Lo & Behold - Gardener's Hand Salve
Annie's Advice: Keep this by the back door to soothe your hands after working outside...and then keep a second one on your nightstand to moisturize your hands and feet before bed. I also highly recommend this classy tin of hand salve as part of any gift.
Use the word salve and put your product in a tin and you've won me over. However, not all salves (nor all products in metal tins) are created equal. That's why we tested so many different brands and products before feeling comfortable telling you that this Gardener's Hand Salve by Lo & Behold is the real deal. Yes, it is the perfect product to heal and comfort your hands after a long day of working in the garden, but it is also ideal for someone who misses the scent of their garden all winter and needs a way to moisturize their winter-afflicted hands. Honestly, it also doesn't need to only be used on thirsty hands - feet, elbows, knees or any body area in need of intense moisture will benefit from this salve. And you additionally benefit from its vibrant herbal scent that is both calming and joy-inducing.
