A combination of aromatherapy and healing properties make these items a good deal.

  • Calendula Hand Balm - calendula, olive oil, bees wax, lavender essential oil, vitamin E

I started making the Calendula Hand Balm for myself to sooth my nursing/gardening hands. When friends tried it they wanted some for themselves and eventually we started making it to sell.

Calendula has excellent healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Beeswax is wonderful for protecting, soothing and softening the skin. The natural fragrance comes from both the beeswax and the lavender essential oil, which also has an antiseptic value. Vitamin E is used as a natural preservative, as well as it's healing effect on the skin. Olive oil is easily absorbed into the skin, also is a good moisturizer and healer. Together, in specific proportions, they make the most wonderfully soothing, healing hand balm.
