Hi Hamidah! Are you using refined or unrefined shea butter? Unrefined shea butter may have sediment in it which would make the balm grainy. You may also want to ensure your butters and waxes are fully melted and that the balm cools evenly – the best way to do so would be by cooling it in the fridge.

Hi! My balm turns grainy and i guess it must be the shea butter. Is there an alternative to this or how to make our balms without it turning grainy?
Thanks! :)

Hi Allesha! Soy wax is natural and works very well with essential oils. You can also try using carnauba wax or candelilla wax.

Why soy wax? And what could I use instead? Thank you.
