I’m Jennifer. My friends call me the social planner. I’m very eco minded and I’m usually an optimist. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to dance and I adore the sun and being near water (so obviously a pisces).
I am also a mompreneur and founder of The Eczema Company – your online store for natural eczema treatments like scratch protective clothing and natural, non-toxic skincare. I also have launched my own skincare brand, YoRo Naturals which features clean, pure ingredients.
I have two wonderful children. My daughter is as healthy as can be, despite the minor eczema patches that tend to flare during the warm, summer months. My son, Tristan, on the other hand, has, allergies and asthma. Managing Tristan’s health and helping him thrive is what has made me an everyday expert. His eczema was severe up three years of age when, at its worst, his poor body was 90% covered in what looked like burn wounds. The itching was intense and kept the whole family awake at night.
I’m beyond thrilled that Tristan’s body has made such a recovery. Don’t get me wrong, he still has eczema, but it’s a fraction of what it once was. The allergies are under control, but the asthma still likes to rear its ugly head now and then. We tried every possible treatment from doctor’s prescriptions to homeopathy to acupuncture and lots of natural supplements and allergy testing. What finally ended up working? Well, it’s not really one thing, but a combination of a few things that brought us to where we are today, sleeping well and very happy.
