Shipping Updates

news shipping shipping rates

Shipping Updates International rates: I’ve contracted with a third-party platform in order to get the absolute lowest possible shipping rates via bulk/volume discounts. Transit time is 1-4 weeks depending on your location/local service, and packages are fully trackable from my door to yours if you live in one of the 55 participating countries. [1] These are the best international shipping rates I’ve ever seen, and I’m really excited to have finally negotiated them for my overseas customers. Just for an example: Canada Rest of World 2 half-ounce bottles of oil $9.00 $11.00 3.5 pounds worth of stuff $24.00 $36.00 See the Shipping Rates...

Magical Packages

news shipping status usps

Check *this* shit out. The USPS has Santa on the crew or something doing some kinda crazy North Pole time-and-space bending magic: The tracking says refused. Customer didn’t refuse it. It was returned to *me.* In Alabama. They’re just freakin’ making shit up at this point. I don’t even know how it’s possible that the scan for delivery shows what it does – I don’t know enough about their computers. But obviously it’s not a seamless, foolproof tracking system  I’m really lucky that the overwhelming majority of my customers are being really super cool about this insanity and aren’t taking...

this isn’t just the USPS being overwhelmed – this is some kind of shady shit

news shipping status usps

This item was a shrine/ornament – no prep work involved. No extended handling time or anything. I took it off its altar, blessed it, wrapped it up in tissue paper, boxed it, paid the $35-something for the shipping label because the customer paid for Priority Mail Express, and sent it out that same day for Mike to drop off at the post office. *Which he did, before C.O.B.* Here’s what the tracking says: December 13, 2020, 3:58 pmShipping Label Created, USPS Awaiting ItemGRAND BAY, AL 36541  December 23, 2020, 5:09 amArrived at Post OfficeGRAND BAY, AL 36541  December 23, 2020, 7:42 amRefusedGRAND BAY, AL 36541  December...

having some major and weird shipping problems

news shipping status usps

I've pretty much spent the last two days that I wasn't doing chores or sleeping trying desperately to figure out what is going on with these packages the USPS has returned to me. Turns out you cannot just call somebody at the USPS and ask them lol, and my local carrier has no idea. One of them was scanned, made it to the East Coast, and then came back to me with nothing in the system to indicate why. It was international. I cannot get a refund because it was scanned, so the label was "used." Now I have to...

Coffee at Midnight available again; shipping info

coffee at midnight condition oils news product news products shipping specialty oils spiritual supplies

Several of you have asked about Coffee at Midnight, and I have made a batch. I had to tweak the recipe slightly because some of the ingredients have *quadrupled* in price (or worse) since I last made this in 2015, and I just plain cannot afford to use one of the absolutes I used to include in this formula. But I have tried to make up for it elsewhere in the formula so that's nothing lost either in the overall scent or in the formula's spiritual attributions. Y'all will have to let me know what you think. Here's the formula...
