Shipping is worldwide, though can be expensive if outside of the US. I always do my best to ensure items are packaged securely, and will use the cheapest shipping method possible.
how much can fit in the boxes:
The small flat rate shipping boxes can ONLY fit either 1 of each: shampoo & Conditioner bottles, 1 sugar scrub, 2 lotions OR smaller items such as lip balms, solid perfumes. This is the cheapest shipping option, but with the size and shape of my containers, I cannot fit more than 1 full size scrub in them.Some of the taller 8oz scrub jars (vs. the wider low profile jars) cannot fit at all into small flat rate - in that scenario, a padded envelope will be used, with plenty of packing material to protect it.
**If you only want to order a Shampoo & Conditioner, and you are INTERNATIONAL, this CAN go small flat rate, although paypal will calculate it as Medium flat rate because of the price. So, if this is something you want to order, please EMAIL ME at Happybuttonsoap@gmail.com with your scent preferences and your mailing address, and I will generate and invoice for you. Once you receive the invoice, just follow the instructions to pay through Paypal, and once I see that it has been paid, I will ship your items out to you.**
Regional Rate (USA Only)/Medium Flat Rate can fit a LOT. This will probably be the best option for just about everyone. I can fit up to 12 full size scrubs in 1 medium flat rate box (not sure why there is such a HUGE difference between small and medium, but whatever!) or 8 full size scrubs and a shampoo and conditioner. Either way, There is plenty of room to play with here. The Large box is even bigger, so if you need one of these, you're probably buying too much... ;)
Domestic Shipping (USA):

The States furthest from me, in Zones 6-8 will receive medium flat rate shipping $12.35 for orders over $50.00, as it's cheaper than Regional Rate B boxes.
