more. We suggest using UPS on all heavy boxes -(we can fit up to 6
slabs in a USPS flat rate box (nothing more can fit but the soap base) - this is a great option - if you choose
USPS First Class/Parcel Post - we will put your items in a flat rate -
it's faster, and cheaper). If your box is more than

shipping costs. All orders will have a $1.00 US$ handling fee – per
order, not per box.

is the most likely calendar month to expect shipping delays &
The worst months for
damage occurring during shipping/transit are November & December. As
the influx of packages shipped rises due to the Christmas parcels & gift giving,
the shippers (bless their hearts) are less likely to have the extra time to
take care of boxes like they do the rest of the year. During these months (November & December), take note to order supplies
well ahead of time needed. Shipping slows down considerably with
all carriers and it is a general rule of thumb
that you will NOT get your items in a timely manner. Expect heavy delays
around the Christmas Holiday Season and expect items not to be shipped as quickly as in the rest of the calendar year.
All orders are shipped in the order they've been received. We can not
"bump" orders ahead of others as this is not fair to those who
ordered ahead of time.
lost or damaged claims are to be handled by the carrier.
boxes which leave our shop are covered by carriers insurance policy. With

the company of a USPS, UPS or Canada Postal worker.
