Heat all ingredients in the OIL PHASE in a pot until melted (Do not overheat/boil).  To be safe a double boiler is recommended

In a separate vessel, heat the water in the WATER PHASE until just boiling. Double boiler is not required

Mix heated WATER PHASE and heated OIL PHASE together with a hand mixer or stick blender.  Blend for about two minutes to ensure that both phases have thoroughly emulsified.

Please do not mix by hand, no matter how novel that sounds. Stick blenders are required for stability and particle distribution meaning less breaking down of your product.  

Begin the FINAL PHASE by adding the 2 cups of distilled water room temperature or cold water.
Next, add the remaining ingredients and blend well.
Pour into your containers.  Make sure it has totally cooled down before putting the caps on.
Shelf life with preservative – 12 to 16  months
