* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Advice on mail/sending ointments salves creams to the USA?
« on: June 02, 2015, 01:29:25 pm »
I am sending some herbal ointments salves and footsalts to my friend in the USA. The customs declaration form says to name each item separately and to add a value to it. I have never send out my homemade stuff so not sure how to go about this.

Any advice?

The things I make are not expensive but it might seem odd to customs stating like usd 2.00 for a foot salve. Also I am in doubt about a little bag of dried mugwort? I did read at my local mail post site but none the wiser. Has anyone received a care package from abroad and how did it go?

Hopefully someone with more first-hand experience answers this, but I'm just going to throw this out there.

Have you asked your postal office about sending ointments and salts to the US? They would probably know better than anyone else the ins and outs of what you can expect.
