Hi everyone,

It looks like I may have missed this forum at its prime but I'm hoping that someone is still lurking that can help.

I'm attempting to work with Gum Arabic in a wax and am having a hell of a time. I don't know how folks are getting it to blend. When I melt my ingredients together then my wax and combine the two I end up with the Gum Arabic sitting at the bottom of the molten wax and no amount of mixing will blend them (like oil and water)

If anybody can give some advice on blending these ingredients I would appreciate it! I've tried multiple times with no luck.

Thanks kindly

i have not tried making my own but it may be there everything is being heated too much. i had read that if it is getting to hot to hold the dish you are heating it too much.

Heat it only a little. You are probably heating it too much.

Thanks guys. So, if I understand correctly. . .heat the beeswax JUST until it melts (like Tylehman said, if I can't hold the bowl, it's too hot) and do the same with the gum arabic and shea butter. . .then blend and it should be good? Interesting that too much heat stops it from blending. I will definitely give this a try though and see how it goes.
