My name .. .is Jane. And, I am the salve and lip balm concoctor at Mountain Pure, LLC. This is my first attempt at writing a blog, but Heather keeps “suggesting” that I write one so here goes!
Growing up my Mom always made homemade bread, muffins, granola, etc, we had a garden that we all worked together to grow and harvest, we used herbs and natural remedies, and all that jazz. I grew up knowing that the earth provided, but I didn’t realize how powerful that information would be until I was much older.
Fast forward to 2013, my youngest was 8-10 months old, and she started having dry, itchy patches of skin on her legs and feet. Well, at this point in my life, the first thing I did was try baby lotion, which probably made it worse, then we headed off to the pediatrician when that didn’t give the results I wanted. The doctor gave us a prescription for some eczema cream. Yay, now we can get some relief!! Or so that’s what I thought. So, that night after her bath I rubbed her down with what was meant to help her, and can I tell you that baby screamed and cried and her skin turned red and irritated. I couldn’t wash it off because her skin was so sensitive at this point she screamed when I touched her legs. Ya’ll!!! That was the MOST awful feeling putting something on your child that you anticipated would help her, and her being in agonizing pain!
