"I am very impressed with the Restorative Facial Oil. I generally have dry skin on parts of my face but a few weeks ago, I noticed an unusually dry area on the side of my face that was flaky and looked like a patch of eczema. I tried a few other moisturizing creams but they made no difference. I used your facial oil for only 3 nights in a row and by the third day not only was the patchy area completely gone but my entire face was smooth, soft and silky."
"On June 23rd, 2013 I was coming back from my sister’s home in Sechelt, waiting for the ferry. At the Healingscents Kiosk they were selling to all the punters as per usual. And I, as per usual, was feeling the wrath of burning cuticles. Thick, red, and bleeding, I thought I would just chew my way out of hell and back in to nail purgatory!
Mmm…what’s this? Another product claiming miraculous cures for every known skin disorder including neuropathy due to leprosy. Well, $24.00 for one ounce is a hefty price, but after 40 years of trying everything, I know I am going to open my wallet once again.
And I do. But first the lady stops me from pouring copious amounts in my effort to ease the pain. No, no she says. Just a dab, that’s all you need.
I go home. And the first thing I do is stop at “City Nails” the cheapest Vietnamese nail salon I know of in Maple Ridge. Please, I say, just trim my cuticles. “Peek a koloor” says the technician. “No! No chemicals, just trim the cuticles and buff my nails!” “OOOh, yoo got bad skin, very bad!” “Yes, I know…I have tried every thing.” “You need vaseline! Eeevereee night” “Yes, I do that, nothing helps”
I come home, relieved from carry 4lbs of excess cuticles from my finger tips and pack for 2 1/2 weeks of flyfishing. I am dedicated to trying this Tamanu Oil! Will it work? Was it a waste of money? Surely nothing will help.
I fish, I wipe dirt from pots and pans, I tie fly line, I drop slimy fish back in to the water…I get 2nd degree burns on my hands in the 38C heat. In the morning, after meals, and at night I apply the Tamanu Oil. Cuticles are not building up, fingertips are not burning. I decide to apply oil to the sores that never heal on my upper arms. (The 4th picture down shows the remaining scarring from the sores on my upper arms.)
Vacation is over. I am home and scrubbing out the trailer. Yes, my hands are still red. Likely always will be due to my pale thin skin…BUT LOOK AT MY NAILS!!!
Cuticle growth has slowed! Hang nails are near ziltch! And I have hard, strong nails that I CANNOT even if I wanted to, peel off! The sores on my arm have withered down to small white scars after months of bleeding and scabbing over.
Will this continue? I don’t know. But after trying every product I could find and afford, it seems like this might be what my poor old cuticles needed. What hidden treasures the Sunshine Coast has!"

"My daughter is using Restorative Facial Oil which I gave her and she loves it. She took a chance and used it on her baby’s acne and it worked! His skin is clear now. Thanks very much!"

"I bought your Wellness Organic Hydration Oil with rosemary, bergamot and lavender and ravensara. I’ve been using it on my face (I know it is for body) but my skin has never been better! Thank you! I am a make-up artist in Vancouver. I will be passing your product on very influential in make-up and hair in the film industry in Vancouver. Thank you for making a great product!"
"We recently came across your booth at an outdoor market and my husband spotted the blend labeled ‘Headaches’. Knowing I ‘get a few’, he said “You should try this one…” I’m so glad I did. I use it often, whether I have a headache or not J, but when I do have a mild to moderate headache I find almost instant relief by applying to my third eye area, my temples and a little under each nostril. The relief lasts 30-45 minutes and then, if necessary, I reapply. As well, I often mix a few drops with water and use with a ceramic/candle diffuser for general aromatherapy. I recommend giving this one a try – it works for me every time!"

"My niece brought me a gift of various Healingscents products from her vacation in Belize. I have been using the Mend Hydration Oil on a knee that bothers me. It relieves the aching as nothing else has ever done.
Thank you!! "

"I just wanted to write to tell you that you have an amazing product line. I have tried so many other lines in the past, but I find yours the best of them all (I keep going back to yours as my choice). I love the fact that they are all natural, and the scents are perfectly created. I have tried all of your products, and they are all equally fantastic, but I want to single out your new Freedom Lotion. For an unscented lotion, that has a wonderful faint chocolate scent, this is the best I have ever found (its not greasy, yet it leaves a silky/soft feeling to your skin). I can really notice the quality that you put into your products, when using them on my body. I can go on and on, but just to wrap up, thank goodness for Healingscents! I sincerely hope that they will always be available for me to buy/order.
All the best, and talk to you soon."

“Restorative Facial Oil - Everything Oil is a better name for this amazing product. Not only does it help help my worst zits (really) but it does wonders on my knees and elbows as well. I have a mild case of psoriasis and I have found that a few regular applications of face oil to my trouble spots achieves the same difference as my prescription creams, except that it is all natural and smells better!”
“My job (a research biologist) involves long hours of critical thinking and sitting in front of a computer. Both of these activities can be mentally exhausting. I used to rely on strong coffee to make it through the afternoon. All that has changed since I discovered Leah’s Revival Blend. I keep a misting bottle containing water and a few drops of Revival next to my desk. It works – better than coffee!”
