Shipping Fresh Henna Paste

Shipping estimates are provided by the USPS and are not a guarantee of delivery time.

Why is fast shipping needed? Once henna paste is mixed, it needs to rest for 24-72 hours for the dye release and then it should be used that day or stored in the freezer to preserve freshness. Lengthy delivery times with First Class shipping mean the henna will arrive past its peak. Once it hits its 'peak' it will slowly begin to demise and go bad. Storing in the freezer slows down the demise process and keeps it fresh. 

Domestic Orders:  Due to the perishable nature of fresh henna paste, we suggest shipping via Priority Mail or Express Mail. 

  • First Class Mail is estimated 7-10 days in transit, may take up to 1+ month, no tracking. First Class is NOT recommended for perishable henna paste, the long transit time means the paste will arrive past its prime.
  • Priority Mail is estimated 2-5 days in transit.
  • Express Mail is guaranteed 2 days in transit. We only guarantee paste that is shipped via Express Mail as this insures it arrives quickly and in perfect condition.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Premixed paste is perishable. The longer delivery times for international orders means the paste will arrive past its prime. We prefer to send you henna powder, oils, and our recipe so you may make fresh paste at home and be guaranteed lovely fresh product. We can't guarantee the results of paste shipped internationally due to the longer time in transit and customs delays.
