As a keen gardener, I’ve always got a bar of this on the go.
Packed with oodles of lovely ingredients, it gives hard-working gardening hands the TLC they need. It’s made with a base of olive oil & coconut oil, to give a rich, nourishing lather. We’ve added a herbal infusion of St John’s Wort (used for centuries for it’s natural healing properties) and green clay to gently draw out inground muck & dirt, and Aloe vera , Cornish honey, Cocoa butter & Glycerine for their skin soothing properties. Scented with our own blend of soothing & antiseptic essential oils including Lavender, Tea Tree & Patchouli.
St John’s Wort; Reputed to be anti-inflammatory, and effective on sprains, burns & bruises.
Aloe Vera; Used in the Mediterranean region for thousands of years, we’ve added this for its cooling & soothing properties.
Cocoa butter; A wonderful moisturiser for dry, itchy or chapped skin.
French green clay; We’ve used this because of its gentle nature, high mineral content & absorbent properties, to help draw inground dirt out of the hands.
Glycerine & Honey; both humescants- that is,they help to seal moisture into the skin. Glycerine is a natural product of the soap-making process, & is removed from many commercial soaps; we add even more, as its so good for the skin. Honey has been described as “nature’s first aid kit”; naturally antiseptic & cleansing.
Patchouli, Lavender & Tea tree essential oils; all used for their natural healing, soothing & antiseptic qualities.
