Have you shopped at echemist?

You know how when you make aliyah there's always something you wish you could get from "back home" but it's just not available here? Or maybe it is, but is much harder to get than you expected?

the luggage always fills up faster than expected!
I have one answer that will help you stop begging for space in people's suitcases for the little things. Luggage real estate has become especially hard to find, so it's more important than ever to find other ways of bringing those items to Israel!

So today I want to introduce you to eChemist.

If you've never shopped from eChemist, this is one site you really should check out! They offer free international delivery when you purchase 20 GBP (about 95 nis) worth of items! To compare, some Israeli websites that sell OTC meds and other assorted items only offer free shipping if you spend 200nis or 300nis!

You can get a whole lot of items like Vicks Vaporub... Children's Sudafed (without a prescription)...Ricola lozenges at an incredible price (yes, you can get those here or on iherb but don't you want to save some money??), sensitive skin "band-aids", plus other supplies and OTC meds, often for much less than you'll pay at a local pharmacy. 

Some items that are Rx only in Israel can be purchased without a prescription from echemist. Some VERY hard to find items that people are always asking about are just a click away (like this item that comes up time and time again in various women's group discussions).

You can even order from a great selection of Melissa & Doug toys!

And, as always, don't forget to check out the Sale Page!

A word of warning to Americans and other non-Brits: some of the brand name items you'll find on echemist are formulated very differently in England, and may not be the medication you are looking for! For example, Benadryl on echemist is NOT the same medication as Benadryl in the USA! Please check carefully before buying.

ALSO be aware that import restrictions on medications may apply. Order at your own risk.

When you shop from any of the links on this page, I may be paid a commission. Thanks in advance for your support!
