Weird and Radical At Heart

Hello, I am Amelia R. Thompson, and I will be your storyteller today:

Once upon a time in 2010, I went to a birthday party on a very cold night. After that night, I was sick in bed with the flu! Stuck at home, I decided to watch some online videos on how to create new crafts.

Ever since, I have been making soap bars and candles with weird and wacky fragrances. Why weird fragrances like "Garlic" or "Gas Station"? I simply love the smell of those fragrances and I wanted to share my love for them with others.

Why the name "Radical Works"? When I think of 'Radical', I think of the weird and extreme things in life, which is what my products embody. It's unusual to have a Corn Chips candle or a Gunpowder scented soap bar, but isn't a joy to know that those things exist?

As for Ezra, he is my lovable assistant with all the rainbows and bubbles you can imagine! Octopi are very intelligent, and Ezra is no exception. He has joined me with not only soap & candles, but also my knitting.

Thank you so much for reading my story, I hope you find the weird in the simple things.

Returns and exchange details
* Dislike a fragrance? *
Refunds, exchanges and/or returns will not be issued or accepted as a result of personal opinions or preferences in regards to how an item smells.
Scented items are a matter of personal preference and are perceived differently by each individual. Please keep in mind that how a fragrance smells on the skin and how long it lasts is determined by each person’s unique body chemistry - not the fragrance or the product.

- If an item is missing in the transition of shipment, a replacement or a full refund may be requested.
- DOMESTIC ORDERS: Please wait at least two weeks after shipment before the item is declared missing.
- INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Orders shipped internationally can take up to two months to reach their destination. Please let me know in due time if the item has never arrived.

Payment
I accept Paypal and any other major credit card. Payment for an item must be received within a week of purchase or the order is canceled.

CUSTOM REQUESTS: There is no deadline to pay for a custom order, however, custom orders will not begin the process of being filled until payment has been received. Until full payment has been received, the order will not be filled.
Shipping
The current processing time of Radical Works is 3-5 days. This gives time for the items to be made, as well as for packages to arrive with supplies to complete the orders.

All of the items are shipped in a secure tear-resistant poly mailer. Every bath item comes shrink wrapped. All items are gifted wrapped with tissue paper, bubble wrap, and placed in decorative gift bags.

Shipping confirmation will be sent in an e-mail once the item is in the possession of the U.S.P.S.

All orders will be shipped using the standard First Class shipping of the USPS, unless a shipping upgrade has been made at the time of purchase (at the time of checkout).

Shipping upgrades are available at checkout. These upgrades include Priority (2-3 days) and Express (1-2 days). Please take advantage of these upgrades during the holiday season, as the standard shipping can become slower than normal due to the high volume of packages.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have any questions, please contact me.

Orders made through Etsy will be handled and communicated through the Etsy conversation system.

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to ship an item?

The processing time is 3 - 5 days. This does not equal shipping time. Shipping time is affected by the shipping rate purchased by the buyer.

I have a friend/family member with a birthday coming up. Can the process be sped up to get my item sooner?

Happy Birthday to them! While we keep in mind that the item is a present, please remember that we fill orders on a first come, first served basis. If there is a concern if the item will get to you in time, please select "Priority" or "Express" shipping at checkout.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom fragrances: If you see a fragrance that does not have the item you want associated with it, we can make the item with the fragrance you request. I.e. "Raspberry fragrance, but no lip balm with that fragrance." We can make a lip balm with the Raspberry fragrance for you at no extra charge.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Items purchased:

- Shrink wrapped
- Wrapped in decorative tissue paper
- Wrapped in bubble wrap
