I don’t know how this formula works. Carbomer is a thickener–not an emulsifier? How does this not separate when all of these oils are added?

Will I need to add more preservative after adding additional ingredients to the base Lavender Gel?

Hi Sandy,

You will most likely need to add more preservative, especially if the ingredients you add contain water.
