You can pay by 1) direct bank transfer, 2) cash on collection, 3) iDeal (Dutch customers only), 4) Mr Cash (Belgian customers only) or 5) Paypal. iDeal, Mr Cash and Paypal are facilitated via Icepay, our nominated online merchant payment service provider.

DELIVERY OF GOODS:
Orders with payments received before 12 noon will normally be despatched the same day (Mon-Fri). Orders received after after 12 noon will normally be despatched the next working day. However, this may be subject to seasonal variation, such as during the summer vacation period and prior to Christmas, or when we are away at trade fairs. Risk of damage or loss of the goods passes on to you on despatch. We therefore recommend insured postage. If you require express delivery you may organise your own carrier to collect from us providing you inform us before placing you order.
OUT OF STOCK ITEMS:
Sometimes we may sell out of a product before being able to replace it and update our site information accordingly. Should you order a product which is out of stock we will delete the item from your order, refund the price of that item and process the rest of your order normally. We will also notify you by email as well as notify you when the item is back in stock.
RETURNS – DELIVERY ERRORS:
If from our error you received the incorrect goods please email or call us as soon as reasonably possible to let us know. You will receive a full refund (including the postage) or a replacement once we have received the original goods back from you. Please return the goods within 14 days of the invoice date, including a copy of the original invoice, to:
Romantic Nature (trading as Blooming Naturals), Yvo Janszlaan 19, 1679 XB, Midwoud, Netherlands.
RETURNS – UNWANTED GOODS:
You may cancel your order within 7 days of receiving it and receive a full refund (excluding postage costs) providing the products are returned to us securely packaged to the above address unusued, unopened and in a re-saleable condition within 14 days of the invoice date. Please include a copy of the invoice. Full postage costs must be paid by the client. Undperpaid postage costs will be deducted from the refund. We regret that we cannot refund or exchange any product that has been opened or used, nor any prescribed herbal teas or tincture complexes or custom-made products. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Our courses and workshops are limited to small numbers in order to guarantee sufficient individual attention. For this reason your place can be secured only by full payment or payment of the deposit. We regret that we cannot offer a refund if you cancel your participation in full or in part. However, where the cancellation is due to illness or bereavement we will if possible offer you a free place on a future course or workshop of the same subject to cover what you missed.
Discount vouchers may be applied to all discountable items in our shop and are deducted from the net amount payable for the goods. Certain items, including postage costs and any special offers, are not discountable. Discount vouchers are valid for a fixed term and are limited to one per person.
