One of the things that makes Perelandra so special is our wonderful staff! We are truly fortunate to have employees are from all over the world with very diverse skill sets and backgrounds, and they are instrumental in creating the "great energy" that our store is famous for. Our customers rely on our staff to answer their questions, help them find what they're looking for, suggest products and to be a friendly face in this big city.

Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gelly: "I use it at night instead of a moisturizer, it's really good for the skin".
What is your favorite thing about working at Perelandra?"I love organic foods and am very health oriented, so I love being surrounded by them. I also really like talking to people, and I get to do it all day here. It's weird because I am a shy person, but I really enjoy talking to people here."
What's the most important thing you've learned since you started working here?"That you can be on a budget and still afford healthy food. Also, a co-worker taught me about being vegan and the Elimination Diet, and it really affects the way you feel. My skin cleared up and I feel better. It's not all hype!"
