What: An all-in-one magical balm for cuts, scrapes, dry hands and other skin irritations.
Why: Although my skin looks its worst in the dry winter, the spring isn’t much better, much less summer. I'm constantly plagued with cracked hands, heels and otherwise irritated skin. My neighbors don’t fare much better, as wet Pacific Northwest residents jump outside at any glimpse of sun to attack their jungle-like yards…often scraping their skin in the process.
For a quick fix that will take 40 years off your hands, pick up some Magical Healing Balm by io Herbal Alchemy, which incorporates olive oil, calendula flower, lavender essential oil and other natural herbs to create a non-greasy balm that sinks in almost immediately. Herbalist creator Jewelie Randall says that in addition to small scrapes and dry skin, customers have used it on bug bits, rashes, blisters, bee stings and as other forms of topical pain relief. Personally, I’m just happy to have avoided dry hands for another season.
