Powder from the root of marshmallow plant has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, and has long been known as a powerful demulcent (a soothing product). Beeswax is a naturally nourishing moisturizer, and also contains anti-inflammatory and germicidal elements, which are excellent for healing all those nicks and scrapes from working in the soil. Olive oil is full of inflammation-inhibiting antioxidants, which can repair skin and establish a moisture barrier. Mint is both an aromatic treatment and an effective astringent. This cream is also great for use on the feet. (Cocoa butter, beeswax and marshmallow root powder can be found locally at The Herb Bar.)
