How do I stop my lip balm from being grainy?
While it seems it is not possible to prevent graininess, I have found the fix the problem if it occurs. Remove the cap from the lip balm and put the tube in a microwave standing up and gently re-melt the lip balm in 15-second increments until it is liquid (melted).
Why does my lip balm go grainy?
As the butter is exposed to temperature fluctuations, some of the fats melt and then re-crystallize at different rates which results in a sandy texture. This happens when balm is exposed to extreme temperature changes (like in your car or directly exposed to the elements).

Why does my coconut oil feel gritty?
As the days are warming up you will notice that your coconut oil is melting and sometimes becomes grainy in texture. The reason for this is because coconut oil is made up of different fatty acids which have different melt points.
Why is my homemade lotion gritty?
Temperature variation during shipping is usually the #1 cause of a grainy texture in butters and balms. During hotter months, butters and balms can partially melt and then cool down too slowly, creating the perfect conditions for that grainy, gritty feeling.
How do you keep honey from separating in lip balm?
Place the bowl, with the coconut oil mixture inside, in the larger bowl (the one with cold water inside). This is meant to rapidly cool the mixture so the honey may be added without it separating from the other ingredients. The rapid cooling will also prevent a gritty lip balm, which can happen to shea butter.
