TO PLACE AN INTERNATIONAL ORDER
Please follow the steps below to create a new membership account and/or to place an order outside of Canada or the U.S. The minimum order for International Orders is US$1000, and Wire Transfer is the only accepted method of payment. (Air Freight is expensive and DG Documentation + Special Packaging are both required for items classified as Dangerous Goods (DG), which incur additional costs.) Therefore, in most cases, Ocean Freight would be the ideal option, and the transit time can take between 4-6 weeks.
All International Orders must be placed on our USA website, where the products are sold in Imperial Units and prices are in US currency. To convert from Imperial to Metric please click here: http://www.worldwidemetric.com/measurements.html

AFTER PLACING YOUR INTERNATIONAL ORDER
Essential Oils and Fragrant Oils are considered to be Dangerous Goods (DG) when shipped by air. To ship these items by air, they would need to be shipped with appropriate DG packaging and DG documentation. These would incur additional costs.
For small parcels up to a maximum of 15 Kg per box (non DG items only ), Canada Post is an option for surface mail or air mail and your shipping quote will be provided once the order is confirmed.
ESTIMATED IN-TRANSIT TIMES for Canada Post:
- Surface Mail: 6-8 weeks
- Air Mail: 10-12 business days
Customs & Duties are the responsibility of the Customer.
Insurance: Freight insurance is strongly recommended and can be requested while placing the order. If the insurance is declined, any damages or losses incurred will be the sole responsibility of the Customer.
NOTE: We require an international shipping waiver to be signed. Please sign the NON-CONTINENTIAL SHIPPING WAIVER and email us the signed copy (email@example.com)
