Super Simple Spring Gardener Salve 2


It’s spring, and though there may still be snow on the ground where you live, it’s time to get some seeds started and gardening tasks begun.

When you start gardening, though, your hands will take a beating. Today we’ll make a super simple salve that will have your hands looking and feeling fantastic.

The base for this salve may have you going “Huh?” because it’s our Soy Lip Solutions! This blend of Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Castor Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, and Cocoa Butter makes a perfect base to pamper your hands and cuticles.

We could leave it at that, but we won’t, because there are so many wonderful things we can add to boost the efficacy. This time around, our focus will be on extracts: Matcha Green Tea, Dandelion Flower, Calendula, and Marshmallow Root. We’ll also add some Helichrysum Essential Oil for its skin loving properties.

Because we’re using the Soy Lip Solutions base, this will go really fast. Let’s get busy!

I'm a crazy goat lady who got into making my own soap with goat milk, found MMS to order supplies, and now I get to combine my love of creating skin care products with a job to pay the feed bill. I live in Alaska and greatly enjoy the unique aspects of my northern home - summer days when it never gets dark and the Northern Lights dancing above in winter. Favorite scents include Wild Mint and Ivy, Rhubarb & Sugar Cane, and Eucalyptus Spearmint.
