Directions for use: Gilly's Skin Balm is a thick hydrating balm so a little goes a long way. Take a small amount and rub it gently in to the skin working it deeply in to the skin. Use this by itself rather than mixing it with other moisturisers to maximise its effectiveness. Apply regularly throughout the day to ensure the skin is kept hydrated. The balm can safely be used around the eyes as it is a thick balm (although always patch test first)
Storage: Keep refrigerated in temperatures over 20 degrees. To prolong the natural shelf life you can keep the balm refrigerated at all times.

What is Eczema? - By Gilly Godward
On a very basic level the cause of allergies like Eczema is an overreaction from your body to an external allergen which then produces a histamine response…which in the case of Eczema…makes you really really itchy!
For example if you are like me and highly allergic to cats (even though I have 2) the animal dander enters in to the eyes, nose or lungs and for some unknown reason causes the immune system to overreact.
This causes a release of HISTAMINE which causes the swelling and itching. Eczema really is the itch that scratching never relieves
WHAT ARE YOU ALLERGIC TO?
Gaining information about your Eczema is really important. The first question I often ask people is “Do you know what you are allergic to”.
The highest allergy foods seem to be Dairy, Gluten, Eggs, Nuts, Soya, Nightshade vegetables….oh and sugar ( I know right…all the fun stuff!). Plus a whole myriad of external allergens.
The Key thing with Eczema is that every single person is different. What works for one may not work for another.
What you put on your Skin is important!
Going natural with the skin is really important for your overall health.
Gilly’s Skin Balm is a 100% natural and ‘’almost edible’’ balm. It is literally ‘’skin food’’. The reason that I wanted it to be 100% natural was because of the huge link with personal products and health concerns. It just makes sense to go natural.
Some moisturisers are filled with nasties. Chances are Aqua (water) will be fairly high up on the list as well as other things like • cetostearyl alcohol • light liquid paraffin • white soft paraffin • sodium citrate (anhydrous) • methyl 4-hydroxybenzoate.
In Gilly’s Skin Balm I have included a number of ingredients that help to hydrate the skin, heal the skin and moisturise deeply, as well as to help calm any secondary infection that is causing the itch-scratch response.
The Link with Eczema and the Gut
For some people who suffer from leaky gut syndrome there is a huge link with gut health and with allergies.
Probiotic Multi 9
It is a definitely recommended to take a good quality probiotic like our Probiotic Multi-9 which has the correct strain of bacteria ‘Rhamnosus’ that has been researched for helping with allergies and Eczema.
If you have been on antibiotics it is crucial to take a course of probiotics to help to repopulate your gut.
Your gut really is the garden of your health.
A good quality Multi Vitamin and Mineral is also very important. NZ is very deficient in Selenium, Boron and Zinc in our soils and these are all really important for skin health as well as for many other crucial functions in the body. Our CAA Multi is a great quality naturally sourced form of all necessary vitamins and minerals.
It is also really important to make sure you take a good quality source of Omegas to help to relieve inflammation. Our Evening Primrose Oil & Flaxseed Oil is a great source of Omega 3,6,9 as well as essential fatty acids which are crucial for healthy skin, hair and nails, as well as for overall mood and hormonal health.
