Making Herbal Infusions and Extracts
Water-Based Herbal Infusions:
To make an oil-based herbal infusion, it is best to use a double boiler or crock pot with a low heat setting. It is crucial that you do not overheat the oil. Add 2 ounces of Sunflower Seed Oil, Olive Oil, or other desired vegetable oil and 1/2 - 2/3 ounce dried herbs (if using fresh herbs, double the amount used) to your double boiler or crock pot and stir well. Use the lowest heat setting. Allow to heat for two hours, stirring every few minutes. Then, carefully strain the oil by using muslin. Straining the oil at least twice is recommended. If botanical material remains in the infused oil, the oil can go rancid.
