What are the Best Practices for a longer shelf life?
This product may melt in extreme heat, 90+ degree temperature. We recommend refrigeration before use during very hot summer months if you do not use air conditioning. In addition, sometimes if an all natural product is placed in two different extreme environments (hot or cold) causing it to melt then harden again, the fatty acids and/or flower wax component may harden faster than the rest of the contents creating a grainy-like texture. To fix this try running hot water over the jar or carefully melt to liquify contents, cool and place in the refrigerator. The butter will return to its original smooth buttery texture.
We advise against using blends with Musk fragrance and Cinnamon essential oil during pregnancy and breastfeeding. These include our Chateau, Precious Sudan, Unity Code and White Silke blends.
Our Almost Unscented and Lavender Cami blends are great for expecting mothers, little ones and those sensitive to fragrance.
Butter By Keba creates fragrant blends using the technique of a perfumer from an aromatherapeutic perspective. While we hold certification in aromatherapy we are not medical practitioners nor prescribe our blends for medical purposes. We advise seeking the consultation of a medical professional for any medical issue you may be experiencing.
