Nourish dry winter skin with our new Kawakawa Oil

Nourish dry winter skin with our new Kawakawa Oil
Winter can take its toll on our skin and it’s tempting to just pull on our faithful jeans and worry about it in spring. But our skin is our largest and most visible organ, and it deserves some pampering protection during the chilly days of winter!

Natural vapour rub - relief from children's winter colds & congestion

Natural vapour rub - relief from children's winter colds & congestion
We have such fond childhood memories of inhaling the soothing scent of eucalyptus as mum gently smoothed on a chest rub to help us breathe through a winter cold. This winter, we’ll be lovingly applying the all naturalpetrochemical free version for our children, with the Frankie Apothecary chest rub, Breathe Easy.

Eczema: healing from the inside

Eczema: healing from the inside
One of the most common symptoms or issues we see in clients at our BePure clinic in the Hawke’s Bay is eczema. For some it is a mildly annoying patch of dermatitis that hints at other health concerns, while for others it is painful, raw, prone to infection, itchy, a cause of self-consciousness and in extreme cases it can be completely debilitating.

Finding your eczema trigger: Environmental

Finding your eczema trigger: Environmental
Eczema often runs in families – frequently along with asthma and other hyper-reactive illnesses. These ties to family traits identify the genetic link that can play a part in the development of hypersensitive and reactive skin. The role of your environment plays a large part, and can be what sets off a dormant trait.

Finding your eczema trigger: Clothing

Finding your eczema trigger: Clothing
While we worked on helping our children heal from the inside, we did our best to research and find what food, environmental triggers and fabrics to avoid – to reduce those flair ups on the outside.

Finding your eczema trigger: Food

Finding your eczema trigger: Food
The role of food in eczema is a tricky one, but a well-established one, with many people seeing resolution in their eczema woes simply by making dietary adjustments. But how do you know if food is causing a problem for YOU? And how do you figure out WHICH foods are triggering a reaction?

Eczema: Moisturise

Eczema: Moisturise
Finding a moisturiser that did what it claimed proved impossible when my daughter Eva was struggling through extremely dry itchy skin caused by her Eczema.  I tried absolutely every product on the market. All had little or no effect.

Eczema: Stopping the itch

Frankie Apothecary stopping the eczema itch
One of the goals of any eczema sufferer is to relieve and prevent itching. Not only because it is extremely distressing but because scratching the skin can cause the skin to become very inflamed and even infected.
