WARM WEATHER SHIPPING ADVISORY
At Herbs for Ailment, we do not use synthetic stabilizers. As a result, our natural products can be sensitive to temperature changes.
Since melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery, please understand that we cannot be responsible for melted products.
We have the same problem as companies who make and ship fine chocolates during summer months!
WHAT TO DO ABOUT MELTING
On sunny or warm days, it is best to refrigerate BEFORE opening the jars or tins. If you open items, especially those in tins, to check if melting has occurred, they may spill out and make a mess!
The quality and healing properties of our products are not affected by melting.
Salve /Balms: Place it in the refrigerator. The melting will not affect the quality of the Salve/Balm.
Whipping adds tiny air bubbles (just like whipping cream) that increase the size, lighten the density and change the texture, making the butter light and fluffy. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles are collapsed, so the volume is decreased. So, although the jar was filled to the top, if the butter melts, there will be less volume in the container. The container may look half full.
We have had customers scoop out the butter and whip it back up with an electric whisk beater. The butter must be very cold for this to work.
During hot weather we do our best to protect our products from melting in transit.
We check every product before it is packed for shipping
We wrap our delicate products in bubble wrap to add another layer of insulation
As a result, most products shipped in warm weather arrive without melting. But please understand, there is no way that we can ship products to completely control for the high heat temperatures of summer, trucks and mailboxes.
WHY DOES THE MELTING PROBLEM EXIST?
One of our biggest challenges as a formulator of natural skin care products is controlling the effect of the outside temperature. There are times we create an excellent product during the cold winter only to discover the product is too soft in the summer.
Many commercial products contain phthalates to stabilize and maintain viscosity (thickness), cocamide DEA, MEA to thicken, stabilize and emulsify, petroleum-based oils and waxes to thicken and stabilize and other additives to ensure that their products maintain the same consistency through all temperature variations. Our natural products do not contain these or any other synthetic additives.
Our conditioners, whipped butters, and moisturizers are formulated to be a semi-soft solid at room temperature. When applied to our warm skin, they instantly melt, providing an emollient, nourishing and penetrating product.
I've noticed that the Calendula Save has caused my cuts and sores to heal much quicker than normal. I'm in my late 60's so my cuts/sores heal much slower than they used to when I was in my 20's. So any improvement in the time they take to heal is appreicated.
This salve works wonders for diaper rashes. My son had a diaper rash and I immediately started to apply the salve a d literally within that day i seen my son's rash healing. Reccomend!
