Returns & Refunds

Returns & Refunds - excluding Change of Mind
We offer Returns & Refunds in accordance with Australian Consumer Law. Please contact us and we will take every step to resolve the problem.

Returns & Refunds - Change of Mind
We have a 7 day “change of mind” policy. If you are not satisified with your order contact us to organise an exchange, refund or credit note. There are a few important points to note about a “change of mind” return:

- You may opt to recieve a store credit in the form of a gift card which will be valid for 12 months or a refund.

- A refund will attract a 1.75% (credit card) or 3.6% (paypal) handling fee, depending on your payment method.

- No change of mind returns on sale items or items ordered specifically for you.

- Please make sure both the box (where applicable) and bottle are in the same condition as when you received them.

- Shipping glass bottles is a delicate excercise. Please take extra precaution when packing the return bottles to ensure they arrive safely.
The sender assumes the risk of breakages during transit.

- Return freight is at your own cost.

- Refunds are issued once the return is received and inspected.- For a “change of mind” return, the refunded amount will be the bottle costs less the initial shipping cost.

- Additional postage costs will apply to exchanges.

- Refunds can take up to 14 days, although usually they are paid quicker.
