Cacao & Calendula: Ground Cacao Beans form a butter-rich in antioxidants and nutrients that maintain the skin hydrated, soft, and flexible. Calendula flowers calm the skin and reduce inflammation and work together with our Jojoba Seed Oil to balance our natural skin oils to replenish its nutrients and promote healing and regeneration. Cacao is the star giving us its wonderful antioxidant moisturizing properties and its sweet smell. The smell of this balm bar is similar to chocolate without being overpowering. It’s a calming scent that will stay on for a little while and will vanish as it absorbs.
Chamomile & Lavender: This lotion bar is made to gently calm your senses while soothing and relaxing your skin. Our Jojoba Seed Oil is slowly infused with these flowers that help to calm and align the skin and the mind. Raw Shea Butter acts as a moisturizing emollient by softening the skin and adding flexibility. The slightly sweet scent of this bar is made entirely by the dried flowers infused in oil.

It seems expensive for what I got. It was supposed to have a scent to it and all I can smell is shea butter. So I paid over $30 for a block of shea butter. I love the no waste idea, just wish it was of better quality.
I love these bars. They work great. They are easy to apply and I love the beeswax wraps that I can continue to use for other things. Great alternative to plastic.
The feel of the lotion once it’s on is too cakey and I didn’t love the smell.
I love how this product feels and smells on my skin. If you're transitioning straight to oil-based lotion from the cream-based lotions, however, it may take some getting used to. I recommend holding the bar in its wax wrapper and slowly rubbing the bar directly on a particularly dry patch, or gently rubbing the bar with your fingers to melt and transfer enough so that you can spread it elsewhere. It's kind of like using natural deoderants; you have to let your body heat slightly soften the product to ensure that it will transfer adequately.
Also, store these things in a cool, dry, dark place, like a bathroom drawer. Don't leave it in your car on a hot day.
This is so moisturizing!
