With the holidays right around the corner, crafting for the holidays is in full swing. The holidays are a busy time for crafters because soap and beauty products make fantastic gifts! If your gift recipients or customers don’t live nearby, your products will need to be shipped. This can be a little nerve wracking, as homemade bath and body products are often delicate and heat sensitive. Knowing how to properly pack your items may save them from being damaged in transit. Below are basic tips on securely packaging and shipping your creations to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.
The first step to preparing your products for shipment is to evaluate what you are shipping. Are your products delicate, like bath bombs? Are they heat sensitive, like balms or lotions? Or maybe they are an awkward shape like soapy cupcakes. All of these factors will affect how your items are packed and shipped.
