“Wow, just opened the fermented veggies that we made with Ilah Jarvis and they kick some serious ass! Must get more starter and make more!!” -Janine Anderson
“Ilah is friendly and knowledgeable about making lotions, creams and lip balm. Her relaxed, mellow attitude towards measurements and instruction made me feel comfortable about trying to make some on my own. My first batch of handmade lotion, created in my kitchen, turned out beautifully and it was great fun to do.”-Annie Kenny
