Butters and Salves
If the body butter you purchased contains essential oils, do not add more. We use recommended safe amounts of essential oils to our products, and adding more could cause harm to your beautiful skin and body.
If you love using your own essential oi blends, purchase the Pure Body Butter. It’s unscented, making it the perfect base for adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Just temper (instructions here) and add your favorite essential oil while whipping.
Some herbal salves are intended to be applied lightly, while others are best when applied liberally and massaged in to allow the herbal components to nourish deep down.
All salves are composed of herbs and should be used with respect. Do not apply hot herbs (such as cayenne) to open wounds, and do not use any salve which contains an allergen.
Herbal salves should be stored in a cool environment (leaving them in a hot car is not recommended) to extend their potency, consistency, and shelf life.
Products labeled with a temperature-sensitive notice are designed with ingredients that melt around body temperature. Especially in the summer months or in hot climates, these products can change in texture and consistency while in transit.
- To protect your natural products in the early spring, through summer and late fall, select “Temperature Sensitive Shipping” at checkout. Your order will ship in our 100% compostable padded shipping insert.
- If temperature-sensitive products arrive melted, we won’t be able to replace or refund them.
- Once temperature-sensitive products arrive, keep in a cool spot away from direct sunlight.
For Body Butters and Salves:
If melting does happen, you can simply pop the product into the fridge to solidify and it will still be usable (though may not look as pretty!). In fact, we highly recommend that you put your products into the refrigerator or freezer prior to opening. This will help ensure that your products are solid, and will avoid spilling the melted product upon opening.
If your product was whipped, see our how to restore whipped body butter post.
Body butter is a great way to lock in moisture for your entire body. We have customers who use it every day on hair, face, and all the way to their toes! Simply scoop out a small amount of the butter, warm in your hands, and apply.
- Use it after your shower and you just might find that you do not need to reapply throughout the day, as you would with a typical lotion.
- Apply a pea sized amount of body butter to ends of your hair for a super intense conditioner.
- Body butter is a wonderful moisturizer for your face but only use a tiny dab.
- Rub an ample amount on dry feet, cover with socks and wake up with supple moisturized toes.
A salve (also called a balm, ointment, or cream) is an infusion of natural oils with herbs, waxes, and butters. Used for topical application, salves provide a way to soothe, protect, and nourish your skin with the power of nature.
Depending on the formula, natural salves and ointments can be used externally for:
- dry skin
- skin rashes
- insect bites
- sore muscles
- soothing chapped or irritated skin
- minor cuts
- chest congestion
- minor burns
- stress relief, and more.
All of our herbal salves are 100% natural, and organic ingredients are used where available. Our herbal salves are:
- petroleum free
- preservative free
- parabens free
- alcohol free
- synthetic free
We jar our body butter when it’s whipped, silky, and smooth. But, if your jar was left in the car on a hot day, it could have melted and developed a grainy texture. The good news is that it’s perfectly safe to use and won’t affect the performance of the body butter.
The graininess (or butter bumps) are a result of different fatty acids cooling down at different temperatures. If you want to restore the wonderful whipped texture you can re-whip your body butter. This post explains how to restore your body butter to its silky smooth whipped state.
