Shipping Policy

We reuse and recycle everything we can here at Sweet Burn Candles & Melts. From our own office storage to our extra safe packaging for our deliveries. We only purchase biodegradable peanuts, eco-friendly hex wrap, and 100% recycled packing boxes as needed. All extra packaging and boxes have been collected by or donated to us.

This helps us protect our reusable glass jars on their journey to you and also helps us to keep packaging costs down.

We aim to have all orders packed and shipped within 7-10 business days of receiving your order. Please note turnaround time may be extended during sale periods. 

We use Australia Post to ship your packages throughout Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Australia Post has stated deliveries are taking longer due to the impacts of COVID-19, including international delays, fewer domestic flights, and high volumes of products being bought online. These factors will also be affecting courier and delivery businesses.

Once products have been shipped, it becomes out of our hands in terms of delivery times and any delays in orders are not within our control. Please keep track of your items using the tracking number provided and please contact Australia Post for further inquiries.

We take extra care to ensure your packages are protected during transit, however, we can not be held responsible for any events that may occur once it has left our possession.

Please be sure to check your junk/spam folder for confirmation of your order and further emails.
