Please note: If any of the items you order are in Glass [if they are it will be listed on the individual page for the item itself] we encourage you to choose Priority Mail as your shipping option when checking out. First Class is shipped in a bubble envelope and is not a safe option for Glass bottles and/or droppers. If you do choose to pick First Class, we strongly encourage you to contact us to add Insurance.
If no insurance is added, and an item breaks in transit, we cannot be held liable for replacing the package.)
- Please choose the correct shipping option. If you are not sure, contact us ahead of time and we can let you know which option to choose.
- When we have to contact customers for their shipping it pushes their order to the back of the line.
Make sure the address on your ORDER is correct.
- Please ONLY choose FREE shipping if your order for USA exceeds $195.00 (with no other coupons) for Retail Finished Products only (not ingredients)
Remember free shipping cannot be combined with any other coupon/or promotion.
- Add 6-8 ounces per package [except flat rate box] for the weight of the box and packing material. This will help to keep us all from having any confusion when charging extra for shipping.
NOTE: your shipping notice will come from stamps.com Please add them to your e-mail
contact list. We ship to the address in the "shipping" section of
your order. We do not use the addresses in PayPal.
Once a package leaves our hands, it is up to USPS to deliver the packages.
Please note INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES ARE NOT TRACKED ONCE THEY LEAVE THE USA. This service is only available if you choose express shipping or add registered mail to your package. (extra fees)
Remember also that all international orders must pass through your local customs office before heading on to your international post office. Many times when packages do not arrive within the time frame expected it is because of your customs office. (Please allow for more time for this. We cannot control this part of the process)
International orders are processed and shipped via USPS First Class International rates and cannot be tracked once the package has departed our GoW facilities. If you are an international customer and would like tracking, please select 'International Priority Air Mail' from the drop-down options at checkout. All duties and tariffs are the responsibility of the customer and Garden of Wisdom is not responsible for any payment of duties or tariffs for said international orders, Please contact your local Customs Office in your country for further details. Packages can be delayed while processing at your Customs Office up to 14 - 21 days from the date of arrival.
Please check your order upon arrival for any errors or damages. Let us know within 48 hours so we can take care of any issues immediately.
If your package is taking longer than the estimated time frame below, please contact us and we will see what information we can find out. Nearly always, we only have the same information as is available on the original shipping confirmation. We can confirm that it has left the country.
**FREE shipping on orders $195 or more [USA only - not applicable Internationally, sorry] Retail Finished Products ONLY - no ingredients

Some examples of our packaging:
Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope
This envelope is 12.5" wide and 9.5" tall. This is flat but can expand to hold a relatively good amount of finished products. Bulky items such as clays, waxes, butters, salts, etc. will limit this packaging option quite a bit.
Weight limit is 3 lbs.
Priority Mail Boxes
This box is is 11" wide x 8.5" high x 5.5" deep. This box will hold a lot of product. Bulky items are suggested for this box as it will keep them from possibly opening in transit.
Weight limit is 20 lbs.
If the above box is not big enough for you, we also have a larger flat rate box.
This box is 12" wide x `1" high x 5.5" deep. This box will hold a lot of product. Bulky items are suggested for this box as it will keep them from possibly opening in transit.
Weight limit is 20 lbs.
