It has been awhile since I have logged into my blog to add new information or just send some highlights of products.
With the last few weeks trying to help out as much as I can with buying food, clothing or trying to volunteer and help those that are in need right now with being displaced from their homes (Hurricane Sandy), I just could not focus on anything else, let alone making new products.
But I just wanted to share some nice news about helping people. I am so grateful to be able to help people when they really need it in so many different ways and so here are some emails that I received over the last few months.______________________________________________________________

I don't know if you remember meeting briefly at Matt's wake, but Susan and I have been the closest of friends since since 2nd grade.
She was telling me about what you do and your studies and she sent me your deep pain healing salve, knowing I tend to have a lot of aches and pains. I have had Lupus for more than twenty years. My main manifestation is neurological and micro vascular.
But this year I started having a lot of skin problems. I have the hallmark "Lupus butterfly shaped rash" now, on and off for months. That's how Lupus (which means wolf) got its name. The rash looked like the bite of the wolf,(supposedly). Also, Lupus has "discoid lesions", raised, scaley dime sized lesions. I have had one on my eyelid and one below my eye that swell up and close my eye to a slit about once a month. I even get them in my nose. They have been there for months and they are so painful. I can't even use hypoallergenic moisturizer or anything. The doctors just throw more prednisone at it.
Well, I have been using your skin food for several days and they are almost gone! I saw a difference after the first application. And the pain was soothed. Your product is so gentle and my skin is almost clear for the first time in months. The discoids leave scars and I have no scars!
In the past, I would never take the garbage out without makeup on, and I haven't worn any in months. Of course being healthy and pain-free comes first, but a little concealer and mascara would sure cheer me up! I feel hopeful and I want to thank you. If you would ever like me to write a disclaimer for your website or product line I would be so happy to.
Thank you very much for the first hope and relief I have had in ages.

The other day Esther had a flare-up in some varicose veins; she applied your cream (Vein Relief Salve)
and she got much better in a short time.
I told Joe about it, and since he and I may not meet again very soon,
let's arrange to mail us two orders of that wonderful cream.
We will pay for the shipping also, of course.
Mille grazie, and continue your wonderful work with the skin food!

I have been using your healing salve(vegan) I am a friend of Fran also know as
EFie also known as Kim's MOM
They introduced me to your Psoriasis salve. I really like it. It helped me a great deal now that the warmer weather is here it has improved because of the warm weather,
None of the ointments I was prescribed by my doctor could compare to your product.
I keep your salve in my pocketbook in case it flares up. I am on a lot of heart medicines so I was not allowed to take any oral medicine. For now it is ok. I have to be careful because in the warm weather the salve will melt.
