  • Melt stage 1 ingredients together in a double boiler and heat to 75°C or above
  • Make a slurry with the Glycerin and Xanthan Gum. Place a beaker in a bain-marie and pour on boiling bottled spring water. Stir together then stick blend to form smooth thickened water.
  • When Stages 1 & 2 are at approximately the same temperature, pour Stage 1 into Stage 2 and stir together.
  • While the mixture is still in the bain-marie stick blend for 30 seconds, leave for 1 minute then stick blend for another 30 seconds.
  • Remove the beaker from the bain-marie and put into a pan of cold water. Stir with a spatula until the emulsion reaches 40°C or below
  • Add Stage 3 and stir in well, jar and label.
