Frequently Asked Questions

What is a lotion bar?

A lotion bar is lotion, but in a solid form. To apply the lotion bar, you rub it between your hands or directly on the part of the body that needs it. It will melt with the warmth of your skin! The lotion bar is meant to be applied to dry skin and you can apply it anywhere on the body. Some of the most common places include hands, feet, lower legs, elbows etc. You do not need to wet the lotion bar or your skin prior to applying. Tip: try applying to skin after a warm bath or shower.

How do you apply a lotion bar?

  • Simply pick the bar up in your hands and gently turn the bar over, this will warm up the bar making it easy to apply to any area.
  • Another option is to directly rub the warmed bar onto the area you want like your feet, knees, elbows, hands, etc

Do you have to wet the lotion bar?

You do not have to wet the lotion bar.  It softens with the heat of your hands.

Will my lotion bar melt?

The lotion bar does not melt and has even been tested inside of a hot vehicle (see IGTV video, “Will our Lotion Bars melt?” on our Instagram page). For this reason, our lotion bars are great to take with you anywhere! They will survive in your purse, luggage, hot vehicle etc.

Will my deodorant melt?

Yes. Our jars of deodorant will melt when placed in a hot environment. They are best stored in a place that is cool and dark. If you happen to find your deodorant melted, give it a stir and place in your refrigerator. Please note that your deodorant will change in consistency under different temperatures. This is normal and will still work.  See Instagram highlight, “Product Info” for more on this topic.

Do you offer refills for the lotion bar tins?

Yes! You can purchase lotion bars refills for your empty tin. What this means is you can purchase just a lotion bar without a tin for a $1.00 off the original price. For example, a lemongrass lotion bar is usually $20.00. However, once you have used that lemongrass lotion bar you will be left with an empty tin. You can reuse your tin and we will happily refill it with a lemongrass lotion bar at the discounted price of 19.00$. Our refill program is helpful for anyone who uses one of our lotion bars on a regular basis.

Can I use your lotion bars on my children?

Our lotion bars are safe for children, however, we do recommend testing the product on a small area of their skin before total application and discontinue if rash or irritation arises. Use caution when using our original lotion bars without CBD oil on any child under the age of 1 as our essential oils are not diluted for the use on children below 1 years of age. 
 
Caution: Our CBD lotion bars are not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

Can you use these lotion bars when pregnant or breastfeeding?

Consult your doctor prior to use, however, here is a link from parents today regarding which essential oils to avoid in each trimester.

What is CBD?

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis sativa plant (specifically the flowers, leaves and stem of the cannabis sativa plant). It is a naturally occurring substance that can be used in products like oils, lotions, bath salts, bath bombs etc to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. CBD oil also has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a good alternative and could help to reduce pain throughout the body. We use organic and high quality CBD Isolate that is THC free and sourced exclusively from Canadian hemp farms.

What is hemp seed oil?

Hemp seed oil is the oil extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. There is no cannabinoids like CBD or THC in hemp oil.  This ingredient is packed with healthy fats and is known for its moisturizing benefits. Hemp Seed oil also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can make it a great oil to help fight skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

How do you use the CBD lotion bar?

It really depends on what you’re using it for.  If you are using it for aches and pain, then you would rub the lotion bar on the area that is giving you trouble. If you have a headache, then rub the lotion bar across your forehead, temples, or the back of your neck.  If you are using it for relaxation then you could use it as your everyday lotion.

Can you use the deodorant on your feet?

This may seem like an odd question, but it has been tested and great at combating foot odor on a hot day.

Why natural deodorant?

Many over the counter deodorants can contain harsh chemicals and are scented with fragrance oil.  Antiperspirants also contain aluminum and some studies now show that antiperspirant use is being connected with Breast Cancer and Alzheimers Disease.  We provide a healthier and more natural alternative. Our natural deodorant is made using raw materials such as coconut oil, shea butter, baking soda, and arrowroot powder. These ingredients combined with essential oils helps to combat odour and keep you fresh for long periods of time.

How do I apply the deodorant?

To apply the deodorant, take out a pea-sized amount with your finger and rub into each armpit using a circular motion. If any irritation occurs, discontinue use. If you have just shaved your armpits, wait 30 minutes before applying.

How long will the jar of deodorant last?

This depends solely on how often you use it. If used once a day the jar can last approximately 3 months.

Do you have a glass jar recycling program?

Yes we do! Save your jars! Once you have gathered 3 jars bring them in to Markets By Dream Day in Bowmanville (62 King St. W) and get a $1.00 off your next deodorant purchase. Let them know at the cash that you have returned 3 deodorant jars.
