Important Note: At Onhava, we strive to provide our customers with the highest quality ethical products while keeping prices affordable for everyone, making healthy living more attainable.
You might be wondering why the retail price is so expensive compared to other brands and why especially the transit/cargo and customs charges especially are so high.
This initial batch, the May 2020 Pressing, is limited to only 62 bottles, which is why the per-unit cost of the transit, customs, and lab tests are so relatively expensive.
If we have enough sales and enough interest in this product, we will import larger shipments and pass on as much of the savings as we can to you and still allow Onhava to make enough money to keep our lights on and continue our mission.
