Here are a few notes of feedback from recipients of our Herbal Self-Care Kits:

“The herbal resources have been a wonderful addition. For me personally, the rose rescue drops and spirit nurturing spray have been helpful additions to my wellness plan.  Your kindness has been especially encouraging during this time.” – local counselor serving first responders

“I am one of the counselors that have been responding to the tragedy in Orlando over the last two weeks. Today I was at the center when someone came in and brought bags of healing offerings. I took one with the intention of bringing it to a friend. Today was another hard day, and by the time I got home I realized that I was having a hard time letting go of the stories that I have heard, and was in tears by the time I pulled into my driveway. As I put the bag down on my table, I decided to take a look. I realized that I think I picked this up for me. There is a sachet with herbs and a rescue spray that I immediately saw- I have not slept well in over a week – and when I saw the card that said “Your heart is a star” I started crying. Thank you for this gift. You cannot know what it means.” – local counselor serving community directly affected by tragedy

“Thank you so much for your help and gift bags during this difficult time. They have come very handy for our staff, counselors and clientele. We appreciate your support.” – Hispanic Family Counseling Center

Thank you so much, the Counselors and staff really needed them as well as some of our clients.” – Nancy with Hispanic Family Counseling Center

“I attended a free mediation and as I was leaving I admired all the free herbs that were out for people to take to help with the grieving, stress, and heartache we were all feeling. I didn’t feel like I deserved to take any of those because I felt like other people would be more deserving. But there was a woman there tending to the herbs who really encouraged me to take some. I often have trouble accepting gifts from people, but she was like an angel there to make sure I got what I needed in that moment. I’m amazed at all that all of the volunteers and people involved with the Grief Care Project have down and continue to do for our community. It makes me so happy knowing Orlando is receiving all the TLC it deserves and needs. While handling all the work of the Grief Care Project, my husband reached out to the Florida School of Holistic Living Community Clinic for assistance in helping him (with additional health needs). And though you have all been working so hard helping an entire grieving community, you still managed to make time for him and his needs. I can’t say enough how helpful you have all been to me and my family. I wanted to take the time to write to you to let you know how much I appreciate all that you do. I believe in angels and they are people just like you.” – Orlando resident
