5stars - "I ordered the rosemary soap and it's epic. I also ordered a soap with mint in it and it's divine as well! It came in the mail in just a couple days so I know I can reorder when I'm low and it'll be here when I need it! Definitely recommend!" - Alisha Lockhart
"I just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful products that you have. I have fallen in love with your soaps, (which make all my shower experiences lovely). One of my favorite things upon receiving your packages is to open it slowly, and inhale deeply. I then take every soap out individually and smell them. Give me that being close to nature smell even when I’m stuck in the Michigan cold winter. I decided to explore other items on your site as well. I was getting a tattoo soon and decided to order your tattoo dressing. It seemed to really help the healing of my tattoo and was nice to know that after I had so much that was artificial put on my skin that something natural good keep it looking nice. Thanks again for your lovely products and personal cards each time I receive an order. They make it extra special, like receiving a gift from a friend."
"I wanted to tell you that I love your soap. I purchased the Lavender. I have been having issues with soaps and creams causing rashes, dryness, or excess oil. A friend of mine recommended your product and so far it is great! I feel clean. No residue left on my skin. My skin is not dried out nor do I have extra oils throughout the day! It offers plenty of suds and the aroma is AMAZING too! Thank you for such a wonderful product."

"I was at the Eco Fest this weekend in Floyd and had the opportunity to meet you. My husband and I purchased some of your soap and bath salts. I got the Lavender and my husband got soap that has patchouli in it. I can’t remember the name but my goodness does it smell good! I could smell him all in the way in the living room while he was taking a shower. Mmmm. Delicious! I can’t stop sniffing him. I used my lavender soap this morning and loved it, too! I did have to go down to the antique store and get a few soap dishes since I didn’t purchase one at the Eco Fest. The soap dishes are awesome as well. I just wanted to tell you how much we love your soap and we will continue to purchase it. I hope to see you at other events in the future!"

"Thanks, again, Tara for your wonderful soaps!!!"
"Wow!! Just tried your soap – the lavender. Very subtle scent, but the texture and the lathering were terrific. I truly felt pampered! Your products are terrific! Thanks."
"I have been using GreenDeva soap for 12 years. I am almost 50 years old and have very smooth, moisturized skin. Most people usually underestimate my age because of my skin, especially on my hands, neck and face. Before using Greendeva soaps I used a $12 bar from a very well known cosmetic company. I was skeptical about switching to GreenDeva soaps, but I preferred the completely natural ingredients. I figured what the heck I will give them a try. I am still presently surprised after 12 years! I would not change my soap now for any reason!! Thank you Greendeva!"

"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful your products are, especially your soaps! I've been using them for over a year now and they are the only thing I've ever found that cures my hormonal acne. I love using them on my face and know that I'm not covering myself with harsh chemicals. Also, your prices are extremely reasonable. I was at Whole Foods the other day and they had soaps smaller than yours for over $5.00! Ridiculous! Thanks so much for sending me soaps all the way to Michigan, it may be a ways, but it's very much appreciated."
Your devoted customer,
5 stars "Love their soaps! It's at the top of my purchase list every year at FloydFest!" - Casey Piotrowski

Herbal Tea Blends Testimonials:
"My wife and I have been using ‘Wanna Sleep’ tea for about a year and a half now. It gives us tremendous results. We have a cup of it just before bed. It doesn’t put us to sleep, it just LETS us sleep. It is calming, and relaxing. If we need to get up during the night, it lets us get right back to sleep. We both heartily endorse it as a simple, natural sleep aid."
-Ed and Terri Rubringer
Skin Dressing Testimonials:
"Sorry gross finger wound, but I just have to advertise this kick ass skin dressing. I still have some nerve damage but I can only imagine what this scar could have been."
- Allie Rowland
Martha Bryan - I just bought your skin dressing at Hoggetowne. Oh my goodness I could not bend my pinkie finger without it cracking for months and have tried a lot of products. The next morning after I tried the Skin Dressing my finger was totally different. I now carry it in my purse. I hope you will be at Olustee Festival in Lake City, Fl. I will really stock up on your products. Thank you!
"I love your skin dressing! At my house we call it “The Miracle Goo”. I was a live in nanny for almost 2 years and I have never seen any other product work so well for diaper rash in all of my life! My father uses it on his hands for his chronic dry skin. Cuts and scraps don’t even need band-aids when you use a little skin dressing on them! They even work great on bug bites and bruises! I actually carry a jar with me wherever I go in my purse. I never know when someone might need a little “Miracle Goo”."
She wrote the testimonial (below) about her 12 year old daughter's severe burn on her arm that was healed with Skin Dressing. Her daughter was supposed to get skin grafted as the burn was so severe, but it did not require surgery and has no scar, thanks to GreenDeva's Skin Dressing!
"Two years ago my then 11 year old daughter spilled boiling water over her arm. It was burned from wrist to elbow. The doctor said she would scar along the entire length of the arm. The worst was a 1 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch almost 1/8 inch deep burn right at the bend of her wrist. I was horrified and heartbroken that she would suffer such a severe scar. The next bad news was that if it didn’t close on its own they would abraid it (cut the skin). As you can imagine my daughter was terrified. This was a Tuesday.
By Saturday we knew we were going back on Monday for the treatment. I spoke with and showed you her arm. You recommended the skin dressing. We tried it that night before bed. I didn’t think it would do much. By morning her deep wound had closed 1/8 of and inch or more all the way around and was half as deep. That is 1/4 inch of new skin OVERNIGHT! No exaggeration; I wish I had photos.
Within a week the wound was closed at the wrist and the upper part was completely gone. At the end of the month she had a “dirty spot” where the hole had been. Two years later it is slightly darker if you turn her arm just the right way into the light. The skin is smooth. I can never ever say thank you enough.
Since my first experience I have recommended the skin dressing to a lady at the gym. She used it on a 3″ long incision on her face, you can’t see any scar now.
My son has a jar at work, his manager had a severe 2nd degree burn a week old and used the skin dressing, it faded quickly.
Today I ordered two jars for my cousin who poured gas on an open flame, he is badly burned and the doctors say it will be a year before they know if he will scar….. not if I have any say."
"Hello, I met you at the fest in Holly, MI this August. I had some shrapnel in my head and you gave me some drawing salve. I must say it is the best!!!!"
- Dennis A. Gentz, U.K.
"Tara, here are the photos of before (left) and after (right) of the spider bite and scrapes that were infected. I used both the drawing dressing and the skin dressing to help heal the wounds. Thank you for having these wonderful salves!"

"Skin cancer the size of a quarter was removed from my nose. The first picture was taken the day the stitches were removed.
The doctor who performed the surgery was so upset with my requesting to use my skin dressing instead of his petroleum based product that he slammed the door of the examination room after the stitches were removed.
He said he would not be responsible if the healing of my nose is not adequate due to my not using their products. I insisted on using our skin dressing and I was dismissed from their office with a bandaid on my nose.
This second photo was taken one week after the stitches were removed.
When I returned for the optional follow-up visit, he examined my nose and said it was healing exceptionally well, that I would not even need dermabrasion. I asked him if he remembered me. He looked at my chart and said “oh yes, I remember you!” I offered him a sample of our skin dressing and he refused it, said that it obviously worked very well, but he could not endorse it.
This final photo was taken 1 month after the stitches were removed. Now it has been two years since the surgery and most people cannot even tell that I had surgery on my nose!"

Stacy Chambers - I bought the organic skin dressing at a Ren Faire....I think two years ago....I had burned myself badly with a curling iron and the doctor had given me Mupuricyn ointment which is basically a prescription strength Neosporin. I was allergic to it and it made my burn even worse.
The lady put some of this organic skin dressing on me right there in the tent and I felt instant relief! So here I am two years later....I have horrible razor burn having just gotten out of the shower. I can't find my boyfriend's aftershave because we just moved and everything is mostly still packed up.
I find this skin dressing and it looks as fresh as the day I bought it....put it on my legs and again....instant relief. I figured it was time to leave a testimonial! So thankful for this stuff!
