From our Mailbox

I received my shipment in the mail yesterday. The book Practical Herbalism is everything your site says it is and more, and I am enjoying Mama's Red Raspberry Brew! I am very impressed with your amazingly fast processing and shipping. Keep up the good work. I've already been telling all my friends about your store, and I am looking forward to placing another order soon.

Did You Know?

Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
