Does Thymes test on animals?

We at Thymes do not test products on animals. We guarantee the safety of our products by using ingredients that have been used reliably for many years, along with effective amounts of preservatives common in cosmetics. These preservatives are non-toxic and non-irritating, helping to safeguard the quality of the products you buy.

Can I use multiple discounts or promotional offers on a single order

Promotional offers and discounts cannot be combined with one another unless otherwise specified within the promotional offer.

Promotions do not apply to sale products. If there is a promo code, you must enter the promo code during checkout to receive the discount offer applied to your order.

Why can’t I find the fragrance I’m looking for?

As times and tastes change, Thymes does occasionally retire fragrances to make room for exciting new collections. It is always hard to retire a fragrance when we know there are still happy users out there making it part of their day. We have learned over the years that every fragrance has a life span and some are longer than others.

Do you have a catalog?

Yes, you can download it here. You can also download our order form which contains the product listing and pricing information.

What are your candles made of?

Thymes candle fragrances are composed of a blend of essential and synthetic oils. We use 100% food-grade paraffin wax and our wicks contain no lead. You can view our candles on our candle page.

Where can I view the ingredients before I purchase?

Each bath and body product has an ingredient list that can be found on the website. On each product page, look for the “View All Ingredients” link following the product description.

Are your products gluten free?

Yes, Thymes products are gluten free; however, we cannot guarantee that they are manufactured in a wheat- or gluten-free facility.

Why can’t I get the pump to work on my hand wash/hand lotion?

Some of our pumps open a little differently from other pumps, and sometimes the mechanism needs to be reset if it loosens on the bottle. If the pump does not operate: Unscrew the top from the bottle, lift it up just a bit, then replace the top. Be sure to screw on the top tightly; if it’s a little loose, the pump won’t open. Then twist the pump left or right until you feel a click; a quarter turn should do. Once it clicks open, push the pump to dispense the product. To lock the pump for travel, simply swing it counterclockwise.
