Knitter's Lotion Bar: Sugarplum


When I started dyeing yarn, my hands started to get really dry from all of the washing and rinsing of yarn I needed to do. I got interested in making my own lotion bars. I've been so pleased with how they well they work and they all smell absolutely amazing! I thought this particular design would be adorable as a stocking stuffer for the holidays. The lotion bar itself is a bit more petite than our other bars, which makes it perfect for smaller hands.

Made with beeswax from local bees; coconut oil; shea butter; lanolin; and a natural fragrance oil from my favorite trusted source for apothecary supplies, Brambleberry (you can read about the difference between essential oils and their natural fragrance oils here), the Sugarplum lotion bars have a sweet, fruity scent that is a mix of grapefruit, raspberry, melon, sweet pea, rose, and coconut.

To use, just hold the lotion bar in your hands for several seconds until it starts to melt a bit, then rub lotion into skin and cuticles, or anywhere you need some TLC. It also works great on feet, elbows, and knees.

Please note: Lotion bars are solid at room temperature but can start to soften in very hot weather while in transit. Your bar will be packed in tin with absorbent paper, but shipping it at this time of year may result in the design appearing a bit soft by the time it reaches you.

All bars come in a reusable tin, as pictured. Net weight: Approximately 2 oz.
