The Fragrance Shoppe Essential Oils FAQ.
Does The Fragrance Shoppe have a minimum order requirement?
NO! Your company or business size does not matter. We are happy to serve any customer who are involved with resale of essential oils or the use of essential oils in your manufactured products or services and individuals.
What is the typical order turnaround time after placing our order?
Our supplier has continued its commitment over the last 8 years to be THE FASTEST SHIPPING ESSENTIAL OIL COMPANY IN THE WORLD. 99% of orders placed on our website by 10 A.M., Central Standard Time, Monday-Friday, are shipped out the same day! If you have any experience at all with other vendors, you know that same day shipping in this industry borders on the ridiculous. Our supplier is able to achieve its quick turnaround because they maintain a huge inventory at all times and don’t wait until they receive orders before they place orders to their growers and distillers.
Our fast shipping times allow us to be very convenient for many small companies who can’t afford or don’t want to tie up precious capital in purchasing larger quantities that will take them many months to sell. We have many clients who never stock any oils at all but simply place orders with us as their orders come in because they know they can depend on us to get their orders shipped quickly and without mistakes.
What is the conversion from pounds to kilograms?
Most of our essential oils have been converted from kilograms to pound sizes for easy understanding by our customers request. We highly recommend that you commit the conversion factor to memory because you will get better deals when buying in the kilogram sizes and it will be useful for you to know the conversion when comparing our prices to other US competitors who only sell in various pound sizes.
