Gotu Kola is a beautiful heart-shaped herb that has pride of place in Nanna’s garden and is at the heart of one of our favourite salves, ourGotu Kola & Calendula Rich Cream Salve. During winter, it’s one of our best-sellers for keeping dry and sensitive skin luxuriously nourished and protected.
Winter’s suddenly arrived and made its presence felt! There’s a chill in the air and this change in weather can have a big impact on your skin. Colder air along with the wind and lower humidity levels can carry away precious moisture just when your skin needs it most.
It's well known that atopic eczema is often triggered by allergens in the environment (dust mites, certain fibres, pollen, mold) and in the diet (dairy, shellfish, eggs, nuts). But if you have atopic eczema or know someone who does, you might have noticed that there are other strange triggers of the itch-scratch cycle.
