Herma’s News – Happy Mother’s Day! Open to Walk-Ins

And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed. – Maya Angelou

Dear Customers,

To all daughters and sons, no matter your age or circumstance, we hope that there will always be a woman in your heart that has held a profound positive influence on your life. That even if they have passed, on a day such as Mother’s Day, you can take pause and say, “They existed. We can be and be better because they existed.”.

And let not this Mother’s Day pass without showing those blessing our lives today, just how much they are cherished.

From all of us at Herma’s, Have a happy Mother’s Day!

We are Open to walk-ins!

Unique Gifts for Mother’s Day

Deortegas Hojiblanca Extra Virgen Olive Oil


photo by Deortegas
The perfect olive oil drizzled over salads and veggies.
Intense green oil that presents an immense range of aromas – fruity, fresh grass, green tomato, artichoke, green banana, even finding floral and red fruit suggestions.
In the mouth the vegetable flavors predominate. It has a sweet entrance with slight bitterness to green fruit, a touch of progressive itching and final almond aftertaste. Blatantly provocative. – Deortegas

Ceder’s Pink Rose

Handcrafted with Rare & Exotic Botanicals, Distilled Non-Alcoholic Spirit

An irresistible blend of classic gin botanicals including juniper, combined with subtle notes of rose and sweet hibiscus. Better than any bouquet of flowers.

Take 1 part Ceder’s Pink Rose and 2 parts Tonic. Use garnish. Serve Pink Rose in a glass with raspberries and a sprig of mint.
