SHIPPING

* Important: If your order will be delivered outside the U.S., it may incur duty/taxes/fees from customs. Payment is the responsibility of the recipient—it is not included in the shipping charge. Package delivery may be delayed due to customs processing.

** Important: Your order will be processed during our normal business hours, which are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Mountain Time, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Our goal is to ship it within 1 to 2 business days of receiving it. For faster delivery, select a faster shipping method. Delivery times stated below do not include time to prepare and ship your order. May 2021 Note: US Mail is still experiencing delays, sometimes significant. FedEx has been consistently delivering plus or minus two days of the estimated delivery day.

If delivery of your order is late
Since March of 2020, it has become more common for packages to be delivered later than the estimated times. If your package is late, try the following:

1) Track your package using the information in the email message sent to you when your order was shipped. If the results indicate your order has been delivered, try the following—
Ask other people in your household if they brought the package into the house.
Look around the door where the package would most likely be delivered.
Ask your neighbors if your package was left with them. (FedEx may do this.)

2) If tracking results indicate your order is late or has been delivered, but you are unable to find it, call Fed Ex or your local Post Office. These resources will best be able to help you. Be ready to share your tracking number. 

3) If the above suggestions are unproductive, please contact us at 1-800-545-9309 (U.S. & Canada), or send us an email at orders(@)alaskanessences.com.
