Sharing the Power of Melaleuca Renew

power-of-renewHow a chance encounter equaled big relief for the Robinson family

Nicole lay in bed listening to the sounds of her son tossing and turning in the other room. She heard him scratching, scratching—always scratching. In the morning he would wake cranky and exhausted with several new scabs as evidence of his nails worrying away at his dry, irritated skin through the night.

Despite going to every specialist she could find, Nicole was still lying there in the middle of the night listening to her 3-year-old suffer with severely dry skin. What started off as dry patches behind her baby’s knees and arms, had steadily progressed until it covered her toddler’s entire body and made it impossible for him to ever feel comfortable— even at night.

“We tried all the different creams,” Nicole says. “They would clear it up for a little bit, but it would always return.” Then one day Nicole took her son to an indoor playground, and the woman sitting next to her noticed her son’s skin problems.

“She asked me what I was using on him, and I said, ‘Everything! I’ve tried everything, and I don’t know what to do anymore,” Nicole recalls.

What Nicole didn’t know was that the woman sitting next to her, Senior Director Danie Branch, knew all about the troubles of severely dry skin. Danie’s husband had once suffered from terribly dry skin and it was a chance encounter just like this that led Danie to discover the lasting relief of Renew Intensive Skin Therapy. So when Danie pulled a travel-size bottle of Renew out of her pocket and handed it to Nicole with her business card, it was really her way of paying it forward.

“She told me to take the lotion and try it for a few days,” Nicole recalls. “If I liked it, then I could give her a call.”

Impressed by Danie’s kindness, Nicole ended up watching a Delivering Wellness presentation that day. The natural ingredients and quality products sold themselves, and Nicole enrolled and ordered a large bottle of Renew.

The results were astounding.

After three years of trying everything and anything she could, all with little success, Nicole’s son now had clear skin after just four days.*

“Honestly, starting Renew really saved my life,” Nicole says. “My son wasn’t sleeping; he was up all night. Now he sleeps; he doesn’t dig himself raw anymore. There’s a big difference in my house.”

Nicole had been taking photos to document for her dermatologist just how bad her son’s skin had become. Less than a week after starting Renew, Nicole got to take one of the happiest pictures of her young sons’ life: him with clear, healthy skin.

And Nicole isn’t the only one who’s grateful. Her son is also a big fan of Renew.

“He’s always like, ‘Mommy, I just want my Melaleuca cream,’” Nicole says. “We tried other creams, but they would burn his skin. Renew doesn’t, and it really works for him.”

The Robinson house is a happier place these days, all thanks to a stranger who paid it forward and shared the power of Renew.

    I have been using Renew Lotion on all my mules tails. They have been lying down and rolling in cockleburs and just from the lack of being combed out all winter their tails are a mess. I thought moisturizing would work and I didn’t want to attract dirt. Renew worked fabulously and their tails feel great.

    I have also been using Tough and Tender to clean my leather goods, and the Renew Lotion as a conditioner. I can’t believe how great my boots, bridles, chinks and saddles are turning out. Best leather conditioner I’ve ever used.

    Renew is absolutely the best product on the market for eczema – nothing compares and nothing even comes close – if you suffer then give Renew a try – you won’t be disappointed!

    My family absolutely LOVES Renew lotion. My mom actually introduced it to me several years ago; she found it after they could not find a lotion to help my Father’s foot issue (he is a diabetic) and tried every lotion, including prescription-based, and received no relief. Thank you for making Renew!

    I’ve been using Renew for five years and no longer have any symptoms of eczema whatsoever. It is by far the most cost effective lotion I’ve ever purchased and it doesn’t sting when I use it. I even use it as a diaper rash cream and my child doesn’t cry.
