This is the 1999  Guestbook copied from the internet archives.  20 years ago, Guestbooks were a big deal.....  :)  I have tidied it up a little but otherwise it is entirely original.  If you want to check out the original, it is here https://web.archive.org/web/19990219192252/http://www.essential-nz.com/Guestbook/guestbook.html

I am editing this page in April 2017 and I still remember some of these customers!  Note the emails on display? 20 years ago, the internet was a lot more trusting, and even intimate in some ways.  My first year in business, which was actually at the end of 1996 I received cards, and christmas gifts from happy customers.  Amazing.  The world seemed bigger then I think.

Lynda!! I have to tell you that skin fix is the most remarkable product I have ever come across! The beginning of this year my condominium got flooded out here in California and I broke out with a terrible skin rash that turned out to be fungal related due to the flood mold, mildew etc.. Anyway, I did not know what was wrong so I went to the Dermatologist whom I thought naturally would be the skin specialist and know what to do! So... I was diagnosed with "adult acne" and for 9 months put on Acutane, tetrocyline, ethromycin and more strong acne medications, plus steroids (both cream and oral!) My rash got worse and worse progressively by the day. Finally, I had it so I decided to see a Holistic doctor who immediately informed me that what I had was not acne related at all, but fungal and that everything the dermatologist was telling me to do.. was wrong!!!! As everyone knows, antibiotics promote the growth of yeast and thus.. fungal infection! Anyway, after that I started on the skin fix and immediately my entire face cleared up (like within 2 days) It was a miracle!!! And after I had suffered needlessly for over 9 months!!! Skin Fix ended much misery for me and I cannot thank you enough!!! I am getting all my friends and family on this and passing the word!! Again, .. Thank You Thank You Thank You! ;-)

Hi Lynda, Just writing to tell you I have used your Simply Essential on my Cold Sore, and wow, it does kill the little blighters. I put some on yesterday when I felt the tingling and it has arrested the progress of the blister. I think by tomorrow all signs will have disappeared. Great stuff, I would never go back to any pharmaceutical type of cream. Keep up the good work, you are doing a fantastic job with a fantastic product.

I have had bad acne for quite some time now. I always have break-outs on my face. My cousin, Carrol suggested that I try Simply Essential's SkinFix. Within 3 days, my skin really cleared up and looked and felt great. This product is affordable and really lasts a long time. I love the product and would recomment it to anyone with problem skin. It's great!! If you were here lynda, I'd give you a big hug!

About the Simply Essential. I don't often suffer from cold sores, however, when I do they take forever to clear up. Twice I have felt a tingling in my lower lip and a little bit of a bump (the under the skin >swelling was slightly evident) below the surface. I immediately treated it for only one day with the Simply Essential and never had an eruption >at all. I'm thrilled. I gave the smaller container to a friend of mine who gets cold sores quite frequently and she had a full-blown cold sore erupt and I reminded her that the had the Simply Essential. Well, after using it for just one day very consistently throughout the day, it >started to heal and by day two it was nothing more than a visible bump. >She also is very impressed to say the least. I also have a five year >old who developed her first cold sore about 2 years ago. She has had >one since and there was absolutely nothing I could do for her -- now, at >least I am aware that I can help her if it happens again. > >Thanks for THAT wonderful product. I look forward to trying the others.

I developed a fever blister under my nose 2 days ago. I immediately applied Simply Essential, and within 3 hours it was gone! I have had cold sores off and on my whole life, and I can't thank you enough for saving me ten days of embarassment. Thank you!!

Your product seems as though "Simply Essential" would be good externally. But what about internal protection? I just found a product that seems to work by helping the body create alpha interferon and so far has prevented any new outbreaks for me! However, I'll be sure to try "Simply Essential" if it ever happens again!

Comments: I sincerely hope your product works. However I am concerned that if it does in fact prevent visible outbreaks, that people who have been diagnosed will be at risk of over-confidence, thus passing the virus to others.

Recently, I said to myself: "I'm going to develop a product that will finally heal cold sores." Well, it looks like you beat me to it! I'm a 4th year university student and have been afflicted with cold sores my entire life. Anyone who has ever had one before understands the frustration, pain and embarrassement. At last, something on the market that, so far, seems to be getting a great deal of positive feedback. I will be sure to purchase your product before my next outbreak. Now, if this stuff can work on me,it has to be some kind of miracle.

Your product is fantastic. It works like a charm. I contracted herpes simplex off my then-partner, and after two applications all the signs went away. That was last year. I haven't felt a thing since then, and cannot speak highly enough of your product.

Just wanted to give you an update on how much I LOVE your product. I purchased Simply Essential about three months ago and had two outbreaks of cold sores since then. Both times that I used your product they disappeared within an hour. And guess what? I haven't had an outbreak since. What a miracle!!! Also, I have let friends and relatives use it and they love it too!! I also use it for bug bites and just dry lips. It is so soothing. This little pot will last me forever because I have a feeling that I'll never get a cold sore again!! Bless you and your wonderful product!!!

I have suffered from cold sores for about 8 years. I get them under and in my nose. It is awful, and makes me depressed and so uncomfortable with myself. I have no idea why I started getting them, except the first one came along with a really bad cold/flu. I feel so disgusting when I get them, and menstruation seems to bring them on. I have tried Echinecea, and L-lysine, along with campho- phonique, but nothing heals them quick enough or makes them stop reoccurring. I hope that this stuff really works, and I can quit worrying about the next outbreak. I'll let you know what my results are, but I hope I never have to get one again!

I am almost 16 years old and I have been getting cold sores since I was about 4 years old. I have tried everything and nothing ever takes them away. Some things help relieve pain and others dry them out, but it is still a hassle. I am going to to try this product and hopefully it will work on me. At the moment, I ahve 2 cold sores. One on my chin and one on my lip. I can barely talk because my lip is so swollen. I am desperate!

I have just started using this product and until about 2 weeks ago, I'd never had a cold sore. I love the feel of it though. It really relieves this darned itchiness.

I am only 15 I get cold sores by the dozens every year. In fact I am just getting over one now. I am going to check this stuff out I recomend any sufferers they do the same. If you can't afford the product my grandfather gave me a great solution. Get a rag, boil a pot of water. Dip the rag in water and apply to your mouth. Make sure you don't burn yourself but it really helps. Also every hour apply Ambesol (Maximum strength)to the area. Try it it works and buy this stuff !~!
