Moon Valley Organics - Moon Melt Lotion Bar review and COUPON CODE!!

(via their website)
"In 1998 Moon Valley was conceived out of a passion to live ethically and sustainably.  Today that enthusiasm carries forth from our certified organic, biodynamic farm and embraces traditional knowledge from our family of artisan farmers, herbalists and beekeepers. Each element coming together to create amazing products made from the best things on Earth!

Our design, research, production, and sales teams are an assembly of strong local community organizers, artists, parents, entrepreneurs, activists, engineers, doctors, herbalists, and farmers dedicated to living in and creating a more sustainable, wholesome world.

Our products are developed with the intention to nourish and heal your body, mind, and spirit, as well as to care for the Earth. Kim Denend and Aaron Otto, creators of Moon Valley Organics, share their combined experiences in farming, healing, creativity/artistry, and activism to nurture a thriving business. Their quest for wholeness and well-being led them to develop their unique healing body care products. They recently collaborated with Dr. Daniel Newman, MD, ND, and DOM, and other licensed herbalists to formulate their newest medicinal salves. Daniel brings over 20 years of experience with internal medicine and pain management. He contributes his knowledge to formulating these unique blends of medicinal salves, which combine our favorite western herbs with traditional Chinese medicinals. The bulk of our ingredients are grown and processed in the Cascadia Bioregion, or meet high standards of integrity, quality and sustainability."

"Our Principles

 Our Moon Melt Bar is a decadent, lemon-vanilla scented moisturizer empowered by the natural healing and anti-inflammatory properties of Calendula and Comfrey to soothe and restore dry skin.  These are combined with our beeswax to naturally seal in moisture twice as long as water-based moisturizers and allow the curative herbs to work their wonders.

 Pure Ingredient

 Moon Valley Organic Calendula and Organic Comfrey infused Organic Safflower oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Vanilla Flavoring, Organic Lemon essential oil and Natural Vitamin E from sunflowers."


 " Hold the moon in your hands.  As it warms, breathe in deeply.  Melt bar into dry, chapped areas of skin, including cuticles-anywhere that needs soothing and protecting.

 Keep a tin next to the sink and enjoy this luxurious experience whenever your hands need some extra tending."

Wow, Moon Valley Organics is AMAZING. First I have to go into how much I love the packaging. Now, I don't usually care about packaging..I go straight to the product. But with the Moon Melt Lotion Bar I could not believe how beautifully detailed the packaging is, and I'm just starting with the box! (scroll down to the very last pic in this post for the inside of the box) The fact that this bar comes in its own beautiful tin,  yes its a tin (see below) seriously impressed me.  The beautiful amount of detail that Moon Valley Organics puts into their product just blew me away, especially when I read that "All of our packaging is BPA-free, 100% recyclable and made from the highest percentage of post-consumer recycled material available."

So, my thoughts on the lotion bar..... why hasn't this been done before!? Why do we pump goopy lotion out of bottles!? I mean sure, we have body butters in containers...but this is just different. For those who might have skipped the "use" section. This isn't soap, this isn't something you use with water.  This is lotion! You take the bar out of the tin, warm it in your hands a bit and sooth it into your skin. This lotion bar is absolutely wonderful! In fact, I have had a weird painful patch of dry skin on my thumb, for weeks now I have been trying any kind of lotion to sooth it. Then, I tried this Moon Melt lotion bar and the pain stopped immediately and the dry skin is finally starting to heal.  The lotion bar has a very delicate vanilla scent and it does leave your hands a little greasy I have learned to use this at night before I go to sleep. I wake up with soft smooth hands, legs..elbows every time.
