Grainy balms- Grainy balms are from the oils solidifying unevenly which create small lumps. This especially happens in warm climates when the balms melt a bit. This can be remedied by heating the balm over a double boiler. Scoop out balm into a glass or metal double boiler. Clean out jar. Melt balm until completely liquid. Pour liquid back into jar and place immediately in a refrigerator uncovered until the balm has solidified. I recommend doing this only once. Try to store your balms in a cool environment. If you live in a warm climate, you can store your balm in the refrigerator, covered. This is especially great as a cooling element for sunburnt skin.
Floating pieces in Sea Spray- If you see floating white flakes in your spray chances are it’s just the aloe vera that has come together. Shake bottle vigorously to break pieces up.
