Orders placed during big sales events and during the holidays can take a little longer to process than usual, as we tend to get extremely busy during these times. Also all candles are made to order and in the order received. They also need to sit for at least 24 hours after pouring for proper curing, before we can proceed with packaging and shipping. The monthly clubs will ship out within the first two weeks of the month.
Please note that for international orders, Dream Soy Candles has no control over, or liability for, any customs or import duties that could be levied when the package reaches your destination country and for which you will be liable.
