Method:
  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a small stainless steel bowl and place into a saucepan of boiling water (double boiler/bain marie). Bring up to a temperature above 75°C.
  • When the Stage 1 is above 75°C, weigh and add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients together in a separate larger stainless steel bowl. Swap the bowls over so that the larger bowl is in the double boiler.
  • Pour the Stage 1 ingredients into the larger bowl (Stage 2) and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Make sure the temperature stays above 75°C and continue to stir for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the bowl from the double boiler and put it into a pan of cold water to cool down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the cream or lotion is under 40°C, add the remaining Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label. This cream can appear quite runny when it's just made, but it will thicken up overnight.

Thanks you very much for this it’s very helpful, but where can I get that whisker and those containers with handles to use as double boilers which you used. They are amazing. Thank you.
