This gentle skin balm long had an honoured place in medieval and renaissance receipt books. It is one for the whole family, moisturising and protecting the skin from the environment with a very low fragrance for sensitive noses and skins.
Our greatest fans for this balm are people working in harsh environments including mechanics, hairstylists, gardeners, builders and kitchen staff.

Incredible! A must try!
If, like me, you don’t have the luxury of someone to do life’s dirty work for you (think gardening, scrubbing, mending and generally running around like a mad thing – that’s after a long day of secular work!) then this balm will probably do wonders for your skin as it has mine! I have particularly found it a saviour in winter, on my hands and even lips and face, when the cold has had no mercy. It may feel quite rich at first, but pop it on overnight and the skin feels so much softer, smoother and plumper the next day. Knowing it’s made with such simple, good ingredients makes me feel better too. Please don’t stop making this! I will be back to buy more (it just lasts soooo long)!
