DIY Hand Cleanser
Updated on October 22, 2014

We love this time of year – the golden slant of autumn sunlight, the crispness in the air, the natural cycles we see in the harvest, the turning foliage, the move toward hibernation and quiet growth. And as we witness nature’s changes, we change too. With fall’s arrival and winter approaching, we turn to our herbal allies to stay healthy through these transitions.

How do we keep our bodies strong? By using plant power of course. Instead of using chemical-infused products that are harsh on the skin and composed of a laundry list of synthetic agents, we turn to plants that naturally cleanse and can add a little aromatherapy into our lives. We are always on the lookout for new plant-based solutions to help support wellness, so our herbalists created this DIY hand cleanser to help you stay well this fall. With the anti-microbial power of tea tree and the soothing scent of lavender, this gel smells heavenly and helps protect you against fall’s less welcome visitors.
