Heat the fat stage to above 75°C in a double boiler. Then add stage 1 (fat stage) to stage 2 (water stage). Blend with a stick blender for a few seconds until you see emulsification has happened. Then immerse the container into a pan of cold water and stir with a spatula whilst cooling down to below 40°C. Add remaining stage 3 ingredients and combine thoroughly. Jar and label.

Mix the balm until it has cooled to approximately 40-50°C. Stir in the remaining heat sensitive ingredients like tinctures, macerated oils or essential oils. Pour into jars and leave to cool before sealing and labelling.
