Gardner’s Hand Soap

I love planting my veggies and flowers. I find the process of planting very therapeutic and it’s rewarding to watch the fruits of my labor when I get fresh veggies and beautiful blooms.

But, the dirt-stained hands you get from gardening are far from ideal. This easy-to-make DIY Gardner’s Hand Soap is tough on dirt, yet gentle on your hands. Castile soap, sugar, almond oil, Melaleuca oil (tea tree) and Clary Sage make a germ busting, dirt cleaning,  nourishing blend.
