- warm up the oils either on the stove or microwave, not too hot.
- add the waxes so they will melt into the oils.
- when those are blended with no wax lumps,
- slowly start adding the warmed water.
You will want the water to be approximately the same degree as the oil/wax blend. If the water is too cool, it will cause your lotion to start setting, which isn't the end of your lotion, just heat up the water a little more.
Using a wisk is far better than a fork or spoon, but in the beginning, I used a spoon and the lotion was fine.
