I have been using Amber's Wild Rose Face Serum for a number of years now. Right away it became my favourite skin care product and it's all I ever want to use. I highly recommend her expertly crafted products, a delight for the senses and nourishing for the skin and soul.
The Fountain of Youth Face Serum doesn't make my face feel oily, and the aroma is amazing! I have used it for over a year, and have noticed healthy changes in my skin.
I recently purchased 3 bottles of your Mama Body Oil, and I just wanted to thank you for the time and energy you put into the beautiful cloth and string you wrapped them in. I was so delighted when I took them out of the mail package! I've purchased online from you before, and they always arrive looking so beautiful:)
It's that time of year folks, time to be proactive in your health and also time to rest. My phone and messages have been blowing up the past few weeks with people buying products to help them as they are finding themselves going through big healing crisis. This lead me to create this Wellness Bundle.
The products in this bundle offer something helpful for most of the common symptoms people experience when they have the common cold or flu.
The dry itchy sore throat, the coughing, the congestion, the chills and fever, the dry lips and cracked nose.
Everything in the Bundle is Safe and Beneficial for the whole family.
