IMPORTANT NOTICE ON BOTANICAL SHIPMENTS: Due to import regulations, the Government of Korea, Japan and New Zealand will not allow botanical items (seeds, flower parts, or any organic, plant substances) to be imported without special documentation outside the scope of what Bramble Berry can do. We apologize for the inconvenience to our overseas friends and hope that other countries do not begin banning botanical imports. We will keep a list here of countries that cannot import botanicals.
We can no longer ship to Russia, Nigeria, Italy or Greece. Unfortunately, Italy has import laws that do not allow Cosmetics or soapmaking supplies into the country. While Greece requires special paperwork from the FDA and inspections that are beyond our international shipping abilities. If you choose to place an order and have it shipped to Italy or Greece, Bramble Berry will not be able to refund you for shipping charges or the product if it is confiscated.
Due to Russian importing rules (as of May 2014) we can no longer ship to Russia.
Due to Nigerian importing rules (as of July 2014) we can no longer ship to Nigeria.
