Thank you for supporting our shop. We truly appreciate your business!!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you are not happy with any item, please contact us before leaving feedback and we will be happy to issue a refund congruent with the loss. You are responsible for the shipping costs of the returned item, unless we are at fault (i.e. mistakes in order, faulty items).

The item(s) needs to be returned in the same condition as it was mailed for full refund.

**Please note that lotions and balms are formulated to melt on the skin. Skin surface temperature is slightly less than your body temperature. Ordering these during the summer months is probably not a good idea. Mailbox temperatures can reach 200 degrees or more. So ya know...precede with caution and ask for insurance if there is any question about delivery for any item.

**Please also note that your purchase is for the product. The shipping costs are monies that goes to the USPS and we do not retain any profit from shipping. Therefore if an issue arises where the USPS loses a package (it happens...a lot); Ethically Engineered does control the product or shipping process and therefore does not consider itself responsible for the loss of the package if insurance was not purchased. We will do all within our power, as the sender, to notify the USPS of a missing package. With insurance we will file the claim. If this concerns you and you wish to choose a different shipper (ie UPS or Fed Ex) please convo us and we will invoice you for the proper shipping amount and follow up with a tracking number.
Paypal is preferred, but checks, money orders, and well-concealed cash (at your own risk) are also accepted.

Paypal payment is due within 3 DAYS, or your order will be canceled. Payment by check or money order is due within 1 week. Immediate or same-day paypal payments are extremely appreciated.

If you are mailing a check or money order, please include your etsy user name on the check. Thank you!
**A Special Note about Holidays: Orders placed by the USPS Shipping Deadlines will be sent First Class if under 13 oz and by Priority Small Flat Rate if over 13 oz. Orders placed after the deadline are in the abject and uncertain world of hopes and dreams.

**A Special Note to shoppers: The failure rate of the United States Postal Service has only increased recently. The owner of this shop has no control and therefore bears no responsibility for lost, damaged or unreceived items purchased without insurance once they are in the hands of the USPS. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

A special note to our customers world wide. The United States Post Office has recently raised rates for Small Priority Flat Rate shipping. They seem exorbitant to say the least. These small boxes can hold no more than 10 to 12 ounces of our bath and body products but cost more $16.95 to when shipping to Canada and Mexico. Outrageous for our products. We are looking into other shipping options at the moment. In the meantime please ask about shipping costs if it seems too high and I'll check to see if a less expensive alternative exists.

When available we attempt to reuse previous packing materials and we will never send you packing that does not bio-degrade; unless it is reused.
• Shipping days Are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
• Email me for requests to other shipping locations. Some countries I will ship to upon request and some countries I will not ship to if I am unable.

I also offer expedited shipping for an additional cost of $2.00. If you would like this service, please write a note in the Message to Seller when you check out. I will send you an updated invoice from PayPal for the additional service.

DOMESTIC Shipping:
• All domestic packages are mailed USPS Priority Flat Rate with delivery confirmation when larger than 13 oz. Those items that are less than 13 oz are sent First Class. Time Frame 7-10 days.
• Insurance: Is an additional 1.70 per order up to $50.00. If you would like insurance please email me for an updated invoice.
