I am a huge fan of Botanicals Rose & Camellia and have purchased many/all of the products in this range and wouldn't ever be without them now. However, I have been using this product - Soothing Salve Lavender & Chamomile - for approx 6 weeks now. I purchased it because it says it soothes Eczema. Rather than use the stronger ointment prescribed by my GP I thought I would try this. Unfortunately it hasn't worked on a patch of Eczema I have which only appears spasmodically. It made no difference at all. I am using it up as a hand cream albeit that is not what I purchased it for - and I would agree with the other reviews here with regards to the hands.

A friend gave me this balm as a present. I have had a problem with flaky skin on my arm for months and followed my doctor's recommendation to use a well-known proprietary skin cream to no effect. After less than a week of using this balm day and night the problem has completely cleared up. It's miraculous stuff; I couldn't recommend it highly enough - do try it!

Whilst on holiday both my teenege daughter and step daughter got a little too much sun on their shoulders whilst in the pool. I applied lavender balm that evening and by the morning all redness and soreness had gone! This is a holiday essential! Its the perfect aftersun balm. Best kept in the fridge or out of the heat.

A very effective soothing balm not only great for hands but, also the feet. I used this product on my feet and it cleared up a long standing skin problem.

This wonderful balm not only smells gorgeous but is so effective. I have tried all sorts of hand lotions and balms which are either too greasy, too light or just ineffective. I am out walking in all weathers and enjoy gardening so my hands really suffer. This product is great - moisturising and nourishing without leaving a greasy trail, I am delighted with it. A little goes a long way.
