    8 oz Basic Conditioner

    6.7 oz water
    0.4 oz glycerin (optional, if not adding, then add this much more water)
    0.8 oz BTMS
    0.08 oz fragrance
    0.5 -1% by volume of preservative --follow instructions on your preservative. I do not recommend making any conditioner without using a preservative

    Mix water and glycerin and heat to 175F. Melt BTMS in microwave to 175F then slowly add to water mix. Continue stirring until 65F. Add fragrance and preservative.

    I use optiphen but it is pricey. The most common preservative in cosmetics is liquid germall plus it is very cost effective and you only need maximum of 0.5% by volume.
