Frequently Asked Questions


Please read carefully before ordering. 
Placing an order signifies you have read and agree to our terms and policies. We will not make exceptions to any of these policies. 

Due to increasing fraudulent activities, we have tightened security.  We are not responsible for delays in order processing due to declined credit cards. If your Billing Address – which includes Name, Street Number, Street Name, City, Province and Postal Code does not match exactly, your order will not process.  This is annoying, but it is for your protection as well as ours.

If your Billing information has a totally different name, and in a different state than your shipping address, we will more than likely refuse shipment and request a different form of payment.  If that is not provided the existing card will be credited and the order cancelled.

  • If you have a gift card (a store value card with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover it will not work as it is not linked to your address.

We sell 1 ounce and 4 ounce oils so you can test.  We encourage testing.  Fragrance Oils are manufactured to be USED in an application; not sniffed out of a bottle. You will never know how that oil will perform unless you test in your own applications. We suggest that you test them in products before calling us.  Fragrance oils will smell different in finished products than they do out of the bottle.

Fragrance Oils are not used for making lip balms.
Fragrance Oils are not used for vaping!

MOST OF our Fragrance Oils are packed by weight.  Not volume.  That means you might have a bottle that appears to be “fuller” than another bottle. Each oil is comprised of different raw materials and will weigh differently giving you a different fill line.  Some will look taller or shorter in the bottle depending on the weight of the oil.  Most citrus based oils will appear “fuller” in your bottles.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. We offer 1-ounce samples and 4-ounce tester oils you can test before buying larger quantities.  We do not accept returns on any products unless we have made a mistake when shipping.  Everyone has a different sense of smell.  We encourage you to try a one ounce sample or a 4 ounce oil before buying a larger size so you can sniff and test in your application to see if the scent is agreeable to you and your application as all sales are final. In order to maintain our high sanitary standards we regret that we are unable to accept returns on colorants or additives due to buyers’ remorse. This protects all of our customers from the possibility of contamination, and there are no exceptions to this policy.

  • We offer one ounce samples and 4 ounce oils to use as testers so you can test in your own application using your own supplies prior to purchasing a larger bottle. It is at your risk that you purchase a larger bottle without first testing. 
  • Our oils are considered a specialty item.  For sanitary reasons, once a package has been received, we can no longer vouch for the contents.  We cannot take products of any nature back and resell them; therefore, we do not accept product returns.  We do not offer any type of product exchanges. Please try 1 ounce or 4 ounce oils prior to purchasing a larger size.
  • There are no refunds for oils you simply do not like or don’t smell as you imagined it would.  We offer/sell 1 oz samples and 4 oz oils to test and sniff prior to buying larger bottles. 
  • THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR 1 OZ SAMPLES or 4 OZ OILS. These sizes are available for your testing prior to purchasing a larger volume.
  • Fragrances with the same name from different companies will more than likely smell different as we don’t purchase from the same manufacturers nor do we all purchase the same grade, or quality of fragrance oil.

Please remember that if you place a Preorder oil order it takes approximately 8-10 days to get to us from the day after the preorder ends, and then 1-2 days for us to bottle and package. We have no control over supplier and shipping delays! These are approximations, and it could take longer if there are delays. All In-Stock Oils ordered at the same time will be held, and ship with preorder oils. All orders over $200 Canadian (pre tax and after coupons) that are eligible for the free shipping option, will ship by courier where it is feasible, as some locations are not serviced by couriers, or are extremely remote. All Flat Rate Shipping will be shipped the most economical way. We can not control any delays in shipping, while we hope carriers get them to you quickly, this is simply out of our hands.

While we try our best to get Preorder oils to us as quickly as possible, there have been shipping delays at times which are beyond our control, especially in the busy season from September to December. If you have placed an order for Preorder Oils, and it is already enroute to us, we can not cancel the order. These oils have been purchased on your behalf, and paid for.


We are NOT responsible for boxes left on your porch or designated delivery area. Without a note on your order that you require a signature delivery, your order is subject to be left at your home, without notification that it has arrived.

It is at your risk or loss if your order is left without a signed delivery. There is an extra charge for signed deliveries!

Should you have a missing package that tracking says was delivered, call the shipping company immediately and make them aware a package is missing; perhaps the driver is still in the area. The company can call the driver and check with him immediately. The claims process can also get started and a trace can begin on your package.  Please note, a trace will prompt an investigation regarding the delivery.  It can take several business days to several weeks to get a response from the shipper.  The shipping company will then notify us. and we can complete the claim process.  If the tracking on a package shows delivered there not much we can do except put a trace on the box.  All reports of lost orders must be provided to us, within 48 hours of “delivery”.  If delivery confirmation has been provided by canada post, we are not responsible for any missing package or items from a package.

We pack each box tightly and securely. However, if you have damages in your order please contact the shipping carrier immediately. You MUST save your original packaging materials in order to file a claim. Proof of damages must be made to the carrier, so it is imperative all original packaging materials are saved.

COUPONS – All coupons unless stated may not be used in conjuction with any others, with exception to the HBBG member discount.

Thank you so much for your understanding. Open Box orders are not eligible for the over $200 free shipping due to the fact that there are several orders combined which adds to the paperwork, and preparation that has to be done.

SOCIAL MEDIA BULLYING – Threats and Intimidation – Reviews – Our Policies are listed for your protection as well as ours.  They are fair.  Not everyone purchases with good intentions. Internet fraud is out of control.  Bullying is out of control.  We only ask for a little kindness and patience.  If we have made a mistake, we will correct it. If you have made a mistake, we will try to find a reasonable solution.  There is no reason for any disagreement or challenge to become ugly or threatening.  With so many social media venues and online shopping, people are quick to jump on social media and make disparaging comments before there has been a chance to find a reasonable solution or many times before the company has even been notified. Screaming, yelling, cussing and being rude will not get anyone very far. Try a little kindness; we will reciprocate.

By doing Business with us you agree not to engage in the following:  Screaming, derogatory, racially charged comments, swearing or intimidating language when speaking by telephone or email; making false, disparaging or derogatory statements about the company or products or name calling for the sole purpose of harming the company. Generally, it is the person who wants us to change our policies to appease them; when we don’t change our policies, they tend to get nasty.  It must make people feel better to make ugly comments.  It is sad that bullying needs to be addressed. But there it is. We are big hearted people, and we work very hard to ensure orders are out promptly, if you have a question about your order, please be kind, and email our customer service email first on our contact page.

Please read carefully before ordering. Placing an order signifies you have read and agree to our policies.
