Then take a small sample with the spoon and place it on a plate. So you can better estimate the consistency of the mixture. If desired, you can add more of the oil or pastilles and stir again until a homogeneous mass is formed. Then let it cool down – except for hand warmth. Now it’s the turn of the essential oils. Add 2 drops of each variety and stir well again. Finished!
