  • Heat the Stage 1 in a stainless steel bowl on a double boiler until the temperature is above 75°C.
  • When Stage 1 is at temperature, add the Stage 2 ingredients into a larger stainless steel bowl or beaker.
  • Pour Stage 1 into Stage 2 and use a stick blender to emulsify the two stages. This will happen in just a few seconds so keep checking. Ensure the temperature is above 75°C. When you lift the stick blender out of the mixture, the mix running off the blender head should look like a thin cream. If it looks granular or like it is separating, it needs more high-shear blending.
  • When it has emulsified, take it out of the double boiler and use a spatula to stir it whilst it is cooling down. You can use a cold water bath to speed up the cooling. Do not continue to use the stick blender as this will destroy the liquid crystal structure that the emulsification has formed.
  • When it is under 40°C, dissolve the Vitamin B3 in the Comfrey Glycerol Extract, then add the remaining Stage 3 ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.
