What is the difference between Aromatherapy, Natural and Organic oil?
We find this is a question that far too many people don't even know to ask, before buying their products and instead they are looking at price alone. To keep it very short and simple, Aromatherapy oils are by far the cheapest, as they are made in a lab. Natural oils are as they say, Natural, but they are farmed by using pesticides and treating the soil to assist with growth and protecting their plants, so they can also have a far greater yield. Organic Certified oils on the other hand is the very best you can get from Mother Nature, which is why we only sell Organic Certified oils to our trade market. It is only Organic if you have certificates to prove the authenticity thereof, to which we do, which is why we put emphasis on the fact that our oils are Certified Organic. For an oil to be Certified Organic, the farmer of the plant has to be inspected regularly and soil and plant samples are tested for any treatments or pesticides. The farmer also pays for this license yearly which doesn't come cheap and to add to this, the farmer will get a much smaller yield each season which adds even more to the cost of the products, which at the end of the day adds to the price of our Certified Organic oils, but with these oils, you know you are getting the very best Mother Nature has to offer.
What is your returns policy, and is there a cost involved?
Yes, we have a 100% refund policy. If you’re not satisfied with your order you can return it within 7 working days, and we will refund you excluding the original cost of the shipping (R70). We can arrange the shipping for you if you’d like. What we’ll do is arrange for one of our courier affiliates to collect it and return it back to our offices. They will bring a flyer bag with them. If the item doesn’t fit into a flyer bag we ask if you could please pack it into the smallest box possible. You would be notified by mail and kept up to date as to when they will be collecting.
Can I exchange my item?
Yes you can exchange your item within 7 working days of receipt however, the shipping cost will be charged to you. It is a flat rate of R79 which is below the actual cost so we subsidize some of it but unfortunately, we can’t cover the entire cost.
Processing of returns, including acknowledgement of receipt of return form submitted, collection of the return and delivery to Be Natural can take up to 7 business days from date of submission.
