You have a moderate to mild case of acne. Your doctor refers you to a dermatologist who suggests a benzoyl peroxide treatment plan. Doctor approved. Dermatologist recommended. What could be safer? In the past, we would never question this scenario. Today we do. Why? Because we can. Many professionals roll their eyes when we mention Google. There is a lot of misinformation out there. Agreed. We...

Setting: Guelph university. Fair November Craft Show, November 2019Testimonial from a customer 2 months later On our ESP bar I had the good fortune of browsing through your vendor table at Fair November at the University of Guelph, and I am so thankful.

I was shocked, well, not really, when the trouncing of coconut oil hit last week on Marketplace. It was bound to happen. Any billion-dollar industry such as coconut would increase the competitors' angst and ire.   I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when Marketplace did the final editing. Even knowing how incredible coconut is, I was fascinated at how easily one might be swayed by the...

A vegan alternative to our beloved Emu Oil for burns, Aloe Vera has been around our homes for as long as we can remember. This plant contains a soothing gel hidden within its thick green spiky leaves. For any type of burn, we run to the plant and break off a leaf, extracting the cool, soothing goodness. We believe every household should have an aloe plant! Recently, we are noticing quite the...
