Sometimes watered down hand lotions just aren't enough...
This balm goes far beyond moisturizing dry chapped skin.
Occupations such as farming, construction, ranch hand, road crews,landscaping, housekeeping, the list goes on...
All these professions result in work worn cracked, chapped hands due to exposure to the weather, frequent hand washing or the bumps and scrapes that come with the job.
Or perhaps the idea of putting those shoes or boots back on in the morning causes you to flinch.
Shea Butter Balm will help repair and heal those sore blistered feet.
Shea butter comes from the seed of the African shea tree. It is a therapeutic heavy butter that once it penetrates the skin leaves it soft,smooth and elastic. Very useful for dermatitis and psoriasis sufferers. High in beneficial fatty acids, vitamins A and E, shea butter also acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Olive oil is beneficial on its own but once infused with various herbs it becomes very healing. Chamomile, rose and violets are excellent sources for inflamed and irritated skin conditions.
Lavender essential oil is added not only for its wonderful scent but its skin-reparative properties earn it a well-deserved reputation in skin care.
Using this salve with cotton gloves or socks before sleep will enhance and aid the healing process.
Be aware that those allergic to nuts or latex may have a reaction to shea butter.
This balm comes in a 2 oz. jar
Below is a bit of information for dermatitis and psoriasis sufferers:
According to MayoClinic.com, Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects the life cycle of skin cells. As a result, skin cells build up rapidly and form thick crusty patches. These patches can be unsightly and can be itchy and irritating to the sufferer. According to OrganicFacts.net, psoriasis can be helped by taking cod liver oil. It is believed by the medical community that EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), which is an omega-3 fatty acid present in fish oil, restricts the growth of inflammatory-inducing agents that can cause psoriasis. Applying fish oil topically can help to relieve this skin condition.
