Success stories :
`Imphepho is a wonderful botanical for raising the ancestors and to rid the place of evil vibrations.'
`I was very impressed with the Imphepho, and I'll be buying some more soon.'
`I have a little thing to share with you about the Imphepho. This was my first time to use it, and I employed it at my Boveda to help me connect with my ancestors. It did help in that regard and opened a channel which has remained strong until this very moment. I use a little bit daily along with candles, water, flowers and incense. When I burn it, my body seems to relax and the mind slows its chatter. Then I can hear the Muertos so much better. Thanks for handling this nice product.'
`All the herbs I purchased were great.
I will be re-ordering them when I'm out.
I'm a big fan of imphepho.'
`My imphepho arrived a couple of days ago.Got here nice and fast.Thank you as always.'
`I've received the Imphepho and I believe that it will do well in the States once it becomes better known.
Only myself and staff have used it so far, but it has not disappointed any of us.
It appears as though the more it's used, the more one becomes sensitive. I've found that it heightens the physical senses as well as the psychic.'
`I was happy with the product, the price and those cool S.African stamps on the package. I had never used Imphepho before and found it nice before bed.
I have a lifetime of insomnia behind me so I'm always looking for help there.
PS : I really like your web site.'
