When I first saw Pili, I thought there’s two kinds of Pili in Filipino language, one was Pili as choose and the other was Pili the delicious kind of nut endemic to Bicol. Upon reading the packaging, I learned that it is the nut from Bicol. They use the Pili oil for making the ingredients for the products they sell. What I love about the products is that it’s purely organic plus the fact that it helps the Bicol Region more income stream from their most popular product . Just recently they sent out the products they sell and I was excited to try themRead More →
