How To Make Herb Infused Oils

September 24th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Herb infused oils are wonderful for a massage and also can be used in your soap making process. They contain the best qualities of the herbs into a form that’s easily absorbed. You need to start in advance with them because they do take a while to make. But trust me, the end result is well worth the effort.

Some good herb choices are:

  • Calendula flowers
  • Comfrey
  • Chamomile
  • Lavender
  • Chickweed
  • Plantain

If you use two or more herbs, divide them into equal portions.

Here’s how to make the herb infused oil.

You’ll need 2 pints of extra-virgin olive oil and 6 oz of dried herbs.

  • Put the herbs into a stainless steel pot and pour in the olive oil.
  • Bring the mixture to 100 degrees over a medium heat.
  • Remove from heat source, cover and let steep.
  • Do this twice a day for 2 weeks –  morning and evening.
  • After 2 weeks, strain the oil through a fine mesh filter into a jar with a tight fitting lid.

The oil will keep indefinitely as long as you keep the jar sealed up tight.
