Bakuchiol product

I have a bakuchiol oil and am wanting to make a 1% solution with an organic Argan oil. 

For mixing I will just make sure the ratios are correct.

But how can I make sure that it is mixing evenly? Do I need a proper mixer? Maybe with a magnetic mixer? I'm wondering if it needs to be heated in order to mix uniformly. 

Thank you!!

    Bakuchiol is quite viscous, so your best bet is to mix it properly with a magnetic stirrer or overhead stirrer.  Heat is not necessary.

    Thank you so much! Would this take overnight mixing (1 day or more) and do you think this requires testing afterwards to make sure the ratio is correct?

    No, just mix it until it is uniform ... should take just a few minutes
