(PRWEB) February 1, 2011
With the cold weather very much here, the thought of gardening might be the furthest thing from many people's minds, but for the truly green-thumbed the thaw of spring and the promise of gardens bursting with flowers are just around the corner.
Gardening is renowned for its soothing effect on the mind, not to mention the healthful benefits of being active and outdoors - but the stress that it can put on backs, joints and skin is undeniable.
The Laura Ashley Gardener's Range will ease tired muscles, repair cracked hands and protect against the elements. Five products - hand lotion, exfoliating hand wash, muscle soak bath foam, all weather barrier cream and intensive hand cream - come beautifully packaged in green-hued containers, appealingly labelled with simply rendered pen and ink sketches and a few inspirational lines that evoke the beauty and respite of nature.
Prices for products within the range fall between £10 and £12, giving shoppers the option to buy just one item as a small gift or the whole collection for someone special. To add another thoughtful, and still within theme, dimension to the present, customers could add one of the Laura Ashley range of cushions like the whimsical Monty, which features a vividly feel-good gardening scene appliquéd onto a plain cotton background and is edged with jolly gingham.
All of the products in the range include natural ingredients, such as shea butter, avocado oil and aloe vera and are made in England by the Somerset Toiletry Company under licence from Laura Ashley Ltd.
