Made with nourishing cocoa butter, shea butter, hazelnut oil and infused with nettle, you'll feel like you've stepped into the middle of a British woodland.
Handcrafted solid lotion bar with cocoa and shea butter, coconut and hazelnut oils, infused with nettle. Cedarwood, and Juniper for an earthy woody scent.
All of our lotion bars are made from a base of cocoa butter and coconut oil, in our Woodland lotion bar we combine these with luxurious shea butter, nourishing hazelnut oil and lightweight sunflower oil infused with nettle and Vitamin E. We have chosen the oils and botanicals that we associate with our wild British woodlands to bring you a unique whole body experience.
We then add our own unique essential oil blend which we make in-house from Cedarwood, Juniper, Rosemary and Lime to add a grounding, woody earthy scent that will clear your head and quieten your mood like a walk through the woods.
Woodland Lotion Bar is VEGAN friendly.
Minimum weight 50g bar, packaged in an aluminium tin or greaseproof paper bag.
Why make lotion in a bar form? Simply to avoid any need for plastic packaging and to create a concentrated product free from water. You can therefore choose to receive your bar either as a ‘standard’ packaging option - in an aluminium tin which can be reused with your next bar or recycled - or as a ‘refill’ option - in a greaseproof paper bag which can be composted or recycled after use. We’re all doing our bit to help reduce plastic use in our homes.
How to use your bar:
As these bars do not contain any water, they are wonderfully concentrated and a little goes a long way.
Rub between your clean, dry hands; the lotion will start to melt as it warms up on skin contact. Rub this oil into anywhere that needs some extra attention, especially dry hands, knees, elbows, cracked heels, dry feet and rough skin.
To make sure your lotion bar lasts as long as possible, do not use with wet hands and store in its tin in a cool dry place.
Some of the ingredients we have chosen include:
Hazelnut Oil is high in oleic and linoleic acids, proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is a dry feeling oil, its tannins help increase skin circulation and its astringent properties make it good for oily or acne-prone skin.
Shea Butter is rich in vitamins, plant sterols, minerals and other nourishing compounds for the skin. The butter softens, protects against drying and nourishes. High in vitamins E and A, shea butter locks in moisture, increases elasticity and evens out skin tone.
Nettle is high in phenols, which give them powerful antioxidant properties and help keep free radicals under control. Nettle is anti-inflammatory, astringent, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and mildly deodorant.
Cedarwood Essential Oil is grounding, calming and combats negativity.
Rosemary Essential Oil is invigorating, refreshing, stimulating, improves circulation, and is a good decongestant.
Juniper Essential Oil is relaxing and can help relieve mental and emotional issues such as anxiety and mental fatigue.
Lime Essential Oil is energising, cleansing, purifying, renews the spirit and the mind.
