Akima Botanicals is all about blending nature with a pinch of magick, to create high quality, eco-friendly bath & body products and skin luxuries. I use all natural, organic, fair trade, responsibly wild-harvested botanicals and/or other ingredients like natural butters and oils. Every ingredient is top quality, free from parabens, pthalates, artificial colorants & chemical preservatives. Green manufacturing & operations are always practiced; I pledge to reuse, reduce, recycle, and sustain as much as possible. All of the containers are recyclable and reusable. All labels are printed on paper made of 50-100% post-consumer waste. None of my products or the ingredients I use to create them ever tested on animals! I purchase all of my supplies from USA wholesalers and small indie businesses around the world (i.e. Etsy Craft Supply sellers!) I'm proud to offer my products to folks all over this great Earth.

Bulk orders are always welcomed - message me for information. Unfortunately I am unable to create custom fragrances or products at the present time.

AkimaBotanicals' Shop Policies

Welcome

Welcome to Akima Botanicals!

I'LL BE AWAY VENDING 2/19-2/22 - ORDERS PLACED THESE DAYS WILL BEGIN TO PROCESS ON 2/23

I strive to use organic, fair trade, responsibly wild-harvested botanicals and other ingredients free from parabens, pthalates, artifical dyes and preservatives. When I use fragrance oils, I carefully select only the most premium quality oils tested for purity and safety. I practice green manufacturing and operations, pledging to reuse, reduce, recycle, and sustain. I will never purchase ingredients that are tested on animals, nor do I ever test products on animals. I do not use alcohol in my perfume products because it dries the skin.

I use beeswax in many of my lip balm and salves. Bees create their wax in their naturally in the wild, it's what the hive is made from. However out of respect for our vegan friends I am happy to offer soy or candelilla wax alternatives.

Please read my Policies before placing your order: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AkimaBotanicals/policy?ref=shopinfo_policies_leftnav

Payment

I accept PayPal, Direct Checkout, and Money Orders (must be exact amount). I do not accept checks or cash. All mailed payments are due within 5 business days - unless we discuss otherwise I will cancel the sale if payment is not received within this time frame.

Shipping

I'LL BE AWAY VENDING 2/19-2/22 - ORDERS PLACED THESE DAYS WILL BEGIN TO PROCESS ON 2/23. Processing times are now 1-5 business days until after the holidays. I ship directly from Etsy, not PayPal, so please make sure the address you have on file is correct. If you'd like me to ship to a different address (i.e. as a gift) it's no problem, just tell me the shipping address in the Notes to Seller section. If you forget, just shoot me a convo.

USA orders ship via USPS First Class (unless otherwise specified in the listing). I always offer combined shipping discounts. Delivery confirmation is FREE with all orders to the USA.

International orders ship via USPS International First Class. The customs label will state an accurate description and exact price of the products ordered, and will be shipped as "Merchandise" - no exceptions! **Note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. You can calculate any customs/duty fees here: http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/ ** Please also know that shipping internationally, depending on distance & customs laws, can increase delivery time up to 4 weeks.

Delivery confirmation is now included with international shipments to 14 countries (Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland) for First Class International and select Priority Mail International shipments. If you live in a country not listed I will include insurance. NOTE: Some countries restrict the import of bath & body, cosmetic, toilet, and beauty products. You may view your countries restrictions here: http://pe.usps.com/text/imm/immctry.htm or simply convo me if you are unsure. Please do not make your purchase until your country’s import restrictions are verified - if an item is bought and restricted to import I will have to cancel the sale & refund in full. (Examples of countries I cannot ship to include, but are not limited to, Mexico & Italy.)

Any orders exceeding First Class weight limits will be upgraded to Priority Mail at no additional charge. Shipping time & cost on bulk or custom orders will be discussed through our correspondences.

Refunds and Exchanges

I value my customers and strive for 100% satisfaction! Due to their nature, any opened or used products are non-returnable. Items may be EXCHANGED ONLY if the shrink wrap is unbroken and the item is in the same, resalable condition - buyer is responsible for shipping fees both ways and any cost difference. I will refund or exchange items that have been grossly misrepresented or order mistakes on my end (i.e. I send you the wrong item). The following is my policy in the RARE event I make an mistake on your order:
- Notify me within 48 hours of receipt of item if there is a mistake.
- I will not charge extra shipping for returned/exchanged orders due to my mistake, and will reimburse you for your shipping costs to send it back, if necessary (I may ask for a copy of your postage receipt if it is not on the package.) In lieu of postage reimbursement you may also choose an item from my store of equal or greater value (paying the difference if necessary).
- I must receive the item(s) back unused and unopened with shrink wrap in tact before I can issue a refund or exchange - subject to approval of the policies above.

I am not responsible for packages broken or lost by the mail carrier, or stolen from the mail after delivered per USPS tracking. If this is the case please contact me ASAP and I will do all I can to assist you in finding/replacing/filing a claim for your order. International orders cannot be tracked once they leave the USA (exceptions listed in Shipping Policies). If an international order with insurance is lost or stolen in the mail a claim must be filed to receive the value of the item. Please contact me within 5 business days of delivery date and I will be happy to assist with filing a domestic or international postal insurance claim.

If you have any questions about refunds/exchanges that are not answered here, please feel free to send a convo.

Additional Policies and FAQs

I am more than happy to accept bulk order requests, but cannot guarantee acceptance of all requests. Additional processing time may apply. Unfortunately at the moment I am unable to create custom fragrances or products. Send a convo for more info.

Your satisfaction is my number one priority! If you are unsatisfied with a product or purchase, please first contact me directly by convo or email. I will do everything in my power to correct the situation to your satisfaction.
