Rose Water Ointment
» Prepare Rose Water Ointment as follows:
Reduce the cetyl esters wax and the white wax to small pieces, melt them on a steam bath, add the almond oil, and continue heating until the temperature of the mixture reaches 70. Dissolve the sodium borate in the purified water and the stronger rose water, warmed to 70, and gradually add the warm aqueous phase to the melted oil phase, stirring rapidly and continuously until it has cooled to about 45. Then incorporate the rose oil.
noteRose Water Ointment is free from rancidity. If the Ointment has been chilled, warm it slightly before attempting to incorporate other ingredients (see Ointments and Suppositories in the section Added Substances under Ingredients and Processes in the General Notices).
