Our Story

Uhuru means “Freedom” in the Kenyan dialect of Swahili.

My children’s ECZEMA drove me to find my passion and now I am living my purpose. 

My two eldest children suffered from a dry skin condition, called ECZEMA from birth.  They had patches of dry, itchy skin all over their body, but the dry skin was more visible on their beautiful chubby cheeks. I was prescribed medicated creams and when the dry skin became worse, the GP prescribed steroid creams. He would then say “do not use it for too long because it thins the skin”🤷🏿‍♀️. I felt so helpless watching the skin on their cheeks crack and bleed during winter because it was dry, itchy and thin. 

I became tired of using medicated creams which were just not working and were only making their skin look thinner and unhealthy. I decided to make a natural body balm for their skin, which worked perfectly!!

I have not had to visit their GP for another eczema cream since I took matters in my own hands. When my third child came along, I did not have to worry about his skin. No more red, patchy, itchy skin for my babies🤗

From this experience, UHURU BOTANICALS was born.
