Default Trusted Essential Oil supplier

I was blessed to buy my eo's from CH-Imports in nearby Greensboro, NC for all the years I made body care products. Jack Bolini was a great teacher as well as trusted friend. Unfortunately he passed away, and now that I am going back into the marketplace, I don't know who to trust. Who do you trust unconditionally to sell you pure essential oils, undiluted. Liberty Natural Products is the only other one I have ever bought from, and they are 3000 miles away from me on the West Coast so I pay huge shipping fees. Your suggestions as to who you trust and buy from would be greatly appreciated. Is there anyone on the East Coast or near the East Coast? I am in the Raleigh, NC area.

I buy mine from Bulk Apothecary.

I believe everyone has at least one skill that they excel in over all others. It's something that defines who they are. What is it that defines you?

New Directions Aromatics or Liberty Naturals are reputable. New Directions does have a minimum purchase of 100.00.

I buy from WSP, BA, or Piping Rock. I just go with whomever has the best prices for what I am looking for.

Rocky Mountain Oils is good & you can look-up the GC/MS data for any oil purchased. Mountain Rose Herbs is also reputable.

You're much closer to Camden Grey than I am. I receive my EOs from them and they are pretty fast with the shipping. They are based in FL though so ordering now might be a bit of a wait.

I also really like Camden Grey. The have the best prices (outside of Soaper's Choice) on oils like avocado, castor etc. So I like the fact that I can get some eos and some oils, vs having to make an all EO order that's "big enough" to justify shipping.

For your location I would recommend the ChemistryStore.com in Cayce SC - outside of Columbia. They carry Lebermuth EOs and FOs. All of excellent quality and you can buy in small amounts. They do not have as large a selection as Lebermuth - based outside South Bend IN, but you don't have to buy in 1 lb minimums either

Default EO Supplier

Thanks so much for your replies. Lebermuth was the source for many of CH Imports eo's, and so I am really familiar with them - yes, they can be trusted for high quality. THANKS so much. Had forgotten that The Chemistry Store carried eo's. I used to order my NaOH and KOH from them. THANKS again!!
