Regarding Large Orders: Large orders for special occasions are welcome and many Pixxxie Pie products make fantastic favors and gifts for all manner of fairy wedding or unique get-together. Just send an email detailing the large quantity you want and a special listing will be created for you.

REGARDING WHOLESALE INQUIRIES: Pixxxie Pie & Posie is no longer accepting wholesale inquiries. All Pixxxie Pie & Posie products are sold exclusively through this venue (or through direct sales through the Madame) to ensure product quality, brand integrity and pricing consistency.

Consignment: Consignment arrangements are NOT possible due to the nature of the natural/botanical products offered. 

JEWELRY

All jewelry is hand crafted with natural high quality materials and will withstand normal wear and tear.


 NATURAL INGREDIENTS

Products are 99.9% natural! Pixxxie Pie & Posie's Apothecary Whimsies (essentially all Perfumes, Colognes, Body & Bath products), are natural & handmade w/ organic botanicals & the like. You'll find no synthetic preservatives, chemicals, unnecessary animal byproducts (only goat's milk on occasion) or filling material in any products sold through this humble mercantile. Why not 100% natural? The Madame does not own her own essential oil fabrication facility so it's pretty hard to use the word 100%...but 99% is doing pretty darn good, lol!


 PREGNANT OR NURSING? HOW ABOUT ALLERGIES? 

Note to those who are pregnant or nursing: Use special care when utilizing perfume oils due to the high concentrations of essential oils and/or absolutes. It is commonly recommended that you forgo the use of heady perfume oils completely. 

If you suffer from allergies or other sensitivities perform ye' olde patch test before rolling around in your bottle of wunderstuff. 

All cosmetic products are thoroughly tested on a happy house full of people (and friends) who smell ravishingly good all the time, so all products are guaranteed cruelty free.


 ABOUT "MUSKY" & "FRUITY" AROMA NOTES 

Regarding Aroma Component Termed "Musk": My "Musk" oil is created with Ambrette & Amyris Essential Oils since I prefer not to utilize musk derived from animals. 

Regarding "Fruity" Aroma Components: Fruity components are created by mixing a variety of essential oil components to mimic the smell of said fruit. Will the component smell exactly like the fruit? No, especially if you are accustomed to or prefer strong, heavily synthetic fruity aromas. What you will find with the few of my blends that contain fruity elements is a close approximation of the fruit element with a very green edging. 


CARE AND KEEPING 

Artisan Perfume Oils and such keep best when they are housed in cool spots out of direct sunlight. Natural perfumes and colognes are the sparkly vampires of the aroma realm so do consider keeping yours in a place that's cool and dark. Avoid leaving in high temperature areas. Your product should last 1.5-3 years in optimal conditions. 


SOAPS

Soaps last longer if you let them sit and dry on a slotted soap dish between uses. 

Soaps should lather well unless you have "hard water" issues, whereby your water is a bit infested with heavy minerals. Use of a woven "scrubby" or washcloth will aid in building up lather in this situation. 

My soaps are not like the boring harsh soaps you buy at the mega-market. This is soap "Old School Style"! Many soaps have bits of flowers, petals, leaves and other non-crushed organic items that are added to give them exfoliating properties. These will come out in the bath water & they are meant to. In a perfect world you'd soak in hot water and these bits of leaves & such would add wonderful texture & aromatherapy properties to your bath. Note that these same texture additives can end up in your hair. But worry not: Give yourself a rinse and when you towel off you should find yourself free of any remaining exfoliate matter! You should also find your skin magnificently supple, smooth and moisturized as it has never been before!


PRODUCTS INTENDED FOR ADULT USE

Products made by the Pixxxie Pie Emporium are intended for adult usage and not for usage by persons under the age of 15 (unless under the supervision of an adult). 


RECYCLE & UP-CYCLE 

Recycled materials are utilized whenever possible & all buyers are encouraged to re-use/re-purpose labels, jars & glass bottles & such once products are utilized.


BASIC COPYRIGHT & LEGAL

All images, logos and product names and the like are under copyright/trademark. Ask permission if you'd like to use anything from Pixxxie Pie & Posie for commercial purposes. But feel free to blog all you want since I'm all into Fair Use.

Statements regarding effects of certain products have not been evaluated by the FDA.  


REGARDING IMAGE ACCURACY 

Please keep in mind that I try my best to take extremely accurate pictures of my products. But do try to remember to take into account that the accuracy of color depiction can be offset by the color calibrations of your computer's monitor. Try looking at product pictures via 2-3 different computers if color accuracy is a major concern.
