Lise Racine and Costa - The Herbal Gardener on Gardening Australia


One Saturday at the market I bought the Calendula and Comfrey Ointment to see if it could help my husband with some ant bites that just kept being inflamed and so itchy. He got significant relief using the ointment. That night I was bitten several times by mosquitoes and was having a hard time getting to sleep because every time I moved it would irritate them and start them itching again. I thought of the ointment and wondered if it could help, put it on and it calmed the bites right down and I was able to have a good night's sleep. Thank you!!!"

I just love this range of beauty products. They are so gentle on the skin.

I am soooo glad you were there on Saturday.....    My skin feels like it has just had a huge drink....   My friend that was with me has the most sensitive skin and had put some other stuff on her hand the day before and it reacted .  You actually said to her try this and she in her head was thinking oh heavens!!!  but did and no reaction...  (you actually put it in the same spot that had reacted) so she is going to get your product next time.........   I went !without you for one month but would not buy anything else.....my friend was shocked!!!     She knows when I find something good I will not substitute for anything!!!  your product is for me for life!!
