What to do in case the balm melted ?
First rest assured, it is in no way ruined or less efficient. A change in texture does not affect the product performance. Now that you are reassured...
To restore it to the texture you love:
- if it is still liquid, place the whole jar in the freezer for 30 minutes. Et voilà!
- if it solidified again at room temperature leaving white grains (see note below *) and you prefer the original texture, place the closed jar in water-bath of low simmering water to allow the balm to melt slowly (do not heat to a boil, and do not allow water to get into the jar). Then place the slightly cooled jar and melted balm in the freezer for 30 minutes. Et voilà (again)!
* note on white grains forming in the balms: they are simply solid lipids. They melt at the touch and heat of your skin, and there is absolutely nothing wrong or bad with them. It doesn't affect the balm performance.
