This is my favorite shop in the San Diego community of Little Italy. Regina DiSilvestro is a chemist and herbalist and has created a line of skin and hair care products.
Everything is made and packaged right there in the back of the shop. They also carry handcrafted jewelry and a selection of bulk herbs.
There's a little sink so you can try out the various products. You can check out their class schedule before you get in town as she holds lotion-making, lip-balm-making and herbal certification classes right there in the shop.
