Sacred Medicine Sanctuary tries to accommodate the shipping requirements of both domestic and foreign visitors to the site. To the extent possible, we prefer to ship by FedEx so as to have the benefit of insurance and avoid the risk of irradiation of shipments.
Media Mail: for books and recorded material, do not select this rate for other items
First Class: for very light weight boxes, usually single items
Priority Mail: for small shipments requiring delivery within 2-3 days
Ground: usually overnight to Washington and Oregon, two days to California, and a week to the East Coast
Super Saver: guaranteed within three business days
Two Day: delivered in two business days for orders placed by 11 am Pacific Time
Overnight: orders must be received by 11 am so that requests for service can be placed
We try to meet all customs requirements of the recipient, but ultimate responsibility for determining the relevant regulations for each country rests with the purchaser. We cannot ship herbs to Austria or Russia. People in those countries who wish our products should arrange delivery through another EU country, such as England or Holland.
Customs duties are to be paid by the recipient. If there are any questions at all about foreign shipments, please contact Sacred Medicine before submitting your order.
These orders are sent without insurance and usually take 4-7 days. We will not take the risk of shipping larger orders by post.
We use International Priority. It is sometimes overnight to places like London and even Tokyo but it can also take a week. Rates vary tremendously, not just country to country but rural areas can be astronomically higher than large metropolitan delivery addresses. In most cases, shipments are cleared through customs from computers on the planes so delivery can be very quick, but if shipments do get tangled up in customs, delays of several days can occur.
Basically, we make every effort to ship what is requested. If we happen to ship the wrong item, we will replace it without charge. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any returns if the original order was sent out via post. Naturally, we do not accept returns via post either. This is for the protection of our customers who have every right to expect that precautions were taken against irradiation.
