Winter Comfort Custom Tailored to You Everyone’s health needs are unique. Whether you need some elderberry syrup because you feel like you’re catching a cold, some Siberian ginseng to help shake the winter blues, more minerals for graying hair, something to grease your aching joints, or some preservative-free lotion for chapped hands, there are many ways we can add a little more comfort during winter.

Stock Up During Our 40th Anniversary Sale If you’re worried and stressed, or just plain tired, you’ve probably been depleting your resources, and that’s why keeping some handy remedies in your cupboard can get you back on track. This is the perfect time to do it too. With our 40th Anniversary sale going on, you can stock up like a squirrel. If you hate going out to shop in the cold, go online while you sip some nice soothing tea or organic hot chocolate.

Friendly Experts Here to Help Finding those treasures that keep you feeling good is exactly why we have herbalists, nutritionists, and other experts to help. Who doesn't need a little boost to get back to feeling good now and again? Feeling good is just as contagious as feeling bad. Your holidays can be cheerful or unbearable, and a lot of it has to do with how you feel overall. If you have sniffles and are dragging, it's hard to bring out that holiday spirit. If you're warm and enthusiastic, your friends, family, and coworkers will find it much easier to be energized too.

Well, this is your invitation to come see how we can get you feeling great. We want to share the gift of good health with each and every one of you. Thank you so very much for the joy of seeing you happy and healthy throughout the year. And even more, for trusting us over the past 40 years when you’re not feeling so great, being willing to try new things, and for the opportunity to be of service to you.

Happy Holidays and a Joyful New Year!

Best in health to you,
The Whole Village Green Apothecary Team
