We are experiencing high sales volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are still answering our phones, and accepting/processing orders.
Due to the high volume of sales we are experiencing a 2-1/2 to 3 week delay in shipping times. Please only order if you are okay with this shipping schedule. Our staff is working HARD to fill orders as quickly as possible, but with a shelter in place in order from our governor, we are having to comply to state guidelines.
We are currently shipping most orders from July 17th. Some orders are shipping faster if they had no made to order and are very small. You will receive an email notice that your order is in progress if your order qualifies for the quick ship program.
If your order date is listed above, we can no longer change or add items, nor can they be canceled. For order dates not yet listed above, they still may also not be cancellable as we are picking through orders that can be quick-shipped. Please call if you need to change your order, emails are not a highly effective way of communication due to short staff to comply with current state guidelines under the COVID-19 "essential business" rules.
Terms and Conditions
Order Cancellation, Additions & Changes
Because each item within your order is hand-packed or made fresh just for you, orders that are canceled after they have gone to fulfillment will incur a 20% cancellation fee. To request a cancellation of a current pending shipment order, please email email@example.com. If your order hasn't been put into the fulfillment center, no charge will be incurred. Orders cannot be canceled once they have gone to our shipping center. Our website will send an order confirmation to the e-mail account that you provide us at checkout. Please take a moment to verify that all the information you have sent us, is correct. Your order will be shipped to the exact address you provided us, so if you made an error … please take a moment to let us know.
If your box is returned back to us as undeliverable, we will contact you to collect the correct shipping address and re-bill you for the shipping fees. FedEx and USPS both require new postage to be affixed to the re-shipped box, this will be covered at the customer's expense. If you decide you do not want the box re-shipped to you, the product total will be issued back to your payment method less a 25% restocking fee to cover administrative expenses. No shipping fees will be reimbursed, as they have already been "used up" when the box was originally shipped.
Our current date we are shipping from is always posted on the homepage of our website. We ship orders by the date series as they come in. Please do not ask us to "quick ship" items ahead of others who have been patiently waiting. Doing this actually slows down our internal packing systems, and makes those waiting … wait even longer. An email containing tracking information will be sent to you once your package(s) have been shipped. If you receive more than one tracking e-mail, this most likely means you have more than one box coming, so please save all of them. Instructions are provided within these e-mails on how to track your box(es) as they move through the carrier's system.
You can view your shipping costs before confirming your order. Some items cannot be shipped by US mail either because of their size or their "flashpoint" of the product. Those products have to be shipped by FedEx. Our cart is super smart and will know how to ship your items the safest way possible. We mention this because FedEx ground is sometimes not the fastest form of shipping, however, its the only way some items can be shipped. We ship from Oregon, so transit times will vary depending upon how far you live from us. The information is provided below so you will have an estimated idea of arrival times once your parcel has shipped:
If you are a U.S. Customer or live within a U.S. Occupied Territory: US Priority Mail is generally received within 2-3 business days after the parcel has been released into the hands of the US Postal System. They do not guarantee their delivery times, but in our experience, they do a decent job of meeting their target delivery dates. US military bases who are located outside of the US: The above information applies, except that your parcel will be delivered by the US Postal Service within 2-3 business days to the military, who will then forward the shipment to you based on their timeframe.
FedEx Shipments: Once your parcel has been released into the FedEx system, your delivery times will be as follows, based on the map below:
Hot Pink (West Coast): Delivers the next business day Light Blue: 2 business days Orange: 3 business days Green: 4 business days Magenta (East Coast): 5 business days
International Customers: We ship international shipments by FedEx. Delivery time is based on the speed you select at checkout. Please note that all custom/brokerage fees are the customer's responsibility, based on whatever your country will charge.
Damaged Freight / Lost Packages
Although every effort is made to ensure a safe delivery, sometimes an order is damaged during shipment. We want to know if something arrives to you in a damaged condition. To begin the process, we will require that you take pictures of the damaged product(s), and box material if relevant. These pictures can be taken from a cell phone and texted to: 971-888-0279 (please include your invoice number in the body of the text). This phone is a text-only center, and messages left there will not be returned, if you need to contact us about your damage claim, please use our customer service number located at the top of our website.
You may also e-mail your damaged freight pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your invoice number and the name that the order was placed on, and do provide us with as much detail that relates to the products damaged. Organic Creations reserves the right to issues partial credits/re-sends based on the level of damage.
Lost packages at the hands of a carrier are indeed a bummer. We get that! As the shipper, we are not responsible for parcels that we have correctly shipped. If your parcel becomes lost, please email us and we will contact the carrier to open a claim. Ultimately, however, it is the carrier's decision on they wish to handle the claim. If they accept responsibility, we will work out the details on getting a new shipment to you. If they do not accept responsibility, this issue is between you and the carrier. Organic Creations does not provide refunds, credits or resends on parcels that were correctly shipped from our facility without the carrier accepting responsibility. If you are worried about this topic, it is our suggestion that you select FedEx at checkout. They are very good at tracing lost parcels. USPS typically accepts no responsibility or liability, so though their shipping is cheaper, it is certainly riskier.
Returns and/or Incorrect Items Shipped
Because of the nature of the products we sell, we do not accept returns for any reason unless it was a packaging error on our part. If you received an incorrectly issued item, please contact us right away at barb@organic-creations. com with as much detail as possible to facilitate our internal processes of correcting this issue for you. Items that are mailed back to us without receiving a proper Return Authorization number from Organic Creations will be discarded and a refund will not be granted. All returns, incorrectly shipped items or items not received need to be worked out within 30 days of receiving your parcel according to shipper's delivery date.
Back Orders / Discontinued Items
We strive to keep our inventory "in stock" at all times. However, from time to time we do run into product shortages. If this happens to an item you ordered, we will notify you of the shortage with a backorder notice placed inside your box that contains the balance of your shipment. If the product on backorder is due to our warehouse within a week's time of your initial shipment, we will ship that backordered item at our expense as soon as it has been received to our warehouse. A separate tracking e-mail will be generated and sent to you. If one item constitutes as your whole order, and that one item is out of stock we will e-mail you with the option of a backorder or a full refund.
Backordered or discontinued items that cannot be shipped within one week of your initial shipment leaving our facility will be immediately credited back to your payment method with any unused shipping fees.
For orders shipped within the connected 48 states, you will receive your essential oils packaged in glass up to the 16oz. size. Sizes beyond that are shipped in plastic, for safety reasons. Orders outside of the connected 48 states, all bottles no matter their contents will be shipped in plastic. Fragrance oils are always packaged in plastic.
Our bottles are filled by volume, not by weight. This means if you order a 16oz. bottle of product, you will receive a 16oz. bottle filled to normal capacity based on the size of the bottle. If you need to know the weight of the product inside the bottle - please work out those details by either phone, chat program, or email. We will be happy to give you the product weight.
Products filled into jars, or baggies are filled by weight of product.
When placing an order through our website, by phone or email you are agreeing that our packaging terms are acceptable to your needs.

Please be aware that when purchasing certified organic botanical and herbs, they can be subject to insect infestation. Largely this is due to how certified organic crops have to be handled.
Conventional (or not organic herbs) are typically irradiated with low doses of radiation which kills larva, bacteria and any current infestation. Certified organic herbs cannot be exposed to radiation and the NOP provides very few methods of cleaning botanicals, typically mild soap and water which does little to reduce natural infestation.
Because of the non-invasive methods used in organic farming, it is expected that your product may not stay pest free. The product sent to you should be pest free from visible growth, but that may change with time. We always recommend freezing your herbs which help reduce this issue. Never store herbs in a warm location and when possible, transfer them into Tupperware like containers.
If your product is found to contain pests within 30 days of purchase, please send us pictures by email. We will gladly work out the details of a refund. Anything past 30 days is beyond our policy guidelines and is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. We are only liable for the cost of the infested product, no other expenses will be honored.
