About

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

WE'RE BACK!! After an unplanned hiatus Akima Botanicals has moved to a new location and I have some exciting announcements:
I'm making several improvements to my products and operations, including transitioning to 100% vegan, naturally derived ingredients. No synthetic fragrances will be used in future products, which means I will be re-imagining my perfume line & product scents. In the meantime I will be selling off all my remaining product inventory at 15% off while supplies last. I thank you for your patience while I was planning my future, and I'm excited to share my fantastic NEW product line with you very soon.
~Akima

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 (though occasionally my boyfriend provides the muscles & companionship while vending).

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.

Thanks for reading my story, and I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

Welcome to Akima Botanicals!

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.

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
Processing times are 1-5 business days. I print shipping labels through Etsy, not PayPal, so please make sure the address you have on your 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.

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:

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.
