Do we have a storefront?
We do not have a storefront. All of our products are available for purchase online. We are currently working with small businesses in the area to carry our products.
Can customers return product containers for a credit?
We do not take containers back. Please enjoy using them for other purposes, giving them to Goodwill, or recycling them. Be creative and have fun!
Why do we only use certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils when other oils are less expensive?
We only use CPTG essential oils because they are 100% pure, are responsibly sourced and thoroughly tested. In this country there is no governing body for the purity of essential oils. Therefore, a company can manufacture an essential oil as "pure" when there is only 5% pure compounds. That is why we use CPTG essentials oils.
are WE a large company?
No. The owners do everything! Suzy researches, ponders, researches again and creates the wonderful products, designs the labels, chooses the containers and shoots the photos. Suzy also maintains the website and updates to all of our social media. David handles all packaging and is the "shipping department"
Are our ingredients organic, natural, fair-trade and responsibly sourced?
Yes, to the best of our ability! We will never "cut corners" to save money.
how are our prices determined?
We calculate the price down to the cost of a single drop of essential oil. Each recipe is looked at separately.
Are products created and stored for future use?
No. Our products are created as they are ordered because it is important to Suzy to personalize each purchase.
What do we use for packaging?
We use glass, tin and cardboard, all of which are recyclable or reusable. We do not use plastic other than the BPA free caps for our glass bottles.
ARE OUR CANDLES AND SOY WAX MELTS NATURAL?
In order for us to create natural soy candles and wax melts, we had to be sure that the level of quality and care (our philosophy) could be applied to the art of making candles and soy wax melts. We have found a company that produces 100% phthalate-free (a carcinogen) fragrance oils for wax melts.
Our candles and wax melts are made with only natural soy wax with no added chemicals or paraffin. Because of this, our candles and wax melts are intended to provide a pleasantly subtle fragrance for your home, rather than an overpowering aroma.
Make you the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it. - Edward Bok, (1863-1930)
