Hi Ladies,

I'm hoping to get some help here. Whenever I make my olive oil lotion it separates. Here's my recipe....

Lotion recipe

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup water

4 tsp emulsifying wax

I melt the oil and wax together then heat the water and pour in the melted oil as I stir.

Let it cool slightly then mix with my hand mixer. It comes out really creamy and smooth. But doesn't stay that way .

A few days later oil and water has separated and I have to shake the container before each use.

What am I doing wrong? Do I need more emulsifying wax? Help! Thanks :-)
