PediStone's 1 Year Anniversary Celebration
Elissa Greetings!
Isn't this our most spectacular Autumn yet?  Gonzalo and I have new practitioners, products, and plants to introduce you to.  Our upper parking lot welcomes Choisya Ternata 'Sundance' which is a Golden Mexican Orange bush. As for products, we now offer Yonka skincare, Jarrow supplements, and we also have a coptis gelcap in case your antiviral and antibacterial H15 tea was just too bitter for your taste.  The November newsletter will feature our organic Tao of Tea selections and HABA makeup which is additive free.  As for practitioners, we feel our PediStone crew and our newest lineup of practitioners are sensational.  Scroll down to read more about them.  There's a special prize waiting at the bottom...
In joyous health,
Joanna and Gonzalo Flores, LAc's.
