There are a variety of shipping restrictions based in part on the safety required in shipping some of the products we sell, and in part due to the rules and regulations governing the kinds of materials which can be imported to particular nations.
Some fragrance oils and lye can only ship via ground to the contiguous 48 states. Due to the flashpoint of these items, they cannot be shipped via air. We add shipping restrictions at the end of each product description so be sure to look for this when placing your order.
Due to import/export regulations we cannot ship to Italy, Greece, or Russia. Korea, Japan, New Zealand and Brazil all have different shipping restrictions related to botanicals.
About once a year or less, we have a free shipping discount and will post it on all of our social media sites as well as the front page of our own website. Do look for it! Otherwise, shipping is based on weight and distance from Bellingham WA and any savings discount we get, we pass down to you.
