Hi I’m Marcie, odds are if you’re dealing with support you’re probably talking to me!
I suffered from psoriasis and general skin problems for much of my life since adolescence. Conventional medicine failed me so I began looking into alternative treatments. I tried herbs, mineral extracts, tonics, weird diets, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, magnetic field therapy, oxygen therapy or any other therapy that was a match for the most frustrating disease of them all. Eventually I tried them all again.
In 2007 I discovered the Sausage Tree during a backpacking trip through South Africa. The locals informed me that the fruit of the tree had miraculous curative properties and may be beneficial to my skin. It didn’t seem like I had anything to lose so I gave it a try and applied the fresh fruit guts to my arms.
In a few days I was floored. I couldn’t believe it! My psoriasis had subsided and my skin was starting look supple and fresh again!
I did some research and found that yes indeed lots of skin lotions are made using the Sausage Tree and even found a local producer before I returned to the United States. I stocked up and discussed making bulk orders to save on expenses. Not long after I began supplying sausage tree cream containing the miraculous kigelia extract to my friends and family. That was about 7 years ago now.
KigeliaShop.com is my attempt to bring these wonderful Sausage Tree products to a wider audience. I’m starting with the basic 75ml tube and if things go well and there’s interest I will add more :).
My aim is to spread the word about kigelia extract and to promote natural skin care solutions for problem skin.
