Our Topicals are made exclusively by apothecary, Donna Flores . She has been with Minerva for 4 years, serving patients with arthritis, stress fractures, melanomas, and more through use of her medicated salves, oils, balms, and sprays. Donna believes in the Whole Plant approach to all botanicals. She is a naturalist, and prides herself on her recipes being preservative and chemical free. Donna infuses her own essential oils and uses most every product she makes- and if she doesn’t, she shares it with someone close to her heart as she knows they will never be disappointed.
