I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful products! Your story truly inspired me as I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer last November. I have completed nine rounds of chemotherapy and have three more to go before moving on to one week of radiation. I have been extremely fortunate as my only significant side effects have been hair loss and extremely irritated skin. The hair loss was remedied with a wig that I am comfortable with, however the skin rash was very annoying. After each chemo treatment it seemed to become more red, itchy, blotchy and uncomfortable. My Oncologist suggested various creams which only seemed to aggravate the problem.
While searching the Internet I discovered Hummingbird Farms!! After reading your story and about your products I ordered Lavender Body Wash, Heavy Cream and the Heavy Cream Trio. I was so excited to receive the products within just a few days. Plus, I was delighted to find a few extra “gift” items included in the box! I immediately used the Body Wash in the shower and applied the Heavy Cream to my damp skin. I left to run errands for the day and quickly realized my skin was less red and the rash and itchy skin had subsided. I repeated the process again on Sunday, Monday and this morning. My skin feels better than it has in weeks and I know I will be much more comfortable as I complete my last rounds of treatment. Prior to receiving your Lavender products, I told my Oncology nurse that I had placed an order and was anxious to see if they helped to resolve my skin problems. She is looking forward to my update this Friday and I am so excited to show her the improvement in my skin! I will also provide her with your website information as she would like to share it with other cancer patients who are undergoing treatment and having similar problems. I will also be telling those I spend each Friday afternoon with, in the treatment room, about your fabulous products!
Thank you again for taking the time and energy to develop products to help not only those going through cancer treatment, but anyone who would like to take care of their skin with pure & natural ingredients. As you know, this is a very difficult journey, but your products have comforted me in so many ways!
Take care and stay healthy!

Debi and the Hummingbird Farms Crew-
I just wanted to send you a note to tell you thank you for providing such a beautiful, wonderful product. I found your product through Melanie & Sophie of Big & Boo fame, and the wonderful BigBoo box you offered a while back. I ordered the box, and quickly opened the lavender citrus hand lotion and immediately fell in love. I've always had bad very dry hands in the winter (to the point they would crack), and this year I didn't have any problems. I've told everyone I know about that hand lotion. The other product I quickly pulled out of the box was the body lotion--it has been wonderful as well. I feel like my skin has stayed so moisturized ever since. I've since used all of the different hand creams (all just as wonderful as the lavender citrus, though that fragrance may be my favorite in the hand cream), and I recently started using the shampoo and conditioner. As someone with super curly hair, I'm very picky about what I was my hair in, and the peppermint lavender shampoo and conditioner has been wonderful. My hair is more controlled, and I more easily go a few days between washing (as recommended by my stylist).
All of that to say, I just ordered another Big Boo Box, and a My Mom's Box, and I can't wait for them to arrive. I look forward to being able to continue to tell people about your wonderful product.
Thank you for your dedication to providing such a quality product!

Dear Hummingbird Farms,
I just wanted to give you praise and thanks for your lotions! For five years I have suffered with a skin problem on my hands. I have been to two different dermatologists, my primary care doctor and neither could find the cause or a cure. I have had extensive allergy testing, been treated with steroids and steroid creams but NOTHING helped! I was basically told to find the heaviest hand lotion available and keep them coated well. Not only was this painful but it was also embarrassing for my hands to be seen. My daughter read about your wonderful lotion and suggested I try it. I have been using your lotion for about two months now and my hands look and feel wonderful!! No more itching, cracking or bleeding!!! It is amazing!!! I am a true loyal customer now for sure! I have even recommended it to others and given them some of mine to try!! Thank you so much for all the care and attention you put into this magnificent product!!
From the BooMama Blog:
I know that Melanie and I have mentioned how much we love the Hummingbird Farms lavender lotion about 932 times. It’s so good. This summer, though, I’ve been using the lavender body oil because – GET READY – it comes in a spray bottle and this is infinitely, INFINITELY better than having to pour it into your hands. Last year I had this crazy rash on my legs that would not go away – went to the dermatologist three or four different times, had tests done, etc. – and while everything is fine now, I have to be really careful about what I put on my skin – so I am SUPER picky about my lotions and oils and salves. This body oil is fantastic, and I haven’t had a single flare-up since I started using it.

" I love this hand cream. I use it everyday. I also use the body wash, but the cream is everything. It absorbs into my skin so well! You don't need much.The pumps works well; t's easy to control how much comes out. My hands are soft and nourished with no oily or greasy feeling. The lavender is subtle, not at all overpowering. This is a great product! I'm going out of town, and I'm taking it with me. I highly recommend it! "
" I have purchased many items with lavender smell. This product is best because it is not a bunch of ingredients to make lavender smell. This is the real deal. The lotion is wonderful. The body wash is is so invigorating. "
" My husband purchased for me hoping I might enjoy as the ingredients are all natural. I DO and so does the family. The body wash lathers up nicely; the body cream absorbs into the skin; using it on my teenage son; his skin gets dry from the Ca sun/ocean and surfing. A little goes a long way on the cream...however PLEASE !!! consider a family size body wash with a pump..my husband and kids seem to confiscate mine..a larger size and we all can share. BTW my husband even likes the scent..reminds us of the many lavender fields in France where we lived many years ago. "
" This is a great product! The lotion and the body wash smell wonderful. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. I have been purchasing from hummingbird farms for several years now, and have never been disappointed with any of their products. Keep up the great work Debi! I am purchasing another set for my Grandmother now. "
" I saw the presentation and almost talked myself out of making the purchase. I certainly did not need another skin care product lining the bathroom counter, but thought the lavender would help with my bedtime/sleep routine. This does so much more. Everything in the presentation is true from the scent to its impact on your skin. For over two years I have had what I call angry areas where it itched, I scratched and the skin flaked. I have tried all kinds of products on these areas. This is the only one that calmed and soothed my skin. It is like my skin sighed a sign a relief and said "Finally!" "
" I can't tell you the difference in my skin. I am 73 and have alot of little white hard things on my legs. Since I have been using this cream my legs are looking so much better. I havetried all kinds of creams for my dry skin on my legs and this is absolutely the BESTEST! Highly Recommend it! "
" I love this cream. It makes my rough, dry skin soft. The lavender scent is Devine. Very relaxing and calming. I bought mine about 6 months ago and I am still using it. Great buy! "
" I purchased this product as I love lavender. I'll be back over and over again to purchase this. The scent is a beautiful soft lavender scent and the cream is exactly as stated heavy. A small amount goes a long way and my hands feel hydrated and amazing after applied. I'm a true aromatherapy person and I use this on my hands before bed to help me go to sleep. This is amazing. "
" This heavy lavender cream is thick and creamy and absorbs right away leaving my skin feeling moisturized and soft. The fragrance of lavender is calming. I will buy again. I keep it on my desk as work and use it often. A real indulgence. "
" Lavender is my favorite fragrance, but so many times they add additional fragrances which ruins the lavender smell. This cream and oil deliver the REAL lavender. I couldn't be happier with the cream which is thick and rich. True lavender fans will love this offering. I certainly do! Thank you Hummingbird Farms!! You have a customer for life! "
" I have very dry skin, and I didn't want a greasy feel that so many heavy creams give. The first thing that struck me when I opened the packaging is how large the bottle is. I had to pump the bottle a few times to get it going, as you do on all pumps like this, but it now flows each and every time. The scent of the cream is strong at first, and then settles into the skin to give you a soft, gentle scent of lovely lavender. I am a HUGE fan of this stuff, and plan on giving it to my girls for Christmas.
The essential oil is a first for me. I have dabbed a bit on my pillow for a calming relaxing sleep. I have also dabbed a bit on a lamp shade in the bedroom. My husband and I both love it.
Thanks to Hummingbird Farms for an amazing product. I will be buying more! :) "
" I have extremely dry skin. I've tried products from the drugstore to expensive lotions in the department stores, with temporary relief. This is thicker, creamy and absorbent - plus good for your skin. Worth the extra money! "
" I purchased this lotion as a Mother's Day gift for my Mom, but of course I had to try the lotion before packing it up in a gift bag. Not only does this lotion smell amazing, it leaves my hands feeling so SO soft! I also recently ordered some philosophy lotion and, hands down (pun intended!), this lotion is much better than philosophy. If you're on the fence, GET THIS LOTION. You will not regret it! "
" This cream lotion has made my hands look 10 years younger. Even after the lotion is wash off my hands, they continue to look younger. No other lotions or creams have had this effect on my hands. I also love the fact that it has no artificial colors, parabens, or preservatives. It is aloe based..not water based. This Lavender Heavy Cream No. 518 is a keeper for me. I cannot believe it has made such a difference in my hands. "
" I have been using Hummingbird products for years and have given the lotions, pillow mist, and soaps to many friends for gifts. The new heavy cream has a wonderful feeling when applied to the skin, which continues to smooth and moisturize for a long period of time. The fragrance is fresh and not overpowering. This cream is top shelf! Thank you Hummingbird Debi. "
" I bought this cream before I had knee replacement surgery. Little did I know what a life saver it would be. Three days before surgery I had to wash my entire body with a strong antiseptic soap. Needless to say it stripped my body of all protective oils. My skin was do dry it was peeling. The long and short of it: this cream got my skin back to normal in two days. In the hospital, every single cream available was tried but nothing helped but this cream. Absolutely fantastic! Thick, creamy but melts into your skin. I ordered again because I don't want to be without it. Thank you for such a fabulous product. I use the lavender oil in a diffuser and my house smells like a lavender field. "
" I have extremely dry and itchy skin--primarily on my legs and hip area. As soon as I received this cream I started using it before I went to bed at night and the difference was immediate! I would wake up with skin that wasn't feeling completely dry and it also kept me from scratching in the night while sleeping. Also, I've been using this right after I shave my legs and this cream is perfect! Not really heavy, just heavily moisturizing. The owner was right about the lavender scent--as soon as you activate the product the scent is heavenly. Love knowing I am using natural products on my skin. Also, I have been putting a drop or two of the oil into my bath water--it's like my own personal spa experience! I can't wait to try other products from Hummingbird Farms--I found her website in Texas and plan to order more things! "
" This is a thick luxurious cream. The lavender scent is real lavender and not overpowering at all. The cream works immediately upon contact and you can see how it's helping your skin as soon as applied. I love creams with aloe Vera as the base. Give this s try, I can't imagine you would be disappointed.
A great benefit is it is made in Texas. Love USA made products and they grow their own lavender. "
" Okay, I've been a huge fan of the Hummingbird Farms Bath & Body Lavender lotion #145 for years. I do quite a bit of sewing and sewing machine repair, thus my hands are often overly dry either from chemicals or from fabric. This is the only lotion that neither leaves my hands greasy nor does it leave an oily residue on fabric. Not leaving a residue on fabric is a biggie for me. The last thing I need are fingerprints on someone else's silk.
My first impression of the Lavender Heavy Cream #518: it's a more robust product. My first thought while putting it on was if the increased weight would make it waxy, but, I'm happy to say, it isn't waxy nor is it greasy. The Lavender is more subdued than in the #145, but its presence is blissfully perfect. I haven't tried it with fabric yet, but i see no reason why I should worry. Thank You Deb and Crew for another wonderful product my co-workers will pilfer while unattended. Sincerely, The Sewinguy!!! "
" My brother in San Antonio turned me on to Hummingbird Farms products. With 15 years in the cosmetic world...I know a quality product when I try it. This cream is very hydrating, soothing & the aroma is addictive. The essential oil is a wonderful add on bonus. I am definitely hooked & will be keeping this in my cosmetic stash. Try it...you won't be disappointed! "
" This product has quickly become my favorite before bedtime. The combination of shea butter and coco butter are the perfect combination to moisturize after I bathe in the evening. The lavender scent is the one added benefit since my husband loves the way it makes me smell. Thank you for including the essential oil with my shipment. I am a believer for sure!!! A few drops in the bath water is all that is needed. So relaxing and just what I need after a busy day.
Thank you thank you thank you for creating this fabulous product. I will definitely be buying more for myself as well as the ladies in my family. "
" I have been using Hummingbird Farm products for years and the Lavender Heavy Cream is my new favorite. My hands and elbows are so soft. No oily feeling. I love the lavender scent and it lasts a long time. This is a great addition to the other amazing natural products they sell. I love the new airless canister. It works great. I definitely recommend this product.for yourself, co-workers, friends or family. "
" I've been using Hummingbird Farms Lavender products since they started and the Heavy Cream is the best yet. Thick and rich with Shea and Cocoa Butter, Aloe, Lavender Essential Oil plus various other oils. This lotion is the only one I've found that lasts without leaving an oily feeling. The scent is clean, pure and relaxing. I would highly recommend any product from Hummingbird Farms. You won't find anything better! "
" Iv tried many many lotions to try and combat my dry skin. Most of the products I found contained too much water and would leave me feeling like I needed to constantly re apply, but the Heavy Cream from Hummingbird Farms gave my parched dry skin the quinching I have longed for. My skin felt smooth and it continued to give me the moisture I needed in one application. The scent of Lavender has always appealed to me so when I first became aware of Hummimgbird Farms, I was thrilled to find such wonderful products all containing the lovely Lavender I so loved. Thank you for plumping my dry skin and giving me the soft smoothness I have been looking for in a body cream . "
