Micro batch, or small-scale production, differs greatly from large-scale manufacturing. Everything created by Blue Fox Botanicals is handmade from nature and uses fresh plant ingredients. Micro batch production ensures freshness, quality control, and the integrity of each recipe. When products are handmade as opposed to mass produced, more attention to detail, love, and care can be focused into each and every individual container!
The typical shelf life for products is one to two years, depending on the ingredients used and the type of blend. Medicinal compounds begin to lose their potency over periods of time, and a maximum potency date is included on the container label. Direct exposure to sunlight, excessive heat, or water can decrease the longevity of your salve, butter, or balm. Some melting is normal, and can occur in heat that exceeds room temperature, but the blend will harden again once in a cooler location. You can also refrigerate your blend to help it reharden. It is recommended that you keep your herbal blends in cool, dry places when possible.
Yes to both!
