Shop/Apothecary Disclaimers 


All of The Holistic Homesteader’s (HH) botanical body products are handmade in the USA in super small batches, with lots of love, by me, Allison.

I only use high-quality ingredients that you are probably already familiar with & can be purchased (more often than not) at your local market.

& that’s the point: to make simple, safe, high-quality, all-natural body products that you would love to make for yourself if you had the time, that you can feel exceptional about, & that actually WORK!

HH body products are free from artificial dyes, fragrances, colorants, and preservatives; as well as free from sulfates, phthalates, SLS, SLES, propylene glycol, and parabens.

Because The Holistic Homesteader does NOT use any type of thickener or emulsifier other than organic beeswax, salves WILL melt in warm temperatures, especially inside of mailboxes.

Most of HH’s body products should be kept in a cool, dark location (for extended shelf-life and/or to prevent melting).

Some product irregularities may occur, as well as melting &/or recrystallizing if products are kept in hot conditions.

Liquid products should be shaken or stirred prior to use.

All products, because no preservatives are used in their creation, should be discarded after 6 months and/or at any sign of spoilage.

Please reuse or recycle all packaging.

While HH uses the utmost care in creating, packaging, labeling, & shipping all of our products, there are some things you should know.

Some packaging/labeling of products may appear differently than in the image posted, but the product itself will be exactly the same, regardless of packaging.

*REBRANDING FROM GOULD HOLLOW FARM – Some labels will still say Gould Hollow Farm.*

Stickers/labels are not waterproof and will peel or bleed if wet.

Floral embellishments in photos are decorative and do not come with the products.

Upon purchase, you, the purchaser, agree to accept any and all risk and responsibility for any damage that occurs at the hands of the USPS (glass, wood, paper, plastic, or metal).

If any materials (jars, vials, etc.) get broken, you, the purchaser, accept any and all risk and responsibility for physical injury that may occur.

By purchasing from this shop, you also accept complete responsibility if you choose to ingest any herbs, spices, berries, floral items or otherwise, and for any harm that may come.

Digital items are available for download once payment is complete.  We’ll also send you a download notification email separate from any transaction notification email.

All sales are final. No returns. No refunds. No exchanges.



Natural History & Oddity Disclaimers

**Due to customs laws I cannot send animal parts/insects with international orders.**

**Some items cannot be shipped to your state or outside of the US. Buyer assumes all responsibility for purchases.**

**Please supervise children with these items and keep away from pets.**

**No animals/critters were killed specifically for their bones, teeth, claws, fur, skin, wings, exoskeletons, feathers, etc.**

*Sources of the animals/critters items include:

Scavenged from nature

-Pest control/food on our homestead

*Please know, we live on a large family farm and are active homesteaders. We value and appreciate all animals and insects. Hunting and pest control are vital activities to ensure the wellbeing of our homestead and livestock. No harvested animal is ever wasted or disrespected!

All sales are final. No returns. No refunds. No exchanges.
