  • I have been using these products for about three years and continue to learn new ways to use , have not been disappointed with any . I use it constantly. It makes sense , if it’s natural then it’s the best way to go . I wish I could keep it in the liquid state . I am constantly telling friends and family about this amazing product ,even giving it in gift baskets .
