As a woman in her mid-50s, I am always on the hunt for high quality, natural skin care products that will replenish the oils my body so craves. Your Lavender Geranium Dead Sea Scrub makes my entire body gloriously soft. I had been purchasing raw unrefined shea butter for my skin because I could never find a product that would moisturize my skin better, until I discovered your Lavender Body Butter. It’s the perfect mixture of unrefined shea butter and other oils for a smooth and creamy mixture that bathes and relieves my dry skin. I sound like a commercial don’t I? But I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS!! And I have used a lot of skin products in my day.

I have always been a minimalist when it comes to skin care products, but I could never find quite the right thing to use on my face, until I found Elka Herbals’ Healthy Aging Facial Serum. Even the name of this product makes me happy every time I use it, reminding me to embrace the natural process of my aging as beautiful. I routinely put this on my face every time I get out of the shower, and am nourished on so many levels. I love the smell and the way it soaks in and and moisturizes me without ever feeling too oily. I never get those annoying dry patches around my nose anymore. I also love knowing how much love and care was put into this handmade product, from the thoughtful sourcing of ethical high quality ingredients, to the beautiful art on the packaging. This is a seriously unique and wonderful product that is worth every penny. I am now on my second bottle, and totally hooked.
