Please note we cannot dispatch goods until we receive the payment in full.
Credit/ Debit Card Payment
The payment is handled by a secure external system that will capture and authorise the card details at the point of sale.
This system will generate a Unique Transaction ID each time a payment is submitted to Ancient Wisdom. The system will also send an automated email confirming these details, provided that an email address is submitted at the point of sale.
The payment is taken automatically through the PayPal system. If this method is chosen, the buyer will be redirected from our shopping cart to the PayPal site so that they can log in to their PayPal account check and confirm their details and submit the payment.
When choosing this option, we will provide the buyer with our bank details for the transfer. These can be found on the automated email order confirmation.

Ownership of Goods
Sians Emporium retains the ownership of all supplied goods until the payment for these is made in full.
Once the full payment has been received, the ownership of the goods is transferred onto the customer.
Should the customer receive goods not listed on the final invoice or incorrect quantities of ordered goods, we advise them to contact us as soon as possible to resolve the matter.
Carriage will be calculated on a per order basis. Orders non mainland UK will be placed on hold until the delivery prices are calculated.
Due to wide range of sizes and weights of the items we sell, we have found that some couriers are more economical for certain parcel sizes and locations. Therefore, we send orders for UK Mainland via a variety couriers. However, we aim to get their parcels to customers with 2-3 business days on average. On occasion these times may be extended due to circumstances beyond our control (e.g. weather or damage to vehicles) We notify of any changes to dispatch times on the website above the search bar if the delay exceeds an extra business day. Should you need any information on current dispatch times, please contact us via telephone or email.
We advise to provide a mobile telephone contact number when placing an order as the courier system sends automated text notifications with estimated delivery times on dispatch. We use a courier door-to-door service for all our deliveries. Buyers are obliged to provide us with full accurate delivery address and a contact telephone number (ideally a mobile telephone number).
Courier deliveries take place Monday-Friday, 7.30am – 5.30pm (excluding bank holidays). On occasion, the couriers can deliver outside of these hours, however this is usually at their discretion and it is not a service that can be purchased via Sians Emporium. Please always check your email confirmation as the shipping address on the confirmation will be the one we will pass on to our courier service provider. If you have any special instructions for your delivery i.e. safe place around your property or a neighbour that will take the delivery if you are not available, please advise us of these details at the point of sale. If special instructions are provided post-dispatch of the order, we cannot guarantee the courier will receive them in time, which may delay the delivery.
Sians Emporium is not liable for goods left safe upon request.
Courier will attempt the delivery once and should this be unsuccessful, they will email/ text or leave a card to advise of the attempt and leave details on how to arrange a redelivery. Please contact us or follow the instructions on your missed-delivery card to complete the delivery. Should the redelivery be unsuccessful, Sians Emporium reserves the right to issue a revised delivery charge on the 3rd attempt.
PO Box Deliveries:
Sians Emporium does not have a delivery option that serves PO boxes.
Dangerous Goods to Northern Ireland:
Some of our Essential Oils are classed as Dangerous Goods. Due to courier restrictions on transportation of Dangerous Goods to Northern Ireland via road we can only use air or pallet freight for such deliveries. Air and pallet freight are subject to DG surcharge.
Please contact us via email or telephone should you require further details.
Out Of Stock Items
We try to keep our website as up to date as possible. If there are any out of stock items, we will deduct these from your final invoice, which will generate a refund that will be put back to the original method of payment within 1-7 business days.
To make this process as swift as possible, we advise to always put the most up-to-date contact details on the order. We will be contacting buyers via the telephone so please make sure you provide us with a current telephone number.
If you wish for us to contact you on every out of stock item, please request this when placing your order. You can leave a message for us in the ‘special instructions’ box, email. If we cannot reach you via the telephone we will leave a voicemail if there is such option. If not – we will email. We will hold the order until 3pm the following business day and if we do not hear from you by then, the order will be shipped and the difference refunded.
A refund will be issued for any out of stock items. Refunds are processed within 1-7 days once an order has been invoiced and dispatched.
We aim to process all refunds within 1-7 business days from the invoice date, however this can take longer during the busiest periods in the year (September -January). BACS/ Cheque/ Postal Order: If there is a difference in payment, a credit against the next order will be logged on the account. Please note we do not offer a back-order service. Our website will display estimated delivery times for most products. Both these options are available via the website only and are visible once you are logged in.
If you wish to cancel your order, please inform us of this immediately via the telephone, email. We will confirm the cancellation with you in writing and refund the payment for the order.
If you cancel your order after it had already been dispatched, but it is still on the way to its destination, we will contact the courier and stop the delivery. However, we will deduct the carriage charge from the overall refund for the cancelled order. If you wish to cancel the full order or any part of an order after you have already received it, you have the right to do so within 7 days of the delivery date of the order. In such case, please contact us so that we can provide you with a Returns Form to fill in and include in the return. Please note, we will not reimburse the return postage charge or the initial delivery charge. We will request that you return the goods at your own cost.
If you wish to use our collection service, we will charge an additional return fee based on the courier service required to get the parcel/pallet returned. This will be confirmed with you prior to arranging the collection. Once the order is returned, we will refund your original method of payment less any postage charges incurred. The goods should be unopened and in their original packaging.
Please note that we do not accept returns on customized goods.
We require 20% deposit for any special order made. Should the buyer wish to cancel a special order after it has been originally confirmed and the deposit has been paid, the deposit will not be refunded.
Any goods manufactured especially for a customized order (bath bombs, soap, oil blends etc) will need to be purchased in the increments of their ‘production runs’. We can usually estimate how many of an item can be made per production run, however if there are any extra products made, the buyer will be required to purchase these also.
