We guarantee freshness of all our custom blends! Each blend is made when ordered so that they arrive fresh and ready for your use or own custom packaging. Because we make our blends to order, please allow 7 additional days for shipping. This additional time is required to mix herbs and ensure the infusion of pure essential oils have been absorbed evenly before sealing up for shipment. To avoid disappointment we suggest ordering early for seasonal holidays as this is when our custom blends are most in demand and deplete our inventory.
