Lavender Infused Oil Recipe Posted on 5 Dec 10:50 , 0 comments
The scent of lavender is delicate and calming. This is another once of my favorite herbs. It may be somewhat difficult to grow but this Lavender infused Oil recipe is easy to make.
If you enjoyed our Calendula Infused Oil recipe, I think you're going to enjoy this one!
It is important to mention that we use dried lavender flowers for this recipe. Fresh Lavender flowers have a higher water content.
While not as concentrated as pure essential oils, there are many wonderful ways to incorporate lavender-infused oil into your household and beauty recipes. I often add lavender oil to my calendula oil for a soothing foot cream and insect repellent.
DIY Lavender Infused Oil
large glass jar (quart-size ball jar)
fine mesh strainer or coffee filter
**strainer is much easier**
1 ounce Lavender flowers (dry)
2 cups olive oil/avocado oil/almond oil
You can use different oils such as coconut or jojoba oil but the above oils I mention are my favorites.
There are 2 ways to prepare:
#1 Place ingredients into a slow cooker for 3 to 6 hours.
#2 Place ingredients in a glass jar and place in a sunny windowsill for 6-8 weeks. This method requires more time but does not require a slow cooker
After your infusion is complete, strain out the oil from the flowers.
Pour infused oil into a clean, glass container. Our Lavender Oil Kit includes an able dropper bottle. Label each jar with ingredients and date.
Store infused oil out of direct sunlight. I prefer to store in a closed cabinet.
