Hello,
I have always a few pots of Bag balm around.
Thing is, it is not only good for the skin, i use it as wound sealant on most bonsai as well.

Bag Balm was a godsend when practicing bonsai for a year in Japan. It is greasy. I had also taken a product less greasy & advertised for use by Norwegian fisherman, but Bag Balm provided longer protection per application. I think I found it at Walmart!

AHHHH Walmart Chris Razz All I know about Walmart here in Blighty, is the peeps that appear via an email pictorial from well meaning friends around the world! lol! Thank whoever that I don't have a Walmart in the vicinity; that is not to suggest for one precious second that anyone who uses Walmart resembles the images I get from said world wide friends who send me images of Walmart shoppers ... OH FORGET IT! Hat and coat (cos it's chilly ... I'm gone WHOOSH!)

Ah but you probably do: they just cleverly disguise it by calling it ASDA here.

My Dad swears by Zinc and caster oil. Its not a branded product just something he picks up from a local chemist. It should be availiable from most chemists - it really works well in healing and stopping cracked skin.

I am about to put this to the test and will feed back the results later.

I only hope that it makes up in effectiveness what it lacks in pleasantness of aroma. It's bad enough looking like a... erm ... udder without actually smelling like one. Embarassed


Well it worked reasonably well but is, as Chris says, a bit greasy. Nothing an hour long bath wouldn't shift though.

But given that I was slaggered in cows' udder cream, I did cycle rather circumspectly past the field with the bull in it. Wink
