PRODUCT INFORMATION

Are your oils sold by weight or volume?

Our fragrance oils are sold by weight. Fill levels on different scents may vary based on the weight of the particular oil itself. Our bottles are filled to order on a calibrated digital scale.

Why are some of the bottle sizes 14oz & 15oz, instead of 16oz?

Some of our sizing is smaller than normal sizes, for example 14oz or 15oz on our larger size bottles. Since we fill by weight we actually can't fit the full 16oz in our bottles. You will notice another supplier who has the same bottles as us saying they are 16oz, but they sell by "fluid ounces" which is different than actual weight. If you weigh some of their lighter oils you will find out that they are actually in the 14-15oz net weight range. Our normal pricing has already been adjusted to compensate for the weight difference. We do recommend checking with the suppliers beforehand as we know for certain there is at least 3 suppliers who fill by fluid ounces instead of actually using the net weight of the contents.

Are your fragrance oils phthalate-free?

Not all of them are. This information can be found on each individual item page. Phthalate- Free oils can be found here https://www.naturesfragrance.com/phthalate-free/

Can I apply your fragrance oils directly to my skin?

No. Our fragrance oils are concentrated and should not be applied directly from the bottle to the skin.

Can your fragrance oils be used in reed diffusers?

Most of our oils can be used in reed diffusers, but must be mixed with a reed diffuser base (We do not sell the base). It is recommened to not use oils high in Vanillin or ones that have a lot of cinnamon because these ingredients may clog the reeds.

What is the best way to store fragrance oils?

It is best to store fragrances out of direct sunlight. A dark, cool cupboard or cabinet is ideal.

Do I need to transfer the fragrance oils to amber glass bottles?

Our bottles are UV resistant PET white plastic. Our bottles will help keep the fragrance oils fresh for a long period of time since no light can get to them. Also PET plastic doesn't leach chemicals like lower grade plastics, for example HDPE plastic that some suppliers use. PET plastic doesn't usually have that chemical plastic smell that lower grade plastics have. It is of course up to our customers if they want to transfer them, but there wouldn't be much added benefit.

What is the shelf life of fragrance oils?

When stored properly, out of direct sunlight and well sealed, fragrance oils have a shelf life of approximately one year.

How are your fragrance oils shipped?

Our fragrance oils are shipped in puncture resistant and UV resistant PET bottles. Our bottles include induction heat seals help prevent leaks. The bottles are then placed into poly bags as a last resort effort to stop any leakage if it occurs. All of our products are shipped in boxes "We do not ship any products in bubble mailers"

What is a Flash Point and what is it for?

Flash Point is the lowest temperature at which a liquid will generate enough vapor to ignite when exposed to a source of ignition such as a spark or flame. Flash Points are for shipping purposes and gel candle making. Gel candles require a fragrance oils to be non-polar and have over 170F Flash Point.

Are your fragrance oils all natural?

Most fragrance oils contain natural and synthetic ingredients.

My oil has crystallized, why?

Some fragrance oils with vanillin can crystallize even more so in colder temperatures. We are in Wisconsin where winters are pretty cold, not to mention your oil has likely been in a cold truck while on it's way to you. The oil gets cold and can separate. Your oil is not ruined. Just heat a pan of water, remove the pan from the heat and put the bottle of oil into the water. The oil will melt back to original form. Remove the bottle from the water and give it a good shake and it will be all good again.

What are Phthalates?

There are many types and classifications of Phthalates. As you may know, there are harmful Phthalates that are to be avoided and there are harmless Phthalates that are used in many products that we commonly use everyday. Unless it is listed in the description as Phthalate Free, then our fragrances have trace elements of the same harmless Phthalates that are used in these everyday products and makes our fragrances skin-safe for Bath and Body product usage. Phthalates used in fragrance oils, known as DEP (Diethyl Phthalate), are solvents used to extend the aromatic strength of the fragrance oil. DEP has been found to be non-toxic in skin products and candles if used at safe levels.

More information regarding Phthalates can be found here. https://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/ProductsIngredients/Ingredients/ucm128250.htm

Are your fragrance oils cruelty free?

Yes. None of our products are tested on animals.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES

What is your return policy?

Refund Policy:

Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis, but please keep the following in mind:

Shipping costs are nonrefundable, unless we have made an error.

Fragrance Oils are nonrefundable for safety reasons. We sell convenient 1oz bottles for testing purposes and we highly recommend trying a sample before purchasing a large quantity. If you receive a bottle that is damaged during shipment please contact us and we will correct the issue.

We do our best to describe things as accurately as possible, but everyone's nose is different, so there are occasions when one of my scents doesn't smell to someone, what it smells like to me or those who have smelled our scents in testing.

Clearance Merchandise is sold as is. We will not except returns on clearance items and it is nonrefundable.

Gift Certificates are nonrefundable.
