Out of respect for all of our guests, we ask that you do not use obscene, profane or threatening language in messages. In addition, we ask that you do not submit or post photos, videos or other media that include obscene, profane or threatening images. Examples of the kinds of conduct or content that are prohibited in user-submitted content include:
- The transmission of any content that could violate, or could facilitate the violation of, any applicable law, regulation or Desert
Essence rule or policy.
- The transmission of any content that is profane, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing,

We have done our best to display as accurately as possible the colors of the products shown on DesertEssence.com. However, because the colors you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any color will be accurate.
Product and Service Availability
Reference to any product or service on the DesertEssence.com website does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available or that the name and description of any product from our wholesale distributors will be the same as that included on the website. Prepackaged gifts and kits are assembled individually and may vary slightly. Desert Essence reserves the right to substitute a product of equal value and nature if the original product becomes unavailable.
We cannot guarantee that a product listed as available will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed.
Shipping and Return/Replacement Policies
Our Shipping and Return/Replacement policies are posted on this website for your review. We request that you please read our policies thoroughly prior to purchasing products and merchandise from DesertEssence.com.
Prices and availability of the products and services listed on the site are subject to change without notice. The prices displayed on DesertEssence.com are quoted in U.S. Dollars and are valid and effective only in the United States.
While Desert Essence strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, pricing or typographical errors may occur. In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. In the event that an item is mispriced, Desert Essence may, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.
Gift Certificates can only be redeemed online at DesertEssence.com, toward the purchase of product. Gift Certificates may not be redeemed at retail stores. Purchases are deducted from the Gift Certificate balance. Any unused balance will be placed on the recipient's Gift Certificate account when redeemed. If an order exceeds the amount of the Gift Certificate, the balance must be paid with a credit card. Gift Certificates can not be reloaded, resold, transferred for value, redeemed for cash or applied to any other account. The risk of loss and title for Gift Certificates pass to the purchaser upon our electronic transmission to the recipient or delivery to the carrier, whichever is applicable. We are not responsible for lost or stolen Gift Certificates. DesertEssence.com will have the right to close customer accounts and request alternative forms of payment if a fraudulently obtained Gift Certificate is either redeemed through the DesertEssence.com website or is redeemed and used to make purchases on the DesertEssence.com website.
Please note that there may be certain orders that we are unable to accept and must cancel. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Desert Essence reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may be applicable to orders placed by the same DesertEssence.com account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We will provide notification to the customer should such limits be applied.
Some situations that may result in your order being cancelled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is cancelled or if additional information is required to accept your order. If your order is cancelled after your credit card has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card in the amount of the charge.
