HOW CAN I PAY YOU?
I use paypal only to accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover & Debit Card payments. Once your payment is approved & Paypal notifies me of your payment your purchase will be made and shipped to you via USPS First Class Mail within 7-10 days unless you've requested and paid for a different method of shipping. A 6% tax will be added at checkout time for items shipped within Maryland.
PayPal payments by e-checks must clear before your order will be made and shipped. PayPal states that it may take up to 3-8 days for checks to clear.
Payment is due at the time of sale. Please contact me if you need more time. If your transaction has not been paid for and I have not been contacted within 48 hours, the sale or custom listing may be canceled.
Should you change your mind and want to cancel your purchase, please let me know via convo within 2 hours from the time you made the purchase and I will be happy to cancel it for you. I don’t want you buying anything you don’t really want.
All orders are processed in order of received payments. Orders are not processed until the transaction is paid in full. Delay in payment may result in extended processing and delivery time. Only after full payment has been received will I ship any goodies out.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?
Lip balms and other bath products which are sold in my shop are made with oils and butters and waxes which can be temperamental with the weather and they DO NOT like extreme heat or extreme cold. So please consider this when placing your order and be watching out for your delivery so that you can bring it indoors as soon as possible.
Should you receive your order and your items are a little soft or even melted, simply place them in a cool, dark place such as a refrigerator in their upright position and they should be as good as new within the hour. Also, please don’t leave your purchase in a hot car as it may melt. If you’ve done this, just follow the directions above and it should be as good as new.
HOW ARE THEY MADE AND PACKAGED?
All of my products are handmade by me at the time of order especially for you with skin loving and nourishing butters and oils and are blended by hand in small batches for superior freshness and quality control then poured by hand into eco-friendly packaging. Your item may come with a T-Banded shrink wrap so that you can remove it from the lid only which will keep your label shiny and pretty and then lovingly packaged and put into a new padded bubble envelope and shipped off to you for you to ENJOY. I want my customers to feel like they are getting a present when they receive an order from ForGoodnessGrape so special attention is given to the adorable packaging you will receive.
Most all of my lip balms are sweetened with all natural stevia with the exception of my Lip Essentials/Naturals which are naturally sweet from the essential oil used to make it. Lip Essentials are 100% natural and nothing synthetic. I list all of the ingredients in each product on the picture of the label so please do read that prior to placing an order to ensure that there is nothing contained in them that you may be allergic or sensitive to. My main goal here is to make you look & feel GRAPE!
WHAT ABOUT ALLERGIES?
All product ingredients can be found in my label pictures. Please read them carefully if you have any allergies. SHEA BUTTER and PISTACHIO BUTTER should not be used by people who have nut allergies. Anything containing GINGER OR ROSEMARY should not be used by pregnant women. If ordering a product containing an essential oil please be aware that you can benefit greatly from them but there are certain cases where you shouldn't use them. Please be aware of this before ordering.
WHAT ABOUT ESSENTIAL OILS?
There are some essential oils that may cause negative effects to pregnant and nursing mothers. Here are some that are known offenders. These do not apply to all but it's better to safe than sorry:
I do have a lot of these oils but at this time only the * are in a couple of my offerings.

PLEASE BE KIND AND RECYCLE YOUR PACKAGING!
Your goodies will arrive neatly wrapped and labeled. For boxes and packing materials I use only new packaging since these are products that could be contaminated with recycled packaging. But please be kind to the Earth and feel free to reuse anything I send to you!
I’M COLOR CODING FOR YOU AND ME!
At this time I am color coding the tubes for my products so that both you and I don’t mix up lip products and perfumes. Yuck, I don’t want to put perfume on my lips and I know you don’t either so this quick efficient system that should help to keep that from happening with the items you purchase from ForGoodnessGrape. I use clear natural and white tubes and caps for my lip products and I use black and silver tubes and caps for fragranced and perfumed items.
SUPPLY AND DEMAND!
Should an item not be very popular and not sell as expected it will not be made again unless ordered via “Custom Listing”. So if you’ve purchased something in the past and you don’t see it now, please convo me and I’ll make a custom listing for you.
