Shipping and Return Policy

ORDERING & SHIPPING INFORMATION

 

We use the U.S. Postal Service for the bulk of our shipping.  Orders are usually processed and shipped within 1-4 business days, and are usually delivered in an additional 1- 5 business days.  Immediately after you place your order, you will be emailed a confirmation of your order.  Once your package is shipped, you will receive an additional email.  Please allow for both processing time and shipping time of your order.   All of our orders are shipped in neutral packaging.   We respect and protect your privacy.  We reserve the right to decline any order.

We are an environmentally-friendly company.   We reuse first, then recycle whenever possible.  We reuse all packing materials...even the ones that aren't so great for the environment.  Better to keep reusing them then to throw them away.  Reduce.  Reuse.  Recycle.   Any paper containing personal or financial information is cross-shredded, and then becomes mulch for our herb gardens.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS 
Due to processing costs, our minimum order for our International Customers is $25, exclusive of shipping costs. 
There will be an additional charge for shipping (in addition to the standard shipping charge) added to your order in our office.  This charge will not appear on your shopping cart or order confirmation.  We will email you the cost once we weight your package and determine what those additional costs are.

International orders are usually shipped by Global Priority Mail, with a 4-6 day delivery time.  The charges in additional to our standard shipping charges will be emailed to you.   We reserve the right to charge additional fees for odd sized or heavy items.  We reserve the right to decline any international order. We DO NOT ship to Indonesia, Brazil, or Nigeria.

Payment accepted in U.S. funds only.  If paying by credit card, the conversion of funds is automatic.

Please keep in mind that there is no way for us to insure, nor guarantee delivery once a package leaves the United States.  We also have no control over whether customs will delay your shipment, and if so for how long.   You may be charged an import duty or tariff on your purchase.  You are completely responsible for any customs duties or tariffs.  This varies from country to country.  Check with your local customs office for details.
