*Our essential oil products are considered cosmetics and are therefore non-refundable. They should also be used within 45 days and stored within the packaging and/or a cool dark place.

TWO WAYS TO EXCHANGE

To exchange an item after receiving clearance from us, you can return your original item to us in one of two ways:

1) Simply repackage the item and mail it back to us with your own postage.

OR

2) We can send you a draft order for a return label. Once the label postage is paid, we'll email you the label to apply to your package and drop off at the post office.

In either case, once we receive the item we will ship out your replacement.

REPRINTS

Should your made-to-order apparel, journal, or gift product arrive damaged or broken, please contact us and we'll provide next steps for you to send us photos of the damage.

Once received, we'll go ahead and schedule your replacement order for processing.

To initiate a return or exchange, or if you have any questions, please send us an email at contacts@affirmtheword.org with your order number and we'd be happy to help.
