENSED: All our products are dispensed by weight. EO's in 8 oz. through 2 lbs. - amber plastic pharmaceutical-grade bottle. EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail. It's our decision in which type of pail we dispense the product, metal cans are not readily available. CARRIER OILS - plastic bottles/pails depending on the size ordered, do not need to be transferred to glass unless you wish to do so. FO's - in plastic containers, contents do not need to be transferred to glass unless you wish to do so.
Essential oils in sizes from ½ oz. to 4 oz. are dispensed in amber glass bottles without orifice reducers or glass droppers. If we ever run out of amber glass bottles, we reserve the right to use any other glass bottle available at that time. The only sizes of EO's dispensed with orifice reducers are 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 oz. sizes. If you require bottles/vials with orifice reducers or Eurodroppers, we sell those separately.
HOW TO STORE: Upon receipt, EO's dispensed in plastic bottles MUST be transferred into amber glass bottles. EO's, FO's and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Many oils could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames.
