GET IN TOUCH
Are your offerings Vegan and Cruelty-Free?
All of our products are Vegan friendly and cruelty free. This means they contain no animal ingredients, no animal derived ingredients or by-products.
We do not test on animals.
Are your products natural and organic?
The utmost care and a great amount of research has been undertaken to ensure our ingredients are of a superior standard, either grown here on our property or from ethical, reputable and sustainable sources. We use pristine plant essences, potent organic and wildcrafted herbs and pure essential oils of exceptional quality. Where possible, we have selected bio-dynamic and Australian Certified Organic elements in addition to Cold Pressed + Virgin oils for maximum purity and efficacy.
All of our offerings are free from palm oil, petrochemicals, mineral oils, parabens, PEG's, sulfates, phthalates, glycols + diglycols, artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, urea, silicones and GMO's,
All offerings are crafted with care and intention from our own proprietary formulas in our solar powered Tasmanian studio and filled by hand; no pre-made base formulas, fillers, laboratories or short-cuts are employed.
I have sensitive skin, can I use your products?
Skin sensitivities can be unpredictable and skin chemistry varies from person to person,
We do not use synthetic ingredients, harsh detergents or abrasives, artificial fragrances and other known irritants, although pure essential oils and plant actives may still cause skin sensitivity for some. As such, if you have a history of sensitive skin or allergic reactions, we recommend you conduct a test of any skincare product you purchase on a small area inside your wrist prior to using to ensure skin compatibility. If no adverse reaction is experienced within 24 hours, apply a small amount of your product to your face using less product than you normally would in the first instance, then slowly increase the amount.
Spiritwoods cannot guarantee that customers will not experience skin reactions, and cannot be held responsible should any occur.
Can I use your products whilst I am pregnant?
Many of our offerings contain concentrated amalgams of herbs, plant extracts and essential oils, some of which may be safe to use in the second + third trimesters, some of which are strongly recommended to avoid during your entire pregnancy and whilst trying to conceive.
As such, please read our ingredient lists carefully although we would suggest you err on the side of caution and save our treatments as a gift to yourself once your little one has been born. As always though, you should make and rely upon your own assessments and enquiries to verify the appropriateness of any product for your use.
How do I order an item that is currently out of stock?
All of our offerings are crafted in micro batches using time honored methods which may require between 4 weeks to 3 months to cure, infuse or synergise depending on their individual components. Unless otherwise stated, products will be restocked as time permits at our earliest opportunity.
Can I order bespoke offerings?
Yes! Carefully customised blends and infusions for a range of self care and ritual applications are available upon request. Additionally, should you or a loved one have allergies to particular botanicals or nut oils which may be present in one of our existing offerings, we can provide custom made products to suit your specifications. To enquire further about this service, please use our contact form above
I would love to experience your offerings but I'm unsure where to start?
We have endeavoured to provide a wealth of information about each product on this site, accompanying their presence with application guidance, full ingredient list + safety information where applicable.
If you would like further assistance to ascertain which offerings are best suited to benefit your skin, ritual or lifestyle, we would be happy to assist you. Please don't hesitate to use the contact form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I store my products + what is their shelf life?
All our offerings are housed in packaging designed to protect and extend the life of the precious essences inside the bottle/jar. Unopened offerings have a shelf life of 12-24 months depending on the individual product. We recommend using your treatments within 6 - 12 months after opening for maximum effect whilst storing below 21°C/70°F and out of direct sunlight.
Our Elemental Balms and Lip Treatments are temperature sensitive and may soften in warmer temperatures + become harder in colder temperatures. Any resulting textural changes will not affect the power and efficacy of the product.
Why use preservatives?
In offerings containing even a minute addition of purified water, distillate or floral hydrosol along with significant concentrations of botanical actives + plant extracts, antimicrobial coverage must be employed to maintain the integrity of the product for your safety.
We have carefully selected two ECOCert approved bio-based preservative blends for use within our facial creams + botanical mists, containing raw materials derived from naturally occurring compounds which also align with our vegan friendly, cruelty-free + sustainably sourced standards.
Unlike many synthetic preservative systems, they DO NOT contain parabens, halogens, triclosan or formaldehyde.
