Thank you to Barb from Miller’s Homemade Soaps for this awesome suggestion to fix divots in lip balm:
You can fix holes in your balms by waiting until the holds appear and then waving a heat gun set on low over them. The heat gun will remelt the top of the balm. I usually add a little more balm and then let them cool again. Works great for lip balms and solid lotion bars!

Thanks for sharing Barb!

Yup I use the same method for many things, smoothing out the tops of balms, smoothing out candles, smoothing out lip balms, etc.

I tried your idea today when making orange creamsicle butter bars (lotion bars). I let it cool way down before pouring and guess what? No holes! I was thrilled.
