Bug Be Gone

Bug Be Gone worked for our team on a mission trip in the Amazon Jungle! Everyone who used DEET was bitten and those of us who used Bug Be Gone were not. I'm really happy not to be putting poison on my skin. -Debra Baker 

Bone Mend 

The bone mend tincture has worked form the inside out! Thank you for that gift. I am not sure where i would be without it. -Andrea 


I was given ignatia by Debra Swanson because I was having trouble with feelings of anger regarding a family death. Shortly after taking it my aggression subsided and I felt calm and was able to deal with my family situation better. -Micheal 

 Consult/Respiratory Issues 

We started using D-Congest and Easy Air at the first sign of sinus problems. We used to get sinus infections 2-3 tunes a year and have had to use Anti-Biotics to get rid of it. I used to also get Pneumonia with sinus infections. Since using those formulas we no longer get sinus infections and i haven't had pneumonia in approximately 2 years. - Sue and Bill 

 Teething Gum Rub 

Dancing Willows Teething gum rub saved our trip to New Zealand! 24 hours of travel with a sick kid can be really hard. This trip was not because it soothed our son so much. He loves the taste and it quickly and dramatically calms him down. Thanks a million for your help Dancing Willow! -Kyla 

 Consult/Mobility Tonic 

I would like to reccomend the mobility tonic for anyone experiencing joint/nerve pain. I had smashed my finger and for 10 months experienced a sharp pain in the joints. Debra Swanson, clinical herbalist, gave me Mobility Tonic and Willow Bark. I noticed a great improvement within one week. When I woke up in the morning I could actually move my finger. -Julie

 Skullcap Tinture/ Anger/Irritablity/Depression

I was skeptical about the effectiveness of natural medicine when I came to Dancing Willow Herbs for help. The Dancing Willow Team recommended that I try their skullcap formula for anger issues I was having. Wow! I am shocked at how it took the edge off my feelings of anger/irritability. I felt more myself in a short amount of time. Based on my experience with Dancing Willow Herbs I would now highly suggest anyone and everyone who is interested to check out what they have to offer.  -Alison 

 Elderberry Syrup 

Elderberry Syrup and LNG Ease is the best chest and cold Lung rattling cure that i have ever tried. My lungs were rattling and i was coughing and within one hour after taking these two products I felt so much better. I slept straight through the night that night without coughing.-Jay 

 Mobility Tonic 

My wife uses Mobility Tonic to combat her arthritis, we know this really works. She always puts it in her morning tea, but a few mornings that I've prepared her tea i had forgotten the tonic. After those few days she complained that her wrists had been furring more and asked how many drops i put in her tea. We discovered from this experience how well Mobility Tonic actually works. -Nicholas
