Yay lotion bars! (also know as "melts" in some parts of the world). These feel and smell great, made in partnership with lavender and several kinds of mints that grow here at Silly Dog Studios on Whidbey Island.
To use: Hold the bar between your palms to warm it. In winter or when your hands are unusually cold, this may take a minute. Then, rub it in to dry skin--hands, arms, elbows, legs, feet, heels--just like regular body lotion.
Size: The bars are 2 ounces.
Ingredients: Grown on Whidbey (at Silly Dog Studios) lavender, spearmint, and peppermint infused into organic extra virgin olive oil, plus coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and just a couple of drops of Whidbey’s own Lavender Wind Farm's lavender essential oil plus peppermint essential oil.
Packaging: We're being as environmentally conscious as we can be. At the moment, we use a piece of food-safe parchment paper and a paper label to wrap the lotion bars. You may find that this is enough packaging for you, or you may want to transfer it to a small reusable jar or tin at home. We are looking into a paper tub with a lid as an option this year for those who want it. It will add ~$1 to the cost of the product. If that interests you, let me know and we'll pursue it further.
Notice for people who live in warmer climates: These bars were made for locals and formulated for the Pacific Northwest in the U.S. They begin to melt at body temperature. If you live in a place substantially warmer than here (where summer temps are usually around 70-75 degrees F), you may find them too melt-y for your taste. Also, if we ship them to you during warm months, watch for them and get them out of your warm mailbox or out of the box on your warm porch ASAP!
