Benefits of our natural skincare

Benefits of our natural skincare

At Boxworth Botanicals our passion is to make skincare creams that are natural and really make a difference.

Staying indoors, hand washing and using sanitisers are currently super important for all of us at the moment and quite rightly so; we want to beat this Virus as soon as we can. I am getting calls from people whose skin is suffering badly as a result of the constant hand washing and chemicals from the gels. This can severely affect the skin; drying it out, making it sore and itchy and is especially so if you suffer, perhaps, from eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis. So, I thought I would explain about some of our natural plant based creams and how they may be able to help you at the moment.

All of our creams are

Free from 

  • Parabens (chemical preservatives)
  • SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulphate: known to be a main cause of increasing dryness and dermatitis)
We use           
  • Natural flower waters like Chamomile and Lavender
  • Natural herbal extracts like Ginseng and Borage
  • Natural flower extracts like Calendula and Echinacea
  • 100% pure fresh essential oils for therapeutic and treatment quality products
 The benefits 
  • Freshly made in small batches so are effective and really work
  • Non greasy so they easily absorb into the skin
  • Economical - a small amount goes a long way
  • Specialist blends for different purposes
  • Only plant based ingredients
  • Fabulous fragrances that are uplifting and a pleasure to use



Here are just a few of our creams that will be good to use at the moment and what our customers say about them.

Calendula Cream

Calendula cream is one of our great favourites. It is loved by many people. It is almost fragrance free and is deeply moisturising and healing. It is really useful for eczema, skin infections, very dry sore skin. The cream is light and easy to use all over the body including the face. It is really helpful for post chemotherapy and radiotherapy skin as it helps to heal and reduce the effect of burning. I wouldn’t be without it!

What our customers say…

For the last few years I have suffered from eczema on my eyelids. My eyelids would itch and swell and weep and be extremely uncomfortable. The only thing that kept it in check (and I had tried a lot of things) was steroids, and obviously these were not a long-term solution. Then I started applying this cream in place of the steroids, and the change has been remarkable: the eczema has gone. I cannot recommend this cream highly enough, and it is not an overstatement to say that it has changed my life. (I have not written for a review for any purchase before, but I feel this cream merits my first ever review).

Lavender Cream

This cream is really rich, made with English Lavender that is grown in the depths of the countryside; cooling, calming and healing for hands and body. It’s a strong effective blend and beautiful to use. It’s also fabulous for rubbing around shoulders and chest at night time for restful sleep.  

What our customers say…

My skin has never been in such good condition since using the Lavender Cream. Also whilst on holiday I used it to prevent mosquito bites and it worked a treat.

Lavender and Tea Tree Cream

This is our unique blend that has fantastic healing properties and is selling fast. It is antiseptic from the Tea Tree but calming with the Lavender. It is more astringent than Lavender Cream on its own but is also good for all of you who don’t want a very floral fragrance.

What our customers say…          

My daughter has sore and cracked hands and has found this cream to be the best she has used to sooth and heal them. And it smells good too!

Nourishing Cream

This is a cream made with Lime, Geranium and Sandalwood Amyris essential oils. It’s a super intensive blend, designed for dry skin including dry winter skin. The cream has an uplifting floral and citrusy fragrance, just like a natural perfume.

What our customers say…

I have dry skin, especially on my hands which develops into eczema if untreated. This cream is amazing. It clears up dry skin in a flash. It smells incredible and is easily absorbed. I love it and won't buy anything else. I love that it has nothing nasty in it - simply good food for the skin with great results.

Gardeners Hand Cream

This is our strongest cream and is for hands only. It is a proper gardeners hand cream but is also useful for anyone who works outside. The cream has the added benefits of being anti-fungal and a barrier cream. It blends patchouli, which is very healing, and Rosemary which is antiseptic and will heal cracks and splits. It has a wonderful herbal smell.

What our customers say…

I work in a very busy garden centre and for past 2 years have suffered dreadfully with sore cracked hand BUT no more this cream turned my hands around in just a couple of days .... 10/10 it’s brilliant!
