    Smells Yummy

    I have to admit that out of the bottle this oils stinks. HOWEVER, when you blend it with some lemongrass, grapefruit, lemon or lime essential oils, it becomes suddenly wonderful. You must use a very small amount though, as it is quite strong. I keep coming back to ginger blends for my soaps and aromatherapy diffuser recipes and I love this oil. Give it a chance - don't trust how it smells out of the bottle.
    woody, bass notes

    This is a good eo mixed with something else, but on it's own, it smells much like dried mushrooms (sort of like dried portebello--a strong, old wood smell, a bit musty). I ordered a plumeria sample, which I found too sweet/strong. A drop of ginger in it mellowed it and gave it more bottom notes, improving both smells greatly. Mind you, nothing I've mixed it with has made it smell like fresh cut ginger, but a drop or two mixed with mandarin red gave the mandarin red a sweeter smell in a liquid hand soap that I made (not cold process, a SLS soap). All in all, I prefer clary sage for mixing with citrus. The clary tends to enhance the citrus and make it "stick" while the ginger gives it a bit of spice smell. This is high quality and strong. I will generally be mixing it into other things for cold process soap, but haven't tried it there yet. I also make shampoo and hand soaps and scents hold very well in small doses in those products.
    Strong and unique.

    This ginger oil is very unique. Be aware that it really doesn’t smell like fresh ginger. It has a very strong smell of humid soil and musty roots. This is far from subtle. I bought this for perfume making and I will use it very sparingly in my compositions, maybe to bring some “dirty” effect. For me it smells like mud – not fresh one but rather warm and sultry mud.
    Strong, spicy, stinky

    Not the most delicate oil, but has great inflammatory properties. Be careful when blending, as it is rather strong.
    Warm and Spicy....Perfect

    This ginger EO is perfect for a warming massage blend. When diffused with lime EO, we find it brings a calm, uplifting vibe to the house...if that makes sense! A little is all that is needed.

    I bought this primarily for cooking but also for some aromatherapy recipes I want to try. It will open up to a nice fresh ginger smell once diluted, but smells so pungent, full strength, it is almost garlicky. Amazing for cooking, blend with sesame oil.
    Nice in spicy blends

    This oil is strong and it doesn't take much to spice up a fragrance. I use it with orange scents or in combination with cinnamon and clove scents also. Just a hint of it will add a bit of lasting power to perfume blends. Great product!
    Highest Quality, and the Best Price!

    My daughter and I both love, love, love this ginger essential oil! It's very strong, as others have mentioned, and it goes a very long way. We made a blend using 1 part ginger, 1 part basil, 2 parts fennel, 4 parts grapefruit, and 6 parts lemon, and added it to sunflower oil for a really nice summery oil for massage, and for our cellulite. The ginger shines through beautifully. Not sure our legs look better, but they sure do smell good! I am looking forward to soaping it. It's so nice when you can use such a small amount. On the fence? Go for it! You'll be glad you did. =)

    Ginger fan over here! Definitely have to be careful with this oil. A little goes a looong way!! If use too much the smell is quite strong. Gave me a headache. But the benefits is GREAT! Great for PMS. Definitely did wonders for my scalp and hair. Skin as well. Love this oil. Look forward to experimenting this with other things. Thank you Camden Grey!

    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.
