Method:
  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a stainless steel bowl and place into a saucepan of boiling
    water (double boiler/bain marie). Bring up to a temperature of over 75°C.
  • When Stage 1 is over 75°C, add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients to a larger stainless steel bowl.
    Swap the bowls over so the larger bowl is in the double boiler.
  • Pour the Stage 1 ingredients into the Stage 2 and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Ensure the temperature stays above 75°C and stir continually for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the bowl from the double boiler and put into a pan of cold water to cool it down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the lotion is under 40°C add the remaining Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine
    thoroughly, jar and label.
