It's such a treat ordering soaps from this shop! Soaps are gentle and moisturizing, but the best part is choosing something special from the list of unique scent blends and then opening up the package when it arrives to smell it for the first time.

About

Behind GTG...

Being my own boss was a dream of mine for a long time but the road to making that happen was never clear. After my husband and I went through a heartbreaking experience, my Mom graciously stepped in and saw that I needed something to help me take my mind off of what had happened. So with her help and encouragement, I decided to learn how to make soap and I fell in love with it. From that very first pour into my very first soap mold I have been hooked and our shop was born. I am always searching for new molds and constantly writing down soap ideas.

As someone with a creative soul, I often have felt out of place in our society-driven world. I am more of a "go my own way" kind of gal. I have a unique view of the world and I enjoy marching along to the beat of my own drum rather than the beat that society tries to make me conform to. Crafting is my escape and where I find a sense of peace. I enjoy many crafting mediums, but I have an overwhelming passion for bath and body products and fragrances and creating soaps is such a joyful process for me. My shop is a reflection of all of my quirky sides; whimsical and fun soaps, useful and beautifully fragranced bar soaps and lotions and perfume oils in unique fragrances to capture every side of one’s personality.

I am grateful beyond words for my Mom who has always offered me endless amounts of support, kind words and the best hugs around. She is my best friend and without her, Garden Tale Gifts would not have been possible.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read about my shop. I hope that you find something here that speaks to you and brings a smile! Thanks again and have a happy day! Oh, and please stop by the shop often – I’m always adding something new and exciting!!

Gratitude,

Daria

Due to the nature of our items, we do not accept returns. If for some reason though, you are unhappy, please contact us and we will try our best to remedy the situation. We always want our customers to be happy and would appreciate the opportunity to resolve any issues before negative feedback is left.

We cannot be held responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items once they leave our hands. In most instances, all lost, stolen and returned packages are the responsibility of the buyer but please contact us if you do have any problems with your order so the situation can be examined more closely. We work extremely hard making our products and carefully shipping them out to you and cannot take responsibility for a failure within the USPS system.


However, if an item you receive is severely damaged, please take a photo of the item and contact us immediately (within 24 hours of delivery confirmation). We will work with you to remedy the situation so that both parties are satisfied.
Payment
We accept direct checkout through Etsy and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
Most items ship within 1-2 weeks of purchase date (Lots of times much sooner). Please read my shop announcement for current shipping and production times. Thank you for your patience! I have noticed postal delays recently, so please allow an extra few days for package delivery once shipped! Please remember that I have NO control over how quickly your package arrives to you once it is at the post office!!!

***************PLEASE READ!!! We ship to the Etsy shipping address YOU provide to us! We are NOT responsible for incorrect shipping information and will NOT issue a refund or replace items on any order that was shipped to an incorrect address which you provided. PLEASE, PLEASE review your shipping address carefully prior to completing check out.*********************

We ship all of our products USPS either First Class or Priority Mail to ensure that they reach you quickly and safely. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about the cost of shipping one item and we have had to adjust our shipping prices accordingly. If you are ordering multiple items and the shipping seems high, it could be the way Etsy calculates shipping. If you are ordering multiple items and are grossly overcharged for shipping we will always credit your account any overages, minus our fees for packaging supplies, shipping time, etc., once the shipping label has been printed. If you would prefer to set up a custom listing to be given a more accurate shipping charge, we would be happy to do that, just send us a convo with the items you wish to purchase and your zip code. We love helping our customers any way we can!


****Please note that multiple items in one order will ship by the latest ship date listed. If you order made to order items such as favors or items that have a 1-2 week ship date with other in stock items (3-5 business days), they will all ship together in the made to order time frame. Items will not be shipped out separately.****

We apologize for the inconvenience, but at this time we do not ship internationally.

We will ship to the address you provide to us. We are not responsible for incorrect shipping information and will not issue a refund or replace items on any order that was shipped to an incorrect address which you provided. Please review your shipping address carefully prior to check out.

If your items must be picked up at your local post office after attempted delivery and they are not picked up in the time frame allowed by the postal service and are returned to us, we will not offer refunds or reship your item. All packages come with tracking information and it is the buyers responsibility to pick up their package.

If you wish to send your purchase as a gift, just put their info in the shipping information part of check out. If you leave me a note in the note to seller box with a gift message you would like me to include in the package I would be more than happy to do so!

Please be aware that if questions about your order arise we will try multiple times to contact you. If these contacts go ignored, we will unfortunately have to refund and cancel your order. Please do not order if you are not willing to communicate via Etsy convo's regarding anything about your purchase!
Additional policies and FAQs
All of our soaps are handmade, so each bar will be unique and special just for you! No two bars will be exactly the same. Color variation from soap to soap can be expected due to the handcrafted nature of each item. The color of your soap may vary slightly from the photo.

Please note that essential oils bars, for the most part, contain a lighter scent throw than the fragrance oil bars.

****As stated in listings, some of my soaps will darken to a brown or tan color due to the unique makeup of each fragrance used. I do not personally like to use a stabilizer to prevent this from happening, so please be aware that the bar you receive may not be as white as the one in the photo!!!****

Please feel free to convo me with any questions! Convo's are generally responded to Monday-Friday during normal business hours with the exception of major holidays.

Custom orders can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to ship after the order is placed. It is best to order as early as possible to be sure your soaps can be completed in time for your special occasion.

**All fragrance oils used in the shop are of the highest quality and are all phthalate & nitro musk free.**

We only use high quality soap bases that are cruelty free ~ no animal testing, and contain no detergents or SLS. They are also loaded with moisturizing ingredients that are excellent for your skin.

All of my soaps are made with a luxurious vegan friendly glycerin soap base. Here are some great facts about it!
100% Pure, Glycerin Soap
Hypo-Allergenic
Cruelty Free ~ No Animal Testing
Sustainable Palm Oil
No Detergents
Non Comedogenic
No Sulfates (SLS)
No Alcohol
Biodegradable
Paraben Free
Gluten Free


If you happen to see tiny crystals on your soaps, please be assured that this does not affect the quality or usability of your item. Glycerin soaps attract moisture and occasionally the temperature changes that can occur during the shipping process can cause this to happen. However, your soaps are still perfectly fine as this can be wiped away or it will rinse off after the first use. Since glycerin soaps do attract moisture, it is always best to leave them wrapped up when not in use!


PLEASE NOTE: If you are pregnant, breast feeding, taking any medicine or have been diagnosed with any medical condition, please consult your doctor prior to using any essential oil products.
I do not make any claims regarding the soaps. They are not meant to treat, cure or prevent any disease or health concern.
I encourage you to do your own research prior to purchasing any items containing essential oils. We will not be held responsible for any adverse effects from the soap.
Some essential oils are photosensitive, specifically citrus oils, so please use caution and avoid direct sunlight after use.

Our soaps, solid perfumes and lotions are not huge fans of extreme heat so please consider where these items will be left upon delivery and help them find a cool, happy place as soon as possible! We are not responsible to any melting that occurs after we ship the products.

Please take into consideration that perfume scent strength and throw will vary by fragrance as well as by person due to each person's varying pH levels. I do my best to describe each fragrance as accurately as possible, but everyone's nose picks up scent differently! Solid perfume does not give out a strong scent throw the way traditional perfume does so the scent is not offensive but rather light and more intimate.

Solid perfume and lotion bar tins will rust if they come into contact water or water based products. Please make sure your hands are free from any type of moisture before applying perfume!

All ingredients are fully disclosed and we will not be held responsible for any allergies one may have concerning our products. Please use your own judgment when purchasing from the shop and take note of all ingredients used throughout the store as all items are made in the same area.

Coupon codes for the shop must be entered PRIOR to checkout. No adjustment will be made on price once an order is placed.

We would love it if upon receipt of your order, you could take time to leave us some positive feedback! This helps the business to grow and lets others know that you loved your item! However, if for some reason you are unhappy, please, please contact me before leaving negative feedback. Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance so please give us the chance to rectify the situation. This is my livelihood and not only would snarky comments hurt my business, but it would also hurt my feelings. We do all this to bring a tiny bit of happiness to others. I know this is all over the computer, but please remember that it is still a person on the other side.

We accept custom orders. If you need more quantity of any item we have available, just let us know and we will do our best to work to meet your needs. We can make our soap in any color/scent/shape combination. If you do not see what you want here, please just ask and we will do our best to make it for you.
