My recovery from this devastating illness required slow, gentle steps.
On days when my condition would allow, I sat in the quiet serenity of my garden. I could feel that being sitting still, surrounded by nature, allowed my body to start healing. During this time, I decided to eat organically and stop using products with harmful chemicals. At that time, finding products without these toxic ingredients was a bit of a task. So, in the garden, I imagined how I might make products that were entirely naturally and free from any synthetic chemicals.
A year sooner than my doctor’s expected, I recovered from my illness, and was finally in a position to put into practise what I had imagined. Six months on, I launched the first certified 100% organic skincare company in the UK. I was immensely proud of this achievement, and ESELLE went on to receive multiple awards and high commendations in several books and magazines.
