Verdant Pleasures

Denese Washam created Verdant Pleasures using her culinary and nutrition background. Denese has a solid grasp on the impact of natural nutrition in what people consume as well as what they put on their bodies.  January 15 Verdant Pleasures 2

She created this wonderful product line out of necessity as her favorite  product was discontinued and many attempts using store brand substitute products failed to work on her delicate skin.

She has perfected her products and over the past several years and as she has shared them with others, her blends have been compared very favorably with cremes that cost many times the amount.
