    I purchased this oil as a substitute and I have found that it surprisingly packs a punch! It has been very effective! I wasn't sure what to expect from Amyris - it was my 1st bottle ever & I'm extremely satisfied- I do wish it smelled a bit better- but effectiveness is my #1 it gets 5 stars
    Dark and sweet smelling

    Absolutely love this essential oil. Has woodsy and citrus undertones. Both male and female customers seem to enjoy this. Blends well with citrus and florals.
    I enjoyed using the Amyris

    I often use this Amyris essential oil. It smells earthy and clay like to me. It has a thicker texture then most essential oils. Scent has good staying power.
    Great sandalwood substitute

    I use this essential oil as a substitute for the other more pricey sandalwood oil. It smells great and blends with so many different other oils. Great for CP soap making.
    Great for woody smelling soaps

    As the description says, this oil is not a substitute for true Sandalwood oil but its woody notes are similar to Sandalwood even if the warm and soft notes of true Sandalwood are absent. I'm going to try this oil blended with a small amount of Sandalwood oil plus Sandalwood powder in a cp soap and see how it turns out.
    Lots of fun!

    We use essentials for several things, but primarily the amyris is a hit with my boys as a choice for scent in their homemade lotion.
    Sweet Fixative...

    I've used this amyris essential oil to add it's own scent and properties, as well as a fixative in 2 batches of soap. It has worked out beautifully. It's sweet, and woody, quite a lovely addition, especially in my cedarwood,rosewood,patchouli,and cypress "deodorant" soap. I just love it! It smells so good, and it works well with everything! Thanks Camden Grey!
    Smells like sandalwood, but not exactly..

    Yeah it might not replace Sandalwood. BUT it most definitely can stand on it's own. And I'm in love with this oil! Love the smell. And definitely great benefits. Price is great as well. Look forward to using this in a lot more things! Thank you Camden Grey!
    High quality

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    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.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
