The Evolution of Geek Fire Labs

After getting caught in a wave of layoffs at my job in early 2012, I decided it was time for a change. You know. Follow my bliss, go where my heart goes. And my heart regularly plays D&D, queues up for the midnight release of the newest Marvel movie, stays inside to farm pets in World of Warcraft and lives for putting the beatdown on others in Overwatch. In other words, I'm a huge geek!

In October 2012, I began regularly selling my wares at Artist Alleys within comic book conventions and found I enjoyed it immensely. In addition to producing and selling my art prints I began playing with bath and body supplies, making lip balms for friends and family. I found they brought delight to the faces of my loved ones! So I decided to share that delight with the online community.

Now I offer a wide selection of handmade lip balms and hand-blended, artisan perfumes on my Etsy store. I am always evolving and growing my selection of products, and I work hard to incorporate a fun, professional flair with all the best ingredients and practices I can find.

Between my Etsy store and my art shows, I have managed to turn a passion into a small but successful side business, and I will be forever thankful to those who have supported me on the journey. I couldn't have done it without all of you!

Thank you so much for your support and for reading.

Returns and exchanges
I pack my items with care in order to ensure that they will reach your doorstep safely.

Due to health code regulations, please understand that I am unable to accept returns on any products.

We do our best to describe the scent of our products, however please understand that scents are highly subjective and what may smell one way to one person may smell entirely different to another. We highly encourage our customers to purchase samples of the perfume oils prior to ordering a full bottle of it, just to be sure you love it. Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide refunds on full rollerball bottles.

If an item arrives damaged by transit, please convo me with an attached picture of the damage, and I will work with you to correct the situation.

I strive to ensure that all my customers are happy with the items that they order from my store. If you are ever displeased with your purchase please contact me before leaving less than stellar feedback. Give me a chance to work to make things right.
I accept PayPal, Direct Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards.

Sales tax will be applied to all orders within the state of Texas.
I make my lip balms, lotion bars and perfume oils in very small batches - this means your items are guaranteed to be freshly made when they arrive! Please note that it can take from 7-10 business days to create your order BEFORE it ships to you. If you need your order sooner, please contact me before purchasing a listing, otherwise I cannot guarantee to meet your deadline.


I ship via USPS. Please note that once a package leaves my doorstep, it is no longer under my control, and may take longer than the allotted chosen time period to reach you, especially during busy holiday times.


If you would like insurance added, please let me know BEFORE purchasing so that I may adjust the rates accordingly.

If you need your item by a specific date, please message me BEFORE purchasing so that I can ensure your package will reach you in a timely manner.

Please note that Geek Fire Labs cannot be held responsible for undelivered or lost packages due to issues on the USPS side. If a tracking number for an order states clearly that the item was delivered, and if you file a report with us that you did not receive it, we apologize that we will be unable to send another order or provide reimbursement for USPS's error. We hope you understand.

**********To my International Buyers************

I ship to you via USPS International, which means it can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks to reach you. Usually 1-2 weeks for Canada and the UK, 2-3 weeks for Australia.

Please be advised that you are responsible for any customs or related tariffs that may be imposed by your postal service for incoming mail to your country. I will not mark "gift" on the USPS customs form.

***Please note: When shipping via USPS International, it can take up to 3 weeks for your item to arrive depending on customs. I wish I had better control over this, unfortunately once a package leaves my doorstep, it is out of my control. Please take this shipping time into account when ordering for birthdays, holidays or other time-sensitive occasions!***
