First, I just want to say, thank you. I have made a few orders from BHS, and have been just thrilled with the herbs and books. My husband thinks it's great too. I have only been doing the "herbal thing" for a few months, and was actually excited for one of the kids to get sick, so I could try a few things out on them. Well, recently, all 4 of our children caught the flu, and I treated them using herbs, probiotics, baths and poultices. They recovered SO quickly! The next week, hubby got a cold and I asked him if I could mix something up for him. He said that after seeing how the kids responded to their herbal treatments, that he would take anything I had to give him! Well, I made what we have since dubbed 'the powerhouse' ( Echinacea, goldenseal, Yarrow and Cayenne), and that cleared him up right quick! Thank you so much for helping me to be confident and take responsibility for my family's healthcare.

Sincerely,
~Kjersten H.
