The holidays are fast approaching, but your holiday shopping doesn't have to be stressful.  Aside from our organic, skin-soothing gift temptations that anyone would appreciate, we can also reduce your workload by shipping directly to the lucky recipient!  To help you get your gifts on time, we've compiled a schedule of expected shipping transit times for packages shipped by UPS and the US Postal Service (USPS).  And for the personal touch, we are always happy to include a hand-written gift card with your message, for no extra charge--just type in your message during checkout and we'll do the rest!

2023 HOLIDAY HOURS/CLOSURES: So that we may enjoy time with our families, and for year-end inventory, we will be observing the following holiday closures:

  • Thanksgiving:  We will be CLOSED from Wednesday, November 22, 2023 through Sunday, November 26, 2023 for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Regular business hours will resume on Monday, November 27 and all orders received during closure will be processed in the order received upon our return.

  • Christmas:  We will be CLOSED from Tuesday, December 20 through Tuesday, December 26, 2022 for the Christmas Holiday.  LIMITED business hours will resume on Wednesday, December 29, and all orders received during closure will be processed in the order received upon our return.

Stress-Reducing Holiday Ordering Tips: 

  • It is highly recommended that you place your orders as early as possible, to allow enough time for processing and delivery.  Remember, inclement weather or other acts of nature nullify any delivery guarantees by the US Postal Service or UPS. More shoppers than ever are ordering online, and the shortage of labor to process and ship is expected to cause delays. While we will be doing everything in our power to process and ship your orders as quickly as humanly possible, we cannot be responsible for package transit times or delays. 

  • During the holiday season, the possibility of THEFT is highly increased--it is best to have packages delivered to your WORKPLACE or with a neighbor if no one will be home to receive packages during the day. 

  • We may, at our discretion, require delivery signature for some orders and there will need to be someone available to receive and sign for those packages.

  • Always carefully unpack your order as soon as possible in order to report possible damage during shipment, so that replacement arrangements can be made.

  • Be sure to order a little extra something so that you can give yourself a bit of much needed organic herbal pampering to recover from the hustle and bustle. :) 

As always, if you have any questions about your order, or if we can assist you with choosing just the right item for all the people on your shopping list, please feel free to contact us through our web contact form, or email at [email protected]
