I don't remember exactly how I got to know of this seller of organic products. I remember looking for a mild ointment to treat mosquito bite when my second son was born but how I was led to the Ilog Maria website, nakalimutan ko na.
I was particularly intrigued by their Propolis products. According to wikipedia, Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Propolis is marketed by health food stores as a traditional medicine, and for its claimed beneficial effect on human health. It has powerful local antibiotic and antifungal properties .
I would order from their website (because they don't have stores or dealerships), get an email for payment instructions from a Joel Magsaysay and my order would arrive two days after payment. I swear, the Propolis ointment is so effective on bites ... nawawala agad ang kati at pamumula. I used it even when my second born was a little baby. I have tried various other ointments on my firstborn but talbog silang lahat sa Ilog Maria product na ito.
Yesterday, I was at NCCC Mall (this is really becoming a favorite place because of their purchasers are kinda good and they are first to bring to Davao City some of the more popular brands) and I dropped by HB1 to get some hand sanitizer and I found some Ilog Maria products on their shelves. How nice is that !!

|Honey Cider Vinegar ... Interesting!|
|Lotions and Massage Oils|
I was not able to properly inspect their line of Ilog Maria products as I was in bit of a rush. They don't have the propolis ointment yet, but I intend to write them a letter to ask them to include that in their next order. I can wait. I still have two jars at home. Yey !!!
