A Family Tradition Of Healing

Harvesting wild elderberry and making all-natural healing salves has been a part of Suzi's family heritage since 1865. The elderberry plant and other wild harvested ingredients were used in the family "cure-all salve," going back several generations.

Like her Great Grandfather before her, Suzi's mother Joanne showed her how to harvest and process plants. Other ingredients were added to complete the formula. The salve was used to heal everything—cuts, wounds, burns & infections. This includes a life threatening infection that Suzi's Great Great Grandfather had when he was a young boy.

Suzi began making the family salve in the dry, cold winters of Nebraska to soothe her own cracked fingertips. Now, we share this family knowledge with everyone through our skincare products.

Suzi's Today

Suzi's has grown to include three distinct families of products with new and exciting products due out in the Spring of 2022! The formulas provide natural support for all skin types and skin conditions. We have learned so much about the application of plant extracts and oils over the years and are thankful to continue the family tradition of natural healing with for example, the use of elderberry extract (a part of the original salve recipe) even today.
