Molluscum

My daughter had molluscum for at least six months. I decided to try your plantain ointment and it was gone within three days!

I thought it was a fluke but now have recommended it to three other families and they also had results! Thought you would want to know….

Anti-Itch and Wound Cream

From Jessica J:

I just wanted to say we LOVE your Anti itch and wound cream. I purchased a bottle years ago (maybe 2006) from a sustainable fair and have used all but the last drops. My kids ask for it with any itchy bug bites and immediately get the relief they have searched for. I have tried other products but they were not as helpful or impressive as your product! I finally need more after all these years! Thank you! You need to add a guest book to your website so we can write these messages for all to see! Thank you and God Bless!
