Simple Herbal Infusion

Now that the gardens are in full bloom here
are two methods for making infused oils.

1. Put the flowers or herbs of your choice
in a large pan with a lid. Add half their
volume of a good quality odorless vegetable oil.
Heat the pan with the lid on to 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
At this temperature the cells containing the odoriferous
molecules burst and these are taken up by the oil.
Strain and then bottle the oil.
These infused oils can be used on their own as
a massage or bath oil or as a base for another product.

2.pack a jar tightly with your flowers or herbs.
Cover with vegetable oil. Seal jar tightly and put
outside in the sun for a few weeks bringing it in
at night. Strain and bottle the oil.
