Used to be, long ago, way in the back of the store, just past the shelf marked "Strange and Wonderful Items of Unusual Interest" (where you were sure to see something you never saw before!) was a little space marked Maria’s Corner. Now, in our bright new superstore, Maria's corner is front and center. Here you will find products selected by our Production Manager, Maria Roderick which reflect the needs of the season, a special holiday or just Maria’s whim. The savvy shopper checks this spot on every visit knowing that Maria changes her display often.
Maria's own comments about these products are in red below.
Maria's current display is called Fall Fundamentals and includes the following:
SKIN TONIC FOR FACE & BODY
"I love just about anything with Sandalwood in it. This Skin Tonic is very special because it contains the infused oils of plants traditionally used for healing all types of skin problems. It is a strong moisturizer with less of a feminine scent that men and women both seem to like."
So nice for the skin and such a helpful aid to tissue and bones. Great as a lip balm also! Contains the essential oils of Yarrow, Lavender and Carrot in a base of Comfrey infused Sunflower oil and unbleached Missouri Beeswax.
"This has always been my favorite Cheryl's Herbs balm. I use it to heal really chapped and small cuts and cracks on my hands. It works fast."
SOAP & SHAMPOO
"I like this as a body wash after a day of fall planting and yard work. It seems to relieve itchy skin and I like to think it helps guard against any poison ivy I may have unknowingly encountered in the yard."
& ORANGES CHEERING BATH HERBS
"The chilly Fall air puts me in the mood for warm baths. This herb mixture is perfect for a fragrant bath. It will turn your bath water a lovely pink color!"
"The perfect seasonal scent to refresh the air in the house. I love the warm and cheerful smell of oranges, cinnamon and cloves."
"A winter essential. I like to diffuse this mixture at home to fight germs. This mixture works fast to open up stuffy sinuses. A small bottle is great to keep with you everywhere you go for quick relief."
"These two extract combinations are similar to the teas bearing the same names but are much easier to use, especially if you don't have time to brew tea. A one-ounce bottle is easy to take along with you everywhere to help treat sinus and respiratory symptoms."
WIND HEAT (Red Sage)
"I like this at the first sign of respiratory illness. I take it as a warm tea: 1 teaspoon in a cup of warm water with honey."
WINDSCREEN PLUS (Red Sage)
"This Chinese herb mixture is great to start strengthening the lungs before cold and flu season sets in."
"I use Astragalus every day to help strengthen my immune system. It is a traditional Chinese herb. A wonderful tonic herb for the immune system."

"Paw Gep used to have a cat - a big fat black and white cat - named Koan (person) who used to come around every two days and beg Paw Gep to give her a bath! First she would drag up a towel Paw Gep kept for her in the kitchen. Then she would knock the shampoo bottle off the shelf and roll it over to the towel. Finally she would go sit in the wash basin and meow obnoxiously till Paw Gep finally gave her a nice warm washing, during which she purred constantly and loudly. She was the cleanest cat I ever saw"
