  • Now combine the two Phases with stirring.  If using a stick blender use repetitive short bursts.  Immediately you pour combine the Phases you will see the mixture become milky.

  • I like to use a mid sized Zip Lock bag to fill my containers, as it's less messy and keeps everything clean.  Cut the bottle corner off the bottom and pipe into the pump bottles pump bottle, Tottle or Malibu Tubes. If you like to have a thicker consistency, you will need to do this whilst it is still warm.
  • Label and seal bottles or tubes when completely cold.

    If using "add to trolley" there is no fragrance, essential oil or Citric Acid in the basket.  You need to select your preferred style of packaging too.  You need to purchase Distilled Water from the supermarket or hardware store.
