We have a 100% Customer Satisfaction Policy. Products can be returned within two weeks of receipt of shipment for a refund on the cost of goods (less shipping charges and applicable restock fee), if returned intact. Similarly, all returns must be received by us within 15 business days to qualify for a refund.
Please note that the following products are non-returnable, non-exchangeable, and non-refundable:
- All sample products (smallest sku size of the product, ie. 5 ml or 15 ml Essential Oil)
- Products on final sale or liquidation
- All drum size products of 180 kg or greater
- All unsealed organic products
All subjective returns (where there has been no mistake on the part of NDA) will be assessed a 20% restocking fee, or a minimum of $10, whichever is greater.
Returns authorized beyond the two-week period will be assessed a 30% restocking fee, or a minimum of $10, whichever is greater.
If an error has been made by us on a written order, we will gladly pay for re-shipment. All errors arising from miscommunication on verbal orders will be the sole responsibility of the customer and they will be accountable for return freight. Please submit orders in writing whenever possible.
All product returns require an authorization number. This R.A number must be clearly marked on the outside of the box. Boxes without this number may be refused at the cost of the shipper.
All US returns are to be sent to our Distribution Center as indicated in the Return Authorization instructions provided by our customer service staff and must be shipped by ground service only. The statement 'Goods Returning to Manufacturer' must be stated on all packages together with the Return Authorization Number. Refunds will only be processed after inspection and assessment has been completed by our QC Department.
All subjective returns must be returned unused and within 15 days. Due to storage conditions being outside of our control, there will be no exceptions to this policy. And since storage conditions are outside of our control, our retained samples will serve as the benchmark for quality related issues. In other words, if the retained samples have no quality issues, no returns will be considered after the 15 day period. If the returned merchandise is not received by us or if it is damaged, we are unable to issue a refund or credit. There is no refund on return freight.
If the cost of a returned item is $5 or less, a credit will be applied to the customer's account. There will be no refund or replacement for that product.
Refunds or credits for any reason can take up to 2 weeks to process, depending upon the volume of returns. From the date you receive our credit memo by email, refunds may take up to 8-10 business days for your financial institution to process before appearing on your statement.

As a wholesaler, we have a requirement of a minimum order to be able to function effectively. Our minimum order policy is $100 and on orders less than the minimum, an Administrative Fee of $20 will be applied. We truly regret any inconvenience that this may cause, but we trust that our valued customers will appreciate this as a necessary step to offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.
You may place your order on-line, by fax at 1-800-246-8207, or by phone at 1-800-246-7817.
We update our website on a daily basis. Due to the volatile nature of the essential oils market, our price commitment is limited to the date on which the order was placed.
At all times, prices are effective on the date of your order only. Discounts or coupons that were not valid on the date of your order, cannot be applied.
There is a Minimum Order Policy, which requires orders to be $100 or more. On all orders less than $100, an Administrative Fee of $20 will be applied.
Any orders over $5,000.00 must be paid by Wire Transfer, Certified Cheque, ACH or Direct Deposit.
Customers placing a first-time order over $500, with different billing and shipping address, using a Credit Card payment method, are required to fill out a Credit Card Authorization form, and send back a copy of the completed and signed form. This form is automatically sent to the customer by automated e-mail.
Customers placing a first-time personal order over $100, using Credit Card or Paypal payment method, must have the same billing and shipping address.
Please ensure that all orders are accurate prior to finalizing and submitting them online.
Once an order has been confirmed we will not accept any additions or deletions. Should you wish to have any item removed after the order has been packed, a restocking fee will be applied to cover the cost of removing the item(s) and repacking the order. The fee will be $10.00 or 20% of the cost of the items removed, whichever is the greater amount. Any additions will be treated as a new order with all applicable guidelines.
All orders must be checked immediately upon receipt so that any discrepancies may be addressed. In the event of an error, a photograph of the product with its label and lot number clearly showing should be immediately sent to email@example.com with your Order number.
2.Only one coupon will be accepted per order per household.
3. Coupons and special promotions can only be applied to orders made on the dates during which the coupon is in effect.

1. From time to time, we run special promotions on select products for limited periods of time. This could be based on various reasons including bulk discounts that we negotiated with our vendors or clearance discounts on discontinued items.
2. Please note that when Special Promotions discounts are in conjunction with any other discount, the maximum of all applicable promotions and discounts shall not exceed 10%.

1. All orders are prepaid; payments will be taken before an order is processed, packed and shipped.

1. Our default shipping agent is FedEx.
2. In all cases we pass on our heavily discounted rates to you, our customer. We do not operate our Shipping Department as a profit-making center. Please note that your shipping cost is calculated online with integrated Fed-Ex shipping modules, using annual negotiated discounted rates. These online shipping quotes are estimates based on weight and volume calculations. We reserve the right to change the shipping charges, but if this occurs, you will be contacted for approval before your order is processed.
3. All orders are shipped from our Central Warehouse in Canada. US orders are shuttled to our distribution center in Cheektowaga, N.Y. for further shipping with no additional expense to customers for brokerage or customs on standard shipments. Additional charges for exceptions made to standard shipments will be the responsibility of the customer.
4. New Directions Aromatics takes no responsibility for any losses, damages or delays that may occur. Similarly, we must be notified should additional insurance be required. Without notification we ship products without insurance. Please note that transporters often do not heat their trucks in winter, nor refrigerate them in summer. This will not harm the integrity of the product. Simply leave the product at room temperature for 24 hours before opening. Occasionally, stirring the product before use will be required to regain its consistency.
5. We currently do not require orders to be signed when delivered.
However should customers want the 'signature required' option, a fee of $10.00 will be charged by the carrier.
6. Additional Charges:
If you call the carrier to re-direct your parcel to another address, or if your address is input incorrectly or missing information, and requires the carrier to update the information, there will be a charge of between $10 and $15 that will be billed to the customer.
7. Alternative shipping methods are available on request; however, we take no responsibility for shipping that is arranged by our customers. This includes the following:
- Customers using their own shipping account
- Customers using their own courier
- Customers arranging for a third party to facilitate shipping.
Should a customer decide to handle their own shipping arrangements, we require that a WAIVER be signed. This ensures that we are not held responsible for any shipping issue outside of our control; similarly, in the event that we receive a shipping related invoice under these conditions, it will authorize us to process the customer's credit card.
Please note that in all instances where payment is required, a copy of the invoice will be forwarded with receipt for payment.
New Directions Aromatics takes no responsibility for any loss, damages, or delay that may occur. Similarly, we must be notified should additional insurance be required. Without such notification, we ship products without insurance.
8. Essential Oils are classified as Hazardous Goods when shipped by air. Because of this only ground shipments are available for essential oils. Express shipments (Air) are available for the rest of the products.
9. We notify our customers for out-of-stock items. If we do not hear back from them within 2 business days, their orders will be shipped as-is and the balance will be refunded to them by the original method of payment. Out-of-stock items are NOT automatically shipped later when the stock is replenished, but must be reordered at that time. Regular ordering policies will apply.
10. For environmental reasons, packing slips will not be shipped with any order. Customers are encouraged to use a copy of the emailed invoice as a packing slip instead.
11. IRS information is required because it reduces the chances that your shipment will be delayed during interstate transit. We fully understand your concern over disclosing this information, and we guarantee the confidentiality of your personal information. At the same time, we would like to recommend an option that protects your interests. Many consumers are now having their shipments sent directly to their place of work. This allows for a company's IRS Number to be used and in addition ensures FedEx does not leave the package unattended.
12. New Directions Aromatics will not be held responsible for refunding the cost of freight for Expedited or Express shipments or on any orders that are delayed for reasons outside of our control.
