Solid lotion bars are a great way to moisturize severe dry and cracked skin by applying solid butters and wax that are thick enough to reach the cracks and crevices and create a barrier to keep moisture in and heal from the inside out. Sometimes, a liquid lotion just doesn't work quite as well because it is emulsified with water for a thinner consistency to allow the user to quickly spread it on the skin. For severe skin issues, a solid lotion will be a better choice than liquid. It looks like a bar of soap, It is easy to use and with zero waste!
The Lemongrass Solid Lotion bar is made with natural high quality ingredients that are specifically formulated for the skin and can be used, even if you do not have skin issues. It is made in small controlled batches to ensure the necessary proportions of botanicals are in each bar for maximum benefits. Made with our own local raw beeswax, organic raw unrefined cocoa butter, organic grapeseed and lemongrass oil.
Note- SOME batches of beeswax contains natural dark specks of propolis. This may look like a blemish but in fact are little bee bonuses for the skin.
The beeswax is harvested from our own hives and worked in house to produce a high quality wax that is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Beeswax has proven anti inflammatory properties, encourages wound healing, acts as a protective barrier without clogging pores.

It is an antioxidant powerhouse with additional anti inflammatory properties and pairs extremely well with our natural beeswax.
Grapeseed is an excellent neutral plant oil that works for all skin types and is lightweight without clogging pores.
