We offer a 14 day money return policy on all orders. After receiving the shipment the buyer has to contact us within 14 days. Refunds will be given as money back or replacement. The return shipping costs will be paid by the buyer. The item needs to be returned in its original and unopened condition in order to receive a refund. Some products may dry out or go bad over extended periods of time and whilst in transit, diminishing their value. In such cases, we will evaluate refunds on a case-by-case basis, but we cannot fully refund these returned orders. All refunds will be paid within 14 days. Shipping costs for returned orders are the responsibility of the buyer.

If you decide you want to cancel your order once it has been shipped, you may refuse it upon delivery. If you have already received your package, do NOT ship it back until we have communicated instructions as to if and how you may do so. In principal, all sales are final, although we strive to find a mutually acceptable solution when issues arise.

You can expect to receive a used box when your order is shipped out, as we have deals with local shops to re-use their boxes. Our products are professionally packed in re-usable tins and plastic bags. We hope you re-use these materials. We try to minimise waste as much as possible.

Plastics and paper are picked up for recycling and all the plant material goes in our garden. As we are aware that shipping these sacred plants across the globe costs energy we try to keep the weight of the parcels as low as we can.

And of course we plant more sacred plants than we harvest.

You can expect your order to be packed in a mailbox, envelope or a bigger box with no reference to our website. Only carrying the obligatory things as addressee and sender. Basically it is just a very normal parcel which will draw no attention.

Each order is packed the way we would like to receive it ourselves. With love and extra blessings for safe travels.

Most likely we do. However not all products to every country due to legislation of some of those countries. Check the product to see if we ship your favourite one to your country.
We have many happy customers in the US, Canada, Australia and throughout Europe and Asia. We send every order with extra blessings for safe and smooth shipping.

Please keep in mind that customs of some countries such as South Africa, Israel, Iceland and a few others can delay the orders.

We offer two types of shipping

  1. REGISTERED: This comes with tracking and is much faster than our Free shipping.
  2. FREE SHIPPING: For this service no tracking is available. It tends to be half as quick as the registered shipping.

But hey, … if you’re not in a hurry and tracking is not important please feel free to use our reliable free shipping option.

Good to know

  • All your orders are packed and shipped discreetly with only the obligatory information such as shipping and return address on the outside.
  • Registered orders outside of Europe are sent with Postnl, a solid partner who hands your order over to the national postal company of your country. For instance in the US it will be USPS.
  • Registered orders within Europe are sent with DPD. Fast and trackable at all time.
  • Our Free shipping option is slow(er) but very reliable too. Estimated shipping time for outside Europe is between two to four weeks depending on postal flows.
  • For valuable orders we would advise the Registered option.

Of course it is possible to pick up an order in our warehouse in Haarlem, The Netherlands. We don’t have a shop, so you will have to make your order online. Pick-up can only be done by appointment.

The majority arrives within 10 days, but due to normal customs procedures and postal service schedules they can take up to 4 weeks outside Europe.We also offer REGISTERED shipping. These shippings are trackable and tend to be delivered faster than our free shipping.

EUROPE – Registered shipping
We use DPD within Europe (except for Greece, Norway and Switzerland). DPD ships fast, very reliable and over the road with trucks.

REST OF THE WORLD – Registered shipping
For countries outside of the EU we use PostNL for registered shipping. We advise you to keep the weight below 2kg to have it travel quickly.

Sure, we are happy to serve you with bigger quantities.

We are grateful that we may serve many healers, apprentices and communities in the US, Europe, Asia, Canada and Australia.
And we will happily inform you about our bulk packaging and pricing.

Our wholesale minimum order starts at 500 EURO. Please fill out the form here to request more information. Once we receive your inquiry we will contact you in 24-48 hours to find out how we can best meet your needs.

You must be 18 years of age or older to place an order. We assume each completed order to be in compliance with this term.
