Handmade products celebrating herbs, a natural lifestyle, and good karma.
Help me, please!!! I can't stop making things!!!
I love figuring out how to make beautiful things. I wake in the middle of the night with another idea drumming in my brain.
I need homes for these things to make room for new things!
i get such joy from making/finding/scavenging raw materials but there is only so much time in space in one lifetime.
I look forward to your assistance!
Fox Ryde Gardens has been selling natural handmade herbal bath and body care products since 1994. We have mostly sold at Farmers Markets and in the SCA. We are expanding to Etsy to make our items easier to purchase for our customers.
We grow and wildcraft many of the herbs we use to make our products. Each of them have been tested for several years before being offered for sale. By now, the products have been in the hands of happy customers for well over 15 years.
We don't change the formulation or scents very often. We know that when you find something you love, you want to be able to order it for years.
We have started to make available our other passions - naturally dyed yarns and fiber related recycled copper jewelry.
Again, we grow or gather the natural dyestuffs used to color our yarns, as much as possible. You will see a note that lets you know where the color came from. Many other natural dyers use extracts. We choose to not do this. We know that some dyestuffs are endangered or come from war-torn locations. We choose to use colors that are good karma as well as beautiful.
Finally, our copper is from recycled sources. We buy it from the recycling centers here locally. We craft our jewelry in our strawbale studio. We recycle everything we possible can.
We pay for carbon offsets for all the shipping we do. It's just one more way we try to be responsible and small carbon footprint.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
We require full payment prior to shipping. Payment includes cost of the item, shipping, and insurance.
We can ship UPS or USPS. If you don't let us know what you would like, we will most likely use UPS. Depends on what you order and what kind of week it is. :-)
International and outside the continental United States will incur extra shipping charges, if necessary.
UPS shipping includes insurance up to $100 loss. If you wish to ship USPS, we will insure it and charge you for that. We prefer to ship our products insured. If you do not wish to pay for insurance, please let us know. We will not be responsible for in-shipping loss if you chose to do this. (We have not lost a box yet, but we continue to be cautious!)
We use recycled packing as much as possible. We check it carefully to make sure it is in good condition before re-using. If boxes are not good enough, we recycle them.
We sometimes use packing peanuts we purchase from a local supplier. Please recycle or re-use them. Don't discard them.
We purchase carbon offsets for all the shipping we do. We love our earth and do what we can to keep her healthy.
Refunds and Exchanges
For exchanges, please carefully package your item to return it to us. If it comes back to us damaged due to incomplete packaging, we will not give you a full refund. You are responsible for return postage. We will pay the postage on the item you have chosen instead.
