frequently asked questions
when will my order ship?
Orders will typically ship within 1 week. All our products are handmade in small batches to preserve quality and freshness. Sometimes we will have every item in your order in stock, and sometimes we might have to make 1 or 2 items before we ship out so this will add a few extra days to shipping time. When labels are printed, a notice is automatically sent out with your tracking number. If tracking doesn't show up right away your order is on its way, but a few days may lapse between label printing and when we take packages to the post office, as orders only ship out 2 times a week. If labels are printed at the end of the week, orders will ship out on Mondays. Domestic orders are shipped priority mail and smaller orders are sometimes shipped first class. In either case transit times should be 2-5 days. International orders may take up to 3 weeks but typically arrive much sooner. Thank you for your patience with your orders.
do you still make floral smudge wands?
There has been an overwhelming number of requests for both regular and wholesale orders for these smudge wands. Due to the large amount of requests and the small amount of sage available right now in California, we will only be making these once a year. They are available in the spring only and once they sell out they're gone until next year. We do not take any wholesale orders anymore. We do however do custom smudge wands and bridal bouquets for weddings and special occasions. If you are a bride or bridesmaid seeking a unique bouquet made with sage, wildflowers and seasonal flowers contact us, and we will be happy to work with you on your custom order!
are all products vegan? gluten free? all natural?
All our products are made with 100% natural ingredients. Everything is free of preservatives and artificial ingredients. 100% of our products are gluten free. While most of our products are vegan (about 95%) a few products are not. These products will be marked as vegetarian. Why are they not considered vegan? We do use beeswax in our lip balms, and salves. If you have any questions about ingredients being suitable for your cosmetic restrictions don't hesitate to contact us.
are all products made with organic ingredients?
Everything we make is organic or wildcrafted. All our oils, essential oils and butters are organic. Some ingredients such as beeswax is not considered organic as bees are insects that can gather pollen from plants that are not organically grown. All ingredients that are wildcrafted are harvested by us in our herbal medicine garden or out in the mountains by our studio. All white sage is hand gathered by us locally in the mountains and deserts surrounding our studio. We are deeply rooted in the idea of sustainably harvesting herbs and to help keep their population thriving. We clone our own white sage plants as well as grow our own mature sage plants to preserve these native plants for future generations.
do herbs and crystals really work to promote healing?
While we do not provide medical advice, as a certified herbalist, I work with herbs to help promote healing. Herbs have been used for centuries to relive pain, heal wounds and as tea to soothe internal ailments. Herbs are a much safer more natural alternative to modern medicine. Herbs have worked for people for thousands of years before modern medicine became the dominant way. Crystals are intrinsically linked to us by simply existing on this planet with us. The stars, the rocks on the earth as well as our bodies are made up of water and minerals. It is only natural to think that crystals are similar to our composition, therefore can provide healing as vibrational medicine. Each crystal has its own vibration that works with specific parts of our bodies or our mind. They can be soothing, to calm anxiety, uplifting to lift us out of depression or even energizing to revitalize us.
what is the shelf life of the products?
Most products have a shelf life of 6 months- 1 year, but can last much longer. Oils should be kept out of sun and out of hot temperatures. You can increase the shelf life by placing oils and herbal waters in the fridge. (plus herbal waters feel amazing on the skin when cold!) Salts will last the longest and have an extremely long shelf life. Coconut milk based products should be kept away from water. Do not store coconut rose milk bath in shower. None of our products contain preservatives of any kind so natural ingredients will deteriorate over time. When kept in stable temperatures, all products will last 6 months +
how much bath soak should we use for a bath? bath tea?
How much you use is a preference but typically you should use a small handful or approximately 1/8 of the jar for single bath. There is no harm in adding more, its up to you. Add 2 bath tea bags per bath, but the more you add the more colorful and more pleasant the scent in your tub. For the coconut rose soak, use a clean spoon or dry hand to scoop it into bath water. Coconut can turn moldy if you get it wet and close lid, as it is all natural. To extend shelf life keep remaining soak away from water.
