MY NOTES:

#I DO NOT use the microwave to heat anything. I have never been able to get anything to emulsify by using my microwave. Not sure why it doesn’t work for me, but it doesn’t. Just set up your makeshift double boilers (glass bowls over 2 different pots of water) and use that method

# I use a powdered preservative (Neodefend) that isn’t too heat sensitive so I add it to the water phase before heating
