"As a long time sufferer of psoriasis, particularly round the hairline over winter, I have tried all sorts of products over the years. I called in to the Otane Cafe and purchased your cream. What a joy! It has made such a difference to my skin and is actually a really lovely moisturiser as well :) Thank You for making such a great product. Off to purchase another jar :) " Helen Waddington
"I have found this particular cream to be incredibly effective for my eczema which I have had since a child. I have been using it for approximately 3 weeks and can't believe the difference in my skin condition - thank you so much!!!" - K.H.
"Absolutely beautiful products and will definitely buy again. I noticed even within 24 hrs the "X-zit" cream has improved my skin - I cant believe it." - S.R.
"I wanted to give you feedback on your rosemary rub. I had Carpel Tunnel with lumps all in my wrist that was so sore to touch or even rub cream into it at first, and after using it only for 2months, the lumps are nearly gone, and I have no pain." - L.B.
"Used the Elderflower Ointment on an odd dry discoloured patch of skin. It developed with sun-damage over years, I suspect. The area softened and the darkness has faded with the use of the ointment, I wasn't expecting the result, because it was so gentle, I didn't notice it 'working'. I am very pleased with it, though it has not completely gone, the mark isn't very noticeable and I don't worry about its appearance. More importantly the area is smooth now. Thank you, your products are very valuable in our household, and gentle too." - V.M.
"Love this!!! Was a gift for a friend and have to buy a new one as I have now used some of the plantain & chickweed ointment for myself. Best bee-sting cure EVER!!!" - F.F.
"Just wanted to say THANK YOU so much, we recently bought your baby's bottom cream after our little girl had had a nappy rash for almost a month. We had tried everything and she wasn't even wearing nappies around the home anymore. Within 2 days of using your cream she had completely cleared up and we haven't had any problems since! We are so grateful to you for making such an awesome product. Thanks!!! - J.M&F
"The Psoriasis cream is great, it stops the itch straight away and lasts all day. I have psoriasis on 80% of my body, it's a nasty condition, the doctors told me I just have to put up with it. They gave me steroid cream that worked for a while then my body got used to it. I started doing a lot of research and found out that steroids are nasty. I've gone gluten free, given up alcohol, gone 80% alkaline foods, it's taken four months but it's starting to go away. I'm going to go back to the doctor and show him I have cured a condition that they told me can't be cured. If any of your clients have it tell them to buy a book called "Healing Psoriasis" by John Pagano. I guarantee it will help. Your cream and the book saved my life. Cheers Steve"
I recently had a very bad flare up of eczema on the inside creases of my arms, which has been really rare for me as I’ve grown older. Being such a visible place, I felt quite embarrassed and I wanted to cover it up with long sleeves - anyone with eczema will know that only makes things worse. I tried the remedies I remembered using when I was younger, but none of them seemed to work. The redness, swelling and itch just would not subside. I really didn’t want to turn to a doctor to get prescribed steroid creams or pills, so when a friend told me to research chickweed cream, I stumbled upon Millstream Gardens eczema cream. Within two days, the redness has almost completely disappeared and my skin feels so much more comfortable and soft, it’s incredible! I could barely straighten out my arms before, the skin was that painful, and now it feels back to normal. Such an amazing product! Thank you Jan and Geoff!
I came across your product for Psoriasis cream in common sense organics Wellington. It has really helped to heal my psoriasis which flares up at anytime on my eyebrows and hairline. It has worked wonders - I will be using your cream from now on! I am so happy I have found your product!
My husband and I stopped in to the wee cafe in Otane that stocks your products! What a delight - and I am desperate to get back there to purchase more of your range. I purchased an assortment of skin creams for my niece - and for my daughter I purchased the acne cream - every time she walks past me the delightful smell of it makes me smile! so fabulous to have something so natural on her 11 yr old skin! I absolutely love the work you have done - and I will continue to purchase your products now I am aware of them! Thank you!!! - Kylie
I swear by your eczema cream after having brought it from the Paper Mulberry, but I never had the option to swing pass and purchase more. I had no idea you had an online store, so thank you!

Mysister gave me a tin of Bugger Off when she returned to Oz after a holiday in NZ. My wife and I live in northern NSW, it's warm and humid here with lots of bightey critters, especially mosquitos and ticks. Your product is wonderful; it repels insects, reduces pain and itch and smells loverlyl. I can't wait to try some more of your products. Well done!

I am absolutely thrilled with the use of your products, kawakawa cream in particular, have been taking it as a gift for friends and family with a great success! Thanks you very much. You are also two amazing people, working from the heart. Great! D.C.
I have been buying your guys products for a few years now, and "Love the stuff!!!" i dont know its just so earthy, and holistic and made with LOVE!..really cant explain. i so love the "baby bottom cream! it doesnt go on any babies in our family, it goes on my face!. Yep thats right my baby face. Your new website looks Fantastic! lots of lovely colour. SO thankyou Millstream for keeping me looking YOUNG!!!.. cheers Sue Dyer
I have used a few of your products now, & all I can say is, I will be back for more!
I just LOVE the rose soap & shampoo bar, not only does it make me feel clean, healthy & happy (roses being uplifting etc) but it also helps with cleaning the shower etc, due to less soapy bubbles, means less soap scum! Plus I like the fact that the natural ingredients aren't harming the environment when washed down the plughole.
The nits lotion is also fabulous. One of my little ones is always picking them up at school, so i go through treatments all the time. This one was nice to use, lovely on her hair & didn't sting her scalp when applied to the bits she had scratched & broken the skin. It also made it easier to get the nit comb through her hair, always a struggle!
The creme perfumes have got to be my face! The rose petal creme is true to its name, smelling like walking through a full-blooming rose garden :-)
I found it is also great rubbing a little through my hair after the shampoo bar & rose vinegar rinse. I started using it as a hair styling product instead of mousse etc & it makes my hair smell even better! I have long curly hair, which is prone to frizz, & the creme perfumes really help :-)
So thanks again guys, for all of your wonderful products & great, friendly service :-) Keep up the good work.
Kia Ora... I'm a local resident in Hastings and go out to CHB often and pass your little sign. Why I have never stopped I don't know and I wish I had. We came back from a family holiday in New Plymouth where we housesat for friends. They have cats and my son has eczema but he has never reacted to cats before. Im thinking maybe because we have little contacts with them. Anyway we had two cats to look after in this week and from the first night my 11yr old son started scratching. His skin was slightly irritated before we got to the house but after that first night he went downhill. He was scratching and crying and I've never ever seen his skin look so sore and broken and flared! I almost cried. A few months ago we took him off the emulsifying from doctors etc and he had solely been using virgin coconut oil which has been an amazing product to use as a moisturiser. But I now realised this wasn't helping at all with the scratching and the skin and its was the scratching that was making things worse. I popped into Cornucopia hoping to find a miracle cure but feeling rather like we won't. I didn't speak to anyone mainly because its been a battle for my sons skin and it's ongoing and I've tried lots of things over the years. I had heard on a facebook forum that your crocodile cream was amazing but then I saw the small jar of Eczema cream next to it and thought this might be more helpful. My son has kapahaka tonight and I know he was feeling unsettled about performing because his skin was so bad (no shirt for the performance). We bought the oil on Saturday and trialed a small patch first to make sure he wouldn't react to it. Overnight it seemed to improve (well my husband thought I was seeing things) so we went for it and applied it all over his body and by the next day I almost cried and couldn't believe my eyes. Not only had it worked but worked so fast!!! We bought the smallest jar (finances) and its worked brilliantly and we just ran out this morning and he performs tonight! His skin is about 80% better and he is totally fine with that!!! He's performing and I'm on your website now looking to buy more. I can go to Cornucopia and I love supporting local business especially ones like that....but we are on one income so I'll be honest - we have to head out to Waipawa on Saturday so if its cheaper online I will buy direct from you!!!! Thank you so much! I will be checking for other products to add to our 'haurora' cupboard! Blessings, Marie xx
Love your products and your philosophy! Just a quick note to say how amazing I have found your Plaintain & Chickeed ointment in particular - as a long time sufferer of allergies and excema who has tried almost everything there is out there I honestly find this to be the quickest and most effective itch relief for nasty hives / allergic type rashes that pop up - relief is almost instantaneous and hives will start to go down in minutes, it's seriously amazing! And so nice to use something that is better than steroids - both for skin health long term and for actual efficacy. Can't recommend this enough if you get any type of itchy sensitive skin. Thank you!
Just wanted to let you know that I have used the Eczema cream on my 5 year old boy with HUGE success. Although he only suffers mild eczema, it seems to work almost overnight. Also, last weekend when we were away, he had an outbreak of patches of very sore, itchy and red skin rash/spots over his torso and I didn't have the cream with me. When we got back Monday evening I used it straight away & the following morning - the relief it brought my son was amazing as he had been very distraught. I kept using it morning & evening and by this morning the sore patches have all but disappeared. I would recommend it thoroughly. Thanks
Thank you very much for your prompt delivery of my wonderful shaving soap (my last pot is still going a year on!) and I am looking forward to trying the after shave balm very much. I am sure the shaving soap has effectively stopped any acne and shaving rash I may have had in the past. Money well spent. Thanks again, W.D.
jus letting u know ur stuff arrived safe n sound n is as all ur products are perfect again keep up the good work u guys oh n thanx heaps for my freeby lovin it:)
Would love to say a big thank you for your amazing products. I brought the X-zit cream and used on my daughter her face looks amazing almost all gone in 4 days. The crocodile Cream for me I wish I had got the big one.
Many Thanks :)
Love your photo selection on the web site.
Your products have that special caring feel only Cottage industry can produce in stark contrast to products made mechanically in a big production line.
The sun smiles on Millstream Gardens and your creams and potions reflect this lovingly.
I suffer from dyshidrotic eczema and I have never up until now found anything to cure it. I was given a jar of baby bottom cream but luckily my baby does not have nappy rash so I started using it myself, and what a big difference it has made on my skin. I am so glad I have come across this cream. Thank you so much for inventing it!!!
