Infused oil recipe:
Dry herbs in a dehydrator or in a cool dry place.
Grind herbs with a mortar and pestle or in a grinder. You need as much surface area as possible to come into contact with the oil.
Fill a jar half full with the ground herbs. Fill to the brim with the oil of your choice. (I normally use olive oil for salves and almond oil for cosmetic creams). Allow for air pockets to bubble up. Continue to fill with oil until saturated.
Place the oil in a sunny window for 6-8 weeks to macerate or place in a bread maker on low heat overnight.
Your oil is now ready to be made into a salve, cream or placed directly on your skin.
My Herbarium is a place for finding the natural path to healing and wellness. Being connected to nature replenishes our spirit and we can find what we need to support our bodies’ curative systems even in our own gardens. I am a student of nature. The treasure that surrounds us amazes me every day.
