This soothing hand cream is handcrafted here at the farm using comfrey, a perennial medicinal herb. This skin soothing cream is great for hard working hands, dry, cracked hands or eczema. It's great to add to your medicine cabinet or beauty routine if you're like me and want to use products focusing on simple, natural ingredients whenever possible. I grow the comfrey here at the farm so it is produced organically. I harvest the leaves, place in a clean glass jar and cover with olive oil. Once the oil is infused, I strain it and keep in a cool dark spot so I can create this soothing balm any time of the year. To make this salve, I combine the infused oil with beeswax, and essential oils to enhance the soothing, healing properties. There are two scent options, both are great for healing dry, cracked skin. Our original blend uses patchouli, myrrh, and ylang ylang oils. We also have a gentle lavender version for folks who are sensitive to any of the other essential oils or who just don't care for the scent of patchouli. I am not a doctor, and the FDA has not approved this listing. Talk to your own doctor, do your own research, and test on a small patch of your skin before you use it all over, especially if you think you may be sensitive to any ingredients. **Comfrey products should be avoided during pregnancy ** The salve is packaged in a 2-ounce metal tin, although we find that this size holds approximately 1.5 ounces of this particular product by weight. We offer a variety of healthy and natural body care products in our store!
