Frequently Asked Questions


What is your Order Processing time?

We make every effort to process, prepare and package all orders for shipping within 1-2 business days. Orders submitted before 12:00 MST, M-F, are usually packaged and shipped the same day. Some items are made fresh upon order and may take 1-2 days before they can be shipped.

What are your Shipping & Delivery Methods?

Our goal is to make shipping as fast and economical as possible. This includes changing some product packaging to more lightweight material, i.e. Bath Soaks are now packaged in zipper-lock, food grade, stand-up pouches; candles are now in lightweight tins. The bulk of our shipping is with USPS, for a number of reasons: (1)they offer the best rates, (2)they deliver to every address in the US, and (3)they acknowledge Climate Change and have committed to implementation of business practices that reduce negative environmental impacts. WE LOVE EVERY ONE OF THESE REASONS! We will occasionally ship with UPS for bulk/wholesale orders (already qualified for free shipping).

If we make an error in filling your order, please contact us. We will make the correction and ship the product to you as soon as possible. 

Why is my soap turning brown?

Some of the phthalate-free fragrances used in soap making contain vanillin, a component of vanilla. The chemical reactions with vanillin during the saponification process (where oils and lye combine to become soap) will cause the resulting soap to have varying shades of tan and chocolate brown over time. This is natural and the soap is safe for use. Your soap lather may appear tan or light brown; however, it will rinse off clear. May temporarily discolor light colored wash towels.

Can I request a special/custom order?

Yes, within limits. Contact Diamond Bird Customer Service representatives via email at  or telephone (719) 733-3355, with details and we will work with you to craft your order.   

Is Diamond Bird involved in the community?

Yes. In addition to volunteering in the community, a portion of Diamond Bird sales goes toward soap and hygiene donations for the Springs Rescue Mission to assist those in need, and to the Crawford House to help homeless Veterans.
