Q: Help! I melted my butter! What do I do? Is it ruined?
A: Great Mother's Goods Butters are designed to melt at body temperature. This enhances their ability to be applied evenly to the skin as well as with absorption into the skin. It is possible that your Butter will melt in the jar during the summer months as a result of high temperatures in some parts of the world, or you might leave it in the car, etc. You can easily solidify your Butter by reducing its temperature. This can be accomplished with a refrigerator or air conditioning. It is suggested you periodically shake the melted Butter or stir during this resolidification process. The color will be a darker greenish shade as a result of complete melting. This is normal and does not affect the product.
