All orders must be placed through the web site. This streamlines the process and prevents any miscommunication. The ordering system does not require you to use a credit card online if you are not comfortable doing so, and the number may be called in to our offices during our business hours. The checkout also allows for money order payment for those who prefer that method.
In order to keep our prices low and maintain our superior level of service we no longer accept orders by telephone. We are still here to answer questions and for those who wish to call in credit card information, however our staff can no longer accept entire orders by phone (this does not apply to special order items that cannot be ordered online).
SUPPLIES - We sell only top quality merchandise and stand behind our products. We have a very liberal return policy and try to go the extra mile to satisfy our customers. This includes returns of wicking that is unsuitable and scent oils that do not meet your expectations. Please contact our sales department before sending any returns.
- Non Defective Products - If a product is not as expected, ordered by mistake, or otherwise unsuitable for your needs it may be returned for a refund. Note that non defective products must be returned in new, salable condition, in the original packaging where applicable, and shipping costs are non refundable.

PRODUCT SUITABILITY: If you have any questions about our products and how suitable they are for your purposes or for use with each other (for example: bag size, stick size, insert size, etc...) please contact our sales department. We guarantee that your order will be complete and accurate. We cannot guarantee that your order will be what you thought you needed unless you ask first.
We offer free expert technical support and help to our customers. Please note that most of our products are manufacturing grade and repackaged from industrial quantities. This means that most do not include instructions or fancy packaging. Instructions for use of our products are available free in our project and instruction area.
We have a nine dollar and seventy cent (9.70) minimum order. The software will not accept orders that do not meet this minimum. This allows us to keep costs down, and prices low.
