Knitter's Lotion Bar: Early Spring


When I started dyeing yarn a few years ago, 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 with my own customized essential oil blends. I've been so pleased with how they well they work and they smell absolutely amazing!

Made with beeswax from local bees; coconut oil; unrefined shea butter; lanolin; and essential oils of elemi, chamomile, and ylang ylang; and jasmine absolute, the Early Spring lotion bars first appeared in the Secret Garden apothecary boxes and smell like the first green shoots popping up through the cold soil.

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: 1.85 oz.
