Dry Skin? Lavender Can Help!

Like a superhero coming to the rescue of a group of innocent bystanders, lavender (the superhero of the plant world – or so we think!) can even come to rescue of dry skin. “How?” You say? With a generous application of our wonderful Lavender Hand and Body Lotion, we say!

As anyone who regularly works outside with their hands will know, the ravages of our climate (even here in Jersey!) can cause your hands to become dry and cracked and if left untreated they can become red, inflamed and ultimately extremely painful. Often sufferers are advised to protect their hands, keep out of the cold, wear gloves etc but this can be easier said than done when there’s a 9 acre lavender farm to be tended! And in extreme cases hands can become so dry that steroid creams are prescribed. But what if you don’t want to turn to either impractical solutions or to harsh medical treatments?

Lavender has been used through the ages for its healing and soothing properties and so it’s the perfect choice to treat inflamed, cracked and generally unhappy dry skin. But to make our Lavender Hand and Body Lotion even better we combined our home-grown and home-distilled lavender essential oil with super moisturising almond oil and shea butter. This combination will soothe redness and relieve any inflammation and pain, whilst the almond oil and she butter will replace lost moisture into your hands leaving them smooth and soft again. And don’t just take our word for it. One happy customer left a testimonial on our website saying:

“On a recent visit to Jersey, I bought a bottle of your Lavender Hand Cream. ‘Wow’ is my first observation! My hands are well worn and not very young now, but with your cream, they feel like silk. They look far less wrinkly. Great stuff. I shall be ordering online when this one is empty!”

And not only can this wonderful lotion treat dry skin, it can also work wonders on areas of scar formation. Another customers reports:

“I would like to say how good the Lavender Hand & Body Lotion is. I had an operation on my foot in August and I used the lotion on my scar and it has healed and softened and almost gone. Also my eczema is a lot better on my legs. Lavender does have healing properties!”

Also you can add a couple of extra drops of our Lavender Essential Oil to our Lavender Hand and Body Lotion and use it as a massage lotion for arthritic hands and limbs.
