How did Five Elements Get Started?
I taught Biology and Maths for thirty years before deciding that the admin associated with the profession was eating away far too much of my time (so, I am no ‘spring chicken’, thankfully)!
A few years before resigning from teaching, I had a student who was in a bad way with eczema; whenever I looked at this poor kid, she was scratching herself mercilessly, ending up with a raw, inflamed mess.
After many months of watching her discomfort, I took it upon myself to research which plants that I had access to, contained ingredients that would alleviate eczema.
To cut to the chase, I decided on five plant extracts and made up a tub, of what we have called ‘Skin Tonic’. Within one week of application, the student’s skin condition cleared up completely…..and this is how Five Elements was born!
