How much of the mineral soak should I add to my bath?
our 16 oz bottle of SEa mineral soak should last 4-6 baths (approximately 2 - 4 oz per bath.) you may use more or less of the soak per bath depending on your preference.
How much charcoal mask should I use?
you should use approximately 1 tsp of the charcoal/clay powder per mask, mixing with 1-2 tsp of liquid of your choice (try water, green tea, honey, olive oil, etc.) you may like to add slightly more or less, but using 1 tsp per mask will give you about 12 applications per jar.
Why are there imperfections in my candle?
our candles are hand-poured and our scents are created with essential oils instead of artificial fragrances. for these reasons, you may notice imperfections in your candle. don't panic, your candle is fine, we like to think it's the imperfections that make them unique.

within Canada, our shipping rate is a $15 flat rate per order, and we ship via canada post. Canadian orders over $75 will receive free shipping.
orders shipping to the united states will be charged a $30 flat rate per order, and we ship via fedex.
because our products are packaged in glass instead of plastic, they may weigh more than traditional beauty and wellness products, and thus shipping may seem slightly higher than expected (a small price to pay for a world with less plastic waste.) we are always trying to improve our service, and do our best to provide shipping at a reasonable cost.
