ORDER CHANGES & CANCELLATIONS
Once your order is submitted, it is final, and we don't allow changes or cancellations.
RETURNS & EXCHANGES
Due to the nature of our natural products, they can't be restocked or resold when returned. For these hygiene & sanitation reasons, we don't accept returns or exchanges.
HOWEVER, if you are unhappy for any reason (other than melted/frozen items, shipping damage, or theft **addressed below**), please let us know, & we will work with you. We want our customers to have a positive experience, & we're grateful for positive reviews!

Orders generally ship within 2-4 business days (not including weekends & holidays). Sometimes it may take longer due to sales, holidays, re-stocks, or custom orders, but we get them out as quickly as we can. Transit times vary according to your location & the shipping company itself.
Most of our shipments include $100 of insurance, but because we are not responsible for shipping issues like damage, loss, or theft, we HIGHLY recommend that you purchase "Guide Shipping Protection Insurance" offered at checkout as a backup, just in case the shipping carrier doesn't compensate you for some reason.
It's VERY affordable, and it ensures, that if your product is lost, damaged, or stolen during shipping, it will be replaced. Products are in pristine condition & packaged securely when they leave our facility, so any damage or loss that occurs would be due to shipping carriers, not us.
If you choose NOT to purchase Guide Shipping Protection, you will need to contact the shipping carrier to ask them about any compensation options they may offer.
In the case of product melting or freezing (which can happen in extreme weather temperatures), please see our other information/FAQ pages for instructions.
While our products are not "certified" organic, we do purchase our ingredients from a variety of certified organic, non-GMO, sustainable, & humane suppliers locally, & from around the world. We also purchase from small, family owned companies, whenever possible, & while not all of our ingredients are 100% organic, we try hard to purchase from companies who use organic practices.
In 2020 we transitioned to glass jars for most of our products. Glass jars are healthier, and they can refilled or re-purposed & re-used for many other purposes, which we highly encourage you to do! If & when we do use plastic packaging, we work hard to find ones that are food grade & recycled.
WHAT ABOUT MELTING?
If the season is hot when you order, consider putting product in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes before opening. Some items (toothpaste, deodorant, body butter, etc.), may need to be stirred back up before using.
If your product deflates, it will look as if there is less in the container, but there's not. Deflation happens when it melts, because we whip some of our products, which creates tiny air bubbles that give volume & make it soft & fluffy.
If the season is cold when you order, let your product sit in a warmer room to soften up a bit, before using. Don't let it get too warm though. You don't want it to melt. Optimal indoor temperature for most of our products us 68-75 degrees.
DO YOUR PRODUCTS HEAL?
While many of our clients have reported improved conditions in their skin, hair, etc., after using our products - due to FDA regulations, we make NO claims of this being due to the use of our products.
Often times when people switch from toxic chemically laden products to pure, earth-based non-toxic products, health automatically improves.
While we are aware that the ingredients we use have been historically, scientifically, and experientially deemed as possessing healthful qualities & benefits, we make no such health claims about our products.
They are for cosmetic use only & may result in "appearances" of change or improvement, but we do not claim actual structural change or healing.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE?
Our products are made with healthy, non-toxic ingredients. However, we are not responsible for adverse reactions someone may experience. Ingredients are all listed on the website, as well as on product labels/packaging/inserts. Please check each time you order, as we continually work to improve our formulations & occasionally make small changes.
If you are sensitive to any ingredients listed, or if you are pregnant, nursing, or have any medical conditions, please talk with your health care provider before purchasing.
