A note about natural products and temperature:
Our organic ingredients—shea butter in particular—are very sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. If your balm melts during shipping, simply place it in the fridge or freezer for a short time until it cools and solidifies again. If there is graininess or separation in your balm at any point, the balm has not gone bad; it is just a result of temperature changes! We process our ingredients as little as possible, and therefore our products may not look like mass produced items. When you apply the balm, it will naturally warm up from your body temperature and be absorbed. If you prefer a smoother texture, however, you can remove the cap from your jar and microwave it for 10 seconds at a time (or place it in a pot of hot water) to melt the balm, then put it in the fridge or freezer to solidify. (This may cause some evaporation of essential oils.) Ordinarily, refrigeration is not necessary, but you can store your balm in the fridge to keep the structure of the ingredients more stable if you would like! Our products will be at their best quality if used within 30-60 days.
Why use topical magnesium balm?
- When magnesium is applied transdermally, it is absorbed directly into cells so that magnesium levels in the body increase more rapidly.
- Because the magnesium does not go through the digestive system, topical use avoids the laxative effects of oral magnesium supplements.
- Magnesium oil can be drying, but the cocoa and shea butters, coconut oil, and sunflower oil in our magnesium balm hydrate the skin.
- The addition of organic lavender oil eases anxiety, promotes relaxation, and helps with sleep.
