Shipping Info & Policies

LAST UPDATED: 10/4/2023

We ship only on Monday - Wednesday’s to try to avoid wax melting in the heat and in hot warehouses and delivery vehicles over the weekend.

Shipping In Warm Weather

Please use caution when ordering wax products in high heat temperatures. The coconut soy waxes I use melt at around 115-125 degrees F, and are used for all glass/concrete candles, tealights, and wax melt products. Pillars have a higher melting point at 133 degrees F since they are made of a paraffin soy blended wax, but may still melt if left outside or in hot weather. To help counteract some heat, boxes and envelopes come with thermal bubble wrap. Even though preventative measures are used, you are assuming the risk of products being damaged, ruined, or melted because of high heat temperatures in transit or at it’s delivery location. Our natural wax products WILL MELT if left outside or in sunlight. Because of these reasons, refunds are not given because of wax candles arriving melted.

Damaged/Lost Packages & Filing A Claim

We are not responsible for any lost or damaged goods that may arrive in a damaged state due to carrier mishandling. Items are packed extremely carefully on our end. If there are items missing from your package or it arrives opened please email us through our contact page within 24 hours of receiving your package. We are not able to fix your package if you email us after this time frame. If something arrives damaged, please read the next paragraph below. If something is marked as “delivered” but it is not delivered, we are not able to help you. After we deliver your package to the shipping provider they are in charge of handling your package and they will be responsible for undelivered items marked as "delivered" please contact the shipping provider provided with your tracking number.

To file a claim on a damaged package, fill out the form on the USPS website or UPS website. You must keep all original packaging and contents, provide photos/proof of the damage, and have the ability to go to your local post office after the claim has been processed if they require an in person review. There is no guaranteed refund even if you decide to file a claim. Each claim must be filed within a certain time period and include proof of insurance, value, and damage. Each mail service has a different time period for filing. If your item arrives damaged or with missing contents, you may file a claim immediately.

Please check tracking numbers often to ensure that you or a trusted individual will be at home/able to receive the package at the time of arrival. Leaving a package outside of your doorstep makes it susceptible to theft and damage, which we not responsible for.
