Description

A completely fresh, all natural hand cream. Summer hedgerow flowers bring a touch of midsummer to your hands. Formulated to sink in fast Summer Garden Hand Cream provides instant protection while it softens and restores skin.

Flowers gathered from hedgerows in midsummer – elderflower, limeflower, marshmallow and chamomile – are dried and stitched into muslin pockets ready for you infuse.

Chamomile is gentle, calming, soothing and skin healing.

Marshmallow helps moisturise and soften skin as well as helping chapped hands recover.

Limeflower helps fade freckles, improve circulation, soothe skin and smooth out tiny wrinkles; its fragrance is delightfully relaxing.

Elderflower is the essential midsummer scent and a key element in the hedgerow medicine chest since Roman times, reputedly being good against freckles, sunburn and skin infections as well as helping chapped hands and chilblains.

 

These are blended with natural plant seed oils including hempseed which soothes dry and damaged skin, penetrates well and prevents drying while improving skin health and broccoli seed oil a fast-penetrating, quickly absorbed superfood for skin.

Patchouli essential oil adds to the evocative scent, as well as being great for chapped and cracked skin. It’s combined with healing and comforting lavender oil and fresh, sweet and cleansing lemon oil.

You don’t want your hands to give your age away so we’ve included hyaluronic acid to help your hands stay youthful and vitamin E to nourish them. Plus emollient beeswax and walnut butter which is great for protecting and good on sensitive and irritated skin.

How to make

  1. Place the herb pocket in a small pan and add 4 tablespoons (60ml) water. Gently bring to the boil, then turn down to the lowest heat and leave to infuse.
  2. Meanwhile, empty the contents of the large sachet into the top of a double boiler (or bowl over a pan of hot water) and stir until the beeswax heart has melted.

TIP: cut open the top edge of the sachet, then hold it upside-down over the pan and squeeze from base to top to get all the contents out.

  1. When the beeswax heart has melted, gradually add 1 tablespoon (15ml) of the warmed infusion into the oils, whisking constantly. Transfer the top pan (or bowl) to over a bowl of cold water and keep stirring.

TIP: As you stir, keep the whisk touching the bottom of the pan, that way less air will get into your product.

  1. When the consistency starts to change and thicken, add the contents of the small sachet. Stir rapidly until it cools completely.

TIP: Make sure the product is cool before it goes into the jar – if it’s liquid enough to pour in and form a smooth surface, it is too warm, cool it more (stirring all the while) or you risk it separating in the jar.

  1. Scoop into a clean 50ml pot, put on the lid and label, adding your name and the date.

TIP: To clean your pan and utensils, gently warm them and wipe around with absorbent paper to remove the remnants of oils and waxes before washing in hot soapy water.
