    wonderful scent
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★
    Maria Schneider (Cedar Park, TX, US) | December 19th, 2017
    This is an awesome scent! Probably best used in lotions or shampoos. It leans towards a male scent, but is elusive enough to be used in lotions or shampoos or soaps for women. It does not stick particularly well in soap--I had to round it out a bit with other scents to get it stickier--or, preferably use more than standard in cold or hot process soap (there is nothing that smells as good as just the spruce. I tried mixing it with cypress, bergomot (this was a nice mix) and orange. They are all fine--but...that spruce scent is just so lovely by itself. Plan on using double normal amount of EO and/or just use this in a lotion. It's beautiful. Simply beautiful.
    Much better than I expected

    I ordered this oil because I tend to like tree oils and I was curious about it. I had no idea it would be so powerful and smell so good. I use one drop in my bath water and the aroma is intense. I read that Spruce helps the individual manage their physical energy by helping to listen to the body's rhythms and needs. I use many different essential oils and it seems like they all help the body to heal or regulate itself at a higher level. I'm glad I found the C-G Spruce because it's another amazing oil in my arsenal for health and well-being.
    finally a true evergreen scent

    After trying many different kinds of spruce and fir oils, I have finally found my favorite in this one. It brings home the real smell of the forest with its concomitant effect of calming and uplifting properties. A true evergreen in a bottle!

    This is just what you would expect spruce oil to smell like-woody, crisp and clean. I used it in a wood blend in cp soap and had no problems at all. Smells great.
    Customers love this!

    I looked for the "right" evergreen scent for quite a while and this one is perfect. Customers love it in CP soap and we've had requests for it in lotion. They say it smells like Christmas!
    Smells like Christmas

    Smells like Christmas Wreaths I put on my door. Compared to other woodsy or piney scents, its slightly sweeter and definitely one of the stronger ones. Best for Christmas or mixes.

    I was surprised at how great this smelled. I needed a pine scent for my CP soap recipe, but I tried this spruce EO and it smells wonderful. I closed my eyes when I inhaled and saw myself on a Christmas carriage ride searching for the yule log! It was a big success in the soap and I will definitely continue purchasing in the future!

    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.
