Thank you, mscihla36, for your kind review. Glad you visit us often on the Hill. The only thing I would contradict you about is saying that our products are "chemical free." Everything in the universe is made of chemicals. Don't feel bad, I read other...More

The store provides premium herbal soaps that rarely find in other places and also local natural products. Their staffs are educated and friendly. They are willing to take you a tour of soap production. If you visit the Hill, don't miss visiting Herbaria.
