This soft balm is a hand, nail, and 'anything that's dry' cream. It’s the hard-working saviour you’ve been looking for all these years…helping to return your hands to their former fame. This is not your standard tough and waxy balm, it’s more like a rich crème with the texture of icing.

It doesn’t simply coat the skin - the active botanical emollients actively soften and heal. Expect hands to feel freshly conditioned for hours, but not sticky or waxy, and with no oily shine like other balms.

The ingredients in this product make it helpful not only for binding moisture to dry skin, but for use on sunburn, cold sores, nappy rash, and tattoos. Those with eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis have also found some sweet relief from this balm.

Fragrance profile

Softly nostalgic and distinct. Like catching a whiff of your mum’s bohemian perfume in mossy oak woods.

With only 1.5% essential oil content, and zero artificial fragrance or perfume, the scent is soft and un-obnoxious.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Massage a pea sized amount into hardworking hands - or any part of the body that’s going through a rough patch.

Note: Depending on the temperature when the balms are poured and set, they can develop a white haze or slight crystals on the top. This is superficial and a part of natural balm setting that disappears with use.
