January 28, 2015 2 min read

It’s that time of year again, the holidays have wrapped up and the weather is changing. It is cold outside and people are getting sick. When you get sick you feel hopeless, but you aren’t, by using household herbs you can give your immune system the boast it needs. Herbs such as sage, rosemary and thyme can help you stay healthy and get you better if you do end up getting sick. Forget about those over the counter drugstore drugs that make you feel drowsy and out of it and look out into your own garden for the relief that you need. Sage, rosemary and thyme are more than just the hit album by Simon and Garfunkel; these three herbs can help you stay healthy when everyone around you is getting sick.   Sage Sage is a great home remedy to get rid of a painful sore throat. In a 2006 clinical study the researchers sprayed a sage solution into the sore throats of patients and checked their pain levels every 15 minutes for 2 hours after the first application. Results showed that the patients found significant pain relief without any side effects. Home Remedy: Try making a sage tea with honey or agave and lemon.   Rosemary Rosemary is a great culinary herb but you may not know rosemary also increases your immunity levels and fight pneumonia. Studies have shown rosemary to be rich in antioxidants, which play an important role in neutralizing harmful particles called free radicals. Home Remedy: Put a sprig or two of rosemary in your oil olive and cook with it or dip veggies in it.   Thyme Thyme stimulates the immune system, works as an antiseptic and helps clear mucus from the respiratory tract. Thyme is a great cure for bronchitis, laryngitis, sore throat and whooping cough. Thyme is also excellent source of vitamin A, C, iron, manganese, cooper and dietary fiber. Home Remedy: Boil or simmer your thyme for 10 to 20 minutes, allowing the thyme to release the medicinal phytochemicals, feel free to add cardamom, cinnamon or peppermint to this tea concoction. Drink and feel relieve from your cold systems. Using these herbs when you get sick will help get you better. Herbs from your garden can do so much more than just make food taste better. Next time you feel a cold coming on start making the home remedies listed above and get the relieve you truly deserve.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
