Great Elm's handcreams are amazingly effective, full of herbal goodness, are highly absorbent AND smell gorgeous. Nothing better!
Handcream is a necessity for most of us - but it's hard to find something that works. Great Elm has solved your problem!
Our handcreams are also very intensive and nutritional - so only a little is needed to do the job.
Made by hand at our Somerset workshop with organic oils and traditional herbs from an English country garden.
Buy it for yourself, or your favourite friend, or aunt, or mother, or sister ... anyone in fact who deserves the best!
Buy the hand cream on its own - either Geranium & Apricot OR Marjoram & Almond OR in a charmingly useful giftpack with a hand massager.
Geranium & Apricot Intensive Handcream: It smells delicious, sinks in easily, is smooth and non-greasy. Full of nutritious, skin-friendly apricot kernel and rapeseed oils, soothing honey and juniper hydrosol, this hand cream is a serious contender for best ever. Lavender and rose geranium provide an unbeatable aroma. This is made in small batches, without any skin-harming nasties, with herbs from our garden.
We use nothing but the most delicious rose geranium essential oil to give it a beautiful aroma, but geranium does so much more too: helps regenerate skin cells, and keep you safe from little infections so easily picked up when your hands are hard at work, good at stopping blood flow, and of course it is a wonderful toner.
Marjoram & Almond Nutritious Handcream
This is a very useful, fresh herb cream that actually works: it softens and feeds the skin, and has some useful healing herbs added. It absorbs easily, without leaving any oiliness. The fresh aromas of marjoram, lavender and rosemary have been added to the highly nutritious emollient oil of sweet almonds along with a lot of useful moisture in the form of a lemon balm infusion and hydrosols of marjoram and juniper. There is even a touch of honey and beeswax to bring some extra vitamins and minerals and 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.
