Water, do I need a preservative?

I'm using a small amount of water to dissolve some solids and incoperate into a balm. The water makes 3.95% of the entire formula. The rest of the ingredients are oils and wax. 
1. Do I need a preservative?
2. Will the water turn the product rancid fast? Do I need  to add something to stall that? if yes, what?
