Balance Hand & Body Lotion 8 oz.


You know the sensation of weathered skin?  When you look at your legs and see little cracks on your shin skin? When there is white, dead skin powder covering your arms?  When folding laundry in your hands is like nails on a chalk board?  When having your lover touch your body makes your skin even more irritated?...

We’ve been there.

This is dry skin hell.

We believe that in order to escape this dermatological desert, you must nourish your skin on a deep level with nutrient rich oils and potent botanicals.

Your skin is your body's largest organ, and taking care of it is essential.

When your skin is dry, you need a genuine solution, and we've created it. We’ve done our research and have years of experience working with these oils and botanicals to provide you with the best of the best.

Our signature Dragontree lotions have essential fats that alleviate dryness, restorative emollients that relieve irritation and reduce the signs of aging, protective plant and bee ingredients that intensely rejuvenate the skin, and soothing herb extracts that help with irritation and discomfort.

Some of our ingredients are just too good to not explain further.

  • Tamanu oil -This rich skin-healing oil is from a tropical nut and it restores skin that has been damaged by sun, wind, and dryness. It’s been scientifically shown to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, heal burns and wounds, soothe and heal insect bites, cure athlete’s foot, and mend chapped lips.
  • Rose Hip Seed oil – This skin restorative comes from the seeds of rose fruits grown in Chile.  We love it because it soaks into the skin easily, and does not leave a greasy residue. It’s a wonderful hydrator, and penetrates dry or damaged skin immediately.
  • Reishi mushroom- This legendary mushroom has amazing immune enhancing and anti-cancer properties. It also soothes irritated skin, and promotes the healing of damaged skin.
  • Acai-This small purple fruit is extremely rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, helping to eliminate free radicals (which age the skin). This is beneficial for all the oxidative damage of skin from sun, pollution, chemicals, smoke, etc. It is also soothes and nourishes irritated skin, and reduces age spots.

    Balance is a lovely scent for the Hand and Body Lotion

    It’s a very light lotion, absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy. The Balance scent is very unique. It is definitely vanilla and cardamom but you won’t smell like a cookie! Like everything dragontree, it supports your feeling of comfort and wellbeing.

    Balance hand and body lotion

    Vanilla, and cardamom are two of my favorite scents, so naturally, I am really loving this lotion. And I like how soft my hands feel after only a few minutes of applying. Thank you for coming up with such a lovely, and beneficial product!

    Balance Lotion & Boulder Spa

    Balance Hand & Body Lotion – A warm blend of vanilla, black pepper & cardamom I absolutely loved this product! As a lotion devotee, who has spent many years searching high & low, near & far, for the perfect lotions, this one fits the bill. Also, if you like earthy vanilla scents, this lotion is for you. I had the pleasure of visiting the DragonTree Spa in Boulder, Colorado a couple days ago with my boyfriend, & the experience is beyond my wildest expectations. The front desk staff & the masseuses were wellness wizards. The ambiance very calm & relaxing. I would go back in a heartbeat & highly recommend it. Alas, my only remembrance, other than good advice for stretching, hydrating, & enjoying chocolate from time to time, while away will have to be their lovely balance lotion. :) Gratitude & Blessings ~Amye
