Xanthan Gum, unlike other gums,  is very stable under a wide temperatures and pH range.  This Xanthan gum has been manufactured for improved dispersion in room temperature water. However it can benefit your formulation mixing times to mix it with glycerin or propylene glycol prior to adding it into water.  Once the xanthan gum is fully hydrated the resulting solution can be heated if necessary for the inclusion of other ingredients

The viscosity of xanthan gum solutions decreases with higher shear rates; this rheology is called pseudoplasticity. This means that a product subjected to shear, whether from mixing or shaking, the solution will thin out, but once the shear forces are removed, the product will thicken back up.

In practice this means that Xanthan gum makes a product thick enough at rest in the bottle to keep the mixture fairly homogeneous, but the shear forces generated by shaking thins it so it can be easily poured. When it exits the bottle, the shear forces are removed and it thickens back up.
