“I like to use skin care products that are made without artificial ingredients. While shopping for some lotion at Down to Earth one day, I was talking with one of the workers there who explained to me that your skin is your largest organ and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it. I had never thought of it that way before! Now, it is more important than ever to me to use skin care products with all natural and organic ingredients!!”
“While swimming recently, a boat crashed into my arm as I tried to swim out of its way, leaving my arm bruised and sore. I went to Down to Earth to see if they had anything to relieve the pain. The wellness person there suggested I try Arnica. She said that Arnica is known to help with bruising and swelling, so I gave it a try. Almost immediately, the swelling and pain subsided. The bruise was gone in just a couple of days. I was glad to have learned of this product. Using it was much better than if I had just waited for my arm to heal on its own.”
For years, I've suffered from intense headaches. When I moved to Hawaii 3 years ago, I went in search of a natural remedy at Down to Earth. They told me to try Curamin. It contains all natural ingredients that work with the body's own response to pain (such as maximizing blood flow, endorphins and helping with inflammation). Surprisingly, it worked! I love sailing and other outdoor sports and the Curamin really helps to keep my headaches at bay.
“Earlier this year, my wife and 7 kids made a re-commitment to eating healthy again. With the help of Down to Earth, we were able to gradually eat more organic & natural foods. Then later, when our whole family decided to go 100% Vegan, shopping at Down To Earth became a daily routine. At the Kapolei store, they know our whole family! The staff makes our experience that much more pleasurable. Great company, great mission!”
“Down to Earth is a great, locally owned store with a high level of integrity and community involvement...helping make Hawaii a better place seems to be part of the business model. I shop at Down To Earth at least once a week and find great bargains with on-sale items, which also encourages me to try new things all the time. In addition, I'm so incredibly impressed with the outreach the store does to help educate the market about health choices and healthy foods.
Being an avid golfer for many years, combined with the effects of aging, all started to take a toll on my joints. I would be fine sitting for a while, but then I found getting up was becoming harder and harder. I used to joke with my kids that ‘I’m fine, it just takes my body a while to get moving again!’ But the joint pain was becoming increasingly debilitating. I don’t like going to doctors unless I absolutely have to, so I went to Down to Earth to see if they could suggest anything for the pain. The woman in the wellness area informed me about MSM.
“I am allergic to eggs. I love how all of the products at Down to Earth do not contain any eggs. It makes it so easy and quick for me to shop there verses other stores because I no longer have to stop and read all of the ingredients on the products that I am purchasing. I have always hated grocery shopping but shopping at Down to Earth, I now love it. Plus knowing that everything that I purchase there will be made out of the healthiest ingredients because they research everything before putting it on their shelves. This also gives me peace of mind.
