The safety and wellbeing of our customers and people is our number one priority, and as part of our response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), I wanted to let you know some of the ways that we will ensure your safety whilst we all deal with this situation.
We’re always open
Blooming Oils is situated in one of the most remote parts of the United Kingdom. We are 2 miles from the nearest village and half a mile from our next-door neighbours and have adopted a farm gate policy. As a farm we are used to dealing with bio-hazards – none of which have ever managed to reach our farm. Whilst we don’t yet know the best protection against COVID-19 (other than isolation and hand washing), we will follow all guidelines issued by HM Government.
Your account dashboard is available online, and your purchases will be packaged and sent through the usual channels, the main difference being the handover at the farm gate rather than direct contact. Regardless of how the situation develops, we’ll continue to remain open for business and as long as postal and shipping companies stay in operation – so will we.
Current Dispatch Issues
- Most shipping services including Royal Mail, Fedex, DHL, USPS have been significantly impacted due to COVID-19 and are still transporting shipments at a slower rate than usual.
- USPS – The United States Postal Service has a number of areas causing delay – in particular Chicago
- Holidays – As the holiday season approaches, shipping times are typically affected.
We’re here to help
We will be keeping a very close eye on research into which essential oils may prove to have an effect against the COVID-19 virus and in the meantime, we have produced a recipe for a general-purpose hand sanitiser. This is not a replacement for hand washing as defined by the Chief Medical Officer.
Our focus is to minimise disruption during this time without compromising our health or our customers. Of course, we’re always here to help.
Best wishes and stay safe,
Blooming Oils / Blooming CBD
