My respect for Neal's Yard Remedies (NYR) and its products began nearly 19 years ago. 

As I was searching for a company to work with to educate people on the incredible therapeutic powers found in essential oils, I found NYR. Although I was familiar with the company's mail order business, I was excited to learn they had one bricks and mortar store in the U.S., and it just so happened that it was located in my backyard in Greenwich, Connecticut.

I was blessed to have an affiliation with the store and practice aromatherapy in an environment that understood the power of pure plant oils. You can read about it here

Unfortunately, life got very busy, NYR closed its bricks and mortar store, and I had a robust career as an associate editor for a newspaper that kept me busy and paid the bills, so we sadly parted ways for several years. 

It's when I contracted Lyme Disease and two co-infections following a nasty tick bite that I knew there was only one company that had products I trusted. Your skin is your body's largest organ, and what you put on your body, matters. NYR's products are organic, and they are not tested on animals.  

While I love everything from Neal's Yard Remedies, Wild Rose Beauty Balm is my favorite. All of the company's essential oils are unadulterated and ethically sourced -- and smell heavenly. 

I love NYR and offer and recommend their products to anyone looking for safe and effective skin and body care, and pure essential oils.
