In Bloom: Gardening with Bag Balm

In Bloom: Gardening with Bag Balm

Working in the soil takes a toll on a gardener’s hands, resulting in dry, cracked, rough skin. Many gardeners rely on Bag Balm to transform and rejuvenate even the toughest of skin.

Bag Balm is widely recognized by gardeners as the perfect moisturizer and healing agent for chapped hands, scratches, abrasions, windburn and sunburn.

“I went down to the local pharmacy to see what fixes I could find and wouldn’t you know that familiar green tin was right there! I couldn’t believe the relief I felt seeing that tin, as if my grandmother herself was standing there to take care of me. Now I’m properly prepared for a day in the garden: gloves, sunhat, water bottle, and my trusty Bag Balm follow me everywhere!”

Of course wearing gloves protects your hands from the dirt and grime. However, if you are someone who works with your hands quite a bit using gardening tools, and only wears gloves about half of the time, Bag Balm is the only product  you will need to soothe your skin this planting season.

When you've finished gardening, Bag Balm Mega Moisturizing Soap will remove dirt and grime while keeping your hands moisturized. After washing, seal in that moisture (and help protect any cuts or scrapes) with another application of Bag Balm.

PRO TIP: Apply Bag Balm before putting on gardening gloves to hydrate dry skin, soothe cuts and scrapes, and lock in moisture all day.


Rich in lanolin and made in America, Bag Balm has been working hard for over 120 years.
