On two Fridays, December 13 and 20, 11:00am-2:00pm, a Dr. Hauschka representative will be at Village Green to answer all of your skin care questions and provide 20-minute individual face care and cosmetic consultations. Space is limited for the consultations, so please call Jeff at 301-530-0800 x1021 to reserve your place.
Dr. Hauschka is one of Village Green’s premium skin care product lines. Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products are based on a “holistic” philosophy – an understanding of the way skin works and its relationship with overall health, the goal being skin that is balanced and able to perform its natural functions without dependence upon a slew of products. All Dr. Hauschka products are 100% natural and contain the highest quality plant and mineral ingredients. You will never find parabens, phthalates, petroleum-derived synthetics, propylene glycol, silicones, synthetic colors or synthetic fragrances in any of their products.
Stop by during the demonstration times, and receive a free gift with your $25 Dr. Hauschka product purchase.

We are so appreciative of all of our customers, from those who have been with us since the beginning (over 45 years), to those who have just discovered us through our blog or our website, or from a friend. Times have changed since The Apothecary opened its doors, but one thing has remained constant… wonderful customers.
Personally, I am grateful for all the wonderful people who have worked at Village Green Apothecary. Caring, thoughtful people who strive to deliver quality service to everyone who walks in the door, calls on the phone or visits our website. I am thankful to work with such a great bunch.
I came across this blog from last year about gratitude. It is a great reminder that small gestures can make a big difference!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

The fourth annual Small Business Saturday is on November 30. It is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country.
Here are some stats about small businesses:
Did you know that for every $100 spent in a local business, 68% of that stays in the community? How about, small businesses employ half of all private sector employees, or that for every year over the last decade, 60% to 80% of new jobs were generated by small businesses?
Make the most of this Small Business Saturday – a day to come together in support of small businesses like Village Green Apothecary. Small businesses are the heartbeat of our communities and local economies.

Innate Response Formulas isn’t your everyday vitamin company. They have been in business for over 40 years, long before “whole foods” was a buzz phrase. Innate provides whole food nutrition, with the understanding that optimal health starts from the ground up – and thus, personal and environmental health are one and the same. Protecting health and environment means continuously striving for sustainable manufacturing and business practices.
On Monday, a representative from Innate will be at Village Green to tell you how you can protect yourself and your family from the flu virus by providing a safe, natural approach to strengthening your immune system.
Innate Immune Response is a supplement that does just that. This formula has been designed specifically to take advantage of the immune-supportive properties of some of the world’s most powerful botanicals and nutrients like beta glucans, astragalus, and mushrooms.
The product demonstration will run from 11:30 am until 2:00 pm. For more information, please call Village Green at 800-869-9159.
Please Note: Innate Response prohibits discounts of their products online. You can take advantage of our 25% off discount on these products during our current sale (through December 31) by shopping at our store in Bethesda, MD or by calling in your order. Phone: 800-869-9159.
