    How can I get more of your excellent Elder Flower Cream? I bought some from you at the Farmer’s Market when I was visiting the area. I’ll be up your way again next Thursday – do you have it for sale in any stores in the area? At the County Fair? By mail order? Thanks.

      Hi Allegra,
      Glad to hear you are enjoying the cream! It’s my favorite blend for dry skin. I can mail order, or if you’re in town, you can pick up from my house in Grass Valley. I’ll be at the Nevada City Farmers Market August 6, Ridgestock on August 20, and again at the Farmers Market on the 27. Also, later this month my product will be at the new HAALo apothecary in downtown Nevada City, on commercial Street. Make arrangements for pick up at 530-273-3083.

    I have been using your calendula and elder flower creams. Finally I have found face creams that works for my reactive sensitive skin. I had all but given up – spent hundreds at the health food store over the years trying everything I could find. I can’t say enough about your products.
