Frequently Asked Questions
Can you create a dupe for another fragrance?
Unfortunately, I am not practiced in creating duplicates of existing scents. My area of practice is within creating original scents. While I am happy to create a scent that has similar notes to another, it will still be its own unique blend and not a duplicate.
I'm looking for a scent/herb/oil you don't have listed.
I am constantly growing my inventory. If you have a specific scent note, herb, etc that you'd like to include in a custom order but it isn't listed, please feel free to send me a message! I can often source it and then you can place your order once it's added.
I want a custom item but I'd like to try it first. Do you offer samples of custom blends?
At this time I do not have the ability to offer samples of custom items. Custom items require a lot of both time and supplies. It normally takes a minimum of an hour to custom blend a new scent and I often go through 4-5 blends tweaking the notes before I'm happy with the results. I strive to only ship my customers items I'm truly proud of.
Samples would be too expensive to be worth it if I charged enough to cover time and supplies. If you want to test your creation before spending a lot, I would highly recommend trying your blend out in the form of a 10ml oil rollerball. They are the most cost-effective options I offer.
Are your products vegan and/or cruelty free?
All of my essential oils, absolutes, herbs, and carrier oils are cruelty free (and vegan by nature, aside from beeswax and honey).
All of my synthetic fragrance oil suppliers are cruelty free.
The difficulty comes in when it comes to synthetic fragrance oils and their ingredients. Manufacturers sell to wholesalers, which is where I purchase from. Unfortunately, manufacturers don't disclose ingredients to the wholesalers. Because of this, I can't verify vegan status on most of them (out of my five main fragrance oil suppliers, two verify vegan status). This doesn't mean that they *do* contain animal products, but I can't be sure they don't.
So essentially, all of my natural products (essential oils, carrier oils, absolutes, herbs) are verified cruelty free and vegan. However, I can't say for certain either way when it comes to synthetics. We only buy and carry synthetic versions of animal derived ingredients (like musks and ambergris).
