Spring and early summer are my favorite time of year. After a long and cold winter I was more than eager to get my hands in the dirt and watch my garden grow.
Of course all this digging in the dirt leaves my skin rough and dry.
Below are a few of my favorite post garden products to heal and renew.
Renew Your Hands and Feet: Exfoliate with Handcrafted Soap
Handcrafted soap is excellent for Garden Hands (and beach feet). Choose a natural soap with build in exfoliation to remove tired (and dirty!) dead skin. Choose To Go., Lavender & Rhassoul, or Happiness.
Don’t want to get dirt under your finger nails?
Take a bar of soap, dig finger nails into bar leaving soap under nails. Leave under nails while gardening. When you are done, wash hands. The soap will prevent dirt from getting stuck under your nails!
Renew your Body and Feet: Therapeutic Bath Salts
Spent too much time in the garden or by the river? Our special blend of Therapeutic Bath Salts soothes tired muscles and moisturizes and repairs skin. Dead Sea Salts, release toxins and excess fluids. Calendula Oil, heals, softens and soothes skin. Alfalfa Leaf Powder aids in relieving fatigue, and inflammation.
Been running around barefoot? Soothe and soften feet by using the Therapeutic Bath Salts as a foot soak.
Soften Up Salve is excellent to soften, soothe, repair and heal garden hands, knees, feet, sunburns and even bug bites. The secret is in the botanically infused oils. Calendula oil soothes and heals dry skin. St John’s Wort aids in healing wounds, sunburns and bug bites. Sea Buckthorn treats scars and dry skin. Apply after a long day in the garden to repair skin and treat bug bites. Don’t forget to apply Soften Up Salve (or pick one the Firming Body Creams such as Garden Hippie or Lavender) before (and after) sun exposure to reduce the possibility of your skin drying out and/or skin peeling.
