Order Policies

Order Cancellation, Additions & Changes

Because each item in your order is hand packed or made fresh just for you, orders that are cancelled after they have gone to fulfillment will incur a 25% cancellation fee. To request a cancellation of a current ‘pending shipment’ order, please call us: 360-869-7900. If your order hasn’t processed to our fulfillment center, no charge will be incurred and the order can be cancelled. If your order has reached our shipping department, it is not cancelable an no refunds will be granted.

Shipping Fees, Rush Orders & Transit Times

Typical shipping times are 3 business days from order date. An email containing tracking information will be sent to you once your package(s) have been shipped. If you receive more than one tracking e-mail, this most likely means you have more than one box coming, so please save all tracking notices. Instructions are provided within these e-mails on how to track your box(es) as they move through the carrier’s system.

For an additional fee of $25 we do have a rush shipment program. Please call or email us before placing a rush order, as these need to be handled differently. There are also certain times of the year that we cannot honor rush shipment requests, so please do check with us first.  Phone: 360-869-7900.

U.S. Customers and U.S. Occupied Territories:

US Priority Mail is reserved for customers who are having their box shipped to a PO Box, hold a military address, live in Alaska/Hawaii, or if they reside in a US occupied territory.  Our cart is unable quote flat rate shipping for these orders, so this step is done manually.  If we are able to send via flat rate boxes, we will do so and refund you the over paid shipping amount, less a $3.00 handling fee.

Damaged Freight / Lost Packages

Although every effort is made to ensure a safe delivery, sometimes an order is damaged during shipment. We want to know if something arrives to you in a damaged condition. To begin the process, we will require that you take pictures of the damaged product(s), and box material if relevant. These pictures can be taken from a cell phone and texted to: 971-888-0279 (please include your invoice number in the body of the text). This phone is a text-only center, and messages left there will be replied to thru email only.

You may also e-email your damaged freight pictures to chris@organic-creations.com.

Lost packages at the hands of a carrier are indeed a bummer.  We get that!  As the shipper, we are not responsible for parcels that we have correctly shipped. If your parcel becomes lost, please email us and we will contact the carrier to open a claim.  Ultimately, however, it is the carrier’s decision on they wish to handle the claim.  If they accept responsibility, we will work out the details on getting a new shipment to you.  If they do not accept responsibility, this issue is between you and the carrier.  Organic Creations Inc does not provide refunds, credits or resends on parcels that were correctly shipped from our facility without the carrier accepting responsibility – this includes stolen parcels.

When using a customer provided FedEx or UPS account number, please note that the liability for damaged shipments rests on the account holder.  This means if you have Organic Creations Inc ship via your account, we cannot file a claim or re-ship products as we are not authorized to speak to the carrier regarding your account.

Returns / Incorrect Items / Received Undeliverable Boxes

Because of the nature of the products we sell, we do not accept returns for any reason unless it was a packaging error on our part. If you received an incorrectly issued item, please contact us right away at chris@organic-creations.com with as much detail as possible to facilitate our internal processes of correcting this issue for you. Items that are mailed back to us without receiving a proper Return Authorization Number from Organic Creations Inc. will be discarded and a refund will not be granted. All returns, incorrectly shipped items or items not received need to be brought to our attention within 30 days of placing/receiving your order.  We will not honor credits or refunds if we are notified past 30 days.

If your box is returned back to us as undeliverable, we will contact you to collect the correct information. If it’s determined that you provided us with the wrong shipping address, the freight carrier will require new postage to be affixed to the re-shipped box. This expense will be the responsibility of the customer. The simplest way to avoid this issue is to read your order confirmation. If you accidentally provided us an incorrect shipping or billing address, contact us right away: barb@organic-creations.com.

If you decide you do not want the box re-shipped to you, the product total will be refunded back to your payment method less our 25% restocking fee to cover administrative expenses. No shipping fees will be reimbursed, as they have already been “used up” when the box was originally shipped.

Back Orders / Discontinued Items

We strive to keep our inventory “in stock” at all times. However, from time to time we do run into product shortages. If this happens to an item you ordered, we will notify you by email at the time your order is shipped and you will also receive a backorder slip inside your shipment.

Out of stock or discontinued items that cannot be shipped within 1-1/2 weeks of your initial shipment leaving our facility will be immediately credited back to your payment method with any unused shipping fees.

Product Packaging

Essential Oils: For orders shipped within the connected 48 states, your EO’s will be packed in glass up to 16oz. Sizes beyond that are always shipped in plastic, for safety reasons. Orders outside of the connected 48 states, will be packed in amber PET plastic for all sizes above 2oz.

Fragrance Oils: All sizes above 2oz are packed in PET plastic regardless of shipping destination.

Our bottles are filled by volume, not by weight. This means if you order a 16oz. bottle of product, you will receive a 16oz. bottle filled to normal capacity based on the size of the bottle.  If you need to know the weight of the product inside the bottle – please work out those details by either phone, chat program, or email.  We will be happy to give you the product weight.

Products filled into jars, or baggies are filled by weight of product.

Infestation Policy

Please be aware that when purchasing certified organic botanical and herbs, they can be subject to insect infestation.  Largely this is due to how certified organic crops have to be handled.

Conventional (or not organic herbs) are typically irradiated with low doses of radiation which kills larva, bacteria and any current infestation.  Certified organic herbs cannot be exposed to radiation and the NOP provides very few methods of cleaning botanicals, typically mild soap and water which does little to reduce natural infestation.

Because of the non-invasive methods used in organic farming, it is expected that your product may not stay pest free.  The product sent to you should be pest free from visible growth, but that may change with time.  We always recommend freezing your herbs which help reduce this issue.  Never store herbs in a warm location and when possible, transfer them into Tupperware like containers.

If your product is found to contain pests within 30 days of purchase, please send us pictures by email. We will gladly work out the details of a refund.  Anything past 30 days is beyond our policy guidelines and is the sole responsibility of the purchaser.  We are only liable for the cost of the infested product, no other expenses will be honored.
