WHAT IS A DOUBLE BOILER?
I am going to ask your pardon before I start this topic because it may be
considered by many of us as irrelevant. But I assure you that this is a
question I get asked a lot, so I thought let's just tackle the elephant in the
room so we can move to more important topics.
The Double boiler referred to in many Skincare Recipe is not an excuse to whip out
your purse and start looking for a sophisticated equipment, do use the
money for something else; like giving it to me, LOL.
Seriously there is no mystery to Double Boilers, it is just for you to get 2 saucepans,
preferably one bigger than the other.
I particularly like when the smaller can sit in the bigger without leaving any space
( just that the steam escaping don't get into my melted butters) Easy, isn't it?
Double Boilers are necessary when we need to melt or mix our natural ingredients without
loosing nutrients. Most Natural Skincare Ingredients loose their benefits
when exposed directly to heat.
Let me know if this short write-up explain what a Double Boiler is to you.
