She will still maintain her retail shop on line and all of their products can be purchased and shipped to you through her website: www.spirit2soleconnection.com Jeannie, a Reflexology therapist, Reiki Master, Master Herbalist and Master Gardener, opened this center for healing therapy, enlightenment and fun in March 2015. When this virus clears, she plans to offer services from my home, or will come to your home. The shop closing will happen in October and she will let everyone know the details as they are made. Next month, stop in to pick up a bag of your favorite, organically grown, herbal tea and thank Jeannie for her contribution to our business community!

When our grandmothers needed to attend to the bumps, bruises, fevers and other illnesses their family suffered, they didn't have a corner drugstore. Instead these good women relied on simple wisdom, common sense, and pantries well stocked with herbal remedies. With few exceptions, these herbal remedies were made from plants and herbs that grew in the kitchen garden or were gathered in the fields and woods surrounding their homes. There is a growing awareness of the importance of returning to the use of whole foods and healthy herbs into our modern lives. Merchantville's own Spirit to Sole Connection has many of your herbal needs. Stop by, browse around and chat with owner, Jeannie Muetz Francis. Her home herbal remedy collection is her small way of working to preserve the knowledge of my grandmother and yours for future generations. It is grounded in my desire to explore the natural world of plants and live a simpler and healthier life.
