What are the best Moon Valley Organics products for after sun care?

Sunburn Relief:

What is crystalized honey and how do I make it smooth again?

We like to think of crystallization as a sign of high-quality honey! Crystallization is a common occurrence when the honey is raw and has not been filtered through charcoal (which would remove pollen and other natural goodies). 

Honey is a supersaturated solution that contains a great deal more sugar than water – over 70% sugar to often less than 20% water. Crystallization happens when the glucose in your honey spontaneously precipitates out of the supersaturated solution and loses water, transforming the glucose into glucose monohydrate (the tiny crystals/granules). Keeping your honey in temperatures below 50 degrees F will help prevent crystallization.

If you wish to de-crystalize your honey, I would recommend boiling water and then removing it from the source of heat, adding your jar and allowing it to cool to room temperature. This process may be repeated until the honey has returned to its original liquid state. You can also enjoy the honey while crystalized; crystalized honey makes an excellent spread on your favorite toast!
