Apply in small pea-sized amount, dots along limbs and then gently massage in long circular movements. As this is a 100% natural product with no preservatives, do ensure you use clean, dry fingers or cosmetic spatula. Unlike lotion, body butter is thicker and richer, so a little goes a long way.
The best time to use any moisturiser is right out of the shower after you’ve mostly troweled off. Soaps can strip your skin of its natural protectants and the hot water opens your pores making it a perfect time to apply your moisturisers. Besides that, kind of any time you feel dry, you can use our body butter.
We do not recommend using any products with pure essential oils in children and infants under age 6, during pregnancy and for those with hypersensitive/diseased/damaged skin, including WAKE UP AND DREAM BIG body butter.
Our delicate natural body butter, packaged in eco-friendly metal tins are sensitive to temperature changes. It may soften or even melt in transit as they sit in warm courier trucks or mail boxes during shipping. Since melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery, please understand that we cannot be responsible for melted products.
What to do when it has melted:
On sunny or warm days it is best to refrigerate BEFORE opening the jars or tins. If you open items, please check if melting has occurred, they may spill out and make a mess!
The melting will not affect the quality of the whipped butter as a great moisturiser, but the whipped consistency will change. It will become more like a body balm and the container may actually look half full.
