When I reported last April on my first couple of weeks of experience with Magic Balm on a 15 year-old spider bite, I promised to follow up with more details. I could see progress in those first weeks, but I could not project the amount of time it would take to assimilate all of the scar tissue. As I reported, I was applying the Balm twice daily, morning and night. That process has been continued now for about ten months, and steady but slow progress has continued to be visible. I can now project that it will take maybe about two more months to complete the process. I estimate the use of about three of the small jars of Magic Balm over the ten months. I find that Balm does not have much impact on old scars where the skin has been discolored but it does work on scar tissue.
Truly magical I was surprised at the effectiveness of this balm. I put it on two little dry spots I have on my arms every winter. They usually last several months no matter what I apply to them. After just one application the dry spots had vanished! No other balm has ever achieved this result. I'm recommending it to everybody with light eczema.
I discovered your Magic Stick while visiting Charlottesville, VA and stopping into a pharmacy for a chapstick. Instead, I purchased the Magic Stick and used that on my lips. Then I used it on any other ailment that came up. Now I use it on my daughter any time she bumps or bruises or cuts or scrapes herself. It is MAGIC. I have personally handed it out to friends and family, also co-workers, for years now. THANK YOU for making this absolutely amazing product! (Last night I gave it to the neighbor!)
I was given a sample of the Magic Balm a few years ago and I am hooked! I don't ever need to buy anything for mosquito bites, cuts, scrapes, itchy bug bites ever again. I even put this on my dog's cuts and scratches. My neice will only use the "magic stuff" on her cuts and itchy skin now when bugs bite. Nothing else works/worked! This is a product that I will continue to buy as long as it's sold! LOVE IT!
I have had a dry patch of flaking skin on the palm of my hand since I was 10. Doctors have diagnosed it as many things from psoriasis to excema, to just plain contact dermatitis. They've prescribed all kinds of creams and ointments to no avail. I've tried hundreds of over the counter, herbal, organic, and just plain homegrown remedies. Nothing has ever worked. Yesterday I received the organic magic balm stick, and within a few hours I noticed more results than I've seen in years! I can see my hand! It hasn't even been a full 24 hours and I can see the deep cracks in my skin begin to heal. I am so thrilled to finally find a product that works! Thank you so much!
I have been using your organic olive oil hand cream for less than a week and it has already stopped the cuts and bleeding on my hands from the cold and dryness which were worse this winter than ever before. All of my old standby creams failed.
...I will be going on vacation next weekend and want to make sure I have it [Magic Balm]. Thank God for your gift. This is the only thing that completely heals my eczema. I will order some more in the future my niece and the diabeticae for my Mom. I love your products! Keep doing what you do!
ich bin begeistert , denn die Seife hilft mir meine Haut straff und geschmeidig zu halten. Die Creme "SHEA BUTTER" ist besser als manche Lotion Ich danke dem Team TRANSLATION: [I am excited because the soap helps me to keep my skin firm and supple. The cream SHEA BUTTER is better than some lotion I thank the team]
I wanted to tell you I love using your bar soap on my hair followed by the organic apple cider vinegar rinse. My hair is so soft and perfect.
"Sensual" perfectly describes the intoxicating aroma of the Massage and Body Oil. I use it directly after showering and always receive compliments on the fragrance by men and women. They ask for the perfume name, and are surprised it is a pure, organic body oil.
My sister introduced me to your balm product about 2 years ago. I didn't have reason to use it until recently when I received 2nd degree burns on my left hand and upper torso. I have been using it on my hand and am looking forward to using it on the rest, (the PT has just started using it on the healed upper torso part) of the wound and measures it weekly. Will let you know of the progress but the hand has healed and is getting original color back quickly.
I am obsessed with your "Mom's Belly Balm!" Prior to using it, I had been switching off between other organic belly balms and thought I was happy with them, until my sister sent me yours in the mail. I can no longer use any other! I love just how easily it rolls on and I could not believe how amazing it makes my skin feel. I am 6 1/2 months pregnant and my stomach looks beautiful, feels amazing and has not itched at all. i don't think it felt this wonderful before my pregnancy! I was so impressed with the quality of your product that I just had to find your site to try some others. Thank you!!!
I did a lot of online searching before I found a company that truly offers organic. LOVE your products, thank you for your time on the phone today ~ I am sensitive to both fragrance & many oils/botanicals - a lip balm with only organic olive oil is a great option for people like me :)
Absolutely love the foot cream! It's non-greasy and heals/repairs overnight -- the best ever. My mother and grandmother are recent converts -- thanks so much for offering such a wonderful product.
I went into Whole Foods yesterday with extremely dry, cracked hands, hoping I would be able to find a hand cream that worked for me (I'd already tried several, including a prescription product). Your hand cream was recommended to me by one of the staff members, so I gave it a shot. I've been using it for only one day and my hands are completely transformed. This is the only thing that's worked for me. Your cream has saved my hands!
Thank you for your wonderful product, Organic Shea Butter [and] Solid Lotion ( Rose). Protected skin from this harsh winter. Lovely scent. I found your website and am ordering more of your products. Thank you
I've been meaning to tell you : I was a cherry petroleum based chapstick addict for 30 years and it wasn't until I started using your red chapstick [Lip balm] that I was finally able to beat my addiction and permanently switch to something organic. THANK YOU !

The skin on my face was so dry that it actually cracked, under my eye. Touching that part of my face, even by accident cause me a lot of pain. I used your Magic Skin balm under on it and the next morning the crack was just a line! Awesome, awesome product.
I have the driest lips ever to grace this planet. By this time of the year, they're a mess. Fortunately, I happened upon some of your lip balm. The olive oil, I think, is what does the trick. And there's no unnatural smell. Altogether a wonderful product, and I'll be picking up several more to give out in my gift packs this year. Thank you so much for saving my lips.

I just had to write to tell you how great the magic stick is! I am a runner and often have chafing from my running bra and water belt. It is so uncomfortable and takes forever to heal, not to mention the scars the running bra can leave! Your magic stick heals the chafing within 48 hours - it is amazing!! I can't live without it!
I just wanted to tell you personally that I am in love with your products. Seriously, every one I have tried has been amazing. Right now I'm hooked on your Magic Stick Skin Balm, which I use as chapstick and on cuts, etc. My lips are very prone to serious cracking/bleeding, and it usually sticks around for weeks no matter what I use to treat them. But the Magic Stick just cured them within 24 hours like it was nothing, and I've been using it ever since. I also scar super easily, and it's helping with that, too. Your Protecting and Rejuvenating Hand Cream (Moisturizers) is also lovely. Really moisturizing and sweet smelling (every time I put it on people sniff the air and ask what the great smell is). Anyway, I don't know how often you hear feedback, so I wanted to say fantastic job! I’ll be a lifelong customer. Warm Regards,
...we started riding the Mustang, Raina... turned a little skittish like and hit the back of my knee, knocking the kneecap out. Last time I had the kneecap knocked out, it was 6 weeks in a serious knee brace and the time before that, in a cast. So, knowing how long these things take to heal, I was very annoyed to think I would be off my feet 3 months! Searching the internet to see about exercises, treatments and remedies, all said ice and rest for at least two weeks. Five days into this, I suddenly thought of magic balm, slathered magic balm on my knee, and the next morning the knee swelling was down, and I could actually walk on it. Kept putting the magic balm on twice and three times a day. It's been two weeks last Tuesday, I did this September 1st, and yesterday I could walk down stairs fairly normally. This morning I walked up the stairs, forgetting I had ever dislocated my knee! Yes, I am still taking it easy... strengthening, resting (OK, not so much, but still..) and taking the vitamins. But it is the Magic Balm that was the turning point! It has cut off at least 7 weeks off recovery time! Usually, 6 weeks in a brace and 4-6 weeks rehab! I figure I'll be riding again next week!
Just a note, my husband cut a piece of his finger off on a chimney cap July 4th weekend. As if you would slice the top of your finger off, he sliced a piece off from the side (it was still hanging on the top of the chimney cap). Some of the guys wanted to take him to the emergency room, as it had cut so far into the finger, the tendon was exposed. I knew they could glue the piece back on, but it was risky and the chance of infection very high these days in the hospitals. So, I packed it, blood and all, with magic balm, wrapped it, changed the bandage every day for a week and repacked it with the balm. Three weeks later, the hole in the side of the finger was just a dent and now it is barely a noticable scar. Comfrey root is amazing. Thanks for your great product, saved me a day in the emergency room!
My ... bra caused a horrible skin rash which turned into huge fluid filled blisters that covered my whole right breast, my arm and under arm and part of my back. The blisters turned into wounds with scabs. This hurt like bloody hell for 3 weeks and still hurts. I could not wear clothes. The web sites about this said formaldihyde gas was coming out of the bra ... Your Magic Balm saved my life. It is healing my wounds and stopping the pain. The web sites say the blisters cause scarring but I think Magic Balm will prevent that. With deepest gratitude I Thank You . I can never fully express how good this product is and I will never be with out it.

Hello- My father has been using the Diabeticae foot cream. He says that out of all the creams he has used in the past this is the only one that soothes his feet and legs and feels no pain. I was wondering you distribute this product in New York City area and can provide a store listing of where I can get it. He ran out of it and I would like to head to the store to purchase few jars. Thank you for producing an excellent product that actually works! Ruth
Hi, I buy your soaps, unscented hand creme, citrus shea butter (thank you for using glass vs plastic jars!) and lip balm. thank you for making such lovely organic products! When I travel, I try to find hotels that are as 'organic' as possible (food, sheets, bedding, bath products, windows that actually open and such). could you please tell me which hotels put your products in bathrooms for guests? i would prefer to use those hotels/resorts/B&Bs on the theory that if they care enough to provide your organic soaps for guests, all else must be great quality as well. thanks. marilyn
I am still using your [Diabeticae Foot Cream] and my Dr. actually was raving about it last time I saw her (this was last week). She is the one that actually has diabetes. She had an episode and it was your cream that soothed and calmed the problem.
--Susan in OR
I bought the rose shea butter last summer in Charlottesville, and have loved it beyond measure! I just ordered the honey lip balm (yellow top) and it's superb -- soft on the lips and smells wonderful, like warm honey. I also purchased the "rejuvenating hand cream" and love it, too. Just can't say enough good things about these products! There is not a better-smelling rose scent out there. Thank you, Brigit!

I was given a gift set for christmas last year. I just opened it to use on my hands. I work in a resaturant and I am constantly washing my hands and they have progressively gotten dryer. I used the olive oil hand cream, and it cleared up the dryness and made them very very smooth. Thank you for making such a great product.
I received some [...] Diabeticae products from Brigit True Organics some time back, and have been meaning to mention my experience. They’re extremely pleasant to use, and while not curative (type 2 diabetes is not currently curable), they offer palliative care. The one I’ve used most is the foot cream, and if you’re a diabetic, you might want to give it a go. It feels good, it smells good, and it seems to help my feet and shins feel better.

...I have sucessfully used your lavender soap and peppermint oil soap. LOVE them. I use them on my hair daily, and have been very pleased.
Heck, you guys make the finest dang soap ever! I use the "Harry" on my hair, as a shampoo and it's great, but the Magic is the Bomb! [Balm]. I put it on mosquito bites and no itch, I put it on scrapes and they heal overnight, I put it on scars and they slowly fade, I put it on burns and they don't even get red or blisters! AMAZING!
--Jon Mark, Bethesda, MD
I recently had the eyelid surgery (not Lasik) but where they lift the eyebrow and cut out the extra skin flap that makes the eyelid droop. Your MAGIC BALM is FANSTASTIC!!! I’ve used it ever since I finished the prescription provided by my doctor. I’ve been raving about this to everyone! Thank you for such a wonderful product!! And yes, by all means, use any comment I made that will help your business! I’m tempted to give it for Christmas presents!

My chiropractor in CT, Dr. Paul Szwez has an amazing man working for him, David Wooley. David is very knowledgable in organics and healing. They use homopathic remedies. David referred me to comfrey root. I spent days looking for a compound that had comfrey as a main ingredient and found your "Magic Balm" in a health food store in Bonita, FL. When four horses were chased through a barbed wire fence by a stallion, and the vet was on a "routine barn call" and would be at least two hours - never did show up, by the way - I put Magic on the leg which was cut to the tendons, and all the other gashes. To make a longer story short, the "Magic Balm" healed the leg and gashes.
I wanted to let you know that some customers were in the store tonight, talking with me about your product. They had bought Magic Balm for their son when he broke his ribs because they'd heard about the healing properties of comfrey. They said that it healed his ribs in 2 weeks. I thought you'd like to know that.

I wanted to let you know how amazing and healing I have found the magic stick to be. This past Thursday I took a nasty spill on my bike and bruised my cheek and chin, split my lip, along with some road rash across my chin and face. After 3 days of using the magic stick the bruises are completely healed, the lip is almost healed, and the road rash is almost gone. I have also used the product on scars and burns, but this past weekend was really what I had to write about. Thank you for such an amazing product. Please feel free to post this on your website if you deem it appropriate.
