We created The Touch of Tara™: Healing Hands and Cuticle Treatment to beautify your hands and cuticles with proven ingredients.
Ever since we introduced Oil of Tara™, we have been asked about a body cream or a hand cream with the same light verbena fragrance that many of our customers enjoy so much. For four years, we wondered how to do this, since everybody in the world seems to have a few, driving prices well below the level we require to maintain our standards. Finally, we came up with a solution that seems to please everyone. First, we added a little Oil of Tara™ to our unique cream base to add just the essence we needed without the full strength of the formula. Since this would be used as a hand cream, we also added pure extract of arnica, (arnica montana) "the wonder herb".
Arnica, a bright yellow daisy-like flowering plant found Central Europe is typically rubbed on the skin to soothe bruises, burns, and arthritic inflammation. Its historic antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities can reduce pain and swelling and it is used in hundreds of European health care products. Our arnica is grown and extracted in Northhampton, MA. With this, we were able to pass along the savings to everyone who wanted the "touch" of Oil of Tara™ in a naturally medicated cream base.
To boost its effectiveness against minor sunburns and irritations, we added aloe vera gel, so well known for its soothing and healing effects on the skin. To impart freshness, we blended in some cucumber as well, and to help heal damaged cuticles, we fortified it with calendula. The Touch of Tara™ is a light bouquet containing the best ingredients from each of our products in a hand and cuticle treatment you can use with confidence and pleasure.
