The Legend of the Balsam Rose was written to outline and highlight our belief that we are all connected to each other and to the world around us. We benefit in so many ways when we work together and honor our differences. We value the friends and business partners we have developed in the past few years. We work with a number of different retail establishments in central New York and beyond. We also look to purchase local NY state ingredients for our products as well.
We love to meet people that are interested in helping to improve our personal heath and well being along developing the vitality of local economies!
