Once a workshop booking has been confirmed, all workshop bookings are non-refundable, however if cancellation notice is made via email no later than 5-days prior to the scheduled date of the workshop it may be transferred to another date if available, gifted to a nominated person, or a credit to the maximum value of the workshop can be provided for purchases of Live In Spirit products and services via the website. If your confirmed session is already booked out, rebooking fees will apply. If your session is not fully booked and you have provided notice by email within required timeframe, then no rebooking fee will apply.
- Cancellations or rescheduling: We often have people on waiting lists, and also do a lot of preparation for the class, so we require 5 days notice by email, otherwise you will forfeit your session or be charged rebooking fee up to $50.00 if we cannot fill your vacancy.
- Classes cancelled within 48 hours of scheduled session time will be forfeited with no exceptions.

Store Pick-up: For Customers who request ‘Pick Up’ please choose this option in the shopping cart. Please allow 24 hours to have your package ready for you. You will be notified of the Pick-up address in Pascoe Vale once payment is received.
Modifying Orders: At Live In Spirit, it is our goal to sell high quality products at low prices, and quickly ship those products out to our customers. In order to be able to accomplish this, we cannot spend our day changing orders. This slows down our entire operation; office staff, fulfilment department, order packing department, and Courier office. If we were to begin implementing order changes at Live In Spirit, we would have to hire more staff, and this would cause an overall increase in prices customers have to pay. We thank you for your cooperation with this policy. Please do not email us, call us or go on our face book pages asking that exceptions be made. Once an order is placed, it cannot be changed. Any additions to orders will be treated as separate orders, and assigned a separate order ID number and tracking numbers. Otherwise if your original order has not been processed you can cancel it and submit a new order.
- It is crucial that you double/triple check the accuracy of your order before clicking the "complete your order" button during checkout. We will not be held accountable, and will not correct any order mistakes that you have made.
- We cannot add to your order or take away from your order.
- We also do not combine orders to ship together.
- There is a 15% restocking fee charged for any order which we have to cancel due to lack of payment in full. Example: We have had incidences where customers have paid for their merchandise, we have packed their order and emailed them to tell them what they need to pay for shipping, but the customer fails to pay for the shipping. Your credit card will be credited the amount of your merchandise minus a 15% restocking fee due to the amount of labour involved to handle your order and to pack and unpack your order.
- If orders are cancelled prior to being ‘Processed’ with no penalty applies
- We do not Back Order Merchandise. If we receive an order that has items which are out of stock , we will contact you via telephone and/or email to let you know we are out of stock, and we will credit your account or credit card for the amount of the out of stock merchandise. All out of stock items will have to be reordered. Please note that our shopping cart does not interface with our inventory system and therefore, we are unable to list items in real time as out of stock on the web.

For any product return, please approach us via email directly within one week from date of purchase. You must provide:
- Proof of purchase - typically, but not always, a receipt. (if we cannot be satisfied that you purchased the product from us then, under the law, we are entitled to elect whether or not to accept your product for return)
- Photos clearly identifying the fault/damage
Live In Spirit retains the right to make the decisions following:
- There is no fault found - Where there is no fault found, and you choose not to keep it, the product will be re-stocked at a cost to the customer of $15.00
- There is a major fault found and the customer is to be offered a replacement or a refund we will cover the shipping cost to you. Any cost incurred by you in bringing the item back to us will be borne by you.

All fragrance and colour sales are final. We recommend that you try sample sizes first. For sanitary reasons, we cannot take them back nor resell them. We also do not offer any type of fragrance exchanges. Fragrance is sold by weight, not volume. Due to the high concentration of our fragrance oils, we suggest that you test them in products before calling us; fragrance smells different in finished products than they do out of the bottle. Fragrances with the same name from different companies will likely smell different. Fragrance used in products may discolour and make the product thin. We suggest testing our products prior to making large quantities of your finished goods. Live In Spirit is not responsible for any products or equipment you used when making your products. We will not reimburse customers for raw ingredients used in finished products.
Due to the fact that wax may differ from batch to batch, we cannot guarantee that all batches will be identical. Therefore, we do not accept returns on wax sales, and we do not allow any credits or exchanges for wax.
Receiving Broken/Damaged Merchandise - All of our merchandise is inspected for damage prior to shipping. If you receive products that were damaged during transit, please report any damage direct to Freight company.
