How to Have a Post-Gardening Pamper
We’ve dug through the Celtic Herbal ingredient cupboards to create a brand-new range of natural artisan products for the green-fingered gardener in you. Formulated with careful precision and expert blends, the range includes handmade, natural treats to nourish and pamper after a day in the garden.
We’ve chosen ingredients for their efficacy and functionality, that could also be plucked straight from the garden or pantry at home.
Clean away the built-up dirt on extra mucky hands using our gentle, natural soap. We’ve added shellblast and fennel seeds for natural exfoliation, leaving hands thoroughly cleansed. Coconut, olive and sweet almond oils hydrate and condition the skin, whilst the sustainably sourced beeswax gives lasting softness.
Tip: Pre-gardening run your nails along a solid bar of soap to stop mud building up whilst you garden. The soap will act as a physical barrier keeping them free of dirt!
Nourish your hands with a natural GARDENERS HAND SALVE
Once cleansed, massage in natural hand salve to help restore any moisture lost whilst gardening. Our Gardeners Hand Salve is perfectly pocket-sized and packed with sea buckthorn, rosemary & black pepper for on the go relief and repair of hard working hands.
Tip: Apply an oil based hand moisturiser (like our GARDENERS HAND SALVE) before gardening to help protect the pores in your skin from collecting dirt.
Soothe sore muscles with GARDENERS MUSCLE OIL
Working in the garden can leave your muscles and joints feeling achy and sore. Don’t just wait for it to fade away - use a natural muscle oil to soothe the aches and pains away. Our Gardeners Muscle Oil is formulated with rosemary, black pepper and marjoram for deep relief that keeps you connected to the scent of the garden. Not only does it help relieve aches, the sweet almond & coconut oils also help soften and nourish your skin.
Tip: Feeling particularly achy? Before applying, take a warm bath with natural magnesium salts to help replenish any minerals lost whilst working. After your dip, massage in the muscle oil to help lock in the moisture & minerals gained from the salts.
Relax with GARDENERS CITRONELLA CANDLE

Rosemary oil is a popular choice for skincare as it contains essential vitamins including iron and calcium and is packed full of antioxidants. The oil has a stimulating effect which can improve circulation and help to relieve muscle and joint aches & pain. Aromatherapy benefits include helping to reduce stress and improving concentration.
When we think of black pepper, skincare doesn’t typically come to mind! Black pepper oil is actually ideal for relieving aches and pains, whilst its high antioxidant content detoxifies the body.
Shellblast is a natural exfoliant made of ground walnut shells - it’s a great natural alternative to synthetic microbeads and harsher exfoliants, offering a much more gentle, effective exfoliation.
Pomegranate seed oil is rich in antioxidants - it’s a really great moisturiser that can help to nourish and soften skin, whilst its anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe and repair broken, hard working skin.
Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, sea buckthorn oil can help to protect against skin damage, aiding skin repair and regeneration. This means that it's really useful for helping to heal any cuts, scrapes or sun damage that occur whilst gardening.
Another ingredient straight from the garden! Marjoram oil is great at soothing sore muscles and joints - it’s ideal for use in muscle and massage oils. In addition to this, it can also help to calm - apply topically to relieve neck tension.
Renowned for its bug-repelling properties, citronella is a great natural alternative to harsher repellents, and offers a refreshing, citrus scent.
