Hand made hand lotion bars
Our solid hand and body lotion bars are a blend of beeswax, cocoa
butter, almond oil & other natural vegetable oils. They are hand crafted
in southern Virginia. While solid at room temperature, the lotion
softens at skin temperature and can then be messaged into the skin. The
oils will soak in and help to moisturize and soften the skin. Because
this is an oil based rather than a water based product, the lotion will
remain on the skin for much longer and is especially beneficial for cold
weather conditions or as a night cream.
The lotions are available Fragrance Free, and in four scented varieties,
all using only pure essential oils,
The solid hand lotions come in a round slip-covered tin that can be
safely carried in your purse, pocket or pack. The tins are also useful
once the lotion is used up for carrying small items. They are packaged
in 3 oz bars.
