I ordered the Essentials Kit, and I want to drop one of the products and change quantities on the others, how do I do that?

To create a custom subscription, sign in to your account using the same email you used to create an account/place an order. Click on the link on the left that says “Manage Subscription”. Under the Manage column on the far left click the pull down arrow and select “Cancel Subscription” at the bottom. A pop up will appear, click OK. The next page will have a link back to the store to create a new subscription. Shop the store, check out and you’re set.

 

Can I change quantities?

Yes. You can do this in two ways by changing quantities of your subscription (this will change all your upcoming orders) or for individual orders.

Simply sign in to your account using the same email you used to create an account and click on the link says “Manage Subscription”. Look for the Manage heading and click the pull down arrow to select “Product (Qty)”. The items in your subscription order will appear and you can adjust the amounts. When you’re finished select Update. All future orders will reflect your change. To adjust the quantities on individual orders, select Subscription #1 and all your future orders will appear. You can click on orders and increase or decrease quantities here.

 

Can I add (or delete) products?

Yes. Sign in to your account using the same email you used to create an account and click on the link says “Manage Subscription”. Look for the Manage heading and click the pull down arrow to select “Product (Qty)”. The items in your subscription order will appear and you can delete a product from your subscription by clicking the trash can icon on the far right. When you’re finished select Update. All future orders will reflect your change.

 

Can I ship my order early (or later)?

Yes. Sign in to your account using the same email you used to create an account and click on the link says “Manage Subscription”. Look for the Manage heading and click the pull down arrow to select “Change upcoming order date”. Click on the calendar and select the date you would like your order to ship. Keep in mind all future orders will ship every 60 days using this new date.

Note: It may take up to 24 hrs for your order to process and 2 days until your order ships. Your order should arrive in about a week.

 

What if I run out before my next scheduled order arrives?

If you notice you are running low you can change your upcoming order date (see instructions above). You might consider adding a unit to your next order shipment so you have backup supply or increase the quantities on your subscription so with each shipment you receive more.

 

What if I have too much?

You can choose to skip a shipment, decrease the quantities on your next order or decrease the quantities on your subscription so with each shipment you receive less.

 

Can I skip shipments?

Once your order has shipped you will receive an email with a link to your tracking information. You can also sign in and select an order to find your tracking # and link.

 

Can I place a one time order?

We are a subscription based service that ships every 2 months. So, when if you place an order it becomes a subscription. However, you could place an order and after it ships sign in to your account and delete your subscription -- by thereby canceling all future orders.

 

Can I cancel my subscription?

Can I have multiple subscriptions under one account?

Yes. After placing your first order return to our store. When placing items in your cart (assuming you are signed in), click the “Subscribe” button instead of the “Add to existing subscription” button. Keep adding items in this manner and when ready, checkout. During checkout you will have the option to select a new address. This option works well for if you want to gift a subscription.

Yes! We use Shopify, Bold Commerce and Stripe to handle our cart functions and payment. To learn more about these companies, please see our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.


OUR PRODUCTS

Are your products organic?

Most of the organic, or certified organic labels and certifications were created for food and don’t work as well when it comes to personal care products. Instead of seeking these expensive labels, we’ve set our own high standards for our products and formulations. Read more on our Philosophy and Ingredients pages.

While many of our ingredients are certified organic some are not.Some ingredients like our essential oils, are grown without the use of man-made pesticides or fertilizers and are exactly the same as those labeled certified organic, just without the costly process of getting certified as organic. Others like the clays we use and our Trace Mineral and Fulvic Acid concentrate, are mined from purest sources.

 

Are your products Vegan? Paleo? Non GMO? Biodegradable?

Yes.

 

Where are your products made?

All of our products are Made in the USA. Our manufacturing partners also adhere to the highest quality standards and are ISO 9001, FDA and USDA Organic certified.


MINERAL TOOTHPASTE 

Is your toothpaste safe to swallow?

All of our ingredients are food grade, Non GMO and safe to ingest. However, essential oils while natural are a very potent substance and could bother sensitive individuals if consumed steadily for long periods of time. We recommend you consult your doctor before making a practice of swallowing our toothpaste.

 

What is the problem with ingredients like Fluoride, Glycerin, Foaming Agents, Guar gum, and naturals sweeteners?

Some ingredients found in commercial brands and even natural brands can be harmful. Others are unnecessary and provide no real benefits to your oral health. Check out Not So Good Ingredients in Natural Toothpastes and 7 Disturbing Facts About Chemicals in Personal Care Products to learn more.

 

What is the PH?

The PH of our toothpaste is right around 6.5

 

How abrasive is it?

The RDA is 93. Ideally formulated to remove stains while protecting and preserving tooth enamel.

What is RSPO Palm Oil?

RSPO Palm Oil = Sustainably grown. The RSPO was founded in 2005 to create a system for certifying sustainably grown palm oil, and to create guidelines of membership for certified growers. These guidelines cover more than just environmental stewardship; members of the RSPO must report on and provide better working conditions, better wages, and foster local discussions and input on their impact on local and native land. These principles and criteria for members of the RSPO help ensure that the certified palm oil is produced under legal, socially and environmentally responsible management. The World Wildlife Foundation has given the RSPO a thumbs up as a big step in the right direction for the production of palm oil in “providing assurance that valuable tropical forests have not been cleared, and social safeguards have been met during the oil’s production” of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil.

 

I have hard water. How can I reduce the effects of soap buildup especially in my hair?

Using a vinegar rinse will help to speed up the process of striping chemicals built up from using regular shampoos, while balancing your scalp pH and removing any soap build up.
