About

This is Yates Apothecary

The idea for Yates Apothecary started in 2010...shortly after the birth of our son, and me deciding to leave my full time career as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist. I spent over 13 year as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist...years of pagers, on-call, late nights, and radiation. I realized I wasn't happy. Money wasn't an issue, but my happiness was.

There were long talks with my husband, lots of tears, and terrifying thoughts of leaving stability for something I thought was a "hobby". The leap of faith happened...I quit my job. "I must be crazy", I thought.

Top 10 facts in 2010:
1. Brand new baby (Brom)
2. 18 month old toddler (Magnus)
3. Left my 13 year career job (that paid good money)
4. Started thinking about what makes me happy
5. Cried a lot
6. I think I need a therapist
7. Still crazy
8. Can I get my job back?
9. Started piecing together Yates Apothecary
10. I bought me first perfumer's kit + books

Fast forward 5 years ---> Yates Apothecary has grown and so have I. The boys are alive, I'm still married and I'm happy.

Yates Apothecary was named in honor of my dog, Yates. He was a silly chocolate lab that I named after my favorite poet: William Butler Yeats. When I registered him with the AKC, they changed his name (accidentally) to Yates. He was my heart dog, my love, and my family. My nickname for Yates was pig...which is why the logo has a pig.

Cheers,

Melissa Hale

Payment
Yates Apothecary accepts PayPal and all major credit cards directly through Etsy checkout.

If you are paying with an e-check through PayPal, your item will ship once the e-check clears, which can take up to 5 business days.
Shipping
All orders are processed and packed in 2-3 business days of payment received. I ship orders Monday thru Friday. I do not ship on Saturdays...I'm busy playing with my boys, teaching workshops, and hosting events in our studio.

Packages include tracking information and will be emailed at the time the order ships.

I cannot be responsible for lost or stolen packages. If you would like to add insurance or a signature confirmation to your shipping cost please convo me before your purchase and I will be happy to accommodate you.

Please make sure you include all information in the message to seller (such as which scents you choose for your sample perfume sets) before placing your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do my very best to describe each item in great detail. I know that perfumes/scents can be a personal experience. Knowing this...I recommend purchasing the Yates Apothecary sampler so that you know what the scent is like before purchasing a larger bottle. Perfumes, lip balms, and body butters are non-refundable.

If there is an issue with your order (incorrect items, missing items, or incomplete/damaged items) I will be happy to provide you with an exchange or replacement.

If USPS does not properly deliver your package I cannot be held responsible. Please contact your local postmaster with your tracking number and file a complaint.

My return address is:

Yates Apothecary
2150 Rockwell Ave
Cleveland, Ohio 44114
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom perfume orders are welcomed. Please convo me for details and to set up an consult.

Wholesale orders are also welcomed. Again...please send me a convo for details and prices.

SAFETY
Keep products in a cool + dry environment and away from direct sunlight and humidity. Use only for their intended purpose.

Avoid eye area and do not consume.

Test a small amount on your skin for a day if you think you may be allergic to any plant materials.

Consult a physician if you plan to use while pregnant or nursing. Some essential oils are very powerful and I do not recommend usage on infants or children without your own personal research or medical consent.


STORAGE
Shelf life of perfume oils (if properly stored) will last about 2 years.

Body butters will melt in warmer temperature. Place jar in your refrigerator for a hour to re-solidify. Keep water out of jar with body butter. Shelf life is 1 year.

Lip balm shelf life is 1 year
