  4. All product returns require an authorization number. This R.A number must be clearly marked on the outside of the box. Boxes without this number may be refused at the cost of the shipper.
  5. All returns are to be sent to our Canadian Distribution Center for assessment. The statement 'Goods Returning to Manufacturer' must be stated on all packages. All returns must be shipped by ground Postal Service to avoid any customs and brokerage charges. If returned by any other shipping method, customers will be responsible for those charges.

    4. We currently have $50 minimum order on Bulk essential oils and carrier oils.
    5. Once an order has been confirmed we will not accept any additions or deletions.

If this occurs you will be contacted for approval before your order is processed.

        3. Customers arranging for a third party to facilitate shipping.
        4. Should a customer decide to handle their own shipping arrangements, we require that a WAIVER be signed.

      8. Please note that in all instances where payment is required, a copy of the invoice will be forwarded with receipt for payment.
      9. Some Essential Oils are classified as Hazardous Goods when shipped by air. Because of this only ground shipments are available for essential oils. Express shipments (Air) are available at cost on bottles and raw materials.

This denotes that Alypsis Inc. will not be responsible for any loss, damage or delays that may result when shipping outside Canada. Please note the following conditions will apply:
        1. Orders that are shipped by Canada Post may take between 4 to 6 weeks or longer depending on the season, distance to travel or volume done by Canada Post. We can have orders shipped by air with Purolator, however all oils will be excluded due to their high flash points.
        2. Payment for all non-continental orders must be made by WIRE TRANSFER.
        3. In the event of dispute, Alypsis Inc. will be released of all responsibility once proof of shipping has been produced.
