Gloria Simeon: owner of Yup’ik Way

Yup’ik Way of Bethel donated both of this afternoon’s “Hot” prizes.

The first is a jar of ‘Caiggluk Minguk'; used to soothe and treat dry or irritated skin, cuts, scratches, eczema, and many elders have reported that it helps with arthritis and other aches and pains.

The second prize is a jar of ‘Ikiituq Minguk'; used to relieve the pain and swelling associated with joint sprains & twists, and ikiitug also relieves lower-back and other deep muscle aches. This balm also works great for healing bruises and burns.
