    This is Lime alright!
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This is a good Lime scent that does hold up in soap. Use with other citruses like Grapefruit. Has a good solid depth.
    Very invigorating and perfumed.

    This oil smells like green citrus, it is clean and sharp. It’s very invigorating and perfumed. It’s fresh, but still dense; not as light as other citrus. It is more on the acidic side of citrus zest that on the sweet one although you can still feel that velvety sweetness of lime. I love it, and like some others said, it’s really near to the real fruit.

    This smells exactly like a real lime. No fake, chemical smelling lime, just true lime. This is a great one to use for soapmaking - good on its own or blended with lavender or eucalyptus. It is sweet and refreshing and soaps with this essential oil in them always sell out very quickly.
    Great for CP soaps

    Citrus does not usually hold up in cp soap, but I have found that this essential oil does. It is great for a refreshing morning blend or with cypress for a men's product. Will buy again.
    Smell just like limes

    I like that this lime is crisp and fresh, like a real lime as opposed to some others I've tried which can be cloying and sweet. I use lime eo in aftershave and cp soap and am impressed with the quality of this oil. Oh, and it's affordable too. Bonus!
    Kids love this!

    This lime is fun and great to add for adults or children alike; therefore, you can't go wrong!
    Put the lime in the coconut

    Excellent Lime

    Great crisp Lime scent. It reminds me a lot of the hardy scent in the peeling of a lime. Yes citrus, but also the rough earthy smell that you get when you cut limes fresh. Use a little more than normal to get that scent to come out in CP soaps.

    i use this with a blend of other EO's to make a room spray. i use it when i need a mood lifter and energy boost when i'm on the treadmill. the smell is wonderful and fresh and sometimes i put four drops on a piece of cotton then throw it in the dryer with my clothes. give a fantastic scent to the clothes when they are dry. This is a true oily residue left behind on blotting paper.

    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.
