When Nathalie Balmond's one year old daughter, Lula, developed chronic eczema, she struggled to control her raging flare-ups with a variety of tactics. Nevertheless by the time she was 18 months she had to be wrapped from head to foot in bandages every night to protect her sore and bleeding skin. Although steroids improved the skins condition, she knew that their long term use could lead to thinning of the skin and other side effects. Finally she did some research and experimented in her own kitchen. She formulated a rich beeswax based salve using nourishing oils and traditional herbs and in a very short space of time Lula's skin improved dramatically. From her kitchen she made one or two pots a week for Lula and close friends. As interest grew so did demand, now Pure Potions is used by thousands of eczema sufferers in the UK.
