How to Make Your Own Oil

Needed:

  • Mineral Oil
  • Fresh or dried herbs/flowers
  • Jar (any size you want) with a tight fitting lid

Place mineral oil and herbs in jar, place lid on tightly.

Store it in a dark cool area.

Once a week for two weeks, shake the jar.

On the third week, strain the herbs out using cheesecloth or a coffee filter.

At this time add more herbs and oil (if needed) and follow the same procedure for another two weeks.

Smell the oil as you go along to determine the strength of the scent you want.

When you have achieved the scent, strain the herbs out again, and store the oil in a dark cool area.

This process may take awhile, but if you can't afford your own oils, it is definitely worth the wait. Oils are very expensive!
