   Formulation procedure:
Stage A           In a beaker, heat all components to around 70C, stirring continuously to ensure that the emulsifier and butter melt properly.
Stage BDisperse xanthan in glycerine so that the xanthan is fully dissolved in the glycerine.
 Add hydrosol and heat the water phase to around 70C. Slowly pour the water phase into the beaker containing the oil phase and whisk/stir rhythmically until the emulsion has formed (One-Pot-Method is also possible).
Stage CAt the cool-down stage, add all components of Stage C to the emulsion and blend until homogeneity. Measure the pH of the emulsion and adjust if required (must be lower than 5.4). Transfer to a jar or dispenser, leave to cool down and only then close the lid in order to avoid condensation.

Some comments:

Shelf-life of the cream is about three months.

Oils can be replaced with other heat stable oils.

Hydrosol can be replaced with any other available hydrosols or distilled water.

Essential oil can be replaced with any of your favourite fragrances or left out (in this case, do not forget to adjust your oil phase up to 100% of the final product).
