Dry Skin in Winter – Find a cure!

Reduced humidity combined with colder temperatures during winter months leads to very dry skin. Many people suffer with itchy, scaly skin depleted of moisture. This is called the winter itch.

We suggest using Beekman 1802 Goat’s Milk Body care Products.

Goat’s milk is a key ingredient in all of the B.1802 products.

Why is goat’s milk such a sought after ingredient in body care? Goat’s milk soaps don’t dry out your skin the way other soaps do. It is very gentle and has caprylic acid, which brings the pH level of goat’s milk closer to the level found in human skin. This allows the goat’s milk body care to more easily soak into our human skin than that of other milk based products.

Your dry, winter skin is probably dying of thirst, so go ahead and use these nourishing lotions and soaps to prevent dryness. Your skin will lap up the moisture and be, oh, so healthy.

Olive Oil Tip of the Week

At Herma’s we carry over 30 different olive oils from which to choose. All are special and lovely for drizzling, dipping or as an agent for cooking. Come see all we have to offer.

Olive oil is considered a super food for its health, healing and nourishment, which is a great treat for those that love decadence. It can replace butter in all manner of ways while still causing your food to be every bit as delicious. Try flavoring popcorn with it, basting a turkey, dress cooked veggies, even slather it on corn on the cobb. It is also great placed in dressings like for a potato salad.

Cheese Department

Vintage Red Fox Cheddar

Great Super Bowl Cheese Selection!

Belton Farm Great British Cheesemakers

We believe this lovely aged, Red Leicester Cheddar from Belton Farms in the UK would be PERFECT for entertaining during the Super Bowl. Mmm. So yummy!

Red Fox uses a unique recipe which was developed over many years. This along with carefully selected cultures and the skill of our cheese-makers produces an intense and complex blend of sweet and savoury distinctive flavours.

This delicious handcrafted russet-coloured cheese has a cunningly unexpected crunch. The subtle crunch comes from the naturally occurring calcium lactate crystals which form as the cheese matures.

Matured for over 16 months, Red Fox is an aged Red Leicester…Creaminess with a subtle crunch gives a wonderfully rugged overall mouthfeel that you have to experience for yourself. – Belton Farms in the UK
