I have been ordering from Essential Depot for 5 years now. They have great prices overall, great products and always have some kind of deal that is totally worth it, esp if you are a small business owner like myself. They even have a green life plan where you pay $5 a month you will get even better deals or even free stuff. I have received multiple free soap racks that are normally quite pricey for free for being a green life club member. The $5 a month membership is totally worth it. I also get much bigger discounts for being a member. If you live far away from them the shipping is a bit pricey, so sometimes I do go to other suppliers I use based on shipping. Over all, I am happy with all of my transactions I have had with Essential Depot.


I have been buying from Bulk Natural Oils (Jedwards International) for 5 years now for my growing business. After my repeated bad experiences with Bulk Apothecary I just want to give credit where credit is due. Bulk Natural Oils have always delivered and have always delivered excellent products. I order from them monthly and have only had 1 issue that was very quickly resolved with management. Not only was it quickly resolved I even had a follow up email and phone call from management to make sure everything was okay. I cannot say enough good things about this company. The only thing that is tough is shipping is very expensive. I live in CA and they are in MA, so shipping is A LOT. I understand I buy things that are 50lbs and more so it's going to be a bit pricey. They do make up for it for having competitive prices with their products compared to other companies. I can always rely on Bulk Natural Oils for keeping up with my stock and getting it in a timely fashion. I highly recommend this company for your new and growing business. They have never disappointed me.


I have been ordering my bulk supplies from Bulk Apothecary since 2014. I'm not sure what happened in the last year and a half but they have seriously gone downhill. I'll buy something that says it is in stock and when I get my shipment expecting everything the invoice will say "Backordered". At this point it is a little too late as I am expecting these items for my business that has drastically picked up. I have even ordered a head of time to stay ahead of supplies.

I have also purchased many things that all of a sudden change with the way it looks. Mind you I have been purchasing these same items for 5 years now. So, the quality of items have also gone down drastically. If something is out of stock that is fine. I have other supply companies I use that carry the same things. I just need to know it is out of stock so I can plan accordingly. The only thing this affects is my business now. Whenever I have had a discrepancy with a "backordered" item, they always have an excuse and it's usually a BS excuse to shut me up. I know better than that and I also don't appreciate being treated like an idiot. What would be appreciated is if something is ordered and it is out of stock without the customer knowing they really need to reach out to the customer and let them know immediately so we can plan around this. It seems like as long as they get the money for something we the customers have to suck it up and wait until it becomes back in stock.

Buyer beware. Always have a back up plan if you order your supplies from Bulk Apothecary. Jedwards International and Bramble Berry are amazing. I have never had an issue with these companies before. Their customer service is also amazing
