Delivery process

We despatch in-stock items within 1-2 working days* (sooner whenever possible) to UK postcodes. If your order contains larger quantities of a product (over 25 products) which requires manufacturing, it may delay despatch time by 1 day.

Depending on the value of your order, we will either send your parcel using Royal Mail’s 1st Class service or our 24-hour courier services (APC Overnight or Parcel Force).

*Whilst we cannot be held responsible for any delays to your order once the goods have left our premises, we will help you to trace your parcel wherever possible.

You will receive an e-mail from us with your invoice, the day we dispatch your order. Any telephone or web orders, whether placed on a weekend, or during a holiday period, will not be processed until the next working day.

Dangerous Goods Policy

Due to certain laws and regulations from the transportation authorities, some of the products we sell are classified as dangerous goods. These products include some of our essential oils, aromas, perfume concentrates and zinc oxide. For more information regarding as to why they are classified this way, please speak with our customer service team about requesting the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for each individual product.

Because of the laws and regulations being imposed when shipping, these products fall under strict rules regarding how they must be packaged and transported.

Due to these strict regulations that are imposed on packaging, especially for international orders, our international customers that have orders going via courier are going to be affected.  For some orders, an extra surcharge will need to be paid. The reason for this is that extra handling fees are incurred for shipping a parcel that contains what regulations consider to be dangerous goods. Any order that contains 500ml/g or greater of Essential Oils, Perfume Concentrates and/or Zinc Oxide, that are classified as dangerous goods, will incur this extra surcharge, which is currently £50 plus VAT where applicable for Rest of World and £16 plus VAT where applicable for EU.

There are also exceptions when certain amounts under 500ml/g will also receive a surcharge. We do our best to decant when possible to help avoid this surcharge but we have a limit to what we can do.

Please contact our customer service team if you have any questions or have placed an order that contains dangerous goods and will be going via courier.
