Gardeners Hand Cream
Our Gardeners Hand Cream is a blend of patchouli and rosemary pure essential oils combined with a herbal base cream that includes Aloe, Borage, Chamomile, Lavender, Ginseng and Comfrey extracts to help maintain healthy skin.
100% essential oils – freshly made – free from parabens and sulphates, in a 100ml pot.
What can be better than that? Angela, a lovely lady from the Cambridgeshire countryside, makes these for us. We met her last year and knew straight away these were the hand creams we needed to use when we came in from the garden – natural, wonderfully fragrant, great quality and most importantly – they work!
Angela sets the highest standards for her work and is passionate about the therapeutic benefits of herbs and flowers. As we got to know her in the last year, we began to understand this passion manifested itself in her having a first aid kit of lavender, tea tree and a herb filled garden to pick from. She knows her herbs, as she ran a herb business in the past.
There are time when you just can’t wear gloves in the garden, or you forget to replace the ones with holes in and you really do have to clear the nettles… so you get on and work anyway with your bare hands. That isn’t going to help keep your hands in good shape (definitely not with the nettles!) so this hand cream will soothe any cracked, sore, dry or stinging skin. It is deeply moisturising and smells divine.
But what amazes us the most about it? If you apply it to your hands before you work outside, it will work as a great anti-fungal agent.
What a fantastic hand cream – do try it and see the difference.
