Heads up! Since our Salve is crafted with natural, organic ingredients (such as coconut oil), when you first begin using this product, parts of the salve may “flake”. Do not be concerned, this is completely fine and is to be expected when working with coconut oil. To help prevent this, slightly heat up the salve before use. You can achieve this by holding the salve in front of a heater for around 30 seconds. Doing so will make applying the salve smoother and easier.
