Hard-working, penetrating cream, full of healing herbs and oils that soothe and nourish. And it smells deliciously of an English kitchen herb garden.
Handcream is a necessity for hard-working hands - and especially so for gardeners (although they'll often deny it!).
Our handcreams are also very intensive and nutritional. This one is packed with healing English country garden traditional herbs and the most beautiful, nurturing, rich nut oils.
Made by hand at our Somerset workshop.
Physick: from ancient Greek: 'the use and knowledge of nature'.
Think of a fresh summer’s day in a cottage herb garden, the lively green aromas of rosemary, marjoram and lavender scent the air and bring delight to your senses.
We have added to those clean, refreshing characters the nutritious, deeply penetrating, emollient oil of sweet almonds. In with that we have mixed a lot of useful moisture in the form of a lemon balm infusion and hydrosols of marjoram and juniper along with a touch of honey to bring some extra vitamins and minerals as well as its amazing capacity to keep moisture locked into the skin.
Juniper, rosemary, marjoram and lavender all have cleansing, clearing, antiseptic properties. Juniper is also useful in reducing bumps and small swellings. As a result, our handcream is an all-round, hardworking cream that actually works: it softens and feeds the skin, aiding recovery from all that toil in the garden.
And it also sinks in quickly, without leaving a horrible oil slick, leaving your hands still able to get a grip.
SUITS: any skin type.
METHOD: massage sparingly into clean, dry, overworked hands as often as necessary.
