What is the difference in essential oils and fragrance oils?

An essential oil is the concentrated oil that is derived from a plant. A fragrance oil is a mix of essential and synthetic (man made) oils. Our fragrance oils are manufactured for use in candles and soap and can give off fragrance that you just can't get with essential oils.

What does it mean when we say a fragrance is "Skin Safe"

First, all of our fragrances can be used in making candles, but some (most) can also be used in making soaps, lotions, and other bath products. We mark products on our site as skin safe if the IFRA statment says they can be used in bar soaps at 10% or above. We mark them as skin safe and put the % that can be used from 5-10% usage and anything below 5% we mark as not skin safe.

Can you hold my order?

We can hold any orders for pickup for up to 5 business days. Orders over 5 business days old will be restocked and subject to applicable service fees. Sale prices are also not valid on any orders not picked up within 5 business days. 

Do you accept returns?

We accept returns within 30 days of most products in unopened, unused, and resellable condition. For quaity control purposes we do not accept returns on fragrances, but we do offer a free 1oz bottle with every 8oz or larger fragrance bottle purchased for you to try new fragrances at not cost!
