700gm distilled water   
            Phase 2

100gm sweet almond oil        
50gm grapeseed oil

50gm BTMS25 conditioning emulsifier

             Phase 3
10gm essential oil (I used lavender but you choose what you like)

  1. Ensure all equipment, benches and packaging is clean and germ free.
  2. Weigh out phase 1 (water) into a saucepan.
  3. Weigh out phase 2 into another heat safe container for double boiler or low direct heat
  4. Heat both phases to 70-75ºC– remove from heat.
  5. Combine phases 1 & 2 and emulsify with a stick blender for about 5 minutes.  Allow to stand for 10 minutes and blend again.  Allow to cool to 40ºC
