Knitters are aware that one of the draw backs of knitting is the effect it can have on your poor hands.
Its awful if you suffer from Arthritis as your hands stiffen up and become sore and its then inevitable to keep knitting :(
Some days when your done doing a lot of knitting you really feel the effect it has on your knuckles. So i began researching ways to help with this problem. Im not a fan of commercial toiletries so I decided to combat a way to help knitters ease the pain.
I began researching ways that essential oils would help to relieve the aches and pains which knitting can exacerbate.
I would love to share with you what I came up with as Ive been using it for a few months with a lot of testing and this is the best Ive come up with.
Im calling it Knitters Hand Balm.
Its safe to use on all skin types. I have dry skin so also use hand cream every day, but use I apply this balm (which you only need a tiny amount) by rubbing a bit on my knuckles before knitting and it really helps while massaging it in for a few minutes.
This is a solid balm, and a little goes a very long way.
The balm is made from all natural ingredients and safe for you to use. It doesnt leave any greasy residue on your hands and doesnt stain or make the wool oily.
The tin is 50gm.
