Terms & Conditions


Please note - we have not registered any of our products in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods ( ARTG) and therefore they do not meet the definition of a "therapeutic good". Any implicit or explicit inference that any of our products is a "therapeutic good" is unintentional and we would appreciate your bringing it to our attention if you note it on our web site.

If once you have placed an order you decide you need more items then please simply place another order and place in the comments section . please marry up with order number eg 12345.  Please do not phone or email for additional items to be added; there is a risk of the additions not being applied properly, and disappointment will result.

    • Please do not accept parcels that are squashed or holed or bear any signs of damage unless such damage is recorded on the delivery docket, and ensure you take a photo of the package(s). Please call us immediately if there is any damage to the shipped goods.
    • When we despatch your order we will email you the tracking details. You can log in to either the Australia Post site or the Couriers please site and follow your parcel from Noosaville to your location. Both the Courier and the Post reserve the right to charge a redelivery fee if they are unable to deliver the parcel to you. The circumstances vary on when the threshold for a redelivery fee is reached - for example the courier may attempt delivery, leave a card for you if it cannot be delivered, and after two days may despatch the parcel back to us. We will need to charge you a redelivery fee to have it re-sent.  if Australia Post returns it to us then an automatic return to sender fee of $10.00 is charged to us. then there would be a redelivery fee to send it back to you.
    • Please advise us of the arrangements you would like to make if you are not likely to be at the delivery address during the working day eg, an Authority To Leave (ATL)  if no one is home and there is a safe place to leave it.
    • Insurance - if there is any damage or breakage then firstly you need to send us a photo so we can assess how we will approach the insurance claim. This is an essential first step in rectifying the problem.

     Quality Control

    • We stand by the quality of our products, which we provide as “industry standard”.  Even so we cannot provide any form of guarantee for the physico-chemical composition of fragrant or essential oils because we cannot accept liability for their 

    Labelling

    • Our Labels are fairly simple and generally contain the product name, country (ies) of origin/extraction.  Additional details that are usually included - Botanical name if applicable, part of the botanical used, CAS number, and any other instructions that we consider useful e.g. usage rate.   Country of origin/extraction sometimes changes from batch to batch and our labelling might not keep up with the changes so if the country of origin/extraction is different and it causes you concern then please let us know.

     Essential oils 

    • We are unable to make any claims about the medical or therapeutic benefits of our essential oils. Such claims should only be made by qualified medical specialists.

     Bottles, jars, containers and closures.

    • We are unable to accept responsibility for compatibility or otherwise of any containers. We recommend testing before containers are used.
