Welcome to our shop

Our store policies are in addition to our general site policies. The Yin Yang House ships packages within the US and internationally. Although only orders shipping within the US can use our cart checkout.

All international orders (outside the US) must submit an international order request (must be logged in) and you will be sent a customized invoice - you cannot checkout with the cart.

Domestic orders are shipped within 1-3 business days from our affiliate in Chattanooga, TN. All orders are shipped via USPS priority mail (3-5 business days). International orders may take up to 4 business days to ship. We use flat rate shipping based on total order price. Our domestic (within the US) rates are as follows:

  • $0 - $49.00 order is charged $10 for shipping
  • $49+ shipping is free.

International shipping rates will vary, but we generally still use USPS priority mail.

Store Policies:

  • Due to the unique nature of our products and the potential for tampering, there are no refunds accepted. You should be certain of what you are ordering before completing your order.
  • We greatly prefer and feel it is in your best interest to work with a practitioner locally.
  • Herbal Notice: *Pian?, Wan?: Wan means ball and Pian means tablet. Additionally formulas may end with dan, tang, or san. As an example, "You Gui Wan" and "You Gui Pian" are the -exact- same formula. In activeherb products we will primarily ship pian, unless we only have wan in stock. Most other formulas are available in wan only and most of the larger more concentrated herbs are in capsules. If you have a very specific need you should contact us before placing your order.
  • For most "wan/pian" formulas we use one of two major suppliers and will ship what we have in stock. We try to keep our product description and graphics up to date, but for products with supply issues the picture and/or description may vary from the product shipped. While the brands we use are clinically similar in our opinion, if you have a very strong need for a particular brand, please contact us in advance before ordering. On the site we often use wan in our formula names, regardless of the pill type, as it is a common way to describe a formula.
  • Ingredients of the formulas that are linked to on our theory site are only examples of what is traditionally included. Each manufacturer takes their own liberties in formulating their version of the formula as they seem appropriate based on their clinical experience, availability of herbs (which can be affected by growing seasons, shortages, etc.), environmental sensitivity of herbs (replacing certain ingredients for more environmentally appropriate herbs), and other factors. If you need a precise ingredient list, please contact us before ordering.
  • We will not guarantee delivery of any international shipment. We rarely have problems but if your package is returned to us for any reason you will be responsible for the cost of shipping as well as the cost of any damaged goods. If your package is lost you will not receive a refund for the products or the shipping cost.
