It was in Bridgehampton on the sidewalk in front of a darling little shop, J. MacLaughlin, which sponsored the event. I had put together goody bags for anyone who made a donation to the shelter, or visited with the lovely adoptable dogs and the wonderful volunteers who brought them out looking for their Forever Homes.
In the bags were tiny sample jars of Halo’s amazing Cloud Nine Herbal Healing Salve. I started getting rave reviews for the salve on my Facebook page – Barbi in Sagaponack said that she had been using it on her dog, cats and even her horse for nicks, cuts and irritations. However, her friends in the Hamptons had realized it was great for their own little boo-boos and were hoarding their small jars for any healing they needed!
It says right on the jar “Helps support healing for cuts, wounds, abrasions, and scabby areas within days. Also helps soothe hot spots.” and it doesn’t say that people cannot try it themselves! Barbi begged me for another sample jar and I shipped off the only one I could find – with her promise she’d keep it only for when her Corgi Bean (who came from CorgiAid rescue) really needed it. Those other Hamptons gals wouldn’t make any such promise!
