Brain Haskins (Trauma Salve)
"Holy moly! I wanted to tell you that I recently used your trauma salve to relieve pain from recently acquired tennis elbow. The instant relief was extraordinary! "
Constance (Prickly Pear Juice Concentrate)
I used prickly pear for a scorpion sting! I was in pain for almost two weeks. I found an article identifying prickly pear as an old native American remedy. As soon as I applied your juice concentrate the pain eased. Very effective. I always keep some on hand.
Johanna (Gum Rinse)
I used that gum rinse today and within a few hours my cut in my mouth is pain free and almost entirely gone. It was such a slow healing process for a while so it's quite a relief.
