Procedure
Place butters and oil (phase A) into main vessel. Heat contents to approximately 70°C while mixing. Add phase B to the batch and make sure mixture is homogenous, then immediately cool to obtain best results. Do not expose fragrance to a prolonged period of heating. Cooling rate should be rapid (preferably using a heat exchanger to obtain the smoothest body butter balm). Fill product into jars or tins and immediately place into a cool room for 24 hours.

Properties
Body balm formulas differ in feel and hardness. Variation in consistency may be achieved by changing the ratio of butters to oil to stearic acid.
