Place your tallow balm in a cool spot, away from direct sunlight.

We refrain from whipping our balm products or incorporating water into them.

Whipping introduces air and bacteria, potentially misleading consumers with inflated volume.

Picture a whipped product left on a shelf during summer—it would likely melt, leaving only half the product in the jar.

Instead, we meticulously hand-pour our tallow to preserve its full benefits. We consider whipping an amateur technique employed to conceal the scent of inadequately rendered tallow.

Our commitment lies in revealing the authentic essence of our fresh suet tallow through careful hand-pouring.

Achieve your preferred texture by immersing the closed container in warm water. Once melted, remove the lid and let it cool in the refrigerator.

This will ensure your balm remains soft and easy to spread. Remember, tallow behaves like many natural fats – solidifying in cold conditions and becoming soft in warmer temperatures. The balm's consistency can vary with temperature changes, especially during winter.

For handcrafted soaps like ours, a raised soap dish works best. Ensure it dries between uses to prolong its life.

Although our tallow is of exceptional quality and has a long shelf life, it's ideal to use our products while they are fresh.

For best results, we suggest using them within nine months. Our formulations are rich in active ingredients, which is why we employ a food-grade preservative system to ensure their potency remains intact for up to nine months after opening.

We advise using our products within 8-12 weeks of opening, as this is when they are most effective.

Absolutely! Tallow is beneficial for most skin types, even sensitive ones like facial skin.

Its composition closely resembles human skin, making it easily absorbable. Rich in essential vitamins such as A, D, K, E, and B12, organic tallow, especially from pasture-raised cattle, works wonders on skin issues like eczema and diaper rashes.

Consider it a healthier substitute for mainstream synthetic creams.

Before using our products, we strongly advise seeking medical attention or consulting with an allergist, especially if you have known allergies or sensitive skin.

It is essential to conduct patch tests on small, inconspicuous areas of the body before applying products to larger areas or the face. This precautionary measure helps to minimize the risk of adverse reactions.

We care about your well-being and want to ensure your safety and satisfaction with our products.

Our tallow-beeswax candles are distinct from regular candles in terms of ingredients and their gentle, prolonged burn. Referred to as 'living candles', wick-trimming is optional based on your preference. For safety, always refer to the warning sticker on the candle's bottom.

We pride ourselves on using Eco wicks, which are not only made from cotton sourced locally from the West Coast but also burn cleanly without any lead.

Before lighting up, ensure your tallow candle burns for about 4 hours, forming a uniform tallow wax pool. Trim the wick as and when necessary and never leave a lit candle unattended.
