All that being said this could be fixed with a simple email or FB private message so we can talk about what's going on with my order..
Update: received my order with a free witch hazel sample BUT am still getting FB messages about late shipment.
I have a order pending that will be here any day now and will try the shilajit, raw cocoa nibs and amanita muscaria for spiritual smudges.
Thank you zach for the wonderful experience
Products always arrive 7-10 days at most and i am stationed northern british columbia.
Will continue to order and there has never been a single problem or hiccup in any way :)
Remember people, if your parcel is taking longer then expected to arrive to you, its definitely
Great service, products, all around good people!
Ceremonial Cacao Paste & Super Green Vein Borneo Extract (12:1) are back in stock!!
These are both some of our customer favorites ,we're excited to have them back in stock
The Kratom Extract is my personal favorite of the varieties we've sampled, especially considering the cost!...
Have a blessed evening friends
Acacia Confusa update
The majority of our preorder delay has been relative to the demand for the Extra Finely Shredded Acacia, and its processing procedure. Having demanded a majority of this from our supplier, it has always made the process of getting all 3 varieties slower than ideal....
The root of the problem with the Extra Fine, especially this year, has been the equipment used to Grind and Mill the bark down to a powder.
We usually try to get Powder to provide as our Extra Finely Shredded Acacia;
When we demand from our supplier that they grind it all the way to a Flour ( the finest powder of particulate size you can achieve with such machinery) the ware on the equipment, and the time it takes to produce it goes up exponentially!!
Our exclusive, awesome and reliable supplier in Hawaii has always had a hard time keeping up with our demand (hence the preorders!), but it seems that the repeated ware on the equipment and maintenance necessary to produce the Powder in abundance dwells at the root of this delay.
That being said, I'm here to inform that for the time being, we are having to withdraw our demand for the Powder, and instead will be offering slightly larger grain sizes (still smaller than the Fn shredded) as our Extra Fine.
I'm sure you all can understand, we are doing this to expedite the fulfillment of all preorders and get everyone the wonderful Acacia root bark which they need...!
We're excited to be proceeding forward to get everyone taken care of promptly. Thank you for your support

Acacia update 🌿
We're sorry for the prolonged delay for Acacia Confusa preorders!
As you all know, we work with but one supplier, to ensure consistent quality. This 'small batch' method always involves a delay, but it is usually less of a delay than it has been this past cycle....
The reason being has mostly been the rain occurring at the harvesting sites, as well (for the XFn especially) machinery difficulty which is also an intermittent issue when processing dense woods into powder in bulk.
We've got a bunch going out this week though, so I come bearing good news!!
Also there is an abundance being dried/harvested/processed as we speak, with the blessing of good weather foreseen 😇
We'll be sending out a lot in the next two weeks, and intend to keep the quicker pace shipping flowing for those in need!
We are very sorry for any delay, as well as difficulty with communication. The 'ticket' system on our website is functioning properly now, you can click 'contact us' to see the submit form.
We're happy to provide updates for any preorder customer; we'll be checking the tickets all this week and of course working as quick as as we can to get these plants to those in need 🙂
Thank you all So Much for your continued support.
Through all the stress of dealing with limited supply herbs on preorder, as well payment processing issues, we're still extremely grateful to be here and working to facilitate the connection of people with wonderful and helpful plants 🌱
Goodnight, good day and good time,
Zach of Eternity
Despite everything seeming perfect with our new credit processor, apparently this was not the case. We're no longer able to utilize their service...
Although this is a bummer, it has actually catalyzed a lot of movement and inspiration for our company! 😊...
We've got a vision for expansion and this will involve a new website in part, as well as some refinement of our current one.
This will be an exciting, and overall beneficial change; we'll be announcing more details soon!
We'll have Credit back up for most* of our plants before too long, but TEACHER Plants will likely be on eCheck, BitCoin and Money Order for a few weeks until we find another suitable company to process for these.
Babylon has once again reached to infringe on Our Freedom to obtain Sacred and Medicinal Plants...but we will overcome.
Thank you so much for your understanding and support!
CREDIT CARD Processing is BACK ONLINE
We still encourage the use of eChecks and other non-Babylon payment methods (money orders?), but we're excited to now be setup with a credit processor who respects the business we do.
They are not going to be conflicting with any of our business, they are aware of the ins and outs of our products and have no qualm....
This is the First Time Ever that we've worked with a banking institution who was actually 'cool with' what we do ha.
Prior to this we've always been 'flying low', knowing that because of herbs like Kratom and Ayahuasca, we would be more than frowned on were they aware these were amidst our product line.
Thank you all for your continued support.
This new chapter will usher in some good changes for our company. Expect new plants, a supplement product line, and local events

We have more on the way now and have 7 pounds still in stock and available for purchase~
Also relieving is to be sending out another 30k of Acacia Confusa to diligent pre orderers 🙂

This will be distributed to our preorder buyers, and the rest will be listed on our website for sale....
We hope to stock more Guatemalan cacao, but for now this Ecuadorian will be our new ceremonial paste 😇

Go Local, Go Harmonious
Eternity in a Box is going to be hosting more regular events in the St. Louis area 🌿
Would you all be interested in attending a spiritually intensive Cacao Ceremony training course??
-an introductory lesson about the role that cacao has played in human civilization through time. We will discuss not only the cultural implications but also the spiritual story that this plant has told through time.
-an introduction into the understanding of the energetic and physiological effects of working with cacao, and some advice on how to best catalyze the benefit from these effects
-the Eternity Cacao Ceremony experience, which I have adapted through years of work with the plant; the Eternity Cacao Ceremony has a few phases...
prayer and intention setting as we approach the plant, consuming the cacao (of course!), a guided meditation aimed to benefit visualization and compassion, and finally an exercise intended to activate your heart-driven expression.
-a detailed lesson about connecting with plant teachers in a respectful way, as well as open discussion to help solidity the integration of new information
-you'll be taught several preparation methods, making the work with this plant versatile and fun
-you'll receive an offering of Ceremonial Cacao to bring with you and begin your own individual work with the plant spirit.
Eternity Cacao Ceremonies, with introductory material, usually last a little over an hour.
With this additional, more hands-on training, I'd say the course would last several hours, depending on the amount of questions you would have.
We would take only small groups for hands-on training, to ensure more dedicated work with each participant.
The ceremonies we can host any number at, and we've done 50+ in one setting before haha.

PayPal has become increasingly difficult to work with through the years. They've battled us numerous times, and we're almost ready to cut ties. We're moving towards alternative processing methods and working to keep up with the changing culture. Here's an excerpt from our recent blog post about it.
We're releasing a newsletter tomorrow with the same info, but also a coupon. The link to the blog and the Newsletter signup are in the comments
In case you haven't noticed, 'the system' has been working to prohibit and limit citizens access to herbal medicines, and this effort has increased CONSIDERABLY in the past few years.
We've done wonderful with avoiding prohibitions so far, even for our Teacher Plants (entheogens), but there's always a bump in the road for entheogen suppliers it seems...
Last year we saw the FDA crunch down on Kratom.
We're also seeing similar oppression in the newly blossoming Cannabis industries and other herbal medicine work.
Amanita Muscaria was blacklisted by PayPal recently, Ayahuasca Herbs including Acacia Confusa have been mostly taken off of eBay and other markets. Credit processors have been working against these plants especially. Don't worry though, we will continue to be around with your continued support!
