I got couple bottles of the oil so it wouldn't be complete if I didn't get this as well. Beautiful scent, great quality, friendly service, fast shipping! :)

About

Akima Botanicals - Eco-Friendly Bath & Body from Mother Earth

Akima Botanicals offers natural, effective skin care and household products, inspired by nature and the philosophy of mindful living.

~100% vegan, cruelty free, and responsibly sourced natural ingredients
~No parabens, phthalates, SLS, preservatives, artificial colors or fragrances
~Eco-friendly packaging
~Handcrafted in small batches
~When available I prefer to purchase items for my business from other small businesses, as local as possible.

Akima Aromas blends natural and man-made notes to create complex fragrances reminiscent of the old and new world around us. (Also free from phthalates or parabens).

I started Akima Botanicals when I turned thirty. I'd always known I was meant to be self-employed, but couldn't quite figure out what to do and how to do it. After about a years research I got together my LLC, liability insurance, and such and went full steam ahead! As a child I was always the mad scientist, concocting various creations in our NJ Pine Barrens kitchen. Creating beautiful perfumes and skin care felt natural to me, so I took my love of all natural, eco-friendly, handmade items and combined it with my hobby of making bath & body products for friends & family, and Akima Botanicals was born. I handcraft everything from product to label, and run every aspect of my business myself.

Where does Akima come from? Simple really - when I had more time I was a bellydancer, a regular at many area restaurants, haflas, and various gigs & festivals. Akima was my stage name.

I use eco-friendly, organic, fair trade, responsibly wild-harvested botanicals and ingredients free from parabens, phthalates, artificial dyes and preservatives. When fragrance oils are used, I carefully select only the most premium quality oils tested for purity and safety, also free from parabens, phthalates, and chemical preservatives. Green manufacturing and operations are always practiced; I pledge to reuse, reduce, recycle, and sustain as much as possible! All containers are recyclable, and all products & ingredients are eco-friendly and cruelty free.

I'm a sucker for all things vintage, so my table/display set up at farmers markets and craft fairs if chock full of fantastic thrift store and flea market finds. I tend to favor vintage kitchen and serving items, and like the look of different style pieces coming together so aesthetically well.

Processing times are 1-3 business days. It is the buyers responsibility to make sure their shipping address on their Etsy account 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.
Shipping time & cost on bulk or custom orders will be discussed through our correspondences. If you do not receive your order first check your tracking number for USPS status, then contact me if there are any issues or delays.

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.
