SHIPPING: I am currently using Canada Post. Shipping takes anywhere from 7 - 10 days to arrive at their destination. However, because of COVID-19, shipments may take longer.

FEATHERS: I use feathers that are naturally molted and cruelty-free from bird rescue sanctuaries and friends. Because it takes a long time to collect enough feathers to make a smudge fan, I recommend you visit my shop from time to time, incase one of my Spirit-inspired works resonate with you.

WORKSHOPS: I offer Smudge Fan Making Workshops in Vancouver, Canada. If you are interested in being on my email list to be notified of upcoming workshops, please message me.

TIPS & ADVICES: Please understand that it is difficult to explain my process in written format - which is why I offer in-person workshops in Vancouver. I do not dispense guidance, tips, advice or tutorials through emails/messages. It is difficult to communicate the process without being there, beside you. Also, creating these smudge fans are not a “hobby”. It is a serious spiritual practice for me to connect and channel spiritual healing tools from the Spirit World. These healing tools then go into hands of other healers to spread Light. Therefore I do not casually give advice or guidance because it will be disrespectful to this spiritually creative path, and there is more to this work than what you see. Please also note that while I’m doing self-work on connecting more strongly to the Spirit realm, I am not offering apprenticeship or creative mentoring at this time.

PRICES: The cost of the feathers, time and resources to physically clean them and to spiritually heal them are included in the price. Also, the majority of my feather sources are American, which costs more in Canadian dollars - plus the border customs fee is high because I do bulk purchases from rescue sanctuaries. Therefore, I do NOT give discounts or negotiate prices down because it is Spirit work. There are many other costs such as high quality plant medicines to microdose on, medicine ceremonies, and Psychedelic Integration Therapists I hire, in order to grow as an artistic channel and receive smudge fan inspirations from Spirit. Please understand that this is not a "hobby" for me, and I take this work of channeling Spirit-inspired healing tools seriously. More details of the effort that goes into each smudge fan is in my shop profile and also described in the listing.

CUSTOM ORDERS: Because my healing practice is keeping me busy, I am not taking custom orders at this time.

LAYAWAYS AND HOLDS: I do NOT do layaways or hold items. I prefer these spiritual tools to "flow" to their spiritual guardians.

About TheSecretWoods

Working with Spirit

From a child, I have been extremely creative, and also sensitive to invisible energies around people, objects, animals and plants. Now as an adult working as a Psychic Medium and Reiki Master, I communicate with my Spirit Guides on their guidance and inspiration when creating a smudging fan.

Every material used in creating a smudging fan has made its way to me. Whether it is a walk along a riverbed where clean branches appear in front of me, or a feather found while walking in the woods. Sometimes, materials come to me through friends who pass along something they’ve found, or I’m lead to objects in an art store by my Spirit Guides. I never know how a smudging fan would turn out in the end; I simply trust the creative flow and let the magic happen.

After completing each smudging fan, I take them through a blessing ceremony where I burn sage to clear the energy. I then burn sweetgrass to infuse it with abundance for the new owner. Reiki (a Japanese healing modality) is then applied to seal the energy that has been put into the fan.

Returns and exchange details
NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS.

Because this is a spiritual tool, once you have purchased it and it leaves my hands for delivery, it cannot be returned. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, I simply ask you to give the smudge fan to the best person to inherit it. I also ask that the person who inherits it will take a good care of the smudge fan, and respects it and uses it for lightwork.

Also, it is your responsibility to double-check that you have entered the correct mailing address on Etsy. I cannot be responsible for packages sent to the wrong address, as I use the one given to me in the order. I do NOT give returns or refunds, so please triple-check your address. I also do NOT resend packages if it got returned to me.
Payment
I accept most forms of payment.
Delivery
I use Canada Post for my orders. In the event Canada Post has a labour dispute and a strike / lockout ensues, I will be using UPS. Which unfortunately means shipping costs will be significantly higher. Read my shop Announcement if you need to know if I'm using UPS or Canada Post.

A tracking number is provided so both of us can track the shipment and ensure direct delivery to the recipient.

Canadian and US orders generally take 7 - 12 days for delivery.
