Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    Potions restock the 1st and 15th of each month at 2pm PST- however, due to a massive demand, they sell out in minutes.

If you are hoping for a specific potion, check the shop regularly. I will be listing the items that will be in the upcoming restock about a week early, with fake prices, so you can read the listings, view the pictures and add the items to your cart. (Don't worry, the prices will change once I bring the shop live at exactly 2pm. Please do not purchase early, I will only give you the option to receive the item at the fake price, or cancel your order, I will not adjust the price because I don't think that's fair for everyone else that's scrambling at 2.) I will be doing restock notices and dropping hints of new items on TikTok @grimsweetnessapothecary and on Instagram @grim_sweetness_apothecary.

Love and light,

A love of magic.

I have always loved magic and love creating little bits of magic for you to keep! My potions are unique in many ways. I love to make them glow, swirl, change colors and light up! Each of my labels is a tiny peice of art, I design them using only vintage images, often with renaissance period etchings, that are part of the public domain. (You will find that many shops are using other peoples art to decorate their bottles without permission.) All of my potions are my recipes, developed by me and I even hand marble the faux wax that tops these beauties. Each of my potions is created by me, start to finish with so, so much love.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you did!

Due to pandemic challenges, my ship times are slower than usual. I try really hard to get your order out within a week of your purchase, but it's not always possible! If you need something by a certain date, or would like me to combine separate orders, please shoot me a message!

Thank you for your patience and support!

Returns and exchange details
I offer a 15 day return period, as long as items are in original condition. If the item is damaged, I will happily cover the return shipping charge. If you decide that you don't love it (or didn't read about the size or aging) and would like to return it, I will not cover the return shipping. I hope that you love your items but please contact me with any issues!

I do not allow habitual cancellations and returns. I reserve the right to deny return/cancellation privileges to repeat offenders. I reserve the right to cancel orders of those who abuse my policies.

The bottles almost never leak, though it can happen due to the pressure in the airplane. If this should occur, I ask that you let them dry out for about two days. More often then not, they reseal themselves (magic!) and you can shake and enjoy them with no leaks. The labels are hand aged and part of this process is getting them wet. A little wetness won't hurt them, just leave them alone until they dry. If, after they dry, they still leak or are damaged, I will happily refund you or send you a new one!
Shipping
I ship within 5-7 days of recieving payment and always ship priority usps if the shipping charge covers it. I use recycled boxes and recyclable packing peanuts.

If you have upgraded to express shipping, please shoot me a message. Etsy doesn't notify me of upgraded shipping, so I don't find out until I box orders. If you message me, I will get your order shipped quicker!

Etsy automatically combines shipping charges, based on the weight of the potions you choose. Sometimes, on larger orders, Etsy overcharges a bit. When that happens, I refund the overage to you. If you make multiple purchases to the same address, in a short time frame, I try to catch it and ship them together and refund the excess. It helps me if you message me to let me know you'd like them shipped together.

INTERNATIONAL PEEPS: Please be aware of any customs charges that you country charges, I cannot ship these as gifts. If you refuse your package, I will refund you the cost of the bottles, but not the cost of shipping, as I will have paid that and can't get it back. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Grim Sweetness is eco smart:
- I use tree free, unbleached paper.
- I use eco friendly packing peanuts.
- I stock many box sizes, cutting down on the amount of packaging needed.
- I reuse packaging whenever possible.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Color change potions will continue to settle and change color when shaken indefinitely but require a little bit of TLC.
They want to be shaken and picked up often. I have seen the color change pigment congeal when a bottle was left for about a year without being shaken. This is something to consider if you're buying them for Halloween decorations and intend to pack them away for most of the year.

Thick potions can safely be packed away.

Direct sunlight is the other enemy of these potions. It does something weird to the pigments I use, and sometimes leaches the color out of them.

Glow in the dark and light up potions will need to be periodically charged in the sunlight in order to light up.
