Herbal How To: Chamomile-Infused Almond Oil

How to make Chamomile Infused Almond Oil:

1. You need chamomile flowers, a jar and some freshly pressed almond oil (this oil comes from my friend Alex in Ukraine)
2. Grind the flowers up (I used my juicer)
3. Fill the jar up halfway with plant material
4. Add the almond oil, filling the jar
5. Shake it
6. Label it
7. Let sit on a sunny windowsill for 6 weeks, shake it often
I use this oil in my Chamomile Face Cream.

  1. Face cream? We just use chamomile for tea. It is getting to be a weed here, but is a polite weed. My neighbors use it to, but I do not know what else it is used for. Now I must ask.

    • It’s super soothing and anti-inflammatory. It is excellent for skin irritation, reducing redness, stopping itchy rashes and tonifying as an astringent. But, as powerful as it is, it’s really gentle.

      • That is probably why I have not heard of it. I have very good skin. My neighbor does happen to like goodies like that though, and uses other herbs cosmetically.

  2. Lucky you, with such good skin! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Tell your neighbour that I can recommend some herbs for her for her skin that she can get there. I’d be happy to help.
