Every effort is made to process, prepare and package all orders for shipping within 1-2 business days. Orders submitted before 12:00 EDT, M-F, are usually packaged and shipped the same day. Some items are made fresh upon order and may take 1-2 days before they can be prepared for shipping.
The goal is to make shipping as fast and economical as possible. This includes eliminating or changing some product packaging to more lightweight material, i.e. Bath Soaks are now packaged in zipper-lock, food grade, stand-up pouches; candles are now in lightweight tins. The bulk of our shipping is with USPS, for a number of reasons: (1)they offer the best rates, (2)they deliver to every address in the US, and (3)they acknowledge Climate Change and have committed to implementation of business practices that reduce negative environmental impacts. DIAMOND BIRD LOVES EVERY ONE OF THESE REASONS! Some orders will occasionally ship with UPS for bulk/wholesale items.
Currently we ship within the US, its territories, APO/FPO Military base AND now Canada! We are exploring the possibilities for more international shipping in the future.

Some of the natural ingredients and phthalate-free fragrances used in soap making contain vanillin, a component of vanilla. The chemical reactions with vanillin during the saponification process (where oils and lye combine to become soap) will cause the resulting soap to have varying shades of tan and chocolate brown over time. This is natural and the soap is safe for use. Your soap lather may appear tan or light brown; however, it will rinse off clear. **May temporarily discolor light colored wash towels.
