DRAGON'S BLOOD AND LOCAL HONEY AT THE HEALTH NUT
Kristin Volberg, owner of the Health Nut, told us an interesting anecdote about one of her employees. Before coming to work one day recently, Linda Ownings, tore her arm pretty badly on a nail. She tried putting a band-aid on it before she came to work but it didn't cover it very well. Michelle Picco, assistant manager, suggested she put Herb Pharm Dragon's Blood on it. This is an herbal tincture from South America that has been used for centuries in those countries to heal wounds. Linda applied it and it instantly sealed and scabbed. It then healed quickly without any problem. The Health Nut now has Dragon's Blood in stock. The Health Nut has also begun to carry Al's Bees Honey from Reno, Nev. This honey is very much like the local honey the Health Nut used to carry which is no longer available.
