Making an Infused Oil Recipe

Instructions:

Place 4 oz of dried herbs in a pan and cover with the desired vegetable oil (olive, sunflower, grapeseed and safflower work well). Simmer the oil for 2 hours over steam or in a double boiler. Remove the oil from the heat and strain the oil through a fine cheesecloth. Place another 4 oz of dried herb in the pan and cover with the strained oil (add a little bit more if necessary to cover the herbs). Simmer the oil for another 2 hours over steam. Strain the oil again and add about 5% T 50 when cooled. Store in an amber glass bottle. Use this infused oil in creams, lotions, balms, salves, massage blends, bath oils, lip balm, soap etc. Infused oils of calendula, chamomile, comfrey root, marshmallow root, lavender, St. John's Wort and nettle are especially useful for skin care formulations for dry skin conditions.

"I just want to take this opportunity to let you know how much I value the service and support I get from you and your company. As a VERY small and NEW home business owner, I have had to wade through some very unsatisfying company experiences and play trial and error with who delivers the best service and the best prices for my budget. Yours is a keeper! Thank you very much."
