Ylang Ylang and Patchouli Hand Salve

This uplifting hand cream naturally heals hard-working cracked hands and absorbs quickly to leave skin feeling supple and softened. Made from pure beeswax, with its honey and propolis, blended with natural plant oils - the ultimate help for cracked hands when skin needs some care. \n \nEnhanced with essential oils of Ylang Ylang and Patchouli for a woody, floral scent – a 70’s throwback that’s enjoying a well-deserved come-back! Ylang Ylang essential oil is traditionally used to be uplifting and an aphrodisiac. Use with care! \n \nMost skin creams or lotions are a mixture of water (aqua) and oils - have a look at the ingredients on the back of pack. Because oils and water don't mix (think of oil and vinegar) the manufacturers add emulsifiers to bind the oil and water together - these are not normally chemicals that benefit your skin. Also, because water can grow bacteria, manufacturers selling products in the UK are legally obliged to add preservatives to kill any bacteria - so most skin creams contain chemicals that will kill bacteria in the cream...and also on your skin. We prefer not to upset the skin's natural skin flora so chose not to add water to any of our products - so we don't need to add any synthetic emulsifiers and preservatives. \n \nEvery 30ml [wholesale_content]non-tamper evident [/wholesale_content]tin contains: \n
