What is your returns policy?

We are happy to exchange, refund or credit the full purchase amount (except for delivery charges) on any items 7 days from delivery that are returned to us, provided that they're received by us in an un-opened, un-used state, in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition. Returns must be accompanied by a note that includes your name, email address, order number and date of purchase.

Please note we do not accept returns on the following products: 

1. Enema Kits - Due to health and safety regulations

2. Electronic Information Series - Including E-FDR and B4B USB

3. Farmacist Desk Reference Book Set (FDR)

4. Water Distillers, Kuvings Juicers & Carillon Healing Bowls

All items will be inspected by us once received to ensure that they're in re-saleable condition prior to any refund, exchange or credit being issued. Returned items are the purchaser's responsibility until such time as they arrive at the return delivery address, therefore "registered post" is recommended. All delivery charges associated with returning any products to us are the sole responsibility of the purchaser and will not be reimbursed by us. Any returns that are damaged or deemed by us not to be in re-saleable condition once received by us will not be refunded, exchanged or credited. 

If you need to proceed with a return, please email hello@tolmanselfcare.com and a team member will provide you with our return address.

For orders less than AU $500, shipping charges vary and are calculated at check out by Australia Post and DHL Express international delivery rates based on the items contained within the order and the destination address. 

Please Note:  For deliveries to countries outside of Australia, import duties and taxes may apply and do vary from country to country. Should they be applicable, these charges are the sole responsibility of the purchaser and/or consignee, not Essential Self Care Pty Ltd.

The recipient, or anyone authorised to accept the goods on their behalf, must be present when the order is delivered unless you have selected 'Unattended Delivery' at check out and provided instructions where we can leave your purchase in a secure location at your property or with a neighbour. Where Unattended Delivery/Authority to Leave has been selected, all liability is placed upon the recipient after the parcel has left our warehouse.

If you have not selected 'Unattended Delivery' and there is no one at the address to receive the order, a calling card may be left for you to arrange re-delivery with Fastway Couriers, Australia Post or DHL Express, or pick up from your nearest post office/local depot.

All items purchased from Tolman Self Care are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the courier. If your parcel is lost with the courier, you must contact them and seek compensation. 

If you have provided the wrong shipping address, are avoiding custom import duties and/or tax fees as an international customer, or have not collected your items from the post office or local depot, we cannot be held liable. Your parcel may be returned to us, and whilst we can cover the couriers return fee, we cannot cover the reshipment fee. Please contact our team at hello@tolmanselfcare.com to arrange a reshipment if required. You'll be sent an invoice to cover the reshipment fee and once paid, we'll resend your parcel.

We don't refund parcels that are returned to us due to incorrect delivery details entered on the order, customs and import duties being ignored, or the parcel not being collected from the local depot or post office in time.

My Parcel Hasn't Arrived?

Sometimes (very rarely) parcels go missing in the mail. If it has been past 10 business days, please contact our team and we'll do our best to help you out!

What forms of payment are accepted?

We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, AfterPay and ZipPay. 

Why has my credit card been declined?

The most common reason for an order declining is that the billing address details have been entered incorrectly i.e. they don't match the details your bank has on file for the credit card you're using. To avoid this, please ensure that you enter in the address to which your bank statements are sent to in the 'billing address' section. For further details of declined payments, please contact your card issuer.All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your credit card refuses to or for some reason does not authorise payment to Essential Self Care then you will be notified of this during the checkout process.

My order didn’t go through, but I think I've been charged?

Only orders that make it through the completed checkout process are processed by our online payment gateway to your credit card.

My order was confirmed but an item is out of stock. Why is this?

If we are very low in stock of an item that you've ordered, on rare occasion, we may not be able to fulfil this item on your order immediately. If this is the case, we will contact you to let you know about the expected fulfilment time or to arrange a replacement, backorder or refund. 

I emailed Customer Service but haven't heard back yet. Why is that?

We aim to respond to all inquiries within 48 hours, so please hold tight. During peak holiday periods like Christmas or Easter, you may experience additional delays in receiving replies to your emails, but rest assured we will get back to you just as soon as we can. 

I saw something I love but it’s sold out! Will you be restocking it?

Many of our products are hand-made by us in-house in small quantity batches and some are locally sourced from outside suppliers, so occasionally certain items may be out of stock temporarily if certain ingredients or products are unavailable.

If something appears out of stock on our website, it is usually only for a few days, so please check back again soon to see if it's available or contact our team at hello@tolmanselfcare.com for an estimated time of arrival.

Can I exchange an item that was purchased Online?

Yes. We're happy exchange item/s returned to us 7 days from delivery, provided that they're received by us in an un-opened, un-used state, in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition. You can visit our Return Policy page for more information.

Can I change or cancel my order?

Changes or cancellations to your order for delivery can be made by contacting our Customer Service Team at hello@tolmanselfcare.com. We aim to dispatch your items as quickly as possible and if your order has already been dispatched, we will not be able to make any changes.
