📭 Processing time is in + + addition + + to USPS transit travel time from N Cal to your US destination. 🎁🛍

💌 USPS Travel Time 💌 Effective October 1, 2021 the USPS implemented a new transit-to-delivery program for some First Class shipments.

On Etsy since 2014

About Lavessence™

A deep rooted passion for lavender began way back in 2000 when I discovered this magical purple flowering herb to be a natural remedy to treat my severe migraine headaches. The love of this aromatic herb led to the launch of a small bath and body company. The following years experienced explosive growth shared with an amazing team of lavender lovers.

A series of unique life events led to a change of hands of my original company years ago... Though the company changed hands, lavender never left my heart! My passion for lavender and aromatic bath and body products never waned.

Botanical bliss is embedded in the Spirit of Lavessence™... Closely watching the evolution of home fragrance as well as tinkering and creating products for nearly two decades. A new series of unique life events has brought everything full circle, and in 2014 a new brand, Lavessence™ was born!

Thank you taking part in the Lavessence™ experience ❤

Shipping
Packages are sent via USPS Mail*

⏳ Processing Time - Note each specific listing and/or the Shop Announcement. Processing times may vary depending on the item and/or the time of year.

⌛️ Shipping Time - (in addition to processing time) Orders are shipped via USPS Mail* Smaller/lighter items are shipped via First Class which make take a few days to a week or so to travel. Larger/Heavier orders usually ship via USPS Priority Mail which takes 1-3 days mail travel from California to your USA destination (on top of processing time). In some instances Parcel Post may be used, which can take a smidgen longer.

🧮 Shipping Rates - Shipping is estimated by weight for each order based on USPS rates + cost of materials.

Some items in the shop include free shipping, while others are free shipping when the total purchase reaches $35 or more. This is specified in each listing.

There will need to be a separate order placed for each shipping address, we will not ship a single order to multiple addresses.

Packaging Materials - Mainly bubble mailers and/or USPS Priority Mail Boxes. In addition, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, paper shred, etc... Please recycle where available!

🔨 Damaged Goodies. If a lavender lovely arrives damaged, please send a message within 24 hours of the tracked delivery date. Please message via the Etsy messaging system and include the following;

Order Number
Photo(s) of item damage
Photo(s) of exterior of shipping package

If the all the above are submitted, and meet claim criteria - a claim will be filed with the shipping carrier and damaged lavender lovelies will be replaced.

📭 Lost Goodies. Once a package is dropped off at the shipper, Lavessence is no longer responsible for the item, as it is in the hands of the trusted carrier. However, if a package with confirmed delivery seems to be missing.... ⬇️

🔎 Investigate. Please check all possible delivery locations at the confirmed delivery address; (door wo/man, mail room, mailbox, manager’s office, porch, back door, side door...) Also check with all those whom share the same address and/or may have brought in the package, placing it in a random location (desk in the home office, coffee table, kitchen counter, top of the cat post...)

⏰ Sometimes it’s just ‘late’. On occasion, a delivery person scans an item as delivered ‘before’ actually delivering. Employees are under tremendous pressure to meet delivery deadlines. It’s possible an item may show up a day or days after delivery confirmation.

🏴‍☠️ Porch Pirates. Sometimes packages are just stolen. If the mail box, porch, etc... is exposed, it’s at greater risk and prime target for theft.

📍 Once all possible persons and locations are checked, and you are 110% sure it’s not hiding somewhere, late, stolen and/or your RING can prove it was never delivered - you’ll have the ammo to reach out to your local postmaster to file a lost package claim. ➡️ Helpful Tip! When packages are scanned for delivery, the postal employee’s delivery device logs a delivery address geocode (exact location on a map of the scan). USPS can use this stored data to verify if the package was indeed delivered at the correct address, or accidentally put on the neighbor’s porch.

⚠️ Lavessence does not have the capacity to contact the USPS on your behalf. The recipient will need to attempt to call, or the better option is to walk in to the local branch with tracking number in hand.

🤦‍♀️ Incorrect Shipping Address. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure Lavessence has the correct shipping address. Be sure to review the shipping address during the ordering process. Lavessence will ship to the address as provided with the order within the designated area (not a separate comment or convo) if the address is incorrect and the package is returned, the item will need to be RE-shipped with new postage label, and the buyer will be responsible for the second shipping fee (even if the original order qualified for free shipping) If it was shipped and delivered to an incorrectly provided address, we are not able to recall the package. A new order would have to be placed (unless you are able to retrieve the item).

⁉️ Undeliverable and/or Returned Packages. As noted above, if for any reason a package is returned, the buyer is responsible to inquire about the returned order, and will need to pay additional shipping costs to RE-ship the package (even if the original order qualified for free shipping).

* Large custom orders may be able to be shipped via FedEx or UPS, this will be discussed during the custom order negotiations.
Additional policies and FAQs
Lavessence, a more Environmentally Friendly Brand...

...Greening is the process of moving towards a greener way of doing business.

Having been involved with the industry for nearly two decades, I was making bath and body products prior to the 'go green' movement as we all know it today. Things were very different back in 2000! Upon launch of the Lavessence™ brand, I have been taking steps towards being a greener company...

A greener brand that is not only better for the environment, but also better for lavender lovers! Wherever economically possible I am...

...choosing ingredients that are natural, fair trade, wild crafted, non GMO, etc...
...choosing product packaging that can be more readily recycled.
...choosing shipping materials and methods that reduce the company's carbon footprint.
...choosing suppliers that are closer to our headquarters to further reduce the carbon footprint.
...choosing more computer based record keeping with less printing

Frequently asked questions
🌼🌱☕️ Flowers, Herbs, Teas

Different types of flowers, herbs and teas will fill packaging to different levels. For instance an ounce of Lavender Chamomile Tea will “look” like more than an ounce of Earl Grey Tea. Due to this, some tea blends may appear to ‘fill’ the packaging more than others. Or from another perspective, some options may appear to not ‘fill’ the packaging as much as others. Please take this in to consideration when ordering. 🤗

⚖️ 1 oz Zip Bag, measured by weight
⚖️ 1 oz Container, measured by weight
🍨1 Cup Container, measured by volume*

*Larger piece flowers and herbs like Chamomile, Jasmine, Lavender, Lemongrass, Rose Petal are measured by volume {See below for ”🍨 One Cup (how many oz?) Dry vs Liquid}

⚖️ One Cup (how many oz?) Dry vs Liquid

The answer isn’t as simple as it may seem... Both liquid and dry measure have the same name, "one cup"

In our shop, items sold in cup increments are referring to dry measure using a one cup scoop.

⚖️ Dry measurement cups are one cup of whatever is scooped.

Dry measure ingredients vary greatly in weight, examples:

🌹 1 cup of rose petals weighs about 0.5 oz
💜 1 cup of lavender flowers weighs about 0.75 oz
🥣 1 cup of all-purpose flour weighs about 4.5 oz
🍪 1 cup of chocolate chips weighs about 6 oz

On the flip side…

🥛 Fluid Ounces, liquid measuring cups indicate that 1 cup of liquid = 8 fluid ounces.

⚠️ To clarify, one cup of lavender flowers is {{not}} 8 oz of flowers, as flowers are dry and not a liquid.
