Hereward Farms

Well hello, 2021!!!


We are nearly halfway through January and wishing for warmer days and sunshine, but here we are! Although with 3,000 plants coming for us to plant in May, I think I am okay to stay here for a little bit longer :)


Thank you to everyone who has supported us these last few months since the launch! We are out of some inventory but will be making some fresh small batches over the next few weeks and possibly a new Black Label Potion will be coming in the next week or so, so stay tuned!


New Product Alert

We had a new product launch a few weeks ago - our Angry Dad Beard Oil has launched! As a tribute to our sister company, Angry Dad Motors and Angry Dad himself, we created this beautiful, masculine blend of infused lavender, rosemary and cedarwood. We promise you will love it on him as much as he will.

Alleviate Dry Skin with Hereward Farm Products

Speaking from my personal experience, I was left with scaly, dry legs all winter long no matter how much lotion I put on. Ditch that lotion and use our infused lavender products!


Dry skin can be uncomfortable, itchy, and sometimes even painful. Fortunately, natural remedies can help alleviate dry skin, and lavender oil is one of them. Lavender oil has moisturizing and soothing properties that can help hydrate and calm dry skin. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of lavender oil and how to use it to treat dry skin.

What is Lavender Oil?


Lavender oil is an essential oil extracted from the flowers of the lavender plant. It has been used for centuries for its healing and relaxing properties. Lavender oil contains compounds such as linalool and linalyl acetate, which have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Benefits of Lavender Oil for treating Dry Skin


Lavender oil has several benefits for treating dry skin:

  1. Moisturizes the Skin: Lavender oil contains natural fatty acids that can help moisturize the skin and prevent dryness.

  2. Soothes Irritation: The anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil can help soothe irritated skin.

  3. Reduces Inflammation: The anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil can also help reduce inflammation caused by dry skin.

  4. Fights Bacteria: Lavender oil has antimicrobial properties that can help fight bacteria on the skin, which can be particularly helpful for those with dry, cracked skin.

How to Use Lavender Oil for Dry Skin

There are several ways to use lavender oil for dry skin:

  1. Add a few drops of lavender oil to your bathwater. This can help moisturize your skin while you relax.

  2. Mix a few drops of lavender oil with carrier oil such as coconut oil or jojoba oil. Apply the mixture to your skin after showering or bathing to help lock in moisture.

  3. Mix a few drops of lavender oil with aloe vera gel. Apply the mixture to dry, irritated areas of your skin for soothing relief.

  4. Add a few drops of lavender oil to your favourite moisturizer or body lotion. This can help boost the moisturizing properties of your lotion.

  5. Make a lavender oil spray by adding a few drops of lavender oil to a spray bottle filled with water. Spray the mixture onto your skin throughout the day to help hydrate and soothe dry skin.

Precautions When Using Lavender Oil

While lavender oil is generally considered safe, there are a few precautions you should take:

  1. Always dilute lavender oil before applying it to your skin. Undiluted essential oils can cause skin irritation.

  2. Do a patch test before using lavender oil for the first time. Apply a small amount of diluted lavender oil to a small area of the skin and wait 24 hours to see if you have any adverse reactions.

  3. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, consult a doctor before using lavender oil.

  4. Avoid using lavender oil on broken or irritated skin.
