Shipping & Returns
Where do you ship?
We ship our products globally.
Once I've purchased my order, how long will it take to receive it?
Essentials by Nature orders are processed and shipped out within 7-10 business days. Orders are shipped during business days only, Monday-Friday. Orders will not be shipped on the weekend or statutory holidays.
All International/US orders ship through Canada Post. The time frame can vary depending on customs, but it usually takes between 10-28+ business days to arrive. Often international orders get held up at customs for a few days and this may lengthen the delivery time.
Can I change or cancel my order once I have put it through?
We do not change or cancel orders once they have been processed. If you have a question or concern about your order, please send us an email with your order number, reason for the change/cancellation and we can look into it for you if it's been less than 24 hours.
There will be NO refunds for shipping given if you missed using a promotional code.
What should I do if my order arrives and the products are damaged?
Essentials by Nature reserves the right to deny the replacement of damaged products based on the product. We will only credit/replace the damaged item(s) but not the entire order.
To begin the process, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 7 days of the order being received and include your order number, which products were damaged, and photos of the damaged product.
What if my order doesn't arrive?
When your order is ready for shipment, you will receive an email with the tracking number for your order. Please note that we have no control over transit times. During shipment, we can only see your tracking number page. Essentials by Nature is not liable for packages that are delayed or lost during the shipping process. You will have to file a claim with the shipping carrier.
