~2 cups oil of choice (olive, coconut, sesame, almond, avocado, etc.)Jojoba oil and Olive oil are wise choices because they have a long shelf life and are suitable for a variety of applications.
~2 cups herbs that have an affinity for the skin (rose petals, hops, chamomile, lavender and plantain or any other yummy combination.) fresh or dried.
~Fill jar with herbs and cover with oil until there is at least an inch of oil at top. The herbs will expand and soak up oil. If the herbs have soaked up all of the oil after a couple days, add a bit more.
~Cap jar and place on a sunny windowsill for 4-6 weeks or in a crock pot on LOW for 24 hours.
~Strain oil in a cheese cloth and pour into a dark glass bottle.
~Add 6-8 drops of essential oil per oz if desired. My favorite blend is Sandalwood, Lavender, Cedarwood, Cypress, Fir Needle, sweet Marjoram, and Sage.<3
