Take a double boiler and add half cup water to its base.
Set the double boiler on the stove and heat it on medium high heat.
Once it is hot enough, pour emulsifying wax and oil in the top part of the double boiler and allow the wax to melt, stirring occasionally.
Once the wax has melted completely, mix it thoroughly into the oil.
In a small sized cooking pot, heat two cups of distilled water to boiling. When the water starts boiling, measure exactly 1 ¼ cup and pour it into a small mixing bowl.
Gradually stir the oil and wax mixture into hot water, using a wooden spoon.
Keep on stirring the concoction until all the ingredients are completely combined, which will take about two to three minutes.
At this stage, the water and wax mixture will be quite thin. Allow it to cool, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes.
Once the emulsion has cooled completely, pour it into a clean container with an airtight lid. Small squeeze bottles are the best to store lotions, while small squat jars are best for cream-like emulsions.
