I love using scented and flavored infused oils in beauty products, health products, and in the kitchen. Today, I thought that I would share with you how simple it is to make your own infused oils right from the garden. There are many processes and techniques out there, from distillation to vodka. However, I prefer to use an excellent quality extra virgin olive oil for the process.
It begins by harvesting herbs, flowers, and fruits early in the morning, when their moisture and oil content is at their peak. I then dry them, preferring to use them dried versus fresh. Using fresh harvests can put you at risk for harmful bacteria and mold in your finished product.
