Depression and DespairIt is with great sadness that we have to anounce that Crystal Alchemy no longer ship Essences outside of South Africa. The local laws have become so strict with regards to shipping of liquids and even homeopathic pillules. Parcels are simply returned and don't even leave South Africa. The only other way to get essences to our international clients is with a courier service, but unfortunately this is too expensive for most people. If you would like to try the courier route, contact us directly and we'll see what we can do.
