The hands of a gardener take much abuse.

Undoubtedly every gardener has good intentions to wear gloves when working in the dirt, but gardeners are easily distracted. 😉

Calendula

Calendula blossoms are considered antibacterial. They are the focus of scientific studies for their sterilization properties.

These beautiful blooms are an ideal component in many lotions due to their softening and soothing nature.

Furthermore, calendula’s antibacterial properties may help with any small cuts or scrapes that are often found on a gardener’s hands.

Wilderness Family Naturals Calendula Blossom Petals are perfect for a gardener’s abused hands.

Meadowsweet

Meadowsweet contains a naturally high amount of salicylic acid, the same compound found in aspirin.

Additionally, meadowsweet herb is traditionally used to fight inflammation. So it is an ideal herb to infuse into oil for slathering on abused hands and inflamed joints.
