Store Policies, Shipping and Turn Around Time – Nui Cobalt Designs

Store Policies, Shipping and Turn Around Time

Nui Cobalt Designs is cruelty-free.  Most of our scents are also Vegan, but will include a note in the product description if we used a component like bee-pollen or such.

Nui Cobalt Collections: We offer monthly seasonal collections of scents, candles and other items.  These collections are usually available for 3-4 months.  Most collections do return annually, but we occasionally permanently retire a product or entire collection.

You can review our available scent list for descriptions of all current NCD scents.

The yearly rotation is certainly subject to change, but this was 2022:
Jan: Valentines
Feb: Bees
Mar: April Fools (British Baking Show)
Apr: Critters
May: Fae Folk & Otherworldly Beings
Jun: Big Island
Jul: Witches Utility collection
Aug: Autumn I
Sep: Autumn II/Halloween
Oct: Astrology
Nov: Yule
Dec: Geeks and Gamers
Our Cobalt Druid, Continuous Collection, and Archive are available year-round, too.
Continuous Collection: This collection is a special extended time run of some of our most popular scents.  Scents may be rotated in/out and some scents may be removed if we have a component issue.

Additionally, the Cobalt Druid line of scents is always available, though we do retire/replace a few scents from it from time to time.  Many of our beeswax candles are available year round.

Archive scents - These are scents from previous collections that we don't plan to reblend this year and are only selling what we have poured/stored. While it doesn't mean we'll never reblend or reformulate these scents, they may have a component that the vendor no longer offers. It's probably useful to consider them discontinued, with the slight chance we'll reblend in the future.

Turn Around Time:  7 Days for all orders, excludes customs or pre-order items.
We aim for all orders to be shipped within 7 days.  If your order included a pre-order or custom item, turn around may be longer. As a small family business, we can't specifically guarantee an exact turn around time, but always strive to ship as quickly as possible.

    Talismans:  "Please handle with kindness and loving care, as the living spirit of each talisman is inclined to treat its keeper as it is being treated.  Additionally, handcrafted jewelry is fragile so we do not recommend wearing it while performing manual labor, exercising, bathing or sleeping." - Nui Cobalt
