    Sold by weight. Horsetail (Equisetum arvense)is the last remaining descendant of the giant ferns that covered the earth over 400 million years ago. The plant has an unusual root, shoot and stem system that enables it to absorb and store silicon and other minerals. A typical Horsetail plant can contain up to 15 percent vegetal silica. This bio-available silica, when applied topically, can greatly aid in the healing of wounds and burns and has a softening and smoothing effect on the skin.

    Mineral-rich Horsetail contains the building blocks needed for collagen and elastin synthesis and the silicon present will link any collagen produced, thus greatly enhancing the rebuilding of connective tissues in the epidermis. Horsetail also contains flavonoids and saponins which help rebuild and regenerate skin cells.

    Horsetail butter was developed for cosmetic use. It is actually an extract of Equisetum arvense using a proprietary butter base which produces a smooth, velvety butter at room temperature. Horsetail Butter may be used for cutaneous dryness to assist in moisturization after exposure to sun and other harsh elements. It is completely oil miscible and contains no preservatives or coloring agents. Completely natural! Suggested uses: Creams, lotions, body and lip balms, bar soaps. Use from 3% to 100%.

    Appearance: Soft, semi-solid fat. Its color could range from ivory to light green to a slightly darker green. Odor: Herbal, grass like. As with all natural products, there cannot be any consistency regarding odor, consistency and color. SAP value: 175-200. Shelf life: 1 yr. when tightly sealed and kept in a cool place away from direct light and heat. INCI = Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Equisetum arvense extract (and) hydrogenated non-gmo soybean oil.

    Really smooth, absorbs well

    I wasn't sure about this one, so I ordered a sample first--it worked well all by itself as a healing lip balm and it seemed to have very nice properties to use in a face cream so I ordered a pound of it and got started. I've made a luxurious face cream with this butter in place of shea. It's just lovely. I use this butter by itself as an eyelid moisturizer at night. It's not too heavy (although probably is for daytime use and definitely would make your makeup run if you had it on under/before mascara). It's a rich, soothing, healing butter. This one is a keeper.
    I LOVE this butter!

    This was my first time ever ordering horsetail butter, and I'm hooked. It's smooth, creamy, and feels moisturizing! I've used it in hair moisturizer, body butter, and plan to use it in a new lip balm recipe. I only bought 4 oz to try but now I wish had bought more.
    Amazing Butter

    This butter goes a long way & glides onto the skin. I purchased it as it is supposed to help with edema. Not only did it help with this, it helped my parents neuropathy pain when they put it on their feet before bed time. Amazing stuff!
    Great butter

    This butter is so soft and has a very distinct smell. It mixes very nice with coconut oil and was very moisturizing for my hair!

    My grandson gets dried, cracked knuckles in the winter months and we've tried several remedies with so-so results. We put horsetail butter on one of his hands and another butter on the other. We love the results of the use of the horsetail butter. I will purchase it again!

    I have a 17 year old son who hates anything that smells "pretty" and keeps his skin "oily". Well after noticing his hands and feet had started to get pretty rough during football season I began using this (got it on sale). So far it's going great! He loves the scent, there is barely one present and I apply it before he goes to bed and when he wakes up his rough hands and feet are smooth and soft! This is a keeper!!!
    Light, creamy and wonderful

    I originally bought the Horsetail Butter for a mix for my hair but, after re-reading the info on the site I decided to test it on a few spots on my leg where I have gotten some spider veins. I only used it on one leg--sort of like a "control group: to see if the veins in that leg did better than the one without the butter application. I must say that after a week plus that the leg I am using the butter on seems to be responding with the veins beginning slightly to recede! I plan on continuing use until they are-hopefully- gone. The butter itself is light and creamy----wonderful texture, and, the scent is extremely light and not at all intrusive so that I can add it to other mixes without it overpowering any scent I might add. It mixes quite well with oil and also the honey that I use to cleanse my face. A keeper!!!

    I ordered this when I saw that it was good for the skin and for wounds. I have a wound that is slow (ha! never) healing and I wanted to try it. It immediately made a difference~it penetrated and moistened the skin better, but when I added a bit of Manuka and Tamanu, WOW! It's not gone, but the improvement is huge and now my Doctor thinks I'm cheating on him with another Doctor! I will never be without my Horsetail Butter again!

    This butter is "The Best", it's nourishing, moisturizing, inexpensive and most importantly, EFFECTIVE!!! It's the most precious butter within my butter stash, so, I use/treat it sparingly as a precious jewel, a little goes a long way nonetheless though. I don't share this butter with anyone and will always make sure to have some; I implore of you please to continue to carry this item, I adore it immensely!!!

    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.
