Thera Wise – Natural Bio Active Therapeutic Ointments (REVIEW)

I’m happy to have been introduced to Natural Ointments by Thera Wise! Since receiving the Bio Active Skin Healing Ointment and the Bio Active Vaporizing Decongestant Rub we have had a need for both – multiple times in our house!

Most suffers are between 20 and 50 years old, but that span is growing. I’ve had sensitive teeth for the past 10 years or so.
