We are a couple from NYC on a mission: to clean up dirty people with tea power.

We're just starting our journey: a basement kitchen, one soap pot, one work table, and a knife for each of us. It ain't much, but we're making it work!

What we do have is tea. Lots and lots of tea.

My husband has been an enthusiast of rare and gourmet teas since he was a teenager, and has long since dragged us down his darkened path. As are result, we're steeped (ha!) in unusual, amazing teas: some from countries you've probably never even heard of, others as familiar as breakfast.

And then it occurred to us: Hey. Tea is great for your skin. It's soothing, softening, mildly astringent, and it smells great, too. Can't waste it all in our teapots!

And thus, Heart and Dart was born. We're learning as we go, with the love of tea to lead us.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Due to the nature of soap, we, unfortunately, cannot accept returns. It is an all-natural product, and naturally, is a little different from time to time. We do try to keep the listings updated with the characteristics of each batch.

We are, however, more than happy to replace missing or damaged items; we want you to love our soaps as much as we do! Please contact us within 10 days of receipt for replacement.

You can contact us here on Etsy, or email at heartanddart>@gmail.com.
We primarily accept Paypal for payment, though money orders are great, too! If you pay by eCheck or money order, your soap will ship once it's cleared. No personal checks, please.

Your order will be canceled if it's not paid for and we cannot get in touch with you within three days of checkout.
We normally ship twice a week (Monday and Thursday or thereabouts), but in practice, we try to get your order out the day after it is received.

All soaps arrive in a bubble envelope, wrapped in protective kraft paper. Please reuse our envelopes and recycle our packaging!

Sets and Stacks are priced to ship Priority in the US, and individual soaps via first class with delivery confirmation. If you'd also like insurance, just ask!

If you buy four or more items, they'll always ship Priority within the US. Large orders (six or more soaps) can be shipped flat-rate at a savings!

Yes, we do ship internationally! Please note that international shipments always have the chance of incurring a customs fee, which is the responsibility of the buyer. Also, we cannot be responsible for any other actions customs may take with your order. Our soaps do contain plant material, which, even though heated and processed, is restricted in some countries.

And we will ship to your giftee! Cards with your message are free, and gift wrap is available for a small extra charge, depending on the size of your gift.

Shipping overpayments of more than $1.00 US will be refunded. Refunds of less than a dollar will be doubled and donated yearly to Infinite Hope (http://www.hopevet.com/adoption.html), a cat and small animal rescue in Brooklyn, NY.

Need different shipping options? Just ask!

Our soaps are made in a smoke-free, pet-restricted studio in the Bronx, NY. We do have four cats and a bunny, but not when we're working!

Both soap and tea are natural products, and their characteristics (Especially color!) can and will change over curing and storage time. We do try to be as consistent as possible, but Ma Nature will have her say. :D
