It was a sunny day on June 26th, back in 2011, that Vetiver Aromatics made its very first sale. That's almost three years ago! In celebration of this momentous occasion, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders (not just those over $100 like usual) from now through June 26th for all orders placed within the United States.
Here's to many more years of business!
If you are an international customer, you may be stuck with additional charges when your package arrives in your country. Why? IMPORT TAXES. But never fear, these taxes do not have to come as a surprise. For you see, I have found this nifty calculator you can use to determine how much you will be charged.
I've been playing with it for a while, and it looks pretty handy. The calculator has been added to the shopping cart, as well as the FAQ page and the Shipping Policies page. Hopefully this will clear up much of the confusion, and alleviate much of the trepidation, faced by international customers.
With the holidays fast approaching, timeliness of orders is becoming ever so important. So, I've put together this guide to when stuff is fulfilled, when it ships, and when you can expect to get it. As a general rule, orders are processed the day after they are placed, and then shipped the following day. Why the following day? Because USPS does their pickup here at around 10 am.
I have occasional part-time help, but generally most orders are filled by me. Here's how it works: By about 10 am every morning, I print out the orders that are waiting for me, and start packing and filling. By the end of the day, I've boxed them all up, printed the labels, and set them out for the post office to pick up the following morning. So, if you place an order after 9am on Monday, It'll be in the queue to be printed and filled on Tuesday, then go out in Wednesday's mail....Give or take a day. If I finish filling orders and it's only 1pm, I'll check for more orders and fill those the same day. Or if it gets to be 5pm and I'm not finished with the day's orders, some will get filled the following day. Hence the "ORDERS ARE USUALLY FILLED WITHIN 1-3 BUSINESS DAYS."
That process can be sped up if you need a rush delivery. I can personally take your package to the post office on the same day I fill it, thus shaving a day off your wait. And if your order is placed early in the day, I can fill it AND take it to the post office on the same day you place the order, thus shaving two days off your wait. Possibly three days, if it's a busy time of year. Like Christmas. However, taking time out of my day to make a trip to the post office takes time....so there is a $10 rush order fee to cover that extra effort on my part. Note that this does not change the amount of time the post office takes to deliver your package after it leaves my hands. For that you have to upgrade to Express Mail.
One the package is on its way, the time to delivery depends on the type of postage you bought. First Class? 3 days. Priority? 2 days. Express? 1 day.
Now, these are all business days. I work Monday - Friday. The US Post office delivers Monday - Saturday. Here's a handy chart. The first column is the day you placed your order. The second column is the day it will probably arrive if you chose Priority shipping. The third is for Express shipping.
Need it even faster? That's where the rush shipping add-on comes in. International? Add a week to the estimate.

Our new perfume kit gift sets are now available, and just in time for Valentine's Day!
What distinguishes these sets from the others is that they are particularly designed to be given as gifts - they are packaged with flower petal fillers, organza bows, and contain multiple high quality glass perfume bottles for holding the end product. They also differ in that these kits offer perfumer's alcohol as the perfume base, rather than fractionated coconut oil, as the other perfume kits do.
This beautifully packaged perfume gift set comes with three perfume bottles for storing your final perfume creations – a red metal shell atomizer, a 30ml glass bottle, and an adorable heart-shaped travel bottle with a red tassel. Choose between three fragrance blends: efflorescent, verdant, and gourmand. Each perfume kit contains 8 1/8oz vials of fragrance for making your own perfume - just enough to fill the three bottles.
The kit contents rest on a bed of dried rose petals contained inside a gift quality red kraft jewelry box, wrapped in an organza bow -a perfectly presented gift for that creative woman in your life!
