Testimonial

I just wanted to rave about one of your products I've been using!  I ordered the Skullcap Tincture.  I have so much trouble sleeping during pregnancy, from hip pain to insomnia to headaches - something usually keeps me awake.  I was originally getting some for my mother, but decided to try it myself as well.  I've been using it for 3-4 weeks now (often, but not every night) and I've been getting the best, most restful sleep I've ever gotten during pregnancy!  With my last pregnancy, I even ended up sleeping on the floor most nights.  Not this time - I'm sleeping like a baby!  Thanks!  S.M.
