Natural Protection

On a casual trip into a natural health shop in Puerto Escondido in search of natural suncream, I didn’t find protection from the sun, but protection from everything else possible. There were potions, lotions, amulets and idols as well as lots of healing herbs…

Candles

Anything you want there is a candle for it…

Herbs 3

Prostate, kidneys, nerves, dry cough…traditional herbs for all.

  1. Hmmm.. if skin cancer was a problem in this area, I’m sure there would be a product for it. Maybe the big Pharma people are lying to us. 🙂
