    Excellent for arthritis blend
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This black pepper oil has that freshly ground pepper scent, yet not intrusive. The bottle it comes in has a reducer orifice to keep it from getting all over the place. A little goes a long way and though it could be irritating to the skin, I have not found this to be the case. It is one of the key ingredient in my arthritis blend.

    Every order I buy a few new oils, and this was one of them. I've been curious about it for a while. Very spicy, fresh ground pepper in liquid form but more. I've been needing another middle note for blends and this will suit nicely. I think it will add some spice qualities without being too familiar or reminisce of baked goods like some of the others. Yum.

    This oil is fun to add to different formulas. It adds an exotic touch. It is a little pricey but it very powerful. A little goes a long way. Will definitely buy again.

    This is my secret ingredient in many natural perfumes. This particular oil can add incredible pizzazz especially to other than deeply floral perfumes. A little bit goes a long way, and remember that it takes 2-3 weeks for this oil to develop its full potential in perfume blends!
    Love this oil!

    I ordered this oil as an adventure pic... And I am so glad that I did! I love it! It is woodsy & unique and blends so well with other essential oils. This black pepper oil is now a must have in my collection! I use it in my CP soaps and it is always a big hit!

    I love this woodsy peppery oil! It is wonderful as it states for muscle aches and pains. I spend a fair amount of time bent over hospital beds on 12 hour shifts and this oil has done wonders for my back when there is a need! Just love it!
    One of my favorites!

    I went through my last bottle pretty quick because I added some to everything. I make perfumes and I would be lost without this oil. It's quickly became one of my favorite essential oils, an the prices here on it are very reasonable. I would not have expected to like black pepper so much, but it blends so well with almost everything. It really adds a hint of maturity to any blend.

    Me and woodsy essential oil smells agree with me. I love the smell of this oil, not the smell I had in mind when I first learned about black pepper. Great for my scalp and skin. I used this one time for my grandfather, had a bad cold and besides other natural home remedies I tried that is good. I mixed this up with a few other essential oils and carrier oils, kept putting it on the bottom of his feet every nite, & put a sock on. And worked like a charm to rid the cold.

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.

    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.
